Who can forget the joy of lazily swinging in one for hours? Now that we're proper adults, we can design our outdoor spaces as we please, with proper outdoor products - and egg chairs are back in vogue. It's time to relive those childhood dreams by adding stylish outdoor egg chairs to our patios and gardens. Life's too short not to.

Top garden styling tips for summer 2024

Everyone wants a comfortable and stylish garden and making the most of your outdoor space doesn’t have to break the bank.

Whether you’re ready to invest in new garden accessories or give your old set some TLC, styling is what gives your garden the best finishing touch. We spoke exclusively to Furniturebox’s experts, and they shared their top four garden styling tips...

Create a dedicated dining or relaxation area: Giving your garden some structure can make all the difference. If you have an area of patio or decking this is a great spot for putting your furniture for alfresco dining or entertaining. Add an outdoor rug, surround the area with fairy lights and add an umbrella or outdoor gazebo for shade. You’ll have yourself a cosy area for both day and night.

Create a colour scheme or theme for your garden: A cost-effective way of injecting some colour and personality into your garden is to choose a colour scheme and add accessories that fit. Cushions, dinnerware, plant pots and more can instantly elevate your garden and make it feel more cohesive.

Make a statement with beautiful flowers: Every garden can benefit from a good mix of plants. Not only do they add height and colour to your garden but different plants create different moods. For a cottage feel, choose wildflowers and for a zen-style garden choose more greenery and shrubs. Plus you’ll be helping out the local wildlife in the process – win, win!

Think about your choice of lighting: Good garden lighting allows you to enjoy your garden well into the evening as well as in the day. Fairy lights, lanterns or candles will illuminate your space in style and create a lovely ambience — you can even add fairy lights to your trees! Plus for an extra hack, invest in some citronella candles to burn in the evening to keep bugs and flies away.
