The Alfresco Manifesto – outdoor ideas with avant-garde appeal

With summer in full swing – woo-hoo – it’s time to tart up backyards and balconies in time for gorgeous garden parties, lazy long lunches, beaut barbies or plonking poolside.

Our latest outdoor collection – our biggest yet – includes solid teak tables seating up to 10, outdoor dining chairs made from sturdy, supportive woven resin, super-strong rope and UV-resistant fabric cushions, substantial European timber and plush cushion sofas and brilliant bright double rockers and garden chairs – and that’s just the beginning.

We’re all for mixing and (mis)matching your serious, substantial and sturdy built-to-last outdoor pieces with fanciful and flamboyant accents that express your personality and inject a flash of fun into your outdoor room, patio, cabana or balcony.

So, whether you want your outdoor space to tie in with your indoor aesthetic, or whether you’d rather use it as a creative canvas for to express your inner stylist – we’ve collected some of our seasonal faves to help create outdoor rooms with indoor (and often avant-garde) appeal.

Caribbean colour

Inject some carnival spirit and Caribbean colour with these fun finds just made to sit side by side in a riot of brilliant colour that’ll exile the winter blues in an instant.

Dreamy desert chic

Go neutral and natural and create an on-trend desert safari vibe or outdoor oasis with these hot picks – just add cacti, mix a Tequila Sunrise, sit back…..and chill.

Cape Cod cool

With a palette of creamy whites and a timeless appeal, our Hamptons-inspired selection looks just as good in Noosa as it does in Nantucket. Accessorise with nautical beach towels, seaside accents and blue and white for a traditional take, or go loud and lairy with textiles and cushions for an offbeat interpretation of a classic look.

Putting on the outdoor glitz

If glam is your go-to style, there’s no need to give it up outdoors. Many of the latest patio pieces are at least as elegant as their counterparts indoors, incorporating dark hues, metal and glass made for sophisticated soirees at sundown.
