This sophisticated new outdoor furniture range has us planning a summer like no other

Since 1976, outdoor furniture brand Devon has held key tenets of style, comfort, colour and durability at the core of its sensibility, and its new Rere Collection is no different. Encompassing a comprehensive range of beautifully crafted pieces, this latest release is set to elevate outdoor spaces with the ease and sophistication the brand is known and lauded for.

Designed in New Zealand by Devon Managing Director Matthias Strickett, the collection makes a feature of gently rounded edges, inspired by the soft, natural beauty of rocks worn over time by the elements. In fact, the name Rere is taken from Gisborne’s Rere Rockslide, one of Aotearoa’s most beloved and breathtaking nature attractions.

The full collection caters to all manner of exterior arrangements, whether you intend to entertain with dining settings, bar leaners and bar stools, or if lounging is the top priority, sun loungers and a lounge chair, or a two-seater, will facilitate this in style. A side table and coffee table complete the offering, which utilises mixed materials in all of its framing — aluminium, teak and hand-woven marine rope.

All the Rere tables are available with a full teak top, or teak with ceramic inlay, and while the collection has been designed with smaller balconies and courtyards in mind, it is equally at home in more generously spaced surroundings. With an emphasis on indoor/outdoor flow of utmost importance within many a contemporary, design-led home, Devon has made sure to craft its Rere pieces with such consideration that they would look as elegant inside as they do out.

With current lead times of six months, we suggest you get onto ordering your Devon Rere pieces if you intend to enjoy al fresco living as much as we do this summer.
