Colourful seating made for lazy days in the garden..

Will we get another heatwave – or won’t we? Either way, summer is shaping up, the mercury is rising and it looks like there will be enough sunny days to warrant creating a cool and convivial outdoor living space by investing in some decent outdoor chairs and other garden furniture.

What better way to while away a warm afternoon or balmy evening, than by spending time in the garden, or on the terrace or balcony? Whether you choose to sit back, relax and enjoy your latest holiday read or invite friends and family over for a long and lazy lunch, some stylish outdoor chairs will set the tone.

Our edit includes those at the top of the range, such as the Duval-Alexander club chair from McKinnon & Harris to other more affordable options like the super-cool Palm Springs chair from Raj Tent Club.

There’s plenty in between too, with Gallic charm from Fermob, a modern take on tradition from Vincent Sheppard and  laid-back luxe from Saba Italia.

Expect high design from Petite Friture, easy modern style from Out There Interiors and all-out elegance at Dedon.
