Transforming your seating area into a beautiful feature


It is rare that seating is talked about as a feature, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Embracing seating as a garden feature can be a really effective way of creating a focal point for your outdoor space that is decorative as well as extremely practical. 
So, how to achieve this focal point? With beautiful garden arbours and rose arches, seating in your garden does not have to be unexciting. Below we have gathered our favourite methods of using either of these elegant structures to create an exquisite feature of seating in your garden. 

A Grand Feature 

If you have a big country garden this bespoke fruit cage is a quintessentially picturesque, standout feature. It could provide a sheltered seating area with garden benches or seating placed around the edge, or a table and chairs in the middle for dining.

Simple Pleasures

For a slightly simpler spot to catch the sun, this garden arbour is perfectly integrated with this outdoor space and therefore looks elegant. It would be ideal as a summer shelter for reading and relaxing.

Open spaces

In a similar style, this arbour is placed more dramatically which enhances it as a beautiful standalone feature. It looks perfect for summer dining and afternoon tea, providing an impressive place to entertain guests as well as giving shade from the sun.

Shelter from the sun

This bespoke arbour shows what a perfect dining area they can make, and how they can be an attractive and practical feature in your garden. Painted a lovely green, it stands out in a subtle way, complementing the rest of the garden perfectly. 

Subtle beauty

If space is limited, this arbour would be perfect to create a simple but stylish sheltered seating area. 

A contemporary arbour

This ready-made seating arbour is available on our online store. The fantastic thing about this wooden garden bench is that you can choose from eleven different colour finishes, making your product look unique and personal to your garden, as well as stylish and subtle. You can view our ready-made colour chart online and request a sample pack.



Rose Arches

A rose arch is a beautiful way to define a seating area, making an entrance that gives structure and adds height to your garden. For example this bespoke rose arch marks the entrance of this dining area in a contemporary way, adding great height and enhancing to this tiered garden. 
Alternatively, this ready-made rose arch is available online from £170 and is avaliable in different sizes with two trellis options and eleven different colours.
