With the promise of summer finally beginning to peek through the clouds, it’s time to secure your thinking caps firmly on your heads and begin looking into how you can transform your garden with beautiful furniture and accessories ready to host a season of fun.

As with any decorative opportunity, it can be hard to rein your creative juices in once you’ve unleashed them on designing your dream summer garden. So, before you start adding unnecessary items into your basket, it’s important to consider both the small touches likely to transform your space and the larger items of quality garden furniture that’ll best utilise your outdoor area.

That’s why, in today’s blog post, we’re offering you a helping hand by breaking down a few furniture pieces worth considering as part of your garden decor this summer. From bold colour schemes to practical furniture solutions we’re exploring it all in a bid to brighten up your garden, no matter the unpredictability of the British weather!

Swing into summer with your furniture

Summer brings with it a promise of iced sangria in the garden, friendly weekend barbeques with close friends and lazy, intimate evenings with the whole family. So, what better way to embrace the peaceful days to come than by investing in a cosy, hanging seat for your garden?

Ideally placed in the corner of your outdoor area, the Monterey Double Hanging Cocoon will become your favourite reading spot this summer, providing you with a great place to sit back and immerse yourself in a good book while enjoying the cool summer breeze as you rock and relax.

Invest in a sunny seating area

Alternatively, if the prospect of regular sunny gatherings excites you, then preparing your garden area with seating options fit to welcome a party of guests should be at the top of your priority list. We suggest buying garden furniture complete with weatherproof chairs and tables ready to host a season of summer barbeques and sunny weekend gatherings that are tough enough to withstand summer showers without dampening your day.

With so many garden furniture sets for sale, you might not know where to begin your search for luxury upholstery and outdoor dining furniture - luckily for you, we know just the place to start! Our Panama Round Table With Lazy Susan, Armchairs, Parasol and Base is the perfect set to suit a variety of outdoor spaces. Fusing traditional style with contemporary designs, this beautiful water-resistant set combined with a frost-proof glass tabletop will see you through years of garden parties and relaxing mornings right through the summer and into the crisp winter months.

Spruce up your sunshine accessories

For those of you who are simply looking to give a new lease of life to your existing outdoor furniture, the way you think about decorating your garden shouldn’t differ too much from the way you go about dressing yourself for a special occasion. With the foundations set such as the freshly mowed lawn and comfortable seating area on top of your clean and inviting decking, it’s time to accessorise.

Start by introducing small doses of colour to your garden. Whether that’s in the form of colourful flower beds, hanging flower baskets or cushions such as our Harlequin Yellow Square Scatter Cushion, adding small, bright touches to your outdoor area will highlight your entire ensemble as beautiful and stylish in time for summer.

Refreshing your garden decor in time for a season of sunbathing and socialising doesn’t have to be difficult. Whether you choose to incorporate a new outdoor dining set to your space or are looking to inject a burst of fresh life to your garden with new accessories, at Ponsford, we have it all!
