Now that it’s finally Spring, sunnier days are on the horizon at last and it’s not long until we can enjoy hot afternoons and bright evenings outdoors! After another cold and dark winter cooped up indoors, it's now time to focus on reconnecting with our outdoor spaces.
From being surrounded by four walls inside our homes, what better way to emphasise the transition to outside than to make sure your outdoor space reflects the natural surroundings. Why would you want to simply extend the indoors with materials and items that you can find inside, when you can instantly define your outside space as a separate escape and feel closer to your nature.
Avoid plastic chairs or loungers and choose items that are made from natural wood and sustainable materials to heighten your experience within your beautiful outdoor environment.
With spring arriving, and summer on its way, we have selected some of our favourite items that are guaranteed to create the perfect place for you to enjoy the hot weather and will ensure that you and your friends and family will make the most of your outside space this season. You can also view our entire outdoor collection here.
It’s time to be the envy of all your friends this summer because our bestseller is back! Made from British pine railway sleepers and steel that is hand-picked for quality, character and durability, our reclaimed style outdoor dining table will add interest to any outdoor space. Whether your outside space is full of leaves and greenery or if it is more a case of bricks and decking, introducing a bit of nature is always a good idea. Let the textures of the wood grains inject some much-needed nature into your less than natural outside spaces or simply level up your green garden area with a feature that will stand out but also blend into the natural environment. With enough space for the family to eat around, there really is no reason to not have a reclaimed style outdoor table.
Whether you will be planting vegetables, trimming hedges or just watering plants in your garden this spring, a bench is always a great addition to the outdoors so you can sit back and admire your hard work. Even if you don’t have green fingers, sitting on a bench with a cup of tea watching the birds in the trees and appreciating the sounds and sights of your garden is a great way to start your day. Our Metropolitan Acacia Outdoor Bench is perfect for creating a relaxing corner of your garden where you can escape to and take it easy. Built from stunning natural acacia wood in a timeless design, the corner bench will be right at home in any outside space, especially when paired with the matching table. Providing you with a stylish and sturdy place to step back from household and garden chores, the Metropolitan bench is a Spring/Summer must-have.
If your only outdoor space is a balcony or a small decked area, you certainly don’t want it to feel overcrowded and cramped. Our Metropolitan high bar set will help you make the most of your space and is also crafted from beautiful and natural acacia wood making it the perfect accompaniment to any deck or balcony. Bringing taller furniture onto your balcony not only adds an eye-catching dynamic but literally elevates the space making it feel larger by creating distance between you and the ground. High furniture is also thinner and so doesn’t take up as much floor space leaving you more room to make the most of. Regardless of whether you actually have a balcony or not, this two-seater set is cosy and stylish and will transform any small space into a social hub or an intimate alfresco dining spot.
No matter what you plan to do in your outside space this season, it is always better to do it in luxury. Whether you enjoy a leisurely morning with a coffee, an alfresco afternoon lunch or an evening spent catching up with friends, our Naro Acacia Outdoor Lounge Setwill make sure that you are doing it in style and comfort, what more could you ask for! Consisting of a two-seater sofa, two armchairs, and a coffee table there’s plenty of room to entertain and relax with family and friends this summer. The frames are crafted from durable acacia wood with a natural-look finish, making them perfect for the outdoors. The garden set also comes with a set of matching showerproof cushions, each thickly padded to provide you with a comfortable seating experience. Really make the most of the outdoors without having to compromise between style and comfort, and enjoy the summer sun with everyone gathered around.
The warmer weather and longer days don’t always mean we have to be outdoors with family and friends, sometimes it’s just nice to appreciate a sunny day alone. There's no better way to unwind outside and reflect on life than sitting in a big chair in a secluded corner with yourself. Our new-in Dandy outdoor lounge chairis perfect for soaking up some sun rays or diving into a good book in the peace and quiet of nature. Crafted from beautiful natural acacia wood and in a classic beach chair silhouette, the Dandy lounge chair is sure to become an iconic part of your outside space. This chair is also foldable for easy storage so it is a perfect choice for smaller spaces or if you want to declutter your garden after enjoying lounging outdoors. And if you want company whilst in the garden, you can always buy multiple!
Firstly, there’s no need to worry about our outdoor furniture when it rains as they are either built durably with waterproof properties to withstand the elements, are foldable for easy storage inside or can be covered to protect them when not in use. Of course, we do recommend periodically treating and re-finishing some of our timber furniture to keep it in the best possible shape. There is also an option to purchase an Aerocover with some of our sets. The Aerocover is water-resistant, breathable and provides UV protection meaning it is perfect to protect or cover your outdoor furniture when not in use or in bad weather.
Since British weather is less than reliable at the best of times and you will probably find yourself sheltering from the elements inside, it is important not to forget about indoor furniture. Our sustainable indoor furniture brings the same character, sturdiness and natural energy that our outdoor furniture possesses, but is simply made for the inside. Regardless of where your furniture will be, choosing sustainable options is always a good choice for your home and the planet. From our hand-made, customisable reclaimed dining tables to our reclaimed wood chairs, coffee tables and benches there’s always a space in the house for a sustainable piece of furniture.
