"We felt the garden furniture was a great addition to the existing range, and like the industrial and functional feel of the pieces," COS creative director Karin Gustafsson told Dezeen.

Other items for the garden were added to the collections, including flower pots and accessories for outdoor dining such as trays, bowls and carafes.

The colour palette mainly consists of yellow, green and grey shades, while materials like light wood and cork were also selected.

COS and Hay began their collaboration in August 2015, when COS debuted the first set of items curated from Hay's collection in three of its European stores. This first range included a pair of folding wooden tables by Spanish designer Tomas Alonso.
