Ideas, Ideas, Ideas...
Furnishing a conservatory or garden room gives you the opportunity to use new ideas, different materials and styles of furniture you haven't used in other parts of your home. Mahogany pieces, heavily upholstered armchairs, elaborate window treatments, or modern minimalism do not belong here. You can use Lloyd loom, woven rattan and wicker and usual natural materials like woven seagrass and banana leaf (abaca) - all from sustainable sources.
A very different room
The environment of a conservatory is, quite literally, different from the other rooms in your house — the humidity will be higher, as will the levels of natural light, and it may experience periods of intense heat and rapidly changing temperature. You can take advantage of the environment by growing unusual specialist plants from around the world (in fact this was the original idea behind owning a conservatory), but you must select furniture with these conditions in mind.
The most popular and practical choices for furniture for conservatories and garden rooms are rattan, willow or Lloyd Loom. Metal and glass are also suitable and stone, mosaic and marble top tables are an excellent choice if you intend to use your conservatory as an informal dining room. More comfortable, but casual, upholstered armchairs and sofas are fine to use in a garden room, where a solid roof reduces the levels of light.
