The days are growing longer and we're starting to think about long spring afternoons in the sunshine. Our expansive outdoor collection features a wide array of stylish, weatherproof furniture and lighting for any spot of sun, from a small apartment balcony to a sun-kissed patio and beyond, so you can enjoy fresh air in comfort all year round.

We asked the design-savvy Cult team to share their favourite all-weather finds and the best ways to style them. Read on for our top picks!

1. Softline 'Outdoor Easy Lounger' by Philip Bro.

"I love the playful, out-of-the box thinking behind the EASY. It’s a lounge, a pouf, a table, a seat … is there anything it can’t do?!" 

- Aaron Cupples, Showroom Sales Consultant (Sydney)

2. Zanotta 'Elipse 2052 Chair' by Patrick Jouin. 

"A quirky and interesting design which can translate seamlessly inside and outside." 

- Denise Diago, Customer Service Administrator (Sydney)

3. Mater 'Ocean Chair' by Nanna Ditzel.

"The collection is beautifully designed by Nanna Ditzel, one of the most renowned Danish designers. The collection has a great ethos, made from recycled fishing nets and honours the UN Sustainable Development goals of protecting 'Life Below Water'" 

- Ashley Gee, Sales Consultant (Melbourne)

"This is one of my favourite outdoor pieces because it is made from recycled fishing nets and recycled hard plastic. One Ocean Chair uses 960g of ocean plastic waste, and it looks great!'" 

- Jemma Cromie, Sales Consultant (Sydney)

4. HAY 'Terrazzo Table' by Daniel Enoksson.

"They present as great value, in a nice neutral yet modern palette and have both a round & square top option.The base is clearly a feature but also a great anchor for the tables, making them suitable to stand tough against high velocity wind. They also pair up nicely with all the HAY outdoor chairs." 

-  Christopher Pooré,  Business Development Manager (Western Australia)

5. GUBI 'Obello Portable Lamp' by Bill Curry.

"Portable lights are so handy for creating atmosphere when long lunches carry into the evening. Obello's mushroom-like space-age design is timeless and works well with all kinds of styles. I like that it's made from frosted glass, with a complete charge in four and a half hours, providing up to 40 hours of light."

-  Rosie Schloeffel-Light, Marketing & Communications 

6. Nau 'Terrace Dining Chair' by Adam Cornish.

"My favourite outdoor piece is the Terrace Dining Chair. The unique idea to curve the wire seat and back into the body makes it both visually striking and the most comfortable wire chair I’ve ever sat on."

-  Jason O’Neill, Nau Product Development Lead (Sydney)

7. Carl Hansen & Son 'BK13 Swing Sofa' by Bodil Kjær.

"I love the BK13 Swing Sofa by Carl Hansen & Son. I love the simplicity of the design and the natural wood it is made from. It also reminds me of my childhood, we had a beautiful hand carved swing out on our veranda surrounded by grape vines and overlooking gardens and a lily pond. I would spend hours sitting, reading, dreaming on it with my dog by my side. Sometimes joined by family members or friends.  I loved to gently swing and catch the breeze on hot summer days. It was also my favourite place on balmy nights. I felt relaxed and could escape into my imagination."

-  Bim Blake, Commercial Sales Consultant (Sydney)

8. Zanotta 'April Folding Chair' by Gae Aulenti.

"She's director yacht chic - not many people know this is built for outdoor use and I just love her." 

-  Samuel Michael, Commercial Project Consultant (Sydney)

9. &Tradition 'VP9 Portable Table Lamp' by Verner Panton. 

"Beside being an art piece in it self, it can be like a little dog that follow you everywhere in your house. It’s also gives a nice romantic atmosphere for the long summer nights. Remember to bring it inside when you go to bed and put it on charge so it’s ready to follow you to the moon and back the next day! My favourite colour is Grey Beige" 

-  Kimmy Linnermann, Customer Service Administrator (Melbourne)

10. HAY 'Palissade Lounge Chair Low' by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec. 

"I love pairing the Palissade Lounge Chair Low with the Palissade Ottoman - it's perfect for small spaces and the ottoman doubles as a side table for drinks and snacks, or extra seating when I have friends over."  

- Isabel Moultrie, Customer Operations Administrator (E-Commerce)

11. Cappellini 'Thinking Man's Chair' by Jasper Morrison.


- Clinton Garofano, Showroom Manager (Sydney)

12. &Tradition 'Lucca Table Lamp' by Space Copenhagen. 

"The hook is brilliant and means you can hang the lamp under the table parasol to brighten the table up at night so you actually can see what you’re eating. Bring it inside overnight too for charging, as it’s a social butterfly and doesn’t like to sleep alone outside at night. Pro tip: In winter it can function as a reading light for a long hot bath, if you don’t want the celling light on."

- Kimmy Linnermann, Customer Service Administrator (Melbourne)

13. Nau 'Banksia Oil Burner' by Zachary Hanna. 

"I love it for its warm glow and because it’s the perfect centre piece for cozy winter nights while entertaining friends and family."

- Chiara Lodovici, Nau Product Development (Sydney)
