Garden furniture has undergone a makeover. No longer are folding chairs the only option in the outdoor entertaining section. Instead, there's now an abundance of stylish yet functional pieces to spruce up your space.
Last year, hanging egg chairs were everywhere. First popular in the 1960s, they made a comeback in 2021 as pandemic restrictions kept people indoors and limited to their gardens. This year they're sticking around.
Who can forget the success of Aldi's £199.99 budget version? There were virtual queues of more than 20,000 shoppers ahead of its launch, before it sold out in just days before finally being restocked. The supermarket later brought out a larger version to cope with demand.
With warmer days fast approaching, there's no better time to start planning your garden parties and snap up a hanging egg chair of your own.
We've handpicked our favourite designs to shop now, which can be used both outside and indoors.
