The great outdoors: our pick of the best outdoor furniture for hospitality this summer

A few of our favourites for the season and beyond.

02. 04. 24

Despite a damp start to 2024, it seems our appetite for dining and drinking al fresco remains strong, with demand for outside spaces high over recent years. Hotel, bar and restaurant operators have continued to invest in quality outdoor furniture, finding that the additional seating is used for much of the year, with many pieces suitable for double duty, also working well for inside settings.

We’ve added some standout new pieces this season, with seating, sofas & tables all suitable for dining on the terrace of the restaurant, sipping cocktails at the bar in the sunshine or even lounging by the pool at the hotel.

There are lots of new options this year, from bar stools and lounge chairs to sofas, tables and stackable seating for maximum flexibility. Choose from beautiful natural timber, sustainably produced polypropylene or lightweight powder-coated metal frames. Find upholstered sofas to sink into, weatherproof fabrics and finishes to suit every project, and chairs finished with slick woven seats and backs to bring a contemporary touch.

If time is tight we can work quickly to get everything on site and ready for the summer - read on for a few of our favourites this season.


The Lisa Filo Nest Armchair features a slimline tubular frame, generously shaped woven backrest and padded seat, with an option to include a supportive backrest cushion. There's more in the Lisa Filo range, too. Choose from armchair, side chair, lounge chair, bar stool and sofa - all in a range of colours and finishes whether you prefer a pop of colour, classic neutrals or softer chalky tones.

For something simple and slick, the Si-Si family is a great choice for any commercial site - available as a side chair or armchair, there are four different design variants to choose from, all stackable and suitable for outside use.

Whether you opt for 'barcode' slats, a dotted or plain seat back, it’s a stylish piece that sits perfectly in any restaurant, café or bar - head to our Projects page to read about our Patisserie Valerie project using this chair in a stunning lakeside setting.


The Arena collection is a great choice for a hotel, bar, restaurant or other commercial space. The sleek curved frame is made from galvanised wire, polyester powder-coated in a colour of your choosing, featuring a distinctive decorative pattern. Suitable for outdoor, indoor and contract use, it comes with a generously padded seat and an optional cushion for extra comfort.
The collection includes a sofa, armchair, lounge chair, bar stool and table.

A stylish leaf-shaped backrest inspires the name of the Mentha collection. With a clear visual connection to the natural world, each of the pieces shares sleek harmonious lines and is made using sustainable materials - certified recycled plastic, a progressively evolved material.

The upholstered version is ideal for interiors, while the essential technopolymer version is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. The seating shell is available in six different colours and can be paired with a variety of frames, making it a highly versatile choice for any commercial space.

The Brezza Armchair is another sustainable option that’s also incredibly comfortable. Featuring patented removable cushion covers woven from recycled yarn, and made without glue, the stackable frames allow easy transportation for reduced CO2 emissions. We love the bold silhouette and the colour combinations - perfect for any outdoor restaurant, café, bar or terrace.

The 1900 family brings a contemporary touch to a classic style - each of the pieces in the collection features a steel rod base with hand-forged scrolls and rings and a perforated steel sheet seat. Stackable and made suitable for outdoor use with a Very High Protection Treatment and anti-UV powder coating in a range of fabulous colours, it’s a super-practical choice for an outdoor space this summer.

1900 Bench

Choose from a side chair, armchair, bench, a range of tables or the low lounge chair with padded cushion. Go for classic deep blue or cedar green, or inject a pop of colour with capucine red, honey yellow or opaline green.
