With Summer creeping around the corner, many of us are considering investing in a brand new set of garden furniture but what type of furniture should you pick? Have you a large patio area or are you confined for space? We supply a full range of cast aluminium and rattan garden furniture ranging from bistros to 8 seaters and all sizes in between so you are sure to find your perfect garden furniture set. 

Rattan Furniture


Once you sit back and relax in any of our rattan sets you will not want to get back up. Our rattan sets combine style, comfort and practicality and will be an investment for your garden area. People are often reluctant to go for a rattan set. Can I leave it outside? Will it outstand our weather? Is it durable? Well, the answer to all 3 questions is yes, yes and YES! We use the highest grade of weatherproof rattan to ensure it outstands the harsh Irish weather conditions and allows you to leave it outside all year round. The rattan is then woven around a cast aluminium frame which means that it will not rust! We have a range of flat and half rounded weave for you to choose from and are available in bistro sets, 4, 6 & 8 seaters both round and rectangle. 

Our Cast Aluminium Furniture


Here at Rathwood, we have a beautiful range of cast aluminium furniture which is sure to bring some life to your garden. Whether you want a small 4 seater for a secluded area or a large 8 seater for entertaining family and friends we have it all. Why not accessorise your garden furnther with our fabulous selection of aluminium bistros and benches which are sure to brighten up your garden area. Our aluminium furniture is practical and durable and is ideal for those looking for a low maintenance set! It can be left outdoors all year round as it will not rust! We have stackable chairs available too making them convenient for storage. Our metal sets are also very comfortable. You will enjoy many a summers evening sitting out with friends and family.

Cube Sets


A cube set is an ideal garden set for those who are confined for space yet still require ample seating space. Under each chair, there is an ottoman which can be used for extra seating when needed or as a footstool when you are relaxing with a book and a cup of coffee, this means our 4 seater cubes can turn into 8 seaters while our 6 seaters can turn into 12 seaters - ideal for when entertaining big numbers. Its clever design allows everything to be packed away neatly underneath the table and will not take up the whole patio space when not in use. 

Casual Sofa Dining Sets


Our Casual corner sofa dining sets are perfect for chilling out on or for enjoying a meal with family and friends. There is lots of seating space for everyone or lots of space for you when you want to lie down and relax. A corner set is perfect for both dining and relaxing. There are 3 stools with each set too which are used as extra seating space too. Comfortable, stylish and durable, a corner set is the perfect addition to your patio area.
