Wrought Iron Patio Furniture

   

 

WROUGHT IRON BENCHIn the past, as now, it was considered fashionable to have stylish outdoor furniture. Many people had both outdoor eating and socializing areas. Needless to say, antique garden furniture on display was exquisite. No veranda or garden was complete without wrought iron patio furniture, lawn settee, or outdoor wrought iron table. Seating arrangements would be attractive and ornate with wrought iron benches a popular choice for the garden or veranda.

WROUGHT IRON BENCH
 

No Victorian veranda or garden was complete without its patio furniture, lawn settee, or outdoor bench. The gardens and verandas were often as extravagantly furnished as the accompanying house or mansion. These seating arrangements would be attractive and comfortable, adding to the coziness of an "indoor living-room" to the charms of the outdoor garden. As much thought was put into choosing outdoor furniture as was in the furnishing of the home. Seating arrangements would be attractive and ornate with wrought iron seating a popular choice for the garden or veranda. Below are examples of garden furniture available to the discerning homeowner. Maybe they are not as comfortable as today's outdoor patio furniture and garden furniture designs -- lounge chairs, lawn chairs and hammocks -- but they are very elegant.

 
WROUGHT IRON TABLE
 

WROUGHT IRON TABLE: TRICLININIUM, 1870s: At first glance, the outdoor wrought iron chairs in the above illustration seem to be carelessly placed around a small center wrought iron table, yet on close examination it is seen that they are all securely fastened to the pedestal of the table, and are all joined together to form one piece of patio furniture.

Wrought Iron Benches

WROUGHT IRON BENCH, 1850s: This wrought iron bench is lighter than than a heavy large design iron bench, therefore more easily moved from place to place in an outdoor garden. It is adapted to be fixed under the shade of a tree in a home garden, or divided into four compartments.
