Cox & Cox have some beautiful new additions to their outdoor furniture range, and we love this Elba Lounge Set with its minimalist, Scandinavian design and elegant use of natural materials. And for outdoor dining, their Verona Dining Set is both refined yet relaxed in its styling and design, creating serious Med vibes.

Rowan & Wren are real experts when it comes to al-fresco entertaining and their Emerson Garden Sofa with its bold red and white stripes is as playful as it is comfortable – we like its stylistic confidence and heritage-inspired design. And you could combine it with this characterful sun parasol from Hadeda.

To soften a terrace or patio, think about getting an outdoor rug. Weaver Green have a wonderful collection that are sure to brighten up your space. We love their Andalucia range in particular but all of them are worth are look – especially as they’re made from 100% recycled materials and are incredibly durable.

To help with the final touches for al-fresco dining, take a look at Sarah K’s beautiful green leaf tablecloth with its subtle, hand-blocked printed pattern and our friends at Molly Mahon can help elevate any mealtime with their hand woven seagrass place mats.

At a lower price point, John Lewis has a very smart bistro set as part of their ANYDAY range set that works beautifully on a small patio or balcony – and you can buy additional chairs of course. And, from IKEA, there is the ever-trusty TÄRNÖ range at a very comfortable price point – though we recommend treating the wood if using in an unsheltered area.

And – last but not least – get the professional pizza effect with an Ooni Karu 12 pizza oven. From our experience, you’ll use it a lot more frequently than you might think!
