by | Apr 6, 2022 | News, Product News, Products | 0 comments

A new study by garden furniture retailer, Moda Furnishings, has looked into a variety of data sources to see what types of gardens people are looking at for inspiration this year, their favourite colours, furniture trends, flowers and more. As spring is here people are looking to give their garden a refresh or maybe even a total makeover. Moda Furnishings has put together its 2022 Garden Trend Report showing all the most popular garden trends.

As warm weather hits the UK people are beginning to plant their flowers for the spring and summer seasons. Moda analysed search patterns to discover what flowers people were most interested in as spring approaches. Violets came out on top with more than 659,000 searches and tulips were not far behind in second with 558,100 searches.

The study analysed Pinterest data and was able to find the number of pins used for each key term to determine which ones people were getting the most excited about. The winner was ‘Colourful gardens’ with almost 1.5 million pins in users’ inspiration boards, showing that people are wanting a splash of colour in their garden as we move closer to the warmer and longer days. Coming in a very close second is ‘Natural gardens’ with 1.3 million pins, which shows that people are taking inspiration from the current climate to create more natural-looking spaces.

Moda also looked at what colours seem to be trending this year when searching for garden furniture, flowers and accents. The most popular colours people were incorporating into their gardens are natural colours like greens, nudes, whites and greys or pastels, blues, purples and surprisingly yellow.  

With the warmer weather and longer days on the horizon people might be looking for some furniture to kit out their garden or balcony, but the big question is what type of furniture are people looking at this year? Rattan garden furniture took the top of the list with almost 9.1X as many searches as the second place, wooden furniture.

As we all know trends come and go so sometimes the best way to spruce up your garden is with an accent piece. Moda looked at searches across garden furniture trends to see which trends are booming this year. Firepits have quickly risen to the top of the list this year with the always favourite “egg chair” close behind.
