Bold green curvy garden armchairs by Habitat.

Fancy going bold? These bright green rounded armchairs look great and will brighten up a space in your garden. I’ve always loved Habitat’s designers and they’ve certainly made this a unique-looking bistro set. The chairs are covered in an ultra-durable textilene finish on top of a metal frame. Don’t worry if green isn’t your colour, it also comes in mustard.

Rattan corner sofa with black legs and modern coffee table by M&S.

If you like the look of rattan but without the maintenance of keeping it looking good, this corner sofa set from M&S is ideal. This curved outdoor sofa features faux rattan (which you wouldn’t be able to tell it’s not really). I like its curved sides sitting on the sleek black metal legs. It also comes with a modern round coffee table to store all your drinks, snacks and anything else. This sofa is part of a collection of matching armchairs, sofas, dining tables and chairs.

Modern corner sofa with grey cushions, grey metal and wood coffee table by Dunelm.

If a modern minimalist look is your thing, this corner garden sofa set is exactly what you need. The powder-coated steel frame in an off-white colour looks sleek alongside the soft grey cushions. The unique design features a table at the end of the sofa, ideal for plants or snacks (definitely think the latter is better). Also comes with a coffee table to complete your outdoor sofa space.

Hanging two-seater outdoor egg chair with grey rattan and cushions by Dobbies.
Double folding outdoor egg chair, £499, Dobbies

No outdoor furniture round-up is complete without a hanging egg chair. This one is a must with its double design, pretty much a hanging sofa. It’s been designed with hand-woven synthetic rattan that looks extremely realistic. When you’re not using the chair, you can easily fold it away which makes it great for small spaces.

Rattan armchair bistro set with black legs and a glass rattan coffee table, by Dunelm.
Rattan rope bistro set, £149, Dunelm

Rattan style is still going strong and if it’s a style you like, you’ll love this outdoor bistro set from Dunelm. The light brown rattan colour above the black metal frame looks striking alongside the soft white cushions. This set also comes with a coffee table, making it the ideal location for your morning coffee in the sunshine.

Modern black garden lounge chairs made from metal and rope with foot rests by Ruma.
Lombok Black Outdoor 4 Piece Hocker Set, £350, Ruma

These low-down chilled black armchairs are not only stylish, they’re on trend and look way more expensive – I had to check the price twice. Think warm summer days, feet up and a chilled drink in hand. The chairs are made of metal and rope, helping to keep you cool as you focus on chilling.

Industrial style round hanging egg chair with wicker, by Cox & Cox.

Is there space for another hanging chair? Absolutely! This round, open weave design chair is in warm grey with super soft cushions. The strong powder-coated aluminium frame is bound in PE wicker – which, honestly looks so realistic.

Hanging hammock in a grey fabric by SleepyHammock.
Cacoon Songo – Moon, £375, SleepyHammock

Well, this is something very different and I’m not sure if I’ve seen it before. Think hanging egg chair but better! This hanging cocoon is made from Olefin, a super resilient synthetic fibre which is known for its strength and comfort. This is more than a hanging chair, more like a hanging daybed. I want one of these – now just somewhere suitable for it to go!
