ALL THINGS AL FRESCO

Make the most of your garden this summer.

Perhaps the very best bit of Summer is eating in the garden, enjoying a glass of wine with friends (whilst the kids let off steam on the trampoline) before sharing a bbq or Spanish style tapas, bread and cheese.

And nothing beats a bowl of strawberries and cream al fresco, especially if it's Wimbledon!

We've got lots of great garden furniture for you to relax on, from stools and coffee tables, to small sofas and full dining sets with tables and chairs, plus parasols and matching recliners.

Classic wicker-style garden furniture - most famously Lloyd Loom - is given a contemporary twist, with waterproof materials and glass topped tables making things more practical and durable. You can properly spread out and enjoy the luxury of putting your feet up in the sunshine.

The Voyage Sofa Set is a lovely option, with comfy removable cushions and a coffee table for resting glasses, plates and books. Parasols come in various designs, this one arching over the furniture so it doesn't get in the way which is a really neat idea.


The Orchid 6 piece sofa set is another stylish option, giving you lots of scope. I love the way the two square stools fit snuggly under the table when you're not using them, or pull out easily for extra guests. They work as footstools too of course, which is ideal if you want to stretch out for a snooze!

The wicker-effect gives the furniture a natural, organic feel which is perfect for a garden setting.
