Want to update your garden, but short on space and cash? Forget huge clunky brown wooden garden furniture and invest in a compact bright bistro set instead.
Smaller and less expensive than ‘proper’ tables and chairs, it’ll fold away tidily when not in use and add a stylish flash of colour. What’s more, you can pick up some very nice ones indeed for under £90. Not bad eh?
My picks: the hot pink Blooma set from B&Q (www.diy.com), £89 (table, £59 + chairs £15 each), above; or the Courtado set in tomato red or mint green, £79 from Marks and Spencer (www.marksandspencer.com); the pale blue set from Homebase, £69.99 (www.homebase.co.uk); or the great quality wooden set in either retro orange or olive green, £80 from Wilkinson (www.wilko.com), all below.
