Another bank holiday weekend is ahead of us which, if the weather is being kind, and it looks like it might, we’ll all be heading outdoors to our gardens. If you’re contemplating updating that shabby garden furniture and want your outdoor spaces to look great, you might want to do so whilst supporting a very worthy charity Sue Ryder, who happens to have bought out a new range of garden furniture.
Affordable Garden Designs for Outdoor Living – Sue Ryder
You may recall that I featured Sue Ryder charity and their online affordable interiors shop here. Today, I’m excited to inform you that they have also introduced a new collection of designs for your outdoor spaces. Sue Ryder is such a worthy cause and one that I’m happy to promote here because awareness is key and every sale counts.
Ready to celebrate some outdoor living in the knowledge that you’ll also be helping other? Let’s go!…
You don’t have to have a massive outdoor space to be able to inject some vibrant colour and this metal bistro set is perfect for patios, balconies or a quiet secluded spot to take some much earned ‘you’ time. Personally, if you haven’t got the time or green fingers then utilising colourful furniture like this will brighten up your outdoor spaces no end. It’s also very reasonably priced at £54.99 and is also available in a vivid green.
Or perhaps you prefer to take in the sun lying down. This rattan grey sun lounger has four reclining positions and a sprung cushion which also happens to be showerproof for when the weather turns and you end up going from bikini to full on jumper and long trouser mode in a matter of hours. Whatever the weather it’s a wonderful piece to consider for the garden. Priced at £99.99 it’s less than what you’d pay for a weekend away and you can take full advantage of the sun as and when you’d like and relax in style.
We provide person-centered hospice and neurological care for people facing a frightening, life-changing diagnosis. It’s not just expert medical care we provide. It’s the emotional support and practical things we take care of too. We do whatever we can to be a safety net for our patients and their loved ones at the most difficult time of their lives.

You’ve got to love the compactness of this cubed rattan dining table and chairs. It’s neat and tidy design that is perfect for alfresco dining with the chairs slotting perfectly under the table to form a simple cube when not in use. The showerproof cushions are included too so you can dine in comfort ensuring you won’t be left with the inevitable imprint of the chair that you’ve sat upon (yes we’ve all been there). Being grey in colour it won’t distract or take away your attention from your gardens splendour.
We’ve been after an outdoor sofa design for our patio area as we’re wanting a more relaxed way to spend evenings with friends and family. This Corner Rattan sofa design has been added to the top of our list as a contender as it’s not too large. It’s also versatile too as the corner sofa splits into 2 pieces and you get a hand coffee table to put your G&T’s on. I say, what more could you ask for! Price £399.99
If you prefer a more formal set up this set 2 seater sofa, 2 armchairs and coffee table are certainly one to consider. With this set, you’ve got an array of possibilities of arranging your seating, much like you would indoors. It’s part of their luxury range and is priced at £329.99
If you’re looking for versatility with the furniture that you choose and want to be able to utilise it indoors and outside then this 3 piece rattan conservatory set might be for you. It would look great for either use and if space and money are tight it’s worth investing in durable designs like these to get the most out of them. It’s available in dark or light grey and is made from rattan which is a sustainable material that is better for the environment. So for a 2 for 1 (indoor/outdoors), it’s a great price at £149.99
Not only do we treat more conditions than any other UK charity in our hospices, neurological care centres and out in the community; we also campaign to improve the lives of people living with them. We see the person, not the condition, taking time to understand the small things that help that person live the fullest life they can. (Sue Ryder)
Space Saving Storage
And as with our indoor spaces, there’s always the need for storage no matter how small or large an outdoor space you have. This compact vintage plum Sentry Shed is ideal don’t you think? Whether it’s for storing pots and having your most used tools to hand, it’s useful but also pretty shed that I wouldn’t say no to in my garden. I always have an overflow of pots and compost from my houseplants indoors so this would certainly help if you’re a plant addict too and don’t want to keep these indoors.
This plum colour is also a great way to introduce a shade of this year’s Colour of The Year, Ultra Violet so if you’ve been looking to introduce purple into the garden, this may be one to consider especially if you’ve been smitten with it. Built from high-quality wood with an asphalt roof and finished with a waterproof paint, this sentry shed features shelves and a cubby hole and is priced at £149. If you’re not a fan of the plum colour it’s available in a neutral Stone colour.
One in four of us is affected by conditions such as cancer; heart failure; dementia; acquired brain injury; multiple sclerosis; Huntington’s disease and motor neurone disease. Whether it’s volunteering, running a fundraising event or making a donation, we need your support so we can be there for people at the most difficult time of their lives. (Sue Ryder)
If you’re one for muddy walks and/or getting messy in the garden, you might be glad to know that you can now hide those unsightly welly boots with this rather fab Boot storage shed. It’ll make a cute addition to your outdoor spaces whilst hiding away up to six pairs of boots. It might also encourage your little ones to take them off before venturing indoors. Price £119.99
I’ve saved my favourite until last with this contemporary string furniture trio. Super stylish and full of modern good looks, these would look fantastic just about anywhere including indoors don’t you think? The roomy cocoon-shaped chairs are inviting as well as being designed for maximum comfort. Add a colourful cushion or two and you’ll be ready for summer ready. A great set for smaller outdoor spaces but it’s also perfect for creating an intimate seating area in a larger garden which is exactly why I’m saying the words “I need” as I type Price: £99.99
And if you can’t or don’t do colour it is available in a light grey as seen above as well as the vivid pink at the beginning of this post. And just so you know these Acapulco Bistro String Sets are available to pre-order before 28th May when they will become available.
I hope you’ll agree there are some fab affordable designs that Sue Ryder has to offer your outdoor living spaces and just think with every purchase you’ll be helping raise money for a much worthy cause in the process. You can find more outdoor living inspiration here as well as finding out more about the Sue Ryder charity.
Have a wonderful bank holiday weekend wherever you are. I’m off next week on a much-needed break to Cornwall so there’ll be no posts until the following week.
Until next time, thanks for stopping by!
P.S: You can follow me around Cornwall and any design finds on my Instagram Stories next week so don’t forget to follow me here! I’m hoping to visit Any Old Lights who have just moved into their new premises so watch this space.
