In warmer months, the garden can become as much a part of our home as the kitchen or dining room.
Neptune’s range of stylish and really comfortable outdoor furniture enables it to be both a calm oasis and the main social hub. Here are some tips from Neptune for creating the perfect outdoor living room in time for summer:
To make the most of every opportunity you will need the right size dining table; one that seats the whole family and still has room for guests. Comfortable seating is the secret to successful entertaining. Generously sized, sturdy dining chairs are a must. Add thickly padded seat cushions and everyone will be happy to sit and chat long into the evening.
For get-togethers, Neptune suggests a round concrete-topped Hudson dining table, the most sociable shape of all. The six-seater with the woven Harrington chairs is a great size with a gorgeous amount of texture.
When it comes to conservatories, sunrooms, balconies, patios, or verandas, it is important to think of it from the outside in. Neptune’s garden essentials work both inside and out. For lounge lovers, the Harrington sofa set, woven from what Neptune calls its ‘all-weather willow’, looks the part and is wonderfully comfortable. Complete with either the Tuscany or Hudson coffee tables, the sofa and armchairs are perfect for everything from the morning papers to evenings by candlelight.
When darkness finally falls, Neptune’s Blyton candles and lanterns can help keep your garden evenings warm and alive.
