AD: Commissioned by Fishpools to provide my thoughts on their latest Garden Furniture Range.
Now the clocks have turned back and the sun has begun to show itself, we’re taking our first apprehensive steps outside into our garden spaces today. Whilst it not quite flip flop weather, (yet!), there’s nothing like a bit of
I thought we’d indulge ourselves in a bit of garden furniture shopping with Fishpools, your one stop shop for interiors and of course your gardens.
The Latest Garden Furniture From Fishpools
Fishpools are one of the oldest and largest furniture stores in the South East of England. And with a wealth of furniture that’s sure to spruce up your outdoor spaces, I’d thought we’d go for a bit of virtual shopping. After ten years our garden furniture has seen better days and maybe yours has too.
Of course, you may also be looking to add to a newly planned garden layout or additional seating to an area of your garden. Fishpools have an amazing array of designs to choose from so you’ll be hard pressed not to find something that would make your outdoor spaces look great and enhance your lifestyles.
Invest In The Best!
Furniture of any kind is an investment purchase and one that we need to take time to consider. After all, there’s no good buying to simply fill up our landfill sites with cheap furniture that doesn’t last and you’ll inevitably be out of pocket too. So if you’re going to buy, make sure it’s of high quality. You’ll be helping the environment as well as your bank balance in the long run.
Whilst we might not spend as much time outside as we do indoors, there is the weather to consider. It makes sense to do your homework and look for pieces that offer longevity through the likes of UV protection and powder coated aluminium frames. You’ll be pleased to know Fishpools offer both with their range of garden furniture.
Choosing The Right Furniture…
There’s no denying that we love our gardens but they’ve become more of an extension to our indoor living spaces rather than their being all about being green-fingered goddesses. They’ve become spaces to socialise and enjoy with family and friends.
Gardens come in all sizes and shapes and you’ll need to consider the size and shape of seating areas before you begin. And yes that will probably mean getting the tape measure out especially if space is limited. Better to be safe than sorry.
Some furniture pieces come ready made so it’s a valid point to check if the furniture you’ve chosen will go through the front door if that’s your only access point to your garden.
Much like our indoor spaces, our outdoor areas need as much careful consideration when buying furniture. Give yourself time to carefully consider what suits your needs and fits your garden spaces. A little bit of planning doesn’t go amiss when it comes to finding the perfect match for you and your lifestyle.
I’ve put together Fishpools latest garden furniture that may match your criteria.
The Versatile Entertainment Number
Want to combine a relaxed seating area but also like to eat outside? This versatile corner design would be ideal. The table rises to form a dining a table so no having to eat on your laps and avoiding the mess that ensues from messy eaters. There’s also the means of keeping your drinks cool and at hand with the built-in ice bucket. Offering you more time spent with family and friends.
Versatile Outdoor Living Room
We’re actually on the hunt for sofa style seating to our patio area as these provide a more relaxed vibe to your outdoor spaces. I particularly like this Kissimmee design above. It has a more contemporary feel and
This sofa set is also a lot more flexible than most garden furniture designs. Allowing you the freedom to arrange the chairs, sofa and table to suit the space you have. Pretty much like you would in living room.
The Mini Bar
Champagne anyone? Wanting to bring the party outside? Then the Mustique is
If space is tight, then Fishpools also do a compact four seat bar set too.
The Wanna Stay In Bed
Truth be told, this would be the ultimate of indulgences for our garden. Just the thought of taking time out and being cocooned in this comfortable shell even on a wet day would be worth the investment. The only problem is I probably wouldn’t want to come out!
The Belize day bed is maintenance free too. Made from free hardwearing rattan that contains UV protection, making it suitable for all weathers. And designed to live outdoors all year round so no worrying about where you’d store something of this size.
When it comes to larger gatherings, circular tables make for a more intimate setting. They’re definitely a more sociable way of seating your guests. Allowing you to see and chat to more than just the person across from you. Circular tables also take up less space.
I also like how this Barbuda design compacts when your guests have gone home by simply pushing the benchlike seats into the table. With no legs to trip little ones or pets to get tangled up in. Its a
Small Is Beautiful
Small doesn’t mean you can’t get value for money. This Honduras set is cleverly designed with hidden footstools under the seats to provide seating from 4 to 8 in a matter of seconds. We all have those unexpected guests and when you don’t you can put up your feet in style.
The Sun Worshipper
Heard the latest? There’s a three-month heatwave coming. We live in hope
