Garden furniture worth investing in

So far, 2020 has brought us some unexpected twists and turns. If there’s one thing for certain, it’s that we’re getting to know our own space better than we ever thought possible. 
Taking some time outside with lots of fresh, breezy air and plenty of vitamin D is even more vital than usual, and research shows that moods lift and positivity soars when the sun is out (yes, even in the UK!). So sprucing up whatever patch we have outside of our four walls – be that a garden, shared lawn, courtyard or balcony, has bunny-hopped right to the top of our to-dos. 
Whatever space you have, from postage stamp patio or acres of rolling lawn, getting outside has become a must, and it’s time our long-neglected outside areas got some TLC. Here are the pieces we think are worth shelling out for this summer – to add a touch of luxury where, at the moment, we know we’ll appreciate it most.

Solo serenity

If you live alone, it’s easy to think that a beach towel or yoga mat is all you need to kick back and enjoy some relaxation in your garden. While no one’s arguing that that doesn’t get the job done, they don’t call us Extra for nothing. We’ll be loading this Aurora Garden Chair & Footstool Set into our basket, asap. 

Teamed with a simple Outdoor Acacia Square Storage Box to double up as storage for cushions and throws, and a table for our cuppa and book. We’re already feeling extremely accomplished. It is worth noting that Acacia wooden furniture is one of the most durable when it comes to the outdoors, a hardwood that will last well, even through a classic British winter. Find more of our Acacia furniture range here.

And last but certainly not least, this Hanging Garden Chair is perfect for a veranda or patio and is both comfy and cosy for late, lazy evenings outside. The dream!

Time for two

Everyone knows that those British Summertime evenings are super dreamy, and there’s nothing we love more than watching the sun dip behind the clouds as the birds chirp and someone pours us a tall glass of something cold, our favourite tunes drifting from the speakers. 

This Marbella 3 piece garden set is the perfect addition to your garden, patio or balcony. It's simple yet stylish and comes in 3 versatile colours. Just what you need for watching the sunset with a beverage, or enjoying your morning coffee!

The Barbados Garden Day Bed is a serious treat, and fab for both evening dwellers and daytime sun-worshippers – it’s canopy can be retracted for maximum rays or sultry shade, and its clever space-saving frame means half its base can disappear into the other whenever you need it to.Eating, drinking and being merry

For bigger families or those who love having friends around, the Honolulu 6 Seater Garden Dining Set is a stylish, spotlight piece for European-style al fresco soirees. Choose from two colours of cushion covers and load up the acacia wood table top with delicious dishes grilled on the barbie… we can almost smell it now!

This Jakta AM.PM table is another great option for bigger families, in the hardwood Acacia we mentioned earlier and is sure to make a massive impact too, with its stylish and timeless design. Shop for accompanying chairs here.
