Famous for its British styling – incorporating color, textures and layering in a sophisticated way - there's a host of elegant accessories, from floor cushions and striped ceramic stools to organic-shaped tableware and hanging lanterns.
Set a stylish and welcoming garden scene by pairing the different pieces together for an eclectic British garden party vibe.
Sun-worshipers and book-lovers will not be disappointed with an array of sophisticated sun loungers and daybeds, making perfect reading nooks and sleep stations crafted with durable, synthetic rattan.
Make dining alfresco an incredibly tasteful affair with a statement rustic-luxe tree trunk table and matching bench, oozing a back-to-nature, timeworn patina.
Slink off and find yourself a beautiful corner to enjoy a coffee and soak up the garden views on a natural, rustic wooden and rattan bench with stylish fringed cushions for added comfort.
And don't forget the finer details; we adore these safari-print cushions and elegant large white vases, perfect for creating a Mediterranean-style oasis in your own back garden.
