Super 8! Cool outdoor lighting we love
With warmer weather (hopefully) on the horizon, we're deep in planning for al fresco drinks and late-night parties on the patio. Light 'em up with these stylish garden picks.
Having a ball
Set the mood with these genius globe lights – they’re colour-changing, rechargeable AND come with a variety of settings (including a flickering candle mode – romantic). Instant party decor sorted.
Hello, Ibiza cocktail lounge vibes! We love a multi-functional piece, and these light-up planters are perfect for giving your patio a little extra zhush. There’s a dimmer, colour rotation and even a strobe function for full-on rave vibes.
The Circle of Light
Give your garden the glow up it deserves. These 30cm spheres of light will give you more al fresco twinkle than a two double G&Ts on a sun lounger. Available from Reading-based Field & Hawken, you can either stick them in the ground, a pot or use as a hanging light. They’re also solar powered so deliciously eco friendly.
Not got a green thumb? Fake your florals with these amazing fennel lights from Sparkle Lighting in Bucks – they can run off batteries or solar power (if the British weather is playing ball, obv), and they automatically turn on at dusk for six hours of pretty glow.
These cool Edison bulbs from The Worm That Turned in Nottingham are just the thing to give your garden a little industrial edge – just pop ’em under a parasol or pergoda and you’ve got the perfect lighting for your evening Aperol Spritz.
It might look like something you’d spot at the Tate Modern, but this statuesque piece is actually a clever water drop light. Standing at 82cm tall, it’s ideal for making a statement in your garden – why not get two for either side of your doors? You’ll feel like you’re making a grand entrance every time you step outs.
On the go
How cute is this Ara To Go lamp from Nordlux? It’s fully portable, so you can move it around your table, garden or decking as you see fit (great for doing a little reading – or, er, drinking – by dusk).
Bare bulbs not your thing? This string of festoon lights from Cox & Cox comes with super sleek, smoke grey fluted shades, which means they look equally great inside as out. We love a bit of versatility at Muddy.
