The long awaited first day of spring is here and not a day too soon in our eyes…although admittedly we are those people that are always eagerly awaiting the next season – even willing winter along come October/November. We appreciate that some people would happily bask in the summer sun for 365 days a year, but here at InsideOut Living we just love the seasons, each and every one of them.
That said, Spring in particular is an exciting time for us as we launch our new Spring Summer 19 outside range. A range we lovingly handpicked last summer, including beautifully designed and well-made garden furniture to suit all tastes.
With over 60 new pieces of outside furniture, this is our biggest outside range yet and one that we can’t wait to share with you. So, to help give you a head-start, we have listed below the top 10 sets that we, at InsideOut Living headquarters, have been swooning over pre-season.
Where to start? Well, what’s not to like about his beautifully designed, hanging seat? Big enough to fit two people comfortably or for one person to stretch out in, this Bramblecrest Cocoon comes with its own stand, meaning you don’t need a perfectly positioned tree to be able to enjoy this in your garden. Finished in a stylish light grey, maintenance-free wicker, complemented with charcoal grey season-proof cushions, this cocoon can be left outside all year long – although we recommend taking the cushions in come autumn/winter to maximise their life. The 2018 double hanging cocoon on www.ioliving.co.uk was by far our best selling item from last year’s outside range and we have a feeling this one will be too. So if this tickles your fancy we recommend getting your order in ASAP to avoid disappointment.
2. The Hartman Heritage Hanging Seat
Another beautifully designed hanging seat for the garden - also sometimes lovingly referred to as an ‘egg chair’ – this stylish single cocoon is the perfect spot for wasting away hours in the garden with your favourite book. As with all of our Hartman UK wicker furniture, the wicker is maintenance-free and the open panels in this design allow good air flow into the cocoon, so you won’t struggle with getting too hot in your new favourite outside perch. You also benefit from a better view out of this cocoon than previous versions that didn’t have the open panelling and this hanging seat doesn’t take up as much space as the double cocoon – so it is suitable for smaller gardens or patios too.
Corner Sofa Sets3. The Kettler Chalbury Corner Casual Garden Dining Set
We are so excited to be selling Kettler garden furniture this year on InsideOut Living – a UK garden furniture brand renowned for its high quality design and exceptional craftmanship. This corner sofa set is one of our favourite outside sofa sets because of it’s chic design and neutral colours. Seating 8+ people on its extremely comfortable sofa or matching bench, this is a perfect garden furniture set for entertaining family and friends
4. The Bramblecrest Monterey Outdoor Sofa Set with Adjustable Garden Dining Table
This Monterey Corner Sofa Set benefits from an adjustable height table, meaning you can easily raise or lower the table top to flex between a coffee style table or a dining table. The top is made from hardwearing and easy to clean ceramic, so you don’t have the issue that glass top tables can present – the need to constantly polish away any smears of fingerprint marks. Bramblecrest garden furniture is synonymous with comfort and style and yet again this garden sofa set achieves both.
5. The Hartman Heritage Rectangular Corner Sofa Set
The Heritage garden furniture range is a new range launched by Hartman UK this year. It is the perfect set for those summer gatherings and BBQs, also benefiting from an adjustable height outside dining table, offering you additional flexibility. This set was made with comfort in mind, offering exceptionally stylish yet comfortable seating, either on the corner sofa or stools.
Outside Dining Sets
6. The Hartman Capri 4 Seater Round Garden Dining Set – Antique Grey/Platinum
This year we are stocking a new colour pairing from Hartman’s Cast Aluminmum range – the ever so stylish Antique Grey/Platinum, that helps bring a contemporary feel to your garden, whilst still benefiting from all the advantages of cast aluminium garden furniture. This set comes complete with a spacious round dining table, 4 matching chairs with weatherready cushions, a solar parasol and base.
7. The Hartman Capri 6 Seat Oval Garden Dining Table Set
The Hartman Capri 6 seat outdoor dining has more of a classic feel thanks to the more traditional use of bronze cast aluminium. The set comes complete with an ornate oval dinngi table, 6 chairs with season-proof cushions as well as a parasol and base.
8. The Hartman Heritage 6 Seat Garden Dining Set with Lazy Susan
This is one of our favourite outside dining sets on www.ioliving.co.uk. Made from stylish hand-woven resin weave, which is maintenance free, this set is sturdy and built to last. The 6 dining chairs offer the ultimate comfort, thanks to the ergonomic design and sumptuous cushions. You could easily while away several hours sat at this dining set, spinning the Lazy Susan, whilst seeking shade under the parasol, which comes as part of the set. Win win.
Bistro and Duet Sets
9. The Hartman Curve Reclining Set
Reclining sets are becoming increasingly popular because of the incredible comfort and flexibility they offer. This stylish set, which is part of the Hartman Curve range, can be used in the upright position to enjoy a morning coffee or you can recline fully back, put your feet up on the matching footstools and soak up some sun. This set comes with a handy matching table to rest your drinks, sun cream or newspapers and magazines on.
10. The Hartman Berkeley Garden Bistro Set
We think every gardens should have a bistro set. They are so useful and take up very little space, compared to some of the other garden furniture sets available. They are compact enough to use on small patios, decking or balconies, and help to add some elegance to your outdoor space. The Berkeley range by Hartman is one of the more modern styles of cast aluminium furniture, with a simple lattice design. Made from cast aluminium this set it easy to move around, whilst chasing that sun around your garden.
We hope you enjoyed our round up of hot sets for this Spring Summer. Be sure to check out the rest of our outside range as there really is something for everyone!
