·4-min read

Curating an outdoor space that’s comfortable and stylish is more important than ever, and bringing the indoors out is a huge garden trend for summer 2022.

Creative outdoor seating is totally de rigueur, and hanging chairs are more popular than ever. And there’s a style to suit every taste.

Add a dash of on-trend bohemian style to your outdoor area with a laidback-luxe macrame hanging chair; throw in some cool, contemporary vibes with a metal-framed hanging egg chair; or create a beach vibe with relaxed, cotton hammock-style hanging chairs.

Colour-wise? The ball is your court, as organic, earthy neutrals are always timeless and chic but, if you’re feeling brave, now’s the time to experiment with colour as bold brights are totally in too.
