This summer we'll be indulging in a little outdoor living, Bouroullec style...
BY DEE IVA
As summer approaches in the northern hemisphere our thoughts are turning to hazy days and long evenings spent eating and drinking alfresco. Outdoor furniture is big business these days as major designers are turning their attention to covetable pieces with style-savvy sun lovers in mind.
French design duo Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec (right) has collaborated with Danish firm HAY to produce a contemporary and affordable range of outdoor furniture that’s destined to become a classic. Consisting of 13 pieces, the 'Palissade Collection'’s curvy slatted seating, tables, benches, ottomans and stools are made from electro-galvanized, powder-coated steel in three elegant colours – light grey, anthracite and olive green – that sit well in both urban and natural settings.
ABOVE: 'Palissade' chairs, £159 each, and dining table, £559

We’re looking forward to chilliing on the low-slung sofa and ottoman with a glass of fizz or two, so please leave a message and we'll get right back to you...
