I can feel the excitement in the air. The restrictions are lifting. The clocks have changed. The vaccine is rolling out beautifully. Our lawns are looking lush and green. We can meet friends outside. That means one thing… time to get the garden furniture you’ve been promising yourself for years!
This week we will just focus on one of our favourite sources for MCM style classics at affordable prices; the wonderful Made.com. They have introduced some fabulous new ranges of garden furniture for Spring/Summer 2021.
First up, get a load of sexy Alif, priced at a very reasonable £1299. A show stopper if ever I saw one. It looks great from every angle. Moulded from beautiful eucalyptus wood with a string design on the reverse that is redolent of Mexican mid century designs. The built in tables to pop your cocktails on are a great bit of design. I adore the deep terracotta cushions but it is available in grey if you must play it safe.
For the same price you could choose the Avarna Corner Modular Set. This has a more modernist appeal with it’s clean lines and chunky low legs. I have no idea how they manage this at these prices! It would look perfectly at home in a 5 star hotel.
Designer Andy Boyce created the gorgeous Kolbe. This one uses a variety of beautiful materials; acacia wood on the base and a woven back. The quality is astounding and it looks timeless. Once again, great value, priced at £1299
If you just can’t get enough rattan then Meera might be the sofa you’ve been looking for. Priced at £1499 she’s a beauty and extremely comfortable.
The Tamika Lounge Set is perfect if you want to leave it outside and not worry about the rain! It is inspired by Mexican designs that were huge in the ’60s. But while the real Acapulco chairs are a bit pricey you can buy this whole set for just £499.
Enought of the lounging. We need somewhere to dine in style! Don’t worry they have that covered too. The Royalcraft Garden Dining Set is stylish and comfortable and ticks all the right boxes when it comes to MCM style. You could use this indoors too.
