    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. 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
    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?

    Talk about fancy pants! This Giant Champagne Cork Stool and Table, £170 each, from The Chelsea Gardener 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 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.

    For style lovers, there’s only way to hang out this summer – inside this rather fabulous Skyline Fabio Hanging Chair, £2,353, from

    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!
