From city balconies to country gardens, our outdoor furniture ideas will help you make the most of your space with table-and-chair sets and comfy sofas to suit every garden size and budget
Make your garden a social space with an outdoor sofa
Choose comfortable, weather-proof outdoor seating. Our Marlow corner sofa and armchair provide plenty of room for everyone to spread out and look great arranged around the matching coffee table. Think of your outside space as an extra room and use a colour theme for a pulled-together look. Spruce up the space with a lick of paint and add pots of plants to make it feel welcoming. Weather-proof outdoor cushions will maximise the comfort-factor, while throws will beat the evening chill. Add outdoor lighting to create a gorgeous glow.
Create an outdoor dining room with a garden table and chair set
Make the most of the lighter evenings and warmer weather by eating outside at every opportunity – from mid-week dinners to weekend breakfasts and barbecues. Set the scene with a smart table and chair set such as the Lois four-seater outdoor dining set (pictured) or the chic Porto six-seater dining table and benches. Make dining outdoors a special occasion every time with colourful picnicware and glasses that look like the real thing and invest in a parasol if the space will be in direct sunlight for some (or all) of the day.
Small space? No problem!
If your outdoor space is on the smaller side, look for cleverly designed furniture that will make the most of whatever space you do have. Create a place to relax with a set of two garden armchairs and matching coffee table in a gorgeous shade of green from our Lois range, which is designed with small spaces in mind. Transform your balcony or patio into a modern outdoor dining room with the Lois two-seater bistro set or give it the feel of a Mediterranean pavement café with the Madeira bistro table and chairs. No room for a table and chair set? A bench adds seating but takes up less space. Maximise the holiday-at-home vibes with a jug of something chilled and pots of herbs to scent the air.
