Outdoor living for every space

HerCanberra Team

The grass may be crisp and dry and the beaches packed but summer is here to stay.

However, that doesn’t mean your slightly dodgy outdoor furniture has to stay too. With weeks of summer BBQs, drinks, get-togethers and pool parties stretching ahead, there’s plenty of time to kit out your backyard, courtyard or balcony with the latest trends in outdoor living.

We’re not talking about sun bleached chair covers and wicker that’s seen better days either. We’re talking about resort style lounges, daybeds with sensible shade cover and timeless dining settings that are well worth the investment.

Here are some of this summer’s hottest outdoor living trends from Outdoor Elegance at Burning Log.

A little slice of heaven

Got big plans but short on space? Balconies can easily be transformed from thin strips of sunshine into lush outdoor rooms using smart space saving furniture and vibrant outdoor plants.

The Aspen Lounge


The Aspen Lounge can be configured to fit any space and comes in two fantastic colours, helping you choose the perfect style for your home.

The Knut gives you a loveseat ideal for reading and relaxing without compromising your limited outdoor space.

As for outdoor dining, a versatile teak & aluminium table like the Corfu will allow for lots of guests with the choice of dining chairs or bench seats.

A lush escape

If you’re looking to make your courtyard or large balcony into a breezy escape, there are plenty of ways to make the most of the space you have.

The Hampton Lounge’s four-piece set can be spread out or grouped together depending on your requirements and if you have a spacious deck to furnish, the Maldives is the modular solution that provides the perfect configuration for your space without sacrificing on quality.

Resort Style

If you’re one of the lucky ones with plenty of room to create your dream outdoor area, you can really sink your teeth into some of Burning Log’s timeless pieces.

The Cabana Daybed

Why not centre your entertaining area around a table perfect for long summer lunches? Or, if you’re wanting to turn your backyard into a haven for relaxation, you can’t go past the Resort Style Cabana Daybed or a one ensconced in a cute shell shade like the Cebu Daybed.

If your favourite summer nights are spent sipping cool drinks as the sun sets, why not opt for a long lounge with built-in tables?


Outdoor Elegance at Burning Log is designed so you can touch and feel each of the settings in your own time, so you know you’re choosing the right fit for your outdoor room. You can visit them at the corner of Wollongong and Maryborough Streets, Fyshwick.
