Read on for our five top picks of outdoor furniture sure to help kick start summer in style.
1. A Monochrome Look
If you’re fan of minimalist al fresco furniture, you’ll love the monochrome look of the ‘Floret’ range with its simple yet elegant design. Pictured in Gunmetal and also available in White, the seamless shape of this range makes for comfortable outdoor dining furniture that fits perfectly into a variety of al fresco areas – modern, traditional, or even a tropical-inspired outdoor space.
Featuring an aluminium rust-resistant frame, and chairs moulded for superior comfort, the ‘Floret’ is ideal for outdoor entertaining.
Need options? There are five different chairs to choose from that can be mixed and matched with the dining table to create the distinctive look that you desire.
As the finishing touch, add your favourite greenery to oversized clear glass vases or bowls and place strategically on the dining table for instant interest. Add another layer of plush comfort to your outdoor chairs with our ‘Avoca’ outdoor cushions range boasting on-trend colours, textures, and designs sure to add a pop of colour to your outdoor sanctuary.
2. Keep It Trendy With Timber
The ‘Alias’ outdoor furniture range exudes trendy sophistication through its dark aluminium framing and a table top constructed with light teak timber slats – a timeless design that is built to last and perfect for entertaining all year round.
You also have the option to choose between a bench setting or dining chairs.
Once again, if you’re going for a certain look, the 5 different chair options (pictured further up the page) can be mixed and matched with the dining table to suit your style.
Make your timber outdoor furniture pop with personality by adding outdoor cushions in fun and colourful patterns. The timber table top looks stunning on its own, but it also makes for a great spot for décor accents like a vase full of spring foliage, scented candles, or even a bowl of seasonal fruit. One or two accent pieces are enough to keep your outdoor entertaining space interesting!
3. Concrete Table And Bench Tops
Planning to host a BBQ this spring? The bench setting of the ‘Munich’ outdoor furniture creates intimacy with its communal set up that is perfect for family mealtimes and casual afternoon gatherings with friends.
The rustic charm of the ‘Munich’ setting creates a relaxing space to entertain with its solid Acacia timber construction and durable fibreglass/cement table and bench top.
Dress up the bare cement tabletop with a jar of flowers or add a simple hurricane with a tea light candle for ambience.
Choose your style! This setting not only offers a rustic charm to your outdoor area, it also offers multiple configurations. Style your space with the stunning 3-piece bench setting – spacious enough for the whole family. Opt for a more classic feel with the 5-piece bench and stool combination (as shown above), or feel trendy with the 7-piece bench and wicker chair setting – it’s sure to impress all your guests.
