Patio furniture, abandoned from one summer to the next, can be a sorry business. Muddied plastic chairs sunk into sodden ground tend to be the norm, and we slide nervously into them, expecting a comedy cave-in any second. No wonder we want Richard Lampert’s Living Outdoor collection instead. This lounger, called Dish’s Island and designed by Alexander Seifried, is just as heavenly to drift off on as its name suggests, and can be used as a couch for two, could you bear to share. Approx. £1239.
