Despite recent cold weather, summer is on its way. And around this time of year my thoughts turn to alfresco aperitivo…..whose don’t? When we moved to Concarneau, we only expected to be here a year and so we rented a lovely apartment, in the centre, but without a garden. Each season we expect it to be our last but we have ended up staying for 5 years already! The apartment has a very narrow balcony which overlooks the main street. I would like to put some benches on it but unfortunately my DIY expert is tied up doing renovations on our sailing boat.
So, I have been looking online. I started with Maisons du Monde as we have one in Concarneau. I was amazed at the huge variety of on trend, affordable pieces they have. In addition, many of their items are fully recyclable at the end of their lives. Here are my top picks for patio garden furniture. Quite a few of the items come from Maisons du Monde but this is not a sponsored post. I just thought you might like to see some reasonably priced options. I have created 2 different style mood boards: Modern Urban and Boho Chic. Below these are some other items that caught my eye as I was looking. Enjoy!
