Making the right choices: Outdoor accessories

Candle holders

Lanterns and candles are great for lighting up your space after dark or for creating an ambient mood when you’re dining al-fresco. Our bamboo lanterns are especially useful as they can easily be hung from low branches or moved between the dinner table and the bench for an after meal chat (they also give a warm glow to any dinner party!)

Soft furnishings

Whilst technically any of our soft furnishings will look fabulous outdoors, we have a dedicated range featuring fun and bright prints. Our Corocco print was designed in house and comes in a whole host of items, ranging from cushions, to rugs and printed picnicware to make sure your garden is on-trend this season.

Planters and pots

Don’t forget our floral friends when you are giving your garden a makeover. We have a whole range of pots and plants in brights and neutrals to help you curate your look. Going for industrial cool? Think neutral or metallic. Going for bold and bright? Think warm yellows and greens.

Outdoor entertaining and dining

We don’t always get to spend as much time outdoors as we would like, so it’s great to be able to make your space welcoming and fun. We’ve gone for lots of colour popping combinations this season, with our patterned and printed picnicware.

It’s easiest to plan your big outdoor furniture pieces first. We have a handy outdoor furniture buying guide for this if you'd like some guidance. Once the expensive decisions are out the way, it’s time to have fun with your accessories. The great pricing of our range means it’s easy to mix and match, try out new colourways and treat the neighbours to some eye candy too!
