Swoon launches its first outdoor furniture collection

Known and loved for its original designs and reasonable prices, online furniture retailer Swoon has branched out with its first outdoor collection – and we're loving its clean linear look and fresh colour palette.

Suitable for gardens, patios and terraces,the 51 piece collection consists of six distinct families, which are designed to be easily coordinated with each other for a relaxed vibe.

Made from matt powder-coated steel, the weather-resistant designs range from pastel mint greens to deeper hues of azure blue, as well as staple black and grey finishes, so there's something to suit most modern exterior schemes.

Depending on the size of your outside space, there are tables, benches and chairs that will create a convivial dining area, as well as more relaxed pieces for lounging, such as the rocking chair, armchair and footstool.

Swoon’s Head of Design, Sam Baldry comments 'It has been fun designing this range, working with different colours and materialsthat we wouldn’t usually use for furniture intended for indoors. The key inspiration for these designs has come from the city – our urban landscape. We’ve drawn sharp, defined shapes by looking at the silhouettes and shadows cast by buildings. We feel the outcome beautifully catches the atmosphere of contemporary city life.'

Guaranteed to elevate any spring garden party or summer barbecue to a new level of chic, each piece is sold individually, so you can mix and match the pieces according to your own requirements.
