Swedish brand Skargaarden might originate from a small town on the Baltic coast yet it excels in fine outdoor furniture for more temperate climes. But don’t expect anything wooden or brown. The Reso line offers simple essentials made from powder-coated steel in a kaleidoscope of ice-cream colours. Fuss-free Scandi design at its best. And perfect for this glorious weather…
OFF YOUR ROCKER
Splash a rocking chair with zingy, citrus-fresh shades, pop it in the garden and you get the Monceau rocker by Fermob.
Monceau rocking chairs in Verbena Green and Capucine, £218 each from barbed.co.ukSure to oust any outdated notions of the creaky, wooden designs of yesteryear, it features a slender steel frame and has ‘never-knew-I-needed-one’ garden staple written all over it.
While the bar stool has earned staple status of late (more recently around cool outdoor bars or outdoor tables), its strictly metal, industrial-style incarnations can bea little dull. Not at Hayche – its WW design shakes up the look with six bold colour combinations. Go pretty with contrasting shades of pink or opt for tennis-feel green and white. At the end of summer, move the chairs inside to enjoy a pop of colour to last all through winter.
