Solar floor lamp

Now the summer evenings are here and we're enjoying the fresh air in our gardens compared to our muggy homes, chances are you'll want to stay outside as long as possible and enjoy your garden oasis even once the sun has set. In many ways, your sun lounger, patio dining set, or outdoor sofa has become your go-to lounge space this season, and in doing so, you'll want to deck out your garden to look good and become a functional space.

Maybe try an outdoor rug, a glamorous bar cart for your lemonade and Pimms, or a stylish solar floor lamp to keep the outdoor entertaining going after dark. Powered by the sun during the day, these planet-friendly lights elevate your patio and can be easily moved around. Move around your patio to accommodate more space for guests or place it near your chair of choice to read late into the evenings.

We've shared the ten best solar floor lamps to buy right now that pack style and substance.
