Søstrene and Grene’s new collection is getting us giddy for warmer weather

With spring (supposedly) well underway, we’re starting to dream of some garden gallivanting – barbecues and chilled wine, lounging in the grass reading a book, pottering about the plants, and just feeling the sunshine on our vitamin D-deprived skin.

And while we may have another few weeks to wait for the weather, Søstrene and Grene’s new collection is inspiring us to get creative now, with plenty of padded cushions, outdoor throws, picnic necessities, potted plant perfection and soft lighting. So even if you only have a tiny piece of exterior space or simply plan to monopolise a public park at the next hint of warm weather, there’s something for you.

Al Fresco Breakfast

Rather than scoffing coffee and toast on the run, we’re fantasising about taking in some morning sunshine in the garden with these outdoor dining options. Along with bamboo bowls, light trays and wooden cutlery, there’s a clever mug with a tea strainer and ceramic lid to keep your hot drink just that, and there’s a fine woven outdoor rug, perfect for a garden picnic.

Green Fingers

Whether you’re planning a veggie patch, a cut flower bed or simply want to bring that wilted basil back to life, create a green space with hanging pots, planters and window boxes. Or, start your own herb box with their starter kit of clippers, outdoor thermometer, wooden plant labels, jute twine and glass sprayer.

Light Up

If you have any idea how hard it is to find nice outdoor lighting, you’ll have already gone to grab your coat. And Søstrene and Grene have plenty of options, from candle lanterns that create a dancing patina effect, to outdoor string lights, perfect for summer party glow. And if you want something a little more functional, there’s also the LED lamp that can be placed anywhere and create a pool of light around it.

Søstrene and Grene’s Outdoor Living collection is available in stores from this week and you can see the full catalogue here.
