Creating the perfect, tranquil space for outdoor living
Lighter nights and summer months are approaching, and all of us want to relish every beam of sunshine, so it’s time to start thinking about creating a relaxing, stylish outdoor living space and ‘al fresco’ dining.
With a removable grill, our reclaimed iron Kadai (right) is great as a barbeque or just as a fire bowl on chillier evenings. Traditionally used as a cooking bowl in India, they are available in three sizes and come with a stand and handles fitted for easy carrying.
Complement the rustic outdoor look by serving salads, starters or breads on our handcrafted wooden platters and bowls. The range includes trays and nibble bowls in sustainable mango wood, along with large teak platters from Indonesia and reclaimed dough bowls from Gansu in western China. You'll also find teak wood planters, wooden chopping boards and pizza boards in a similar style.
Consider versatile, folding iron furniture such as our range of slatted Odee chairs and tables (above) for easy set up and storage. Each item folds away for storing indoors over the winter and is powder coated to protect against the outdoors. The range includes folding coffee and side tables, a lounger and a bench - perfect for relaxing in the summer sun.
Sit back and relax
No matter what size your outside space is and whether it’s a peaceful reading retreat you’re looking for after a hard day’s work or a seating area to entertain guests or family, create a relaxing ambience by accessorising your furniture with scatter cushions and throws. You can further add to the tranquil, serene setting with fine fragranced candles, planters and perhaps a meditating stone Buddha – all helping to produce a sense of calm and well-being. Complete the ambience with soft lighting using our Chinese lanterns and hurricane lamps.
