outdoor furniture edit image

It’s the season for outdoor furniture, so feast your eyes on this image of two chairs and a table by a pool. Doesn’t it look heavenly? We have plenty more where that came from, so lie back, slide on your sleekest sunnies, and relax with our outdoor furniture edit.

Outdoor furniture is in, and I have to be honest, finding gorgeous images for this edit was a breeze. There are so many stylish chairs, tables, swing chairs and sets that you’re going to be spoilt for choice. So are you ready to be beguiled? Then let’s go…

This stylish table and chairs with a fire pit in the middle

Firstly: as if this outdoor furniture set wasn’t divine enough, the table actually has a fire pit in the middle! Okay, so you can’t cook on it, but it’s still sure to impress your guests. In addition, the chairs are weatherproof and water and fade resistant.

These über-cool sun loungers

Secondly: designed by Matthew Hilton, this versatile outdoor furniture sun lounger is made of powder-coated aluminium that resists weathering and rusting over time. The chairs are stackable, come in different shades and you can buy a matching side table and look coordinated as a result.

This rustic outdoor furniture table and benches

Thirdly: this set features treated acacia, a sturdy and warm-toned wood, which contrasts perfectly with the industrial-look grey steel-toned frame. Enjoy a meal outdoors or just sip cocktails while sitting on the benches and enjoying the sunshine.

This fun cocoon hanging chair

Fourthly: we love the fact that this cool chair is made of a fabric called Sunbrella, rendering it water, UV and stain resistant. Available in a choice of colours, just choose one to suit your space, then find a place to hang the chair and swing gently. As outdoor furniture goes, this is up there with the most fun.

This dining set which is just so elegant

Then we have this extremely grown-up and sophisticated outdoor furniture dining set. Traditional but with a mid-century twist, the chairs have a metal frame and their angled legs feature a wood effect design, just like the frosted glass table top.

This natural armchair which is so rustic

Next up in our outdoor furniture edit, we have this rustic armchair, which creates that relaxed Mediterranean vibe. Crafted from sturdy curved PE rattan but complemented by off-white cushions, it’s a real beauty. So why not buy two and relax with a companion?

Then we have an elegant outdoor furniture set comprising two benches, an easy-to-clean glass top coffee table and a wonderfully spacious corner sofa with pale grey cushions. Why not invite the entire family round for drinks and nibbles?

This stylish day bed

And then there’s this modular day bed, which is crafted from weatherproof teak, a great material for outdoor furniture. The L shape can be arranged on the left or right hand side to suit your garden, while the cushions have an extra layer to make them extremely soft.

This poolside bar table

What better way to sip drinks by the pool than at this divine table, perhaps while reading a book? Even better, this outdoor furniture design features toolless assembly, so can be taken apart easily and reassembled wherever you fancy.

This super-colourful chair

Then there’s this bright egg yolk yellow chair, which is sure to brighten up your day. And if yellow isn’t your thing, this piece of outdoor furniture is also available in 31 other colours. It’s inspired by a landscape of olive trees, so it channels the Mediterranean sun.

This cute pastel dining set

If you love sustainable design then you’ll love this outdoor furniture set made of recycled, maintenance-free DuraOcean Social Plastic. The warm wood FSC Eucalyptus also complements the plastic seats. And if you don’t go outdoors in the colder months, then why not bring it indoors and liven up your interiors?

This comfortable outdoor furniture ottoman

This ottoman came into being because designer Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance took inspiration from the traditional Moroccan footstool. He knew how to use colour and quilting to make the piece a design icon – and we think it’s so luxe.

This double rattan hanging chair

Cuddle up with your loved one in this comfy outdoor furniture hanging seat for two, just because it’s summer. The chair’s grey metal frame and faux wicker seat contrast with its soft cream seat cushion, while two matching tie-on headrests will keep you cosy.

This stylish monochrome chair

So cool, so chic… meet the next piece of outdoor furniture, the Parisian bistro-style outdoor dining chair. Imbued with continental flair, its black and white stripes are rattan-effect, while we love its retro brown frame.

This curved outdoor furniture set

As you probably know, the trend for curved pieces is in, so this design is perfectly on-trend. The rattan suite has a table you can raise for dinner and drinks, and lower for coffee, while its cushions are wonderfully plump.
