Cane Chairs

In the garden of Anita Lal, founder of Good Earth, cane chairs and an Anglo-Indian table create an outdoor seating area.

Pergola Perfection
This wisteria-clad pergola in the garden of a London flat designed by Charlotte Crosland provides shade for outdoor dining. Hanging wisteria and striped cushions make this an idyllic outside space.

Be flexible
Choose furniture that can be used for both indoor and outdoor use. This set features a high-presure laminated surface that makes it resistant to spills and scratches.

Raise the roof
This roof terrace makes the most of its incredible architectural view while maintaining complete privacy for the creation of two 'rooms'; one for dining, the other relaxing. Seasonal flowers soften the planting, while pots are positioned to create focal points and draw the eye. A circular table with a central hornbeam trained to the shape of a parasol offers a creative shade from the sun.  

Family ties
Richard Joseph of innovative kitchenware brand Joseph Joseph completely reconfigued the back of his Wandsworth house with the help of architect Daniel Adeshile, adding a kitchen and double-height dining space with six-metre-high glass doors, that slide back to create a fluid link with the rear garden.

'The only company that could make them that high with the thin frames was in Portugal,' says Richard. 'There was this big hole at the back of the house for three months waiting for the windows to arrive, and then we had to close the road and crane them in. It was a bit of a nightmare.' The enormous sliding creates an abundance of natural light and gives ample room for entertaining.
