If the weather is good, we’re going to be living it up in the garden
As the popular saying about Ireland goes, ‘It’d be a great little country if only you could roof it’.
But, while we all know the weather in our beautiful country can be temperamental, we also know that when the sun shines and the temperatures rise, there is nowhere we’d rather be.
It’s not always possible to get away for a sun holiday when we want so why not capture the feeling of being on holidays in your own home?
Whether you’ve got a garden the size of a field or a small patch of concrete out the back that will only fit the egg chair you’ve been dreaming about, here are some furniture options to create your very own summer haven.
Meadows & Byrne
This beautiful Black & Grey Mosaic Table (€398) and Bistro Style Rattan Chair (€219) from Meadows & Byrne is perfect for bringing summer vibes to a small city garden or apartment balcony.
Deep down, we all want an egg chair. This one from Jysk is currently on special offer until April 26.

Michael Murphy Home Furnishing
This brilliantly-designed daybed with a table and seating arrangement from Michael Murphy Home Furniture will protect you from getting sunburned and shield you from the wind once the sun goes down. Genius.
Unlike other types of retailers, Homesense buys seasonally and so they have new homeware brands and fabulous styles arriving several times a week. So, if you find something you love, you better get it on the spot as there’s a good chance it won’t be there when you return!
