From hanging chairs to sofa sets, there is more choice than ever when it comes to comfortable garden furniture with cushions.

Modern garden furniture is more functional, great-looking and comfortable than ever but it often comes with bulky cushions and storing them can be a big problem.
Many garden furniture sets come with waterproof cushions, they’ll be fine left out for the odd shower but it’s not recommended to let them soak through in a downpour. Cheaper furniture may not have weatherproof cushions so they’ll need to be regularly stored away.
We’ve rounded up eight of the best items of garden furniture with storage for cushions to make life that little bit easier:
