Country furniture: classification and design (24 photos)


Selecting furniture for the suburban area, many are guided by the criteria of convenience, reliability and low cost. However, country furniture items are available for independent production, and not only traditional (wood, metal), but the most unexpected and unusual materials are used. This makes the country landscape a highlight and makes it unique.





According to the functional, the dacha furniture is divided into two groups:

  1. Stationary These include heavy garden benches and tables, which, as a rule, are firmly fixed in the space provided and are not subject to movement.
  2. Mobile. To this group of furniture belong light and compact furniture items, which at the end of the summer season can be easily transferred from the street to the house or warehouse.

The key indicator in accordance with which furniture oriented for country conditions is differentiated is the material used for its manufacture.



Country wood furniture

Wood remains the most common and convenient material in processing. Home craftsmen use to work any surplus (timber, planks) remaining after construction. Using conventional tools (saw, plane, hammer) you can create a stylish interior, since country furniture made of wood, well polished and varnished, looks harmonious and presentable in any conditions.

Exclusive garden furniture from the array will create an elegant corner, united by a single style. To make it yourself, you will need not only suitable material, but also skills to work with many tools.

Offered by many companies working to order, furniture items made of solid wood, at their relatively high cost, conquer with a noble appearance. They are distinguished by high rigidity, lack of loose edges.



All accessories and fasteners on the elements of furniture made of solid wood, held tightly and securely. If necessary, you can purchase individual modules in the stores and independently create an ensemble. In this case, the country furniture from the array will look not only respectable, but also emphasize the artistic taste of the owners.



It should be noted that, being a component of the landscape, garden furniture made of wood, performed independently, must necessarily go through a stage of treatment with formulations that protect against rotting and increase resistance to fire. One of the best-selling options is pine garden furniture, which, while preserving the natural texture of wood, organically coexists with greenery, creating an atmosphere of comfort and coziness.

Lightweight plastic garden furniture is becoming increasingly popular, featuring a wide range of colors and imitation of wood texture.

If there is a desire to improve a corner on the territory with an interesting design, then you can try to install the formwork and cast the intended shape. The budget is the garden furniture made of plywood, which can be pasted over with veneer, giving it the nobility of valuable wood species.

Made with fantasy beautiful garden furniture becomes a bright accent of the landscape. Chairs look like exclusive ones, which are used dug into the ground or stumps remaining after sanitary pruning. If you attach a forged or woven back to them, make a soft seat and armrests, you get a comfortable chair.
