As we all prepare to spend more time socialising outside over the coming months, here we share some of our favourite items to bring a special warmth to an outside space for enjoying with family and friends.
Warming up with Forma House...
Eva Solo Fire Globe - £295
Nothing is cosier than gathering around a bonfire with its beautiful flames & intense heat, and with the decorative FireGlobe fireplace, it is safe to light a fire directly onto the patio or elsewhere in the garden. The powder-coated aluminium base beautifully sets off the flickering golden flames,with the fireplace creating the perfect mood and warming heat when it starts to feel cool outside.
FireGlobe is almost sculptural with its hemispherical shape that cleverly protects the fire from the wind. FireGlobe is not just for cool spring evenings and the summer – it is also intended as a decorative and warming element to use during autumn and winter.
FireGlobe does not have to sit in the same place all the time, it is easy to move around the garden or patio thanks to the hole in the top, which acts as a handle. A loose grate in the bottom of the globe ensures adequate ventilation, while the three legs keep the fire place sufficiently high above the ground to prevent scorching of grass or paving stones.
Eva Solo Fire Globe log holder - £75
The FireGlobe log holder is an almost sculptural solution to storing firewood. The elegant yet sturdy log holder matches the design of the FireGlobe fireplace. The log holder is generously sized and practical, making it easy to move firewood around. It is designed for both indoor and outdoor use.
Eva Solo bird feeder - £40
Soak up some calming nature vibes in your garden with this stuning mouth-blown hanging bird feeder that can attach to a branch or under an overhang. Including a draining hole to prevent food from freezing, this beautifully designed item makes for a perfect feeding station during winter months and encourages wildlife into your outdoor space for you to enjoy first thing in the morning or late into the night.
Zuperzozial breeze collection - from £7
Perfect for setting an outdoor table or to use at casual gatherings with friends during winter months, the biodegradable Zuperzozial collection is made from light-weight bamboo & corn with reinforced melamine resin and takes around 3 years to degrade once disposed of... a great addition to the party, whilst also being kind to the environment.
