We tend to neglect the garden when shopping for homewares and interiors, which can be forgiven, as the weather in Ireland is changeable to say the least. However when the sun shines, there’s no place like it, and you’ll only be delighted that you’ve invested in some outdoor furniture, to bask in those sweet summer rays. As they say, “Ireland would be a great little country, if only we could put a roof on it!”
But don’t let a little bit of rain stop you from enjoying the garden. Think of it as an extra room. Ireland is rarely too cold to spend time outdoors in the summer, it’s just a little changeable, with a chance of rain almost always imminent, but if you’re prepared for it, you’ll get far more use out of your garden than you’d imagine.
Enter stage right, showerproof gazebo! This highly durable gazebo with a polyester cover will keep the wind and rain at bay while you enjoy a vino out the back with your friends. It’s certainly a piece that will wow the neighbours too, so why not invite them over for a BBQ to show it off?!
And speaking of BBQs, this Wagon Barbecue is an absolute steal at just €54.99. It’s on wheels too, making it ideal for moving it out of the way when not in use. It’s a charcoal grill, so you’ll be able to enjoy the unmistakable smokey taste of sausages, steaks and burgers all summer long.
If you really want to splash out this summer, then why not treat yourself to this stunning 3 piece corner rattan set? Curl up with a good book in the summer sun, or catch up with friends on this super comfortable lounge set. Featuring a rust-free frame for minimum maintenance, you can relax in the knowledge that no matter the elements, your furniture is protected. Not only that, but it’s super easy to disassemble, making for easy storage in the winter time.
Get great longevity out of your outdoor space this summer by investing in a firepit. This outdoor chimney from La Hacienda is not only really practical, but stylish too, making it a great addition to your garden.
If you really want to push the boat out this summer, why not treat yourself to this hanging egg chair? It’s a real investment buy, at €449.99, but it’s something you’ll enjoy for years and years to come. We couldn’t think of anywhere better to spend an evening after a long day in work, than in this chair in the comfort of our own garden.
This beautiful patterned planter flew off the shelves when we first launched it, but the good news is, there will be more available from the 23rd of May, just in time for summer – yay! It really is a unique piece, and can even be used for indoor plans during the winter months.
