For those who are preparing to make the most of their outdoor space at long last, there are a couple of essentials to make lounging on the grass, patio, decking, balcony - or even in the park - a little more comfortable.

While some may be investing in bistro sets, hanging egg chairs, or full table and chair set-ups, others may be happier to give their garden comfy, cosy vibes with a cheery rug or cushion. 

There's a whole host of stylish rugs and cushions available to buy to suit all spaces, and they're weather resistant too - although we would recommend storing homeware buys inside when not in use for long periods, for extra protection. 

John Lewis has found sales for outdoor cushions are soaring this year, with sales up 66% year on year, so whether you want to add a little extra touch to your existing set up, give your garden a long overdue revamp, or you're starting from scratch, there are lots of options. 

Some may prefer scatter cushions, others might be looking for comfortable cushions for their chairs or loungers. Whatever you need, we've found the best.
