What Furniture is Best in a Conservatory?
If you are planning to have a conservatory built or already have one that you want to work better for you, you need to know what furniture works best. In this way, you can buy the right pieces to make your conservatory feel part of your home.
Match the furniture to the style of your conservatory
If you have installed a conservatory with a classic Victorian or Edwardian style, pick furniture made from wrought iron or wicker. If you have gone for a modern style, continue the theme with simple furniture with legs to lift it off the floor to emphasise the light and feeling of space a conservatory brings.
Think about the lifestyle you want to live in your conservatory. If you want it as a space for spending time playing with your children, furniture that is relaxed and can be taken outdoors – such as bean bags, deck chairs and floor cushions in cheerful bright colours – might be just what you are looking for. If a more formal entertainment space is what you are after, opt for a stylish dining table and chairs.

Bring the outside inside
Botanical prints and a patterned tile floor are House & Garden’s top tips for making your conservatory a great space.
Natural materials such as rattan are an obvious fit, as they are not too far removed from the gardens and nature you will see from your conservatory. Wooden furniture works well and can help the flow from your home into your conservatory.
Softer colours of leafy greens, sky blues and pastel floral tones can feel a natural fit for soft furnishings and accessories.
Go for something different
If you want to avoid stereotypes and do something different, don’t shop for specific conservatory furniture; instead, choose comfy sofas and furnish your space with accessories and fittings you would use elsewhere in your home if you had space.
Just be aware that the fabrics you choose and the materials used in your furniture will have to withstand higher temperatures, direct sunlight and a different level of humidity in your conservatory to the rest of your house.
