Manoaco Rattan Outdoor Dining Set

From ultra delectable Rattan dining areas to state-of-the-art statement barbecues, we have embraced sophisticated outdoor revelry with gusto.

‘Summertime and the living is easy’ and stylish, and luxurious.So now that the weather has thankfully taken a turn for the sunnier, it’s time to take all that entertaining and partying (and even just plain old relaxing) that we do so well outside.

The rise in open-air entertaining has been one of the key UK consumer trends of modern times. And pleasingly,this increasing desire for al fresco good times has been fuelled by decadence and elegance as much as function and form. From ultra delectable Rattan dining areas to state-of-the-art statement barbecues, we have embraced sophisticated outdoor revelry with gusto.

It’s a trend that leading high-street retailer Robert Dyas recognises. To kick off the summer party season with a stylish bang, it has put together a range of must-have swanky outdoor summer essentials.

“Taking the indoors outdoors is something the modern UK consumer has really got to grips with in recent times,” explains Robert Dyas’s outdoor guru and Senior Trader, Richard Redman. “Investing in modish contemporary furniture, well-designed barbecues and ultra-cool accessories can transform any outdoor space from humble backyard to a party pad that will be the envy of all your friends.”

Additonally, this Farwell 3m Pergola with Protective Cover (£279.99) will keep the elements at bay - whatever the weather throws at you.

Today, barbecues are big business as this Outback Meteor 6-Burner Gas BBQ with Multi Cook Plate System - Stainless Steel (£449.99) demonstrates. Not only can you griddle or grill your burgers, it even comes with a pizza stone.

The Outback Excel 310 2-Burner Gas BBQ Trolley with Side Burner (£139.99) is another affordable winner - and Robert Dyas’s best sellers. The futuristic design incorporates a thermometer in the lid meaning you can use it as a convection oven for larger cuts of meat.
