Turn your terrace into the perfect spot for outdoor entertaining with a dining table and chairs. A round table is a good choice when hosting small dinner parties for the feeling of intimacy it creates, enhanced by the curved high-backed benches (which will also shield your guests from the wind), whereas larger dinner parties would be better served by a long table as it provides a more formal ‘banquet’ feel. Forget plastic and paper – dress your al fresco table with beautiful glassware, china and linen to create a real sense of occasion, adding candles and lights to generate an enchanting evening ambience.
However awkward or small the space, a modular outdoor sofa allows for creation of a bespoke seating area tailored to your requirements. This city roof terrace calls for a sofa with simple clean lines, a low back and deep cushions such as our Luccombe range, which is ideal for more contemporary outdoor spaces. Mixed with rustic wooden trunk and coffee table, this look sees the ‘loft style’ seamlessly recreated outside, updated for summer with a few colourful cushions and glassware.
For relaxing, reading or a sneaky snooze in the sun, it doesn’t get better than a sunbed. There’s room for two on our double sunbed if you’re happy to share, but if not, opt for two single ones with a table in between for housing ice cold drinks and summer’s day essentials. An abundance of plumped up, colourful cushions bring colour to the space whilst also adding extra comfort. Living in the city often means lack of space, so think laterally and use indoor pieces outside (just remember to bring them in if it rains).
