Never before has garden furniture been so important. An easy entertaining area that can extend your home and make your living area seem more spacious, outdoor styling is essential for Spring/Summer 2021.
Of course, comfort is key, and what better way to relax in style than with a chic but cosy garden lounge set. Whether you're looking to host the whole family or looking for something a little more intimate, you can spruce up your space for the spring season. All you need is some careful planning and beautiful inspiration.
Taking popular and much sought-after Out and Out garden furniture pieces and styling them to suit their personal space, the #OutandOutAtHome hashtag is packed full of real-life refreshing ideas.
To help you get set for BBQ season, here's a round-out of how those with a stylish eye are designing their garden this season.
Outdoor Lounge Sets
Does anything say summer more than an al fresco area made for both relaxing and fine dining? In a beautiful garden area designed by @house2home_no48, the cosy nook sits snugly under a chic wooden archway. The Palma Corner Rattan Lounge Set is made to seat up to nine people and is the ideal focal point for large garden gatherings and more intimate meetings.
The delicate dove grey cushions and light coloured rattan is complemented by a gorgeous pattern outdoor rug, which adds to the 'bringing the indoors outside' atmosphere. The generous sized tempered glass table can house an abundance of snacks and drinks, and the corner seat design gives the space a cosy feel. Whether you're spending time with a glass of red and a good book or entertaining all evening, this elegantly designed area will give you the space you need.
With most of us spending more time at home than ever, the family pets have had a field day! No one loves constant company more than a faithful hound or two, and just look at how comfy @hunterandivythecockers look! If keeping your pups happy has become a priority, then finding them a place to perch could come in the form of the ultra-versatile Marbella Corner Lounge Set. The fitted ottoman in the set can be moved to where you see fit, and the light grey covers keep everything cool and chic.
Keep cosy blankets at the ready for full-moon watching evenings, and the modern rattan keeps the set looking fresh and new. The perfect place for anyone to sit with a warm cup of coffee in the morning, this set will amp up the look of your patio and make a comfortable super chic look.
Proving that you don't need a whole lot of green to make your garden patio furniture feel fresh, @ourlifebythewoods have achieved a modern look for their outdoor space. Complimenting the grey stone patio, the Copenhagen Grey Rattan Set is a class act that will help you kick back in style. The handwoven, thick cushions offer maximum comfort (perfect for sunny days), and the carefully constructed wooden legs give the design an elegant lift.
Perfect for perching your evening cocktail on, the granite table has a sturdy look with rounded corners for a chic finish. Complimenting the cool tones in the garden, the marble-like plant pots house simple plants that don't require too much attention. The grey rattan outdoor furniture has been carefully constructed to be maintenance-free, and over time will lose the washed finish and be replaced with a fresh silvery grey tone.
You only have to flick through @natalieblake's Instagram feed to feel inspired to switch up the look of your garden. Natalie really inspires some garden goals by balancing effortless neutral tones with inviting lighting and a lush green lawn. Understanding that an outdoor lounge set makes a small patio area a comfortable place that everyone can appreciate, the modular design of the Santorini Lounge Set fits in perfectly.
Brining a soothing ambience to the area, the lounge set features fluffy cushions. The chic black frame offers a tougher edge, and the large garden parasol shields the sun — when it decides to shine! Natalie has added some strippy and textured cushions in a neutral shade to the lounge set to really make the area her own.
If you like the idea of patio furniture that you can arrange yourself, the Santorini set could be the option for you. You can push the ottomans together to make a snuggly chaise longues, or you can separate the set to create a more social effect. Finish the area with a graphic patterned rug, and you're pretty much good to go! Whether you're working with dappled sunlight or refined outdoor lanterns, you easily find a sense of outdoor peace with this kind of arrangement.
With a name like the Lisbon Garden Lounge Set, it's not surprising that this elegant find evokes the balmy evenings of Portugal. Complementing the cool coloured cushions and dark aluminium frame with a tonal fence, Hayley and Tom of @ourshifnalhome have created the perfect place to enjoy the sun.
The Lisbon Garden Set can seat up to five people, and though it's super comfortable, it's also super durable. Uniquely crafted for superior comfort, the generously sized 3-seater sofa combined with the spacious armchairs means that you achieve a cosy campfire effect — without the fire hazard. The low coffee table adds a sophisticated twist and gives you the perfect place to enjoy a nice cool drink on a hot summer's day. The Aztec outdoor rug really finishes the area off perfectly, making this an easy place where you'll want to spend most of your time.
Lounging in your garden is something that most of us want to be able to do. But to create a desirable outdoor space with a touch of style, consider the entire area and look for inspiration using the #outandoutathome hashtag.
