With clocks going forward and evenings now lighter, it's the perfect time to give exteriors a refresh. Often tables and chairs can be big, bulky and awkward in small outdoor spaces so we are loving the streamlined good looks that this online retailer has launched. And for those of us with petite balconies, compact dimensions mean you won't need to compromise on style.

'The key inspiration for these designs has come from the city – the urban landscape,' says Head of Design at Swoon, Sam Baldry. The looks are named after London neighbourhoods, including Clapham, Kennington, Clissold and Finsbury. 'We’ve drawn sharp, defined shapes by looking at the silhouettes and shadows cast by buildings. The outcome beautifully catches the atmosphere of contemporary city life.'
