Chill-Out Seating: Beat the Heat in Comfort
Combat the heat with cool and comfortable seating options. Look for materials that allow for airflow, like rope for sofas and lounge chairs.
Our Isora Outdoor Lounge Chair features a white rope frame, which is sure to keep you cool on even the hottest days.
Cool Dining Escapes: Alfresco Feasts in the Heat
For uncovered outdoor spaces, choose light-coloured furniture and cushions. Their lower heat absorption compared to darker alternatives ensures cooler temperatures.
If your outdoor space has a protective covering, embrace the sophistication of dark furniture, as it remains sheltered from direct sunlight.
Crafted with UV-rated materials that stand up to the elements, our Alcala Dining Chair has a resilient aluminium frame and sleek black synthetic wicker for a modern aesthetic. The design is completed with a plush beige cushion, ensuring not only a chic appearance but also unmatched comfort.
Refreshing Nooks: Creating Shade with Style
Designate refreshing nooks with strategically placed outdoor umbrellas or sail shades. These additions not only provide shade but also add a stylish touch to your space.
The Cedro Day Bed is the perfect option for those seeking shade by the pool, in the garden, or on the deck this summer. This plush day bed prioritises shade and adaptability and is easily adjustable. It turns into a shaded shell-type daybed or fan-shaped chairs, perfect for cocktail parties
Luminous Nights: Setting the Evening Aglow
Embrace the balmy summer evenings with strategic lighting. Solar-powered string lights, lanterns and table lamps can add a touch of magic without increasing the temperature.
Keep your outdoor space alive day and night with our Sponge Table Lamp. An elegant light inspired by the softness and shape of mushrooms, this little lamp is perfect for indoor or outdoor use.
With the built-in battery, it can easily be moved as you wish and recharged when needed. This lamp is small but mighty with a 5-hour battery life at full brightness, weather resistance, wind resistance and 3 different light modes.
Beat the Heat Entertainment: Fun in the Sun
Plan entertainment that embraces the summer vibe. Consider water-themed activities like a pool party, water balloon fights, or even a makeshift slip 'n slide.
Invest in outdoor misting systems or portable fans to keep the air circulating during your gatherings.
