This is set to be a busy year for the outdoor furniture sector, with exciting new collections being launched. Trends are leaning towards using durable but lightweight materials that are made for superlative seating comfort.

Outdoor living is a huge part of life on the Costa del Sol, and so is stylish living! Outdoor furniture that looks beautiful and is long-lasting is well worth the investment, so choose carefully and you will reap the benefits for years to come. Wide seats with large cushions are always inviting but make sure your outdoor furniture is the right size for your patio or terrace so that it doesn’t clutter the area. Your furniture should adorn the space, making it an attractive and restful area in which to pass away those lazy, sun-filled days – while also offering practicality and good use of space.

The new Air collection is a sophisticated and eye-catching range by Belgian outdoor furniture company Manutti. Like all the ranges that Manutti produces, this stunning furniture collection offers an elegant and contemporary design for any outdoor area. Manutti is available from The White House in Urb Marbella Real (www.whitehousemarbella.com) and Siesta Homes in C.C. Plaza in Nueva Andalucía (www.siestainteriordesign.com).
