Imagine the scene – London is pulling one out of the hat and after a belter of a day the Indian summer settles into a fragrant dusk with twinkling lights and a warm breeze that wafts mouth-watering smells of BBQs being lit across the roof terrace. Most of us don’t have the luxury of a large garden attached to our city apartments, but when days like this arrive we should, nay we have a duty, to make the most of them.
Being short of space is an opportunity to get creative with your garden furniture, after all when the food is finished but the fun hasn’t stopped why should your single friend who has her sights on your husband’s devilishly handsome and unattached former rowing buddy be stopped mid flow? With a properly planned space, there’s no need to change settings from dinner to digestifs.
Firstly, your garden furniture needs to be considered for its shape, size and weather durability. Rattan is an excellent option for a modern, chic look that has year round action. A glass top protects your table further, and smartens up the look removing the need for a table cloth. Set your table with placemats and aquamarine plates, clear tumblers and vases full of sweetpeas.
