Just in time for the warm weather, Marks & Spencer has unveiled its brand new collection of outdoor dining furniture and accessories - and it's a stunning mix of contemporary design and timeless appeal that will flatter modern courtyards and country gardens alike.
A favourite is the solid timber dining furniture; sturdily made, it's a great investment that will last year after year. Meanwhile, the stylish lounge seat, with its invitingly deep seat cushions, and the 1950s-style armchair wouldn't look out of place in a contemporary living room. Now there's an idea...
For those on a budget who want to give their garden a fresh new look for summer, there's a coordinated range of outdoor lanterns, festoon lights indoor/outdoor rugs and cushions. And, for as little as £3, you can spruce up your summer spread with pretty picnicware that embraces this season's hottest trends for deep indigo and leafy and exotic motifs. Guaranteed to brighten up your garden, whatever the weather!
