This weekend, Metal Design Furniture went on an outing to the ExCel centre in London to have a look around the Grand Designs Live exhibition. Packed to the roof with fantastic ideas and innovations for your kitchen, garden, living spaces and bedrooms, the show was a must for anyone with an interest in making their homes as beautiful and functional as possible.
We were especially taken with these handy outdoor tables, which had spaces that could be used as either a cooler for wine or a BBQ pit. One could quite easily imagine passing the long summer nights sitting around one of those with friends and family, a tipple in one hand and a hot dog in the other. We also enjoyed sitting in some amazing chairs that hung high in the air and had a gentle swinging action, reminiscent of a hammock, but with a little more structural integrity… and better cushions!
Over in the kitchen section, we were blown away by the amazing Vitamix blender, which can make everything from soup to ice cream within seconds. A very charismatic man explained how it worked, chucking in ingredients and producing restaurant quality dishes while we watched. After tasting his amazing soup, which went from ingredients to the hot finished product in the flash of a, well, blender, it took quite a lot of convincing to get Mrs Metal Design Furniture to leave without one tucked into her handbag!
We then ventured into the design section where we cooed over affordable art, relaxed on crazily comfortable chaise longues and were dazzled by pet jellyfish, if you can believe that. This is definitely a treat for anyone who loves amazing home living… and we know all Metal Design Furniture fans are in that group. See you there next year?
Spring is in the air and it’s making us feel generous here at Metal Design Furniture!
With the weather hotting up and the summer holidays on the way, it’s time to start thinking about outdoor entertaining. And how better to keep your family and your friends comfortable while they’re enjoying the sights and scents of your garden than in some items from our affordable and elegant Oliver collection?
Oliver tables come in a range of shapes and styles and are suitable for outdoor or indoor use. You can complement these with a choice of chairs, with or without armrests and cushions. Have a look here for more information. All our Oliver pieces are Tuscan-inspired and built to last, so will keep your garden looking stylish for many years to come.
Another option is to go for the Oliver six-seater set, which features a hardy garden table as well as six comfy chairs. Available in a range of colours and patinas, the set starts at a very reasonable £845 and will keep the fussiest of families in al fresco dining comfort.
The best news of all is that if you buy a table and four chairs from our Oliver collection this week, we will give you this plant holder, worth up to £59, absolutely free! You can take your pick of a 22cm or 30cm diameter, whichever fits into your space more perfectly is yours free of charge when you purchase from our Oliver collection.
Now if that doesn’t put a spring in your step, we’re not sure what will!
Spring is finally here! The sun is shining, birds are singing, and it’s time for a bit of spring cleaning.

Finally, there’s the double Classica Bed in anthracite grey. This classic bed has a Tuscan feel that is bound to ease you off into a dreamless sleep every night.
Let Metal Design Furniture ease you into spring in style this year!
You may have heard of Labradoodle – a dog breed that is made from a mixture of Labradors and Poodles and that came into popularity in the 1980s when it was discovered that they were allergen-free. You may even have heard of Ligers and Zebroids – crossed lions and tigers, zebras and horses respectively. They might not be quite such friendly pets as Labradoodles, but they’re pretty amazing looking animals!
However, one new animal hybrid you might not have heard of yet is the Rabella. This amazing new creature, bred for the first time in Argentina last year, is a combination of a miniature Fallabella horse and a giant rabbit. These hopelessly cute critters are starting to make it over to the UK, where they have quickly become popular pets amongst the rich and famous.
Fed on a diet of hay, carrots and barley, Rabellas are said to make friendly and curious pets who are equally at home outside in the garden or inside your living room. Easily house trained and naturally gentle with children, these curious creatures will soon be everywhere, so get hold of one quickly if you can.
Their only downside is that they have been known to have a bit of a gnaw on the furniture until they are trained out of it – but we think our garden sets could stand the challenge of the Rabellas teeth. What better way to set off your fabulous new pet than to give him her the run of our Paris collection to shelter beneath. Or you could even snuggle up next to your new friend on one of our Classico sofas. You will be the talk of the town!
