The sun is shining, the flowers are blooming, and the evenings are wonderfully light – it must be British summertime! Here at Scaramanga, we love our vintage and retro homewares, but they don’t have to stay inside. In honour of the beginning of the warmer weather, we’ve got together our five top homewares that can spend the summer outside with you.

One of the best things about summer is being able to pick up your plate, and eat outside in the warm early evening sunshine. Whether you’re planning a family feast or a lingering lunch, our vintage wooden folding chairs are the ideal accessory to go with your garden table. These chairs will add a retro touch to any patio, decking or lawn.

Our vintage tableware is sure to set the scene in your garden this summer. Create a beautiful alfresco dining experience with hand beaten brass plates, chai glasses, wooden place mats and stone coasters.
Transporting drinks and food outside from the kitchen to your garden has just got so much easier, you’ll love our Scaramanga vintage trays, £37.50, we have them in a variety of colours – A much better option than a plastic tray. Use them for anything, from stands for pots, trays for drinks, small table for the kids toys, the possibilities are endless – these old shabby chic teak tray tables are ideal home to garden accessory.
We love to have centre piece to gather round, whether that be you outdoor dining table or one of new in fire bowls. It may be summer but when outside in the UK, we need a some source of warmth, our collection of original Kadai fire bowls includes this mini metal kadai fire bowl, £110 are the answer. Each is made from an old traditional Indian cooking pot called a kadai. Originally these large pots were used for communal cooking across India and can still be seen used for wedding parties. It may be summer but when outside in the UK, we need a some source of heat.
