What Type of Garden Furniture Does Kettler Make?

Kettler is one of the most popular garden furniture manufacturers in the UK. They offer a wide range of garden sets from large corner and dining sofa sets to small bistro sets and stylish egg chairs. Here we shall go in depth about the three top-selling Kettler ranges of garden furniture, along with the pros and cons of each.


Palma by Kettler

The Kettler Palma collection is one of their most popular ranges which consists of wicker furniture for all purposes. Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, the Palma range is versatile, stylish and comfortable. It is available in two colours; White Wash with Grey cushions & Oyster with Stone cushions to match any style of garden. The Palma collection offers luxurious lounging and dining sets in both corner and casual seating designs for the whole family to enjoy. These sets allow you to choose between a variety of tables including a glass or oak top, height-adjustable or the most in-demand option a gas fire pit table to provide warmth as well as space to eat. They also offer a mini corner sofa set as well as round dining sets if you have a smaller garden. The Palma range is made from high-quality aluminium frames that are strong and durable which are coated with a 5mm half-round synthetic wicker that is completely weatherproof and UV-resistant allowing it to be stored outside all year round.


Cora by Kettler

The Kettler Cora collection is fast becoming one of the most popular ranges of outdoor furniture. It offers a blend of wood and wicker for a classic-contemporary style that is ideal for all outdoor spaces. Known for its rustic yet modern styles, the Cora range has dining and lounge sets with space to fit up to 8 people or you can purchase tables and chairs separately to create your own perfect garden furniture set. The Acacia wood used in the Kettler Cora range is FSC approved and sourced from renewable forests only. This wood is UV-resistant and hardwearing to make sure it will keep its luxurious smoke-white finish. Because the wood used in the Cora range is of such a high quality, it can be left outside all year.


Elba by Kettler

 The Kettler Elba collection offers a beautiful blend of aluminium and wood for a modern take on traditional garden furniture. Available in either a grey or white powder-coated finish, the Elba range will stand out in your garden whilst inviting guests to lounge on its comfy sofas and chairs. Elba is extremely strong and durable and can be left outside without looking weathered over time. The powder-coated frames are resistant to rust and will not corrode as well as are completely waterproof. The cushions are thick with a foam core that can withstand the odd shower but we recommend removing them when you are finished using the furniture. The Elba range is available in lounge and dining styles and features weathered teak tabletops to add a beautiful contrast of steel and wood to your garden.

What Other Outdoor Furniture Does Kettler Offer?


The Kettler Aruba collection is a range that Kettler has launched which is different to anything they have made before. It features thick rope detailing on the dining and lounge chairs that are distinctive and innovative. It is ergonomically designed for maximum comfort and comes with thick, foam core cushions for a soft, luxurious lounging experience. Made from weatherproof materials, this range can be left outside all year round.

Other Wooden Furniture

Kettler offers a wide range of wooden garden furniture that offers a traditional and natural style including the Beach, Fiji & Adelaide lounge sets. All of these sets have their own unique design yet are based around a 2-3 seater sofa, two armchairs and a large coffee table for the ultimate lounging experience.

Other Rattan Furniture

Just like wood, there is a huge collection of rattan garden furniture to choose from in the Kettler range. The Charlbury collection is traditional wicker furniture with glass-top tables and comfortable seating. LaMode is fashionable garden furniture that has something for everyone, whether you require a lounge set to relax or a modern corner dining set for the whole family. Finally, there is the RHS collection which is the Royal Horticultural Society which has partnered with Kettler to show off the love of their gardens with a stylish and comfy range of wicker furniture.

Other Aluminium Furniture

Most often, contemporary aluminium garden furniture can be expensive. Kettler’s Menos range is luxurious, comfortable and most importantly affordable. The beauty of the Menos Versa collection is even though it has enough space for 4-8 people, it has been designed to save space by allowing you to store the chairs under the sofa when not in use.
Kettler Accessories: Accessories can elevate your garden furniture to the next level. Kettler offers a great range of cushion boxes to keep your garden furniture cushions conveniently stored away in a cool, dry place. A parasol or panalsol can bring comfort to your garden. Available in a range of sizes, styles and colours to fit all outdoor spaces they will provide shade on hot days with tilt mechanisms to allow you to angle towards the sun.

The cushions and seat pads on the Kettler range are showerproof and are capable of withstanding a small amount of rain but we do recommend removing all cushions and storing them away in a cool, dry place when not in use.

Care & Advice of your Kettler Garden Furniture

Care and Advice

Good quality garden furniture is an investment for your home so you need it to last as long as possible. Kettler prides itself on durable furniture however even the best quality materials will need some TLC to keep them looking new. Here are some tips and tricks to prolong the life of your furniture.

  • Wood Furniture Care: Hardwoods such as Acacia and Teak are used which are more durable than softwood. Wood should be cleaned with a wet cloth or soft-bristled brush and soapy water at least once a year. We recommend cleaning in the autumn before the colder months arrive. You can maintain the natural colour of the wood by applying a wood treatment instead of regular oil which can be 4 times more effective.
  • Wicker Furniture Care: More durable than natural wicker, synthetic wicker is utilised which requires less maintenance. We recommend brushing the wicker first to remove leaves and debris then use warm, soapy water and a soft cloth to wipe the dirt away rinse all soapy water off and leave to dry.
  • Aluminium Furniture Care: Aluminium garden furniture can be left outside all year and requires next to no maintenance. We recommend covering aluminium furniture when not in use and cleaning it with a damp cloth and warm, soapy water.

Not Just For The Garden

Kettler furniture is not just designed for outdoor use. Make the most of your indoor space with a piece of sleek and luxurious conservatory furniture set. Wicker, wood and rope are superb choices of materials for conservatories, orangeries and summer houses as they mimic the comfort of your living room sofa. If you lack space in your conservatory but still desire comfortable furniture, there is a superb range of compact armchairs with footstools and small bistro tables for easy access to your morning coffee.

Outdoor Heating by Kettler

The Kalos collection by Kettler has a great range of stunning electric patio heaters as well as gas fire pits and fire pit coffee tables with eye-catching designs to enhance your outdoor living experience. The Kalos gas fire pits are extremely popular thanks to their unique style.
