Find all you need to head outside this summer at DINO FINO’s Outdoor Furniture Month.

Throughout summer your outdoor space transforms into an extension of your home. The indoor/outdoor living trend when the weather heats up – especially popular in Malta and across the Mediterranean – creates a lifestyle for you and your loved ones that is built around the warmth of a laid-back summer.

Not sure what you need to set up your own stylish outdoor summer retreat?

This July, head to DINO FINO for Outdoor Furniture Month, where you will find all the essentials to take the indoors out. Our range of top outdoor furniture brands offer innovative collections of sun-ready sofas, swing-chairs, coffee tables, dining tables and so much more.

Here are the top outdoor furniture must-haves to check out at DINO FINO this month.

Dining table

Nothing says summertime like balmy evenings spent around a table outdoors, for an al fresco meal among family and friends.

For this, you’ll need a showstopping dining table, which is both weather-proof and adaptable to your needs. Take a look at the hugely versatile ‘Extendable Squid’ from S•CAB (, the elegant and modern ‘TIBIDABO’ table from Varaschin ( or the eye-catching ‘ART. 9870F’ from the Coral Reef collection at Roberti (


Another must-have for lounging outside this summer is the sofa. Much like the couch you may have in your living room, today’s outdoor sofas offer the height of comfort and style but are made from weather-friendly materials.

For extra durability (and to help you store it off-season), consider fully modular designs like the ‘BELT’ Collection from Varaschin, which boasts an okumè wood structure, upholstery in weather-proof fabric and Dryfeel foam for outdoor use. Turn heads with the ‘TIBIDABO High sofa’ also from Varaschin, inspired by the shape of a tree and its foliage. If you want something a little more traditional, try the ‘Hamptons’ model from Roberti or their award-wining ‘Oasi’ daybeds.

Sunbeds, recliners and chaise-longue

To truly soak up the sun this summer, you’ll need some sunbeds, recliners or a stylish chaise-longue.

Emu ( offers a vast collection of sunbeds – from simple, stackable models like the ‘Holly’, to the supremely elegant ‘Shine’. S•CAB also offer sunbeds such as the ‘Tahiti’, while Roberti’s ergonomic ‘ART. 9578’ chaise-longue from the Caribe Collection is the ideal spot for a lazy afternoon lounging under a sunshade.

Umbrellas, sunshades or parasols

While the sunshine is the hallmark of summer, it makes sense to add some areas of shade into your outdoor space to protect you and your loved ones from the height of the day’s heat.

Check out the range of sunshades from Emu or make a feature of your shaded area using the ‘Coral Reef’ parasol from Roberti.


If you hope to entertain guests in your garden or terrace this summer, you will need extra chairs on standby.

Look no further than the ‘Next Outdoor’ chair from Infiniti (, which blends plastic, steel and wood in a range of different colours. It even won the Good Design Award in 2014!

The ‘DRESS_CODE’ armchair from S•CAB will also allow your guests to chill out in style.

Accent tables

Smaller, accent tables dotted around your yard are useful to put your cold beer or cocktail on while you relax on your recliner.

Varaschin’s ‘Emma’ collection includes a coffee table with a ceramic top and solid powder-coated woven aluminium frame, while ‘DRESS_CODE’ from S•CAB is a family of casual coffee tables in different colours, heights and shapes.

Swing chair

For an item of outdoor furniture that doubles as a conversation-starter, consider adding a swing-seat to your space.

Today, swing chairs are no longer the novelty item they once were, with many brands launching innovative new designs to meet demand. The steel ‘Cool-là’ from Emu is part rocking-chair, part sofa, with an in-built shade. Roberti’s range of swing sofas such as the ‘Gravity’ offer a comforting, nest-like design, as does the ‘TIBIDABO Nest’ from Varaschin.

BONUS: Flooring

Complete your outdoor set-up with flooring that offers form and function, as well as quality and durability.

The ‘Marina Pacto’, ‘Marina Real’ and ‘Marina Compact’ designs in the Marina Decking collection from Skema ( offer high-quality, environmentally friendly, water-resistant and low-maintenance flooring options, which are quick and easy to install.
