With the busy bank holiday behind us, it's time to savour some peaceful moments at home. Comfort is key when you’re planning a place to rest and recharge. If there’s just two of you taking time to recline, we’ve the perfect furniture for enjoying coffee, brunch or a glass of wine outdoors. Whilst twin sets, pairs of armchairs and two-seater sofas are perfectly sized to accommodate you and a plus one, they’re also ideal for making the most of a small exterior space, such as a compact courtyard or a balcony. We’ve rounded up our best buys below.
If you want to stay chatting long into the evening, chose sturdy, supportive chairs with arms. Creating a mini lounge outdoors is easy with our Luccombe Armchair Set , or Pair of Hampstead Armchairs. Crafted from strips of PE bamboo, the Hampstead’s natural-coloured weatherproof design also features a supportive Windsor-style curved back and deep seats, which are enhanced by a pad and back cushion in contrasting off-white, allowing you to sit comfortably in your Scandinavian-inspired living space.
Sunny days are synonymous with enjoying leisurely breakfasts in the sun, accompanied by the papers. Our Pair of Colwell Dining Chairs are ideal for outdoor dining but if you’re looking for designs that you can easily store out of sight when not in use, our adaptable and elegant Carrick Table and Chair Set could be the perfect fit for your patio, courtyard or balcony. Saving on space, without compromising on style, the set - crafted from raw teak and neutral polyrope - is compact and fully foldable.
If outdoor space is at a premium, it needs to work twice as hard. Alongside our Colwell 2 Seater Sofa which has bags of nautical character and mid-century charm, our West Strand Sofa is perfect for smaller patios and decking. Available as a 2- or 3-seater, you can create your own flexible outdoor lounge with one of each design, or double up on just the one size, placing it in the sunniest spot in your garden. The feeling of being immersed in nature is just the tonic when you’re enjoying some downtime, isn’t it? Good news is that the West Strand Sofa includes matching showerproof cushions in our signature charcoal colourway, for ultimate comfort and durability.
