1. Mediterranean

Cuckooland Hampstead Sofa Set

Where better to enjoy endless summer evenings than in the balmy climate of the Mediterranean?

No trip to the south of France on the horizon? Get the next best thing by bringing the Mediterranean look into your garden with earthy tones and natural-coloured outdoor furniture, such as our Hampstead Sofa Set.

Position the sofa set under a large tree or pergola to create a shaded seating area that would be perfect to enjoy in warmer weather.

To complete the Mediterranean look incorporate terracotta walls, patterned tiles, water features, and olive or citrus trees in warm-coloured planters. You could even add an outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven to create authentic Italian pizzas whenever you fancy!

2. Scandinavian

Cooper Outdoor Fireplace with Log Store

If you prefer a more modern or minimalist look, the Scandinavian garden trend might be more for you.

This pared-back trend works particularly well if you have a white fence or walls bordering your garden and wooden decking. Place slimline black furniture against white walls to make it pop, and use wood and other natural materials to complete the Scandinavian aesthetic.

This Cooper Outdoor Fireplace is perfect for adding Nordic style to your garden – fire it up once the sun sets to create soft lighting and cosy ‘Lagom’ vibes.

3. Country Cottage

Pacific Lifestyle Richmond Wooden Bench with Pop Up Table

Thanks partly to the rise of the ‘cottage core’ interior trend, cottage gardens are experiencing a resurgence in popularity.

Bring quaint country cottage vibes into your garden with traditional wooden furniture, gingham cushions, and garden gnomes. Complete the look with a selection of wildflowers, such as daisies, honeysuckle, foxglove and marigolds.

Our Richmond Wooden Bench by Pacific Lifestyle has a pop-up table in the middle that’s perfect for holding your cup of tea and book, whilst you survey your blissful English country garden. Tea-riffic!

4. Indoor-Worthy Furniture

Maze Rattan New York 4 Seat Round Aluminium Dining Set - Black

The difference between indoor and outdoor furniture is increasingly difficult to discern in 2023.

Slick dark grey or black furniture provides a welcome, contemporary alternative to traditional wooden garden furniture.

Made from lightweight aluminium, the Maze Rattan New York Round Dining Set in Black is easy to move around your garden and will make a style statement wherever you place it. The circular table also increases the sense of social inclusion that many of us have been missing in recent years!

5. Outdoor Sanctuary

Pacific Lifestyle Bermuda Day Bed
Cuckooland Hampstead Rattan Standing Egg Chair

This year will see a rise in the use of day beds, egg chairs and cocooning garden furniture, all of which create a cosy outdoor sanctuary for you to escape the pressures and stresses of the modern world.

The Pacific Lifestyle Bermuda Day Bed comes with weather-resistant cushions and an adjustable overhead canopy shelter that you can put up or down if you want to shut out the sun, rain – or your neighbours!

Another way to create a cosy outside nook is with an egg chair, which can be freestanding or hanging. Our Hampstead Rattan Egg Chair is the perfect size for smaller gardens and doesn’t require suspension. Add cosy throws, cushions and lanterns to complete your outdoor oasis.

6. Boho Rattan

Hampstead Dining Set

When it comes to garden furniture, rattan reigns supreme!

In 2023, rattan garden furniture will continue to dominate, thanks to its durability, affordability, and how well it fits with the current interiors trend for bohemian style. Accessorise rattan furniture with plants and outdoor rugs to complete your laidback outdoor room.

Our Hampstead Rattan Dining Set is made from hardwearing poly-rattan weave on a sturdy steel frame. Each of the six chairs comes with supportive arms and a showerproof cream cushion to provide ultimate comfort, as well as style.

7. Vertical Gardens

PlantBox Living Wall Stacking Planters
Rowlinson Garden Planter & Screen Corner Set

This year, gardens will grow up instead of out!

The last few years have reinforced the importance of getting out into nature, even if you’re limited on space. Enter, the vertical garden!

By nurturing your own veggies and herbs in a wall planter such as the PlantBox, you’re also tapping into another ‘growing’ garden trend: sustainability. Growing your own food is an excellent use of your outside space and can make you more self-sufficient and less reliant on supermarket produce with high air miles.

You can also use a vertical garden as an effective outdoor screening. This might be particularly useful for a landscaped garden with different sections: for example, an outdoor dining area, a vegetable garden, and a kids’ play area. Screening can help you define each area without cutting them off from the rest of the garden.

8. Holiday Vibes

Alexander Rose Sorrento Corner Sofa Set

As the cost of holidays abroad continues to rise, so is the popularity of the staycation.

You can achieve the holiday look at home in 2023 with sun loungers and a parasol for during the day and a corner sofa and fire pit for when the sun starts to set.

With the Alexander Rose Sorrento Corner Sofa, you’ll have plenty of space to relax with family and friends and sip cocktails well into the night!
