Also called garden companion seats, or garden love seats – tete-a-tete furniture sets are cosier joint seating pieces designed for smaller areas.
They’re a great alternative if you don’t have the space for larger outdoor furniture like sofas and chairs. And they’re sometimes conjoined by a shared table for convenience.
The main difference between benches and tete-a-tete furniture sets is simple – Tete-a-tete sets are generally joined together with a table. But there are other parts they differ on:
• Benches are generally longer with room for up to 3 people side-by-side.
• Tete-a-tete furniture can be made in a range of relaxed and lounged positions whereas benches are more upright.
• You can find covered and protected benches (or Garden Arbours), but there’s no tete-a-tete equivalent.
Bistro tables are typically smaller than dining tables, so they are limited on space, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a nice, intimate alfresco meal.
After giving it a wipe down, you should always have something between your utensils and the table for protection – a table cloth or place mats are ideal. On that note, you probably don’t have enough space for silver service dining, so go with bowl food or smaller courses and plates. And we suggest only placing out the cutlery you need, leave the dessert spoons inside until you need them. Similarly for your cups and glasses, keep them to a minimum – probably a water glass and one other receptacle each – and remember your coasters!
If you have space and want to add table decoration think about candles at night time or a vase with flowers in the daytime. But remember, you’re already in your garden surrounded by nature, so that may be all the decoration you need.
In smaller gardens, a tete-a-tete furniture set is perfect for a patio to overlook your small, but perfectly formed slice of nature. If you have more space, the placement choices are endless.
Why not put your tete-a-tete seating in a hidden area surrounded by flowers for a more romantic choice? Or place it near your pond to enjoy the fishes with a glass of wine in hand.
You could even situate it near your most fragrant flowers so you and your other half can enjoy the aroma as your read your favourite books with a drink?
