It's safe to say spring is in the air, as the sun has started to peep through the clouds in recent weeks and the temperature has slowly made its way out of the minuses.

With summer just around the corner, we are getting excited for evenings staying lighter for longer, picnics in the sunshine, lazy weekends spent reading in the heat, cooling off with an Aperol Spritz in hand on the balcony as the sun sets and barbecues that go on until the wee hours.

Want to update your garden for the summer months? We suggest you plan ahead to avoid missing out on items that may sell out fast, as happened last year when purchasing an Egg Chair or parasol became almost impossible in the height of summer.

Demand for outdoor furniture already seems to be high in 2021, as numerous items at high street stores like John Lewis and M&S are already sold out.

So, to help you get ahead of the crowd, we've curated the top-rated buys for any outdoor space; from sofa sets, table and chairs or benches, to rattan seats and deck chairs.

Whether you have a garden, decking, small patio, balcony or an envy-inducing rooftop, we have found an array of furniture items to suit your needs, space and budget.
