If you want to decorate the garden chairs, we recommend taking into account the weather they’ll be exposed to if you place them outdoors.

On the other hand, if they’re going to be indoors or in a closed space, then you have more options with the design because they’ll be protected.

You can decorate wooden chairs with flowers and green leaves falling down the back. This is a way to decorate and make the set more natural as if the seat has a direct link to the countryside.

Another option is to hang small pots on the handles or the backs. These could contain flowers or other vegetables. Of course, they should be small, since they have no purpose other than decorating.

Hanging garlands on the back of a seat are very attractive. Chains or lights can be put together to beautify and decorate. It’s the best way to achieve a degree of color and harmony with the seat while maintaining a direct connection with the space around it.

3. Surfaces with plain colors
