With lockdown finally coming to an end, we can at last hug friends and family and host both indoors and outdoors. Why not celebrate with new furnishings and accessories to get your home looking beautiful and leave a long-lasting impression on your guests? For those after some much-needed inspiration or additional ideas, we have compiled together some of our favourite items for just this occasion.
Whether it’s a quick coffee in the morning or a garden party, a beautiful outdoor dining set up will no doubt encourage you to make the most of the sun in the summer months. It has never been easier to transform your outdoor space with the Muuto Linear Steel Outdoor Dining Set, with the table and matching benches coming as a set. Serving as the perfect place to socialise with your guests and share a conversation with everybody.
Create a magical atmosphere with outdoor lighting and continue the party after sunset. Some of our favourites includes the Flos Last Order Table Lamp which features a generous 24 hours of wire-free illumination, so there is no need to worry about outdoor electrics with its super easy and functional portable design. Don’t just limit this stunning lamp to your outdoor space, it is also perfect for indoor spaces such as on a desk or side table. We also love the Flos Captain Flint Outdoor Floor Light which has a sleek, modern design, creating a luxury setting for your outdoor space. It also features a dimmer switch allowing you to choose the amount of light that you want.
Sit Back and Relax
Why not make your outdoor space even more enticing with the addition of lounge chairs too! Once guests have finished eating, they may want somewhere that is just that little bit more comfortable. Some additional seating can’t harm either! The Ferm Living Desert Lounge Chair features an exceptionally comfy chair for relaxing or daydreaming, whilst displaying an attractive finish to enhance your space. Not just made to enjoy outside, but when the summer months come to an end, these chairs can seat you and your guests inside too. We also love the Menu WM String Chair which takes the conventional shape of a standard lounge chair and uses unique materials and unconventional ideas to produce a whole new take on the typical chair.
Add The Finishing Details
Finish and perfect your intended aesthetic with some beautiful accessories. Planters provide the perfect place to hold all your gorgeous plants and inject some extra colour and life into your space. The Ferm Living Bau Balcony Box is the perfect for those with smaller spaces such as a balcony or terrace, allowing you to uplift the area with vibrant plants.
If you have a larger space, the Ferm Living Hourglass Pot can hold small trees or larger plants.
Another great accessory that can’t go forgotten about is a designer throw! Perfect for pulling over your arms in the summer evenings or using as a decorative piece all year round. The beut Waves Throw is just one example of our many impressive throws.
Entertain Inside Too
Don’t just rely on Britain’s summer to be sunny at all times. We can now host whatever the weather now we are allowed to socialise indoors again. A dining table is the best place to reconnect with friends and family. Whether it’s a big Sunday roast or a Friday night takeaway, the dining table is the centre piece to all conversations. One example of our stunning dining tables that we have to offer here at beut is the Gubi Dining Table – Elliptical which allows you to dine in style with its iconic design and classic expression.
Due to the versatility of the sleek Gubi Dining Table, most dining chairs would pair perfectly. We love the Gubi Beetle Dining Chairs that have been paired together already, they hold a unique, modern and sophisticated appearance whilst not compromising on the utmost comfort. Another stunning chair is the Vitra Panton Chair which holds a distinctive and playful display and can be situated in almost any dining space.
A great solution to seating a large number of guests is the addition of a bench to your dining table. Not only do these look great, but they also allow you to squeeze in an extra person too. The Muuto Linear Wood Bench has a timeless aesthetic that will seamlessly complement almost any interior space due to its simplistic design. If you are after something with a little bit more comfort, the Gabriel Scott Prong Bench has the addition of a long-lasting upholstered cushion for extra support.
Set The Mood
Choosing the perfect light is a very important part of completing your space. Different lights can create different moods. Whether that be a romantic, cosy or loud atmosphere. Some of our most-loved pieces are the Tom Dixon Globe Burst Chandelier holds a true eye-catching conversation starter. Its stunning unique display reflects light in all different directions, creating a romantic atmosphere.
Create a cosy atmosphere with the New Works Kizu Table Lamp which, when lit emits a gorgeous ambient light whilst showing of the natural beauty of marble.
