If you’re anything like us, you’ll have cleaned off your old garden furniture only to realise it’s taken quite a battering over the winter months. So update your patio in an instant with the outdoor range from Heal’s. We love the contemporary Eos collection by Matthew Hilton. Constructed from powder-coated aluminium that won’t rust over time, the range is lightweight – both literally and visually – making it the low maintenance choice. Awarded the prestigious Design Guild Mark Award, there’s an assortment of chairs, benches and tables to choose from.

Eos Collection

Pull the look together with statement tableware guaranteed to impress your guests. The Danish Esrum Tableware Collection from Heal’s blends beautifully with modern monochrome schemes and its effective design is accentuated by a hand-glazed finish. Minimalist colour blocking compliments the matte surface and each piece is hand-thrown so no two are the same.
