Compiled by Antonia Edwards

The style - Contemporary

In preparation for summer parties that go on well into the night, opt for outdoor furniture that makes a style statement. A smart dining suite can make a great focal point for a patio or balcony, as well as providing an essential outdoor eating area.

This is the new Axis range by Gloster made of solid teak, available from a range at Wych Cross Nurseries, Forest Row 01342 822705.

The style - Glow in the dark

For a magical garden ambience, illuminate plants and wildlife with the spectacular Havana outdoor lamp by Foscarini. It is made of a single rotational moulded shade in white or coloured polyethylene and comes with a free standing base, underground base or stake. A hanging version is also available, from Caz Systems, Brighton 01273 326471.

The style - Home comforts

La Hacienda are perfect for creating an outdoor room feel. They burn wood or coal, are great for campfire cooking and are available in black or bronze perfect for seeing you through the long summer nights, from a range at Brighton Garden Centre, Brighton 01273 607888
