A relative newcomer to the world of homes and gardens, outdoor rugs are proving incredibly popular. Commonly made from hardwearing fabrics, they can be left out for the whole summer, are comfortable under foot and can make add an inviting loungey element to an outdoor space.
We've tracked down three of the best outdoor rug suppliers.
Why you can trust Ideal Home
This Safari Weave Classic herringbone rug adds a muted elegance to an outdoor space and is well suited to contemporary gardens. It's made from recycled PET fibre by artisan workers in India and is available from Northwood Home at £255.
Dash & Albert
Very popular in the states, American designers, Dash & Albert are strong
contenders when it comes to outdoor rugs. We love their use of colour in this fruity lollypop fresh 'Happy

high foot traffic areas. Available in three sizes from Cuckooland, starting at £129.
Offering great value at £49.95, the Santa Cruz rug has a carry handle for beach days and park picnics. Made from handwoven recycled
