New bespoke laser cut decoration technology coming soon to Metal Furniture Design

Our bespoke, original furniture is already unique and eye-catching. However, we’re about to add a new line of tables and chairs that you can make more your own than anything we’ve done before.

Laser cutting is an exciting technology that uses a high power laser, guided by a computer, to burn or melt away materials, leaving a design in its wake. In the past, this system has been used to drill holes in diamond dies, sear through fabrics and even cut out parts for aerospace applications… and soon, the technique will be used by Metal Furniture Design on a range of our chairs and tables.

While the laser cutting technique we’re going to be using is perfectly precise, the sky is the limit in terms of the designs we will be cutting. Do you run a cafe? Then we could print your logo onto a collection of tables and chairs for you. Want a perfect wedding anniversary present for your other half? How about a collection of garden chairs with your initials and wedding date cut into the backs? Or maybe you want your child’s silhouette on a table for their bedroom. Contact us with your ideas and we can talk them through with you and give you a quote for a truly individual piece.

 

As well as decorating our chairs and tables with names and faces, we can also finish off your furniture with more stylised designs, as you can see from these example images to the left. If something like this takes your fancy, again, just contact us to talk it over and we can give you a quote. Put your thinking cap on, and we’ll be waiting for your call.

A new look for Metal Design Furniture’s website

We’re giving our website a facelift which will make it even easier to find and buy the exact, bespoke metal furniture of your dreams. The new design is spacious, elegant and easy on the eye… just like our furniture. The lay-out will change, making it easier to track down and consider the furniture you need to make your house a home.

The numerous new features include changes to the ‘basket’ feature of the website, so that every time you add something, it pops up, meaning you can keep a running tally of the amount you’re spending. If you make a mistake whilst ordering, it couldn’t be easier to remove items… although it’s even easier to keep adding them with all the beautiful pieces we have an offer!

Searching for furniture will also become easier, as we’ll show you similar items, in case something else catches your eye. On top of this, we’ll also show you complementary items that have been bought by our other customers, so you might find another piece to complete the room or garden you’re kitting out.

The testimonials section will become the customer reviews section, where you will be able to comment on reviews left by others – so if you agree with another customer that, for example, your new Tivioli Arch is the best thing that’s ever happened to your garden, you’ll be able to say so.

The most exciting news is that if sign up to our e-newsletter, you can get a 5% discount from your first order, making our range even better value than it is already.

Metal Furniture Design to return to the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show with more stylish garden furniture

Back in 2011, Metal Design Furniture’s wrought iron dining set was featured in a beautiful garden that won an RHS silver medal at the Hampton Court Palace Flower show. The Potential Feast Garden, dreamt up and executed by Raine Garden Design, was filled with edible plants such as tomatoes and lettuce, as well as our stylish and practical outdoor dining set. The garden personified everything we live for here at Metal Design Furniture – outdoor, healthy, happy living in eye-catching surroundings. We were really excited to go along to the show and be part of an award winning team.

You can read more about the furniture that featured in the award-winning garden here.

This year, we’re delighted to be going back to the show, which takes place from July 9th to the 14th. If you have never been to the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, you’re missing a real treat. The world’s largest annual flower show features gorgeous gardens and wonderful wildlife, as well as competitions, music, food and drink – and back this year, Metal Design Furniture! You can buy tickets and read more about this year’s show on the RHS website, which can be found here.

We’ll be teaming up with the talent at Raine Garden Design once again, so watch this space to see what pieces of garden furniture our colourful and comfortable collaboration will feature this time. Fingers crossed we’ll be bringing home another medal!
