Why choose southwold

Shop Southwold

Welcome to our Southwold Collection, luxury garden furniture, expertly handcrafted in Suffolk.

Inspired by traditional English blacksmith the Southwold range has been thoughtfully designed for comfort, style and quality, making it the perfect choice for outdoor dining and relaxing.

Gardens have always been a sanctuary, a calm place to sit and escape from it all, so whether you’re furnishing a compact city balcony or a sprawling country retreat, your furniture outside should be every bit as stylish as that inside.

The Southwold garden furniture range includes chairs, tables and benches for any outside space and the timeless elegance will suit traditional and more contemporary gardens alike.  

Our Bistro Sets are ideal for the poolside, balcony or patio and are also well suited inside the home too. The stylish round table has a slatted top, attractive and practical allowing rainwater to drain away. Pair the table with our popular carver chairs to create the perfect resting spot to enjoy a drink or snack while enjoying the garden.

The best-selling Rectangle Dining Table Sets are a highly practical and versatile choice, perfect for larger garden gatherings. There are lots of possibilities for seating with carver chairs, side chairs and benches to suit all occasions. For even larger gatherings you can create a banquet style dining table using two of the rectangle tables pushed together.

Our popular Round Garden Dining Table Sets create a welcoming, friendly and comfortable outside space, perfect for smaller groups and families. Ideal for seating up to 6, pair the table with carver chairs or side chairs to create an inviting outside dining setting.

The Oval Dining Sets are the best of both worlds – combining the practicality of a rectangle table with the intimacy of a round one. Suits all settings and is great in smaller garden spaces too.

The coffee tables are another popular addition to the range, perfect for creating a relaxing seated area with chairs or benches. Our range of benches are available either with or without backs and include 2, 3 and 4 seater options. Whether you are using around a dining table or just as a standalone bench, the timeless elegance of these benches will look fantastic in your garden for years to come. The chairs are available in 2 designs, our carver chairs with arms and our side chairs without arms.   

Design & Comfort

Much thought has gone into the ergonomics of the seat design and careful selection of the material sections used to ensure just the right amount of ‘give’ is coupled with the required structural strength. The chair design for example is tapered front to back and the back rest has a curved form which combined, improves aesthetics and comfort. The legs use 8mm thick strip steel for strength and rigidity whereas the seat base uses 3mm thick strip to give comfort and spring. Cushions can be ordered with your furniture for ultimate comfort but Harrod Horticultural are confident through customer feedback that even without padding the chairs are definitely kind to a behind.

Handcrafted Production

The handcrafted production is very telling in the high quality of the Southwold Collection.  It is all handmade by skilled technicians and finished in Harrod Horticultural’s workshops in Suffolk where manufacturing has been going on for over 65 years. Due to the handmade nature of the products all pieces are unique. Parts are cut, rolled, hand assembled and then precision welded to form the whole – no customer assembly required.

Before final finishing, all of the products are hot dipped in a bath of molten zinc which envelops the steel in a blanket of sacrificial rust protection. Each piece of furniture is therefore extremely tough and durable, and with a substantial weight, so will withstand the most extreme British weather.

Hand Etched Finish

The hand etched finish is something to really admire.  Each piece is chemically ‘etched’ by hand after the zinc coating is applied leaving an antique patina which improves as the product weathers. The magic of this finish, is that the unique character of each piece of furniture only improves with age, the more seasons pass the more the appearance is enhanced. Colours can vary from light to dark grey. The finish is always varied, it is not a paint and not designed to be completely uniform, which adds to the charm or these unique garden tables, chairs and benches.

25 Year Guarantee

Every piece of garden furniture in this luxury range are covered by a 25 year structural guarantee. Our testing suggests that due to the level of 25-year quality of manufacture and materials

Comfort, beauty and quality are important considerations, something that is present in each piece of the elegant Southwold Collection by Harrod Horticultural that is beautifully hand crafted, hot dip galvanised and hand etched to give a distinctive antique appearance that continues to improve with age.
