Being a longstanding OKA fan, I am always excited to see what the new season has in store. Whether you live in the country or the city, their luxurious take on rustic wares has something to suit pretty much every home and garden. This season, with Ben Fogle as their new ambassador, it was refreshing to see that they have moved towards a younger, more contemporary aesthetic, with bright colours and modern designs. British garden lunches are about to get very stylish…

I was particularly taken with their coral chinaware (pictured above), featuring simple white plates with a raised coral border in a lovely deep red. The coral centerpiece, in the same red, would also make a young, fresh addition to any summer lunch.

I also fell head over heels in love with their Mediterranean-style textiles, with warm cornflower blues on a simple white background, taking you straight to a world of margheritas and hazy summer siestas.

And last but not least: the garden furniture. Practical but stylish, the OKA team have honed their outdoor collection to perfection. Don’t worry – the trusty staples are still there, but this season’s new additions are a must for anyone wanting to jazz up their garden in time for Easter. The best-selling rattan garden furniture, the Luccombe range, now comes in a warm pale grey, looking wonderfully weathered straight out of the warehouse. We love the new East Hampton double sunbed, which is as stylish as a sofa, with matching pale grey cushions. (Ideal for those hazy siestas). An added bonus – it is water resistant.

And last but by no means least, the new parasols should be top of everyone’s list. Big and beautiful, they put every bog standard garden umbrella to shame.
