If you’re lucky enough to have a little (or a lot) of outdoor space where you live, there’s high chance you’ve been making the most of it this summer.
After all, there’s only a snippet of the year that feels balmy enough to gather friends, light the bbq, chill the rosé and sit amongst nature til late into the night.
While gardens do take a little maintenance, having some beautiful pieces of outdoor furniture can make all the difference in making your natural sanctuary as gorgeous as your interior.
Dot some succulents around, hang up some fairy lights, and voilà – you have a lovely, inviting outdoor space.
I’ve cherry-picked 5 inspiring outdoor furniture collections to add to your wish list. And, if you don’t have a garden, or the budget for some of these, one can dream 🙂
