The perfect garden furniture for a barbecue

The perfect garden furniture for a barbecue

The summer is fast approaching, so it’s about time we began getting our priorities in order. That’s right, we’re talking about the importance of the barbeque season. It’ll soon be time to grab your sunglasses and start alfresco dining in true Barbed style. However, before you can tuck into cheeseburgers and hotdogs in the sunshine, you’ll have to make sure your barbeque and garden furniture of choice is fit for the job.

To help you along the way, we’ve picked out a few products from our designer garden furniture collections that we believe would make this barbecue season a stylish, comfortable and highly memorable one:

Eva Solo Gas Barbecue and Lid

First things first, the barbecue!

Many barbecues are quite an eyesore, tucked away in the corner of the garden out of sight, or built with bricks, and surrounded by old burn marks and ash stains.

This is where the Eva Solo gas barbecue is so different. It’s a barbecue set that should be eagerly shown-off while cooking your favourite barbeque food in real style. It’s a highly functional design, simple to use and has been specifically developed for you grill enthusiasts. The clever design allows the gas bottle to be conveniently concealed within the grill and has been finished with a unique domed lid which makes it possible to create a fan oven effect. There is also a flat lid that can be placed on top of the grill when it’s not in use, converting it into a smart side table. The Eva Solo gas barbecue would make a stylish addition to any garden, and it really does tick all the boxes.

Costa Extending Table and Armchairs

Next up, we need something that will cater for friends and family, providing the space required to serve up all that delicious food. This is where the Costa Extending Table from Fermob comes into its own. Practical and modern in design, and capable of seating between 6-10 people with its durable aluminium frame and table top, it’s an outdoor dining table that certainly packs a punch. What’s more, it’s available in no fewer than 24 dazzling colours, so making it work with your current garden will prove no problem at all. There is an entire Fermob Costa range, so you can match it with other items from the collection. An obvious choice would be the comfortable and easily stackable Costa armchairs.

Quiberon Side Table

The Quiberon Side Table is a practical addition, and because it’s on wheels its versatility means you can use it as you see fit. Perhaps you could wheel over a selection of salads (we really mean desserts) or use it as a handy drinks trolley. It’s perfect for barbecues and summer cocktails alike and being 100% weatherproof means maintenance is kept to an absolute minimum. It may be termed a side table, but it’s still a stylish piece made with quality craftmanship that will make a unique statement in any outdoor space.

Hyde Hanging Parasol

So, now that your barbecue is ready to go, and you have the garden furniture to keep everybody comfortable, all that’s missing is the parasol to keep you well shaded. Measuring a whopping 3 metres x 3 metres, the Hyde Hanging parasol by Cane-Line will do the perfect job. You can take control of the parasol with a handle that allows you to tilt it to 6 different angles, and it can be rotated a full 360 degrees. This is great, because no matter which direction the sun rays are coming from you can ensure everyone is well protected.
