With brighter days (almost!) guaranteed, catching up with friends over a summer picnic offers the perfect opportunity to catch some rays as you graze in the great outdoors. Prepping for an all-day feast? Lingering lunches spent soaking up the sunshine are all the more likely to run into social suppers, if you’re sitting comfortably. This month, transform the style and comfort of your get-togethers with plump cushions, handy serveware and a blanket big enough to lay everything out on, embracing calm tones and faded, natural textures for a relaxed look and feel.
Just the ingredient for a summer get-together, our Kimmeridge Folding Lunch Bag is perfect for packed lunches, day trips, picnics and more!

Finished with pale leather detailing and styled like a traditional knapsack, it’s perfect for keeping your lunch fresh and cool. What’s more, it’s part of the wider Kimmeridge collection that’s expertly crafted to elevate your on-the-move dining experiences.
Every home needs a trusty tote and this one’s a stylish choice to pack a little luxury, wherever you’re escaping to. Practical and highly durable, our Kimmeridge Large Tote Bag is made from tough ink coloured canvas and features contrasting natural leather handles. Its roomy design makes it easy to pack all you need for trips to the beach, park and festivals. It’s also the perfect companion for camping adventures – or can simply be used to provide an extra storage facility around the house.
Whether stylishly displaying canapés or arranging charcuterie, our Ash Serving Board ensures that food is kept within easy reach and ready for grazing. Designed with a curved rolled edge, this solid rectangular board comes with a hole for hanging, allowing its beautiful ash wood grain to be showcased when it’s not in use. Finished with a light oil to avoid staining, it works brilliantly for hosting cheese, cold meats, pastries, breads and more…just add delicious dips, fresh olives and nuts.
The flicker of candlelight keeps outdoor conversations flowing long after nightfall. As the sun starts to set, our glistening Oldbury Lantern is a beautiful choice if you’re looking to emit a warming glow across any picnic spot. Its lightweight glass shade sits on a chunky cement base that’s perfect for elevating alfresco suppers with a hint of industrial styling. For maximum impact, style the candle holder with chunky pillar candles. Top tip: light a citronella candle if you’re seeking something from the Oldbury Lantern that’s not just soul reviving; it’s sure to keep bugs away and add a magical ambience.
