Antique Garden Furniture
Antique garden furniture and ornamentation is a great way to introduce character to an outside space, whether a sprawling garden, a small patio or even a balcony.
Antique garden furniture was built to last almost without exception, with both the materials and the craftsmanship involved being of a far greater quality than we expect from the modern equivalents.
If you are looking for a focal point it can be created with antique garden ornaments. The practice of garden embellishment originated with the Romans, who displayed copies of Greek statues in their villa gardens. Later, during the Renaissance period, Roman statuary was recovered to be incorporated into Italian gardens.
There is an enormously diverse range of garden furniture styles. Antique cast iron garden furniture goes far beyond the ornate Rococo style to the elegance of Regency design. There are also examples of gothic, arts and crafts and aesthetic pieces to name but a few! These are often sturdier and longer lasting than antique wooden garden furniture and they can also be painted in any colour of choice, or even leave the patina from decades of use.
Gardens can be intriguing places as well as places of leisure, rest and contemplation. Antique garden statues can create a focus or point of interest in a garden scheme. For example, Antique garden urns reflect the Roman and Greek vases of old. They are often made from terracotta, cast iron, stone and marble which all weather to develop a patina over the centuries. These can very quickly evoke the elegance and intrigue of a classical garden.
Our selection of Antique stone garden ornaments are often reclaimed from historic buildings, stately homes or important landmarks that have either been demolished or remodelled.
Perhaps the most dramatic of all garden ornamentation is the antique garden fountain. Not only do they create visual impact, but they can also create a variety of sounds, from the merest trickle of water in the background to a majestic cascade. Whichever one you choose, it is bound to be a showstopper.
