Summery outdoor garden furniture hire to warm you up!

Let’s face it, in the UK, talking about the weather could be classed as an actual pastime. We say we love the sun, then we complain when it’s too hot. We say we hate the rain, but then admit it’s ‘good for the garden’. Friends get misty-eyed and nostalgic about long hot summers of the past;  but the reality is usually more of a disappointment. So, it brings us no pleasure at all to inform you that this summer’s weather in Blighty may be even wetter than we feared. But never fear, at Rio Lounge, the sun is always shining…. (at least in our imagination!) So, let us cheer you up with some super lovely pictures of our fabulous summer furniture hire against vivid blue skies!

OK…..so what’s in store for us weather-wise this summer?

According to a Met Office report, there is a real possibility that we could be in for the wettest summer since 1912! (FYI – this is the same year the Titanic sank!) The report estimates a possible 50 wet days over the course of the next three months. In simple terms, that means every other day. Oh joy! Summer 2023 was perceived as being fairly wet and yet there were only 40 days of rain. In 1912, (the wettest summer we have on record) there were 55 rainy days. So…..without further ado, let’s look at some lovely summery pictures!

White rattan furniture hire…

We think that simply nothing looks better against bright blue skies than clean, crisp white rattan. Oozing Ibizan-style chic, these timeless pieces are our signature style  Take a look at our white ‘South Beach’ bistro tables which come in two sizes (4 or 6 stools). These are perfect for outdoor drinks, barbecues or any kind of alfresco socialising. In the foreground is our ever-popular Marrakesh sofa set.  A co-ordinating glass-topped table comes included in the set and provides both a focal point and a perfect place to place floral arrangements or pop down drinks.

Style this furniture  however you please, depending on your personal taste, but we really do love the simplicity of the white furniture with simple florals shown here.

Fancy dialling up the colour? We have all sorts of bright accessories to vamp up your black or white furniture hire! This customer hired our Ana Mandara sofas, tables and ottomans, (which is a faux leather range.) Hot pink scatter cushions and matching floral arrangements gave an eye-popping splash of colour. 

Marquee delights…white bistro furniture under a marquee

Hiring a marquee or stretch tent can be an excellent option when the weather is unpredictable.  Not only do they look great, but also provide shelter from rain and shade from hot sun: what’s not to like! Here you can see our four-seater South Beach tables with some Club Sofas in the background. The client has also hired our uber stylish Athena Patio Heaters – essential for when evening temperatures plummet.

Pool party vibes…
