Here, Senior Creative Buyer Jessica Harding uncovers a few of her favourites. But be warned, you might just want them all.
The Rolls-Royce of day beds if ever there was one. The Alcova is inspired by the intimate alcoves of Arabic royal houses and it’s easy to see why. With its teak shutter screens and its breezy curtains, this is the ultimate poolside piece. Featuring a strong aluminium frame and adjustable seating, you’ll find it hard not to spend all day secluding in its comfort.
Enjoy the sunshine and recline atop the sleek and sophisticated Unity lounger this summer. Cleverly designed to work as either two individual loungers or to be combined into one expansive day bed, this piece is as versatile as it is sophisticated. Possessing a definitive masculine edge and padded armrests, it’s obvious Highgate Home knows what they are doing when it comes to designing for the outdoors.
Perfectly suited to poolside locations, the Ibiza sun lounger’s irresistible curves and fluid form is inspired by ocean waves. Available in a cool-toned Milos White or Cala Grey, this piece will elevate your outdoor space no matter the colour scheme. Created using recycled materials and waste plastics, the sustainable sun lounger's brand Vondom is committed to protecting the environment that it so perfectly belongs in.
A fabulous addition to the gardens of the bold, the Tropez daybed makes the very best of statements. Composed out of a combination of ash wood and dynamic black and white striped leather upholstery, this piece feels modern and yet joyously retro all at once. Who knew outdoor furniture could be such fun?
Looking to add some drama to your outdoor space? The Surabaya might just be the one for you. Its eye-catching rattan frame not only makes a visual impact but provides some much-needed shelter from the summer sun. With its deep cushions creating an embracing sense of relaxation, I imagine you’ll be spending hours reclining in this ultimate hideaway.
One only has to look at Ethimo to understand that sometimes simple designs are the best. Whether you’re looking to furnish a poolside in Santorini or hoping to catch some sun in Surrey, the Grand Life lounger offers instant elevation to any outdoor space. You simply can’t go wrong with this organic combination of natural cord and teak sunbed.
Emitting a unique sense of contemporary charm, the Flexx lounger features solid teak carpentry and striking woven straps. Its earthy tones allow it to blend seamlessly into the landscape whilst offering an enviable sense of luxury. Combine with other pieces from the Flexx range for a cohesive look.
