Oprah's much-anticipated interview with former royals Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was viewed by millions. And while the headlines are filled with the conversations the couple had with Oprah, we – as you might expect – had our eyes on the stunning backdrop and, more precisely, the garden furniture.
So, if the interview has left you itching to update your garden or patio, we've tracked down some lookalike pieces with which to recreate the look.

Head of interior design at My Bespoke Room, Lucy Henderson commented that the boundary between indoors and outdoors was blurred through clever styling. The idyllic backdrop to the interview 'really demonstrates how a patio or decked area can be a true extension of your home,’ she observes.
Outdoor living rooms were a huge trend last season, however, we predict they are going to be even bigger news this year. The Oprah interview setting demonstrated how simple it is to create an elegant outdoor space that reflects the rooms inside your home. If your outdoor space is due an update, here is where you can pick up the best outdoor furniture as seen in the interview.
Rattan outdoor chairs
The interview took place in an outdoor living space with low, rattan furniture with lovely plump cushions. Much more sumptuous than your standard, high-backed garden furniture, these looked stylish and incredibly comfortable.
West Elm Outdoor chair
Also similar to the Walmart chairs is this outdoor chair from West Elm. We're big fans of the curved edges that help create a calming space and the fact they look like they wouldn't look out of place in a living room or conservatory, too.
The outdoor rug is a fundamental part of the outdoor living room look, as it creates texture and unifies the space. This diamond-patterned piece from Target is affordable and classic. 'By simply adding an outdoor rug, it instantly transforms the area by softening the space and adding texture and comfort underfoot,' interiors expert Lucy says.
Low outdoor coffee table
This round, wooden coffee table with a concrete surface is practical and stylish, and will blend seamlessly with living room with a grey color scheme. The round edges soften the overall outdoor living look, which naturally has some harsh edges. 'Adding a coffee table rather than a dining height table helps create an informal, relaxing outdoor living room,’ says interiors expert Lucy.
Rustic plant centerpiece
It's all in the finishing touches, and we're loving the simple use of a floral centerpiece. Lucy from My Bespoke Room says that the 'rustic flower arrangement adds a subtle touch of color that helps brings together the entire scene.'
