Enjoy al fresco date nights sat at this chic metal bistro set
Elegant and timeless, you can’t go wrong with a metal bistro set if you’re after a seating solution that’s perfect for two people. This one comes in a lovely light grey colour, and can be easily folded away when not in use – perfect for small gardens or balconies.
Or go for this rattan set instead if you like a glass tabletop

For an L-shape outdoor sofa and coffee table set, this is your best bet
As lovely as rattan sofa and coffee table sets are, they can cost an absolute bomb. But luckily, this one is actually pretty affordable, and comes in two different lovely tones.
Place this steel black bench in your favourite sunny spot
With its gorgeous rose patterned engraving, and sleek black steel finish, this lovely three-seater bench would make a practical and pretty addition to any patio.
