Summer's here, and so are lazy weekends in the garden.
Forget your standard bistro sets and fest your sunglasses-clad eyes on these fabulous designs, best enjoyed with a cooling cocktail, bbq and good book...
We were completely blown away by this bad boy - the Hi Rise Dining And Lounge Tower, £11,869, from
Notonthehighstreet.com (opens in new tab). It might be more than you - or us - usually spend on garden furniture (or any furniture for that matter), but we can dream. Just look at it!
A new take on a standard hammock design, the Tiipii Bed, £179, from Tiipiibed.co.uk (opens in new tab)
is perfect for cuddly family moments in the sunshine.
Colourful, comfy and on-budget. What's not to love about these Kali Rope Garden Chairs, £250 each, from Oliver Bonas? (opens in new tab)
Talk about fancy pants! This Giant Champagne Cork Stool and Table, £170 each, from The Chelsea Gardener (opens in new tab) are such fun. Don't forget the obligatory glass of fizz when you're using the set.
The Antigua Peach Rattan Weave Garden Daybed, £2,139, from Housing Units (opens in new tab) is the darling of the garden bed world, and wouldn't look out of place pool-side in the Maldives.
For those lazy days based around two very important things (Pimm's and excellent books), you can't get much better than this Tropical Giro Chair, £129, from Dunelm (opens in new tab).
For style lovers, there's only way to hang out this summer - inside this rather fabulous Skyline Fabio Hanging Chair, £2,353, from
Houseology (opens in new tab).
If these are up your street, you will love our fun ways to keep the dreamy festival feeling alive in your own garden.
Happy summer, all!
