A Contemporary Feast – Showcasing Our Wrought Iron Furniture in 2011

Just a quick reminder to our loyal subscribers – don’t forget we’ll be at the Hampton Court Flower Show next week.

See our exquisite Castrum Collection showcased at ‘The Potential Feast.’ Raine & Fiona Garden Designs have selected our Wrought Iron Furniture to be at the centre of their contemporary show garden.

Aptly named; The Potential Feast is all about mealtime, offering the modern couple of today an oasis for al fresco dining but also cleverly creating a productive, functional space. The garden is in fact edible but contained within a small plot, using many space saving techniques for an urban lifestyle.

The design is about pleasure, enjoyment and lifestyle. We love it because it embodies Mediterranean values of al fresco living and dining, fresh herbs and produce, strong bouquets and plenty of family time and relaxation.

The stylish Wrought Iron Furniture showcased is from our Castrum Collection which was chosen to add style and elegance whilst feeling warm and comfortable or lived in. The look and feel offers the modern couple the perfect setting to relax with a glass of vino in their own piece of paradise.

We are keeping everything crossed in the hope that Raine & Fiona Garden Designs will surpass their Silver and Bronze achievements from 2009 and 2010. So, come along and support us and our stunning Wrought Iron Furniture! Besides, the show is a fantastic day out.

Not to be missed this year includes the Edible Garden by the RHS, a Wonderland of Roses, English Poet’s Gardens and a 60s floristry show. You can also pick up gardening tips, grow-your-own advice and plenty of inspiration.

The Hampton Court Palace Flower Show takes place next week, Tuesday 5th to Sunday 10th July. For those that can’t make it – the BBC cover the event. Or for a sneak peak – click through to the RHS website here.

The Colours Of Summer

Why not reflect the colours of summer also in the finish of your furniture?

Nature has given summer a true sense of beauty, and nothing is more beautiful than the natural colours of summer. From blooming pink roses to golden sunshine, and from the blue of the ocean to the green of the trees, there is a full pallet of hues found in nature during the summer.

Much of our metal patio furniture can be enhanced by a wide colour pallet of finishes including some brilliant summer shades like pearl gold, sunny golden, bronze antique, gold antique, gold or green patina, and more.

Is your garden mostly green? If you don’t plant flowers, but you enjoy the beauty of green leaves on trees and bushes, you might want to add some colour to your garden with some gold finished furniture.

But even if you are a green thumb and love your roses or your begonias, our colour palette offers some gorgeous choices to compliment any shade of flowers or bushes you may have in your garden.

The romantic, antique style of many of our wrought iron garden furniture pieces goes well with the rich hues of summer, and would look wonderful in any garden. We also offer some indoor furniture, metal plant stands, and more.

Pale Beauty: Garden Furniture In Cream Or White

White suggest purity, romance, and beauty. And garden furniture in cream or white can transform your garden from ordinary to breathtaking. If you’re planning to purchase some new iron furniture for your back garden, consider some of our many gorgeous choices in cream and white.

The Paris collection offers romantic, whimsical patio furniture that will enhance any city or country garden. Our set of three Paris garden chairs and round bistro table come in both cream white or pure white, and would look lovely on a garden patio or arranged inside our Paris gazebo.

Accessorize with different tones of white and cream for a romantic effect or add a splash of colours to the whites, with vibrant flowers or decorative cushions.

Our Castrum Collection also offers a white or cream iron table and chairs, with a hint of antique style, and a fused glass. This collection would look lovely either in your conservatory or in your dining room. It is designed for indoor or outdoor use. There are three styles of chairs available, a garden bench, and coordinating cushions for more comfortable seating.

Looking for something to create an outdoor lounge area? We also offer a range of outdoor metal furniture specifically for this purpose, including armchairs, sofas, loveseats, coffee tables, all of which can be purchased in either cream white or pure white to match the rest of your outdoor metal furniture. The sofa in our Classico range also converts to a bed, and can be used inside as a guest bed or a sofa in your indoor lounge.

All of the Classico iron furniture is designed to last for years and years and is weather proof and extremely durable.
