Finally the weather seems to be turning a corner and spring is definitely in the air! Not only are we feeling more positive about this but we are also looking forward to getting back to a more normal life as lockdown restrictions begin to ease. With careful steps we can soon make plans to welcome our friends and families back into our gardens and enjoy some much awaited quality time together.

As this luxury has been off limits for so long, the need for socialising and recreation with our loved ones has never felt so important. This is reflected in the immediate interest in our outdoor living and gardening products. Garden furniture in particular is selling fast, so if you are considering hosting a delayed party, a gathering or an event in your garden later this year, you’ll need to get organised before we sell out.

At Van Hage, we stock one of the widest ranges of Garden Furniture in the UK - whether you need a Bench, a Parasol, a Lounger or a designer outdoor furniture set, we've got just what you need. Each piece is superbly designed and crafted by our trusted suppliers to withstand the toughest weather conditions whilst still offering comfort, style and great value for money. Here are four of our main suppliers’ top picks for you which we think you’ll love (some are pre-order only).

We are so excited that new stock of the popular Leisuregrow Garden Furniture has just arrived, but it won’t be around for long! Hang out in one of our most popular products – the Leisuregrow Salzburg Single Egg Chair or the Leisuregrow Santa Fe Single Hanging Rope Chair . These chairs come with a premium weave shell and season-proof, grey slate cushions which can be left out all season long. The cushions dry quickly so that you can use within just hours of getting them wet - brilliant! Both are ideal for a smaller garden or for a quiet secluded corner of a larger space where you can get away from it all and really relax.

If it’s ‘tea for two’ then you might want to consider the Leisuregrow Turin Bistro Set for 2 or the Leisuregrow Turin Duo Set For 2. Both are lightweight and maintenance free and again with season-proof cushions. All you have to do is boil the kettle and open the biscuits!

Another of our reputable garden furniture suppliers is Norfolk Leisure which offers an excellent range of furniture options and is also selling very fast. For larger gatherings you might want to consider the Norfolk Norfolk Leisure Life Timber Deluxe Corner Set (pre-order only) with the added benefits of an adjustable table, the Mallorca Lounge set , the Soho Corner with Arms or the Soho Corner with Side Tables. All feature weatherproof cushions, very low maintenance and lightweight, rust proof aluminium frames.

Hartman, another fine example of master craftsmanship when it comes to garden furniture, is a fabulous alternative for you to consider this season. Our top picks for you are Hartman Somerton 3 Seat Lounge Set (pre-order only), Hartman Somerton Square Firepit Lounge Set (pre-order only) and the Hartman Somerton 6 Seat Rectangle Set with Parasol & Base . Again with this range you will enjoy a modern style to outdoor living with low maintenance, lightweight aluminium frames and weatherproof cushions.

Finally, for a completely different look this year, how about the TOBS Faux Rattan Folding Lounge Set (for pre order only)? We have three duo sets in particular we’d like to share with you that features in three different colours. Choose from Natural/Grey, Copper or Green! This contoured folding lounge set manufactured with a strong steel frame and recycled woven sling these chairs are amazingly comfortable. Wipe clean chairs and toughened glass top table makes this set ideal for picnics or days out due to the light weight folding frame. Easily stores away when not in use.

Sometimes a set of new cushions is exactly what we need to breathe new life into our garden furniture and at Van Hage we have a range to do just that. Keeping our new furniture looking pristine during the Winter months can be tricky if you don’t have space in the garage or shed so you might want to consider a cover and accessories too.
