Fancy a midcentury modern sofa and armchair in the garden? The Jonah retro garden seating at Made could help you do just that.
Does the name sound familiar? It might well do. The Jonah seating range has been produced for inside as well as outside in the past, although it doesn’t seem to be part of the current range. Which is a shame as it was a good-looking and functional design.
But you can get it for the outdoors. Originally offered in black, it is now available in a more appealing natural finish and in light of the amount of time many of us are spending outdoors right now, I can see it being a popular addition to the range.
It takes a classic, midcentury modern shape and takes it outdoors. So curved arms, a sloping back, and tapered legs in a contrasting black for support.
In terms of the outdoors, the frame is made of a durable polyrattan, with a single seat cushion that’s removable if the3 weather turns nasty and metal legs that should be with you for the long haul. I’ve got something similar I picked up last year and it still looks like new now, despite the nasty weather that has appeared on and off over the last 12 months.
In terms of sizes, you can opt for the three-seater sofa, a two-seater sofa or if you want to be alone, an armchair too. They work individually or you could set up your own living room outside by buying more than one.
As for the price, the three-seater is £725, the two-seater sells for £595 and the armchair is yours for £375. As I said, a black finish too, but it doesn’t look as good as the natural to these eyes.
Note also that Made has recently introduced full sets too, which take the design idea of the Jonah and push it up a notch in terms of scale. So rather than just going for individual items for seating, you can opt for a full lounge or dining set – albeit for your garden! With the weather set fine for some time, that might not be a bad option if you like hanging out in the garden.
Take your pick from the two sets pictured here. Those are the Garden Corner Dining Set, with a corner sofa, benches and a table, as well as the Garden Lounge Set, which is a sofa, two chairs and a coffee table.
As for price, they retail for £1,895 and £1,450 respectively. All are available now at Made.com.
