Outdoor living is seeing a real shift away from cold, impersonal palettes, with a move towards rich, natural tones – from buff tiles and clay pavers to stunning natural woods and neutral shades on masonry. Keen to embrace this aesthetic at home but don’t know where to start? Explore LifestyleGarden®’s exquisite new FSC virgin teak products, which are guaranteed to warm up any space.
Enhance a dark colour scheme
Don’t worry, you don’t need to completely ditch greys and sophisticated dark colours in your outdoor space if that is still the look you love. The beauty of incorporating the golden tones of something like teak, for example, is that it can warm up and enhance a darker décor scheme, so you can keep that chic grey sofa of your dreams but avoid being left with a stark look.
A perfect compromise is teaming a striking teak table with your sofa or chairs and then complementing it with other elements in your outside space. LifestyleGarden® has launched a brand-new selection of style-led FSC virgin teak tables that can be mixed and matched with any of our furniture sets. The show-stopping Jade model – available as a bistro, square or rectangular table – has been beautifully designed, with a distinctive top that exudes high-end style and will fit happily with any premium outdoor seating. Other options include the Garnet coffee table for a more relaxed set up or the Agate rectangular table with its fashion-forward geometric legs. These tables are included in our Bermuda Light collection but can actually be teamed beautifully with any of our furniture ranges.
Best of both worlds
If you’re seeking for a more cohesive look, then opt for a collection that boasts wooden accents throughout, with a striking juxtaposition between dark fabric and rich natural tones.
Brand new for 2023 are the Topaz and Amber collections, which bring together the contemporary style of aluminium frames, in a sophisticated matt dark grey, with the honeyed shades of Indonesian teak on armrests and tabletops. These exclusive new ranges – alongside their sister collection, Palau – maximise the lightweight properties of aluminium, whilst providing extreme durability, thanks to the unique Duracoat® for the ultimate in weather protection. In fact, all three ranges are incredibly hardwearing and, despite their luxurious appearance, require very little maintenance. Even teak can be left to weather and gain a natural patina with no TLC needed. If you prefer it to retain its original colour, you can treat it every season to keep that golden hue. For added peace of mind, ensure your FSC® teak products are water and stain repellent with a quick and easy spray of our Wood Protector.
These beautiful new collections allow your furniture to blend into your décor scheme and work well with any neutral colours you pull in, or even help indoor spaces flow more seamlessly into outdoor areas.
Greys and matt black not your thing anymore? Then it’s time to fully immerse yourself in outdoor neutrals with an abundance of natural colours and materials for a calming and welcoming environment. Brighten up your garden or terrace with the soft, subtle shades of Bermuda Light or Bahamas; two tactile Petan wicker furniture collections where a refined neutral palette meets optimum comfort. Bahamas, the epitome of lounging and relaxed entertaining, boasts glorious modular sofa units, day beds and coffee sets, which come complete with Bahamas chunky slat tables made from recycled Indonesian teak, or can be mixed and matched with one of our exclusive new FSC virgin teak tables. Give this Bahamas Duo Deluxe Outdoor Coffee Set greater versatility by teaming it with a new Zircon round side table, which features a handle for easy relocation when you’ve finished your drinks and it’s time to simply lay back and relax.
Bring the outside in
Another fantastic feature about these gorgeous warm tones is that they look just as good inside the home, as they do outside. If you like your space and furniture to be flexible and fit in with your lifestyle, then this aesthetic is ideal for you. All of LifestyleGarden®’s collections are suitable for use both inside the home and in a wide range of outdoor spaces. Our elegant designs, including the rich wood tones, clean modern lines and premium linen-look upholstered cushions, fit harmoniously with interior décor schemes, whilst the highly-durable, low-maintenance materials we use to manufacture our products mean they are also tough enough to withstand anything the UK weather can throw at them when outside.
The optimal comfort provided by our Olefin cushions, teamed with stylish configurations – their appearance softened by warm wooden accents – make for modular sofa sets that wouldn’t look out of place in any lounge or garden room. Equally, our brand-new teak dining tables demonstrate excellent craftmanship and would make an ideal centrepiece for any dinner party. You’re unlikely to drag a glass-topped rattan or plastic outdoor table into your living space to host a dinner party but a highly-deigned teak model would certainly look at home.
