From garden party to poolside drinks, the sun is out and LuxDeco – the go-to one-stop-shop for luxury homeware – has all of your summer soiree needs and inspiration covered at the click of a button

Likened to the Net-A-Porter for the home, LuxDeco is a game changer when it comes to discovering and shopping for luxury homeware. Expect super-luxe furniture, hundreds of powerhouse designer brands (think Missoni Home, Versace, Kartell and Kenzo) and beautifully styled curations of pieces for the home. The creatives behind the brand are celebrating summer – jet-set style – with a hotlist of items to bring a touch of that much sought-after vacay vibe, reminiscent of a resort on the French Riviera, into your abode.

1. “On sunny days you’ll want to spend copious amounts of time in the garden,” says Caitlin McCann, Senior Buyer. “An outdoor setting like the chic Skyline Sparta Pavilion Seater is essential for staying on the stylish side of summer. Made using only the world’s top-quality branded weaving fibre, this impressive piece is not only beautiful, but boasts a washable, weather-resistant and maintenance-free rattan form. It features a three-sided seating arrangement, in addition to a low table and curved roof.”

2. “Channeling the ombre trend in its own unique way, this pure cotton Jarris Square Cushion by Missoni Home features the brand’s iconic chevron pattern which has been reworked in tonal cool hues – from sophisticated navies through to regals purples and sharp teals,” says Sue Smart, Buying Director. “The reverse is a subtle blue-toned version of the front design. It’s perfecting for injecting some much-needed colour and pattern into a space. They look beautiful against white outdoors but equally as suited to pepping up and indoor sofa.”

3. “Good-quality wine glasses are a summer essential,” says Lee Sales, Senior Buyer. “Rosenthal Studio-Line’s set of six Tac 02 White Wine Glasses fuse good-looking design with expert craftsmanship. Gorgeously crafted from the finest glass, these wine glasses boast classically elegant forms with a fresh, contemporary twist. Standing tall at 26.6cm, they combine slim stems with large, slightly squared bowls, making them a stunning addition to any drinks table.”

4. “Entertaining both in and outdoors is what summer is made for,” says Alexandra O’Brien, Editorial Director. “Pinetti Vassoio’s Leather Tray will see you seamlessly serve in style while moving from area to area. Crafted from the finest leather, this circular piece will bring a little extra luxury to lunch in the garden, as well as making a great display piece for your bar. It comes in go-with-everything snow white and features a chunky lip to help avoid slips and spills.”

5. “There’s nothing better than an ice-cool glass of wine on a hot summer’s day,” says Linda Holmes, Creative Director. “Keep yourself your wine cool too with Sambonet’s stylish Bamboo Insulated Wine Cooler. Insulated to retain the chill in white wine or rose, this table top boasts soft, gentle curves for an elegant look.”

6. “A chic party calls for caviar and this clever Linley Caviar Bowl will ensure yours is served to perfection,” says Carina Bartle, Branding & Communications Director. “Designed to keep the caviar cool, the device comprises two bowls – one for the caviar and one for the ice – which are suspended one to top of the other by a brass frame. The bowls have been hand blown from 24% lead crystal and come presented on a solid walnut base with a spoon in natural horn.”
