The long, languid days of sunshine, salt water, pool parties, family barbecues and kicking back are finally here. So make the most of the season with an outdoor set-up fit for all manner of activities.
From al fresco dining to poolside lounging to convivial hosting and more, these are the essential pieces you need this summer season.
Offering the perfect centrepiece for gatherings of family and friends or for simply taking dinnertime outside, a solid dining table and chairs is crucial for any outdoor area. Not only will it facilitate conversation and allow you to take in the beauty of the season, but the right set will withstand the elements for seasons to come.
There’s nothing better than curling up in a sunny (or shady) spot with your favourite book, and these delightful daybeds are the ideal places to do just that. Comfortable, cosy and made to facilitate relaxed afternoons, these daybeds are essential for any well-furnished outdoor area.
Give your al fresco space some style with intriguing, sculptural design pieces that make a bold statement. Whether it be a uniquely-curved chair or a dining table that plays with brutalist proportions, these pieces will help you take your signature design style outside.
Simply put, a pool doesn’t feel complete without being surrounded by a suite of sleek loungers. Designed to help us soak in the summer rays, these loungers will make days by the pool a far more chic and definitely more comfortable affair.
After Dark Additions
Make the most of the season’s long, warm evenings by installing some strategic lighting in your outdoor space. From versatile table lamps to larger floor lights that cast a diffused, dappled glow, these pieces will set the perfect mood once the sun goes down.
Give yourself the perfect spot for reading, thinking and soaking up the sun with an outdoor occasional chair. Here, you can take a load off, put your feet up and recline in blissful peace.
Laid Back Living
Curate your exterior living space as carefully as you would your interior one. From a long, comfortable sofa (made with outdoor-appropriate coverings, of course) that invites laid-back lounging, to a central table, perfect for hosting nibbles and drinks, morning coffee or casual bites, this simple set-up is the easiest way to make the most of your terrace, garden or deck.
