Outdoor furniture you need this summer

There’s nothing like peering out at your backyard and marvelling at the sheer beauty of it all.

And there’s certainly nothing like sitting out there on a balmy evening as you watch the sun set and let the summer breeze lightly caress you.

It doesn’t take much to make your backyard look out-of-this-world.

In fact, with some of these outdoor furniture ideas, you’ll be well on the way.

So here are 5 outdoor furniture pieces that are sure to transform your outdoor living space into a veritable haven, a majestic, awe-inspiring, jealousy-inducing sanctuary.

Dining set

A dining set is an essential part of any backyard. It’ll be your focal point, your centrepiece, your conversation starter, which is why it’s key to consider what type you’re looking for.

You want your dining setting to look and feel solid.

After all, the dining set you choose will probably have to battle the elements over the years and take a bit of a battering.

But at the same time, you want it to look elegant and feel great too.

The aim is to strike this balance, because if you find it, you’ll never dine anywhere else.

A strong, wooden dining set like the one shown above can provide the tone for your entire backyard.

Another great option is a rattan dining set, since rattan/wicker is renowned for its long-lasting, attractive and weatherproof features, which make it a great addition to any outdoor living space.

Hanging egg chairs

Maybe not quite as crucial as the dining set, hanging egg chairs are still a great addition for your outdoor space.

These chairs can offer such comfort and style as you curl up in the warm embrace of a loved one or sip a glass of wine as you read a nail-biting book.

100% weatherproof and built to last, hanging egg chairs will be a family favourite and the ultimate luxury piece to complement your backyard outdoor living space.

Just don’t blame us if family feud’s break out over who gets to sit there!

Bar settings

A favourite for those who like to entertain, a bar set is both classy and attractive.

We really like them because they can help divide up a backyard by creating a little sanctuary away from the rest of the action.

We also like them because they’re great for kicking back and enjoying a drink.

Bar sets work so well in any part of your backyard (even the swimming pool), all you have to do is find a nook that’s relatively free and prepare to be blown away.

If you’ve always wanted to spend some quality time with your close-knit friends and family outdoors, now’s your chance.

And in a range of colours and styles, there’s a type of bar setting for everyone.

Coffee table

A coffee table can be such a versatile piece of outdoor furniture.

They’re great for enjoying a leisurely breakfast on a Sunday morning while reading a newspaper.

But they can also function as a type of storage unit, as a footrest (if the height is right) or as the name implies…to savour a cup of coffee.

Made from weather resistant materials and strong colours to match any backyard environment, these coffee tables are sure to be a long-term winner.

They’re perfect for verandahs and patios and help ensure you make the most of the fine weather.

Don’t just take our word for it, this Pinterest gallery will be sure to get the creative juices flowing.
