There’s been a big move outdoors since the lockdowns of the pandemics.

Our outside space has never been more important, and this is reflected in the increase of functional outdoor living rooms we’re seeing being created in gardens across the UK.

Innovative garden dining sets include rising tables that allow you to gather for coffee around a low table and then raise it up to eat. Or why not choose one with a central fire pit? Great to look at and practical for those cooler evenings, too!

Woodfire pizza ovens are also big news – you'll even find stylish tabletop versions for space-saving practicality.

When it comes to materials for your outdoor garden furniture, sustainability is key. Natural and recycled materials like wood, rattan and linen are on trend, and upcycling is becoming popular: try giving an old sideboard a new lease of life by stripping it down to become a shabby-chic outdoor drinks cabinet.


Neutral tones are a big garden furniture trend and are the perfect backdrop for colourful accessories that are easily changed to create different looks.

As with indoor design, curves are the new big thing, and this is no different in the garden.

Super trendy hanging egg chairs have become a garden staple. Pod, egg or teardrop shaped, these chairs are comfy, stylish and very Instagrammable, and are perfect as part of a larger garden set or on their own on a balcony or patio. They’re also great indoors, so you can move them back into the house when the weather turns.

The outdoor living room feel is enhanced by bringing pretty cushions, rugs, throws and fairy lights to your outside space.

We can certainly see why out has never been so in!
