What is modular furniture?

When looking at inspiration for outdoor furniture, we’ve all seen great, big arrangements that look so inviting; perfect for gatherings in a garden or around a pool, and we wonder: 'How is that made?'

More often than not, it’s modular furniture.

• Connect Collection by Cane-line

The term ‘modular’ refers to individual pieces of furniture, or ‘modules’, that can be put together with other modules to flexibly tailor a space to your liking.

The sky’s the limit with how creative you can be!

How does it work?

Different brands will have a variety of options you can choose from in their ranges of modular furniture.

A basic arrangement could be a left and right 2 seater sofa together and a coffee table in the middle for a simple, yet cosy set.

The joys of modular furniture means the pieces you have can be reconfigurable at any time, and you can always add more to your collection depending on your own personal style.

We understand there may be a lot of choice when you first begin looking into the perfect pieces for your modular set, so we've created something to give you a little helping hand.

Our modular collection pages help you to "Get the look" meaning you can get your desired set with a few taps or clicks of a button.
