In preparation for the warmer weather, we’d like to share with you some of our favourite outdoor garden pieces to entertain and dine alfresco in style. Plus, our key tips on getting the best when shopping for your outdoor furniture. We’re talking about quality, functionality and style. What we like to call The Longest Stay trifecta.
Founded in NYC in 2008, with its European base in The Netherlands, Oasiq brings us a vintage-inspired collection with modern and contemporary lines. We love the Maro collection as an example of elegant and relaxed vibes. The simple woven design with a proportioned teak frame makes it a practical and sturdy option.
Consider teak and woven fabrics when you’re buying outdoor furniture as these are materials that will stand the test of time and the changing weather conditions.
Style & Comfort
We can’t welcome the summer without welcoming dashes of colour, vibrant glassware, enveloping shapes and unique garden furniture pieces. The Moroso Tropicalia chair uses weaving techniques and a varied weft of threads to achieve a complex geometrical aesthetic.
Whilst, the O-nest chair hugs your body and features an embossed floral texture—a hallmark of its designer—Tord Boontje. Team the O-nest with the supernatural collection for an eclectic mix of shapes. They’re all suitable for outdoor and indoor use so feel free to experiment!
Use playful experimentation when you’re creating your outside environment to showcase unexpected colour combinations that are a treat to the eye.
If you’re looking for soft curves with a historical nod to yesteryear look no further than Oxleys. For over 20 years Oxleys have been producing the finest quality cast aluminium and fabricated aluminium outdoor furniture in their Cotswold factory. Their re-launching of traditional English designs from the 18th century made their brand unique.
Consider the contrasts your furniture will create against nature. This particular style accentuates a romantic aesthetic, so think about what aesthetic you want to portray with your choice of garden furniture before you commit. We’re always here to guide you so get in touch if you’re unsure.
Before you commit to a garden furniture set, ensure that you’ve taken the correct measurements not just of the furniture itself and the space you’re looking to design but also of how you’ll get the furniture into your home.
One of our favourite tricks is to draw the actual furniture on a piece of kraft paper and place it in the space and carry it across doorways and halls. Just remember, paper folds – furniture doesn’t!
