I had been admiring this furniture online for a long time as we have recently redesigned our garden and needed something new. However, I had some doubts in my mind about it. We have a very small garden, we are recently retired (so not as young as we used to be) we live in a very modest house on a very ordinary housing estate. My concern was that the furniture was too big for our small garden, expensive (would we get the good out of it) and too ostentatious for our modest home. In the end I really couldn't find anything I liked as much so we decided to take the plunge and treat ourselves to a table and a selection of other pieces that would give us flexibility. We are so glad we did buy it and can honestly say it is the best purchase we have made in a long time. Yes, it is big and it does dominate our small garden but it is so beautiful to look at it feels like a work of art in the garden. It's so lovely to look at out of our living room window and even looks good on a dull wet day. It is a real focus for the garden and turns our outdoor space into a lovely dining and entertaining area. We use the garden so much more than we used to, hardly a day goes by when we are not out there with coffee or a glass of wine or eating with family and friends. Yes, it is expensive (by our standards) but it is worth every penny. Not only because of the use we get from it and it's good looks but also because it is so well made and robust. It will certainly outlive us but we have already told our children they will inherit certain pieces and they are more than happy with that arrangement, a real heirloom as I think it will outlive them too. We will never have to spend money on new furniture and will never have to spend time maintaining it, in fact it is getting better with age as it is developing a nice patina. Therefore it is an investment and worth the initial expense. Yes, it is a bit ostentatious for an ordinary back garden on an ordinary estate but the pleasure we get from looking at our garden and sitting outside outweighs any of that. Our friends and family comment on how it has transformed our garden and the quality of the workmanship. Even the window cleaner says he tells everyone about our lovely garden. Our Grandchildren love sitting outside and eating their meals out there and I never worry about them spilling anything as it is so easy to clean. We are so glad we treated ourselves, Truly the best purchase in a long time.
Many thanks for your fabulous review. We are so pleased you love the Southwold furniture collection as much as we do.
SOUTHWOLD GARDEN FURNITURE COLLECTION
This new handcrafted traditional furniture collection takes its name from the popular Suffolk coastal town of Southwold, just a short distance from Harrod Horticultural where we design and manufacture the range in our workshops.
The range is inspired by traditional blacksmith furniture which became popular at the start of the industrial revolution over 200 years ago. Many of the shapes, forms and general look and feel quote directly from this heritage.
Where our designs differ from tradition however, is the depth of study and care we have taken to ensure that our furniture is as much comfortable as beautiful. Much thought has gone into the ergonomics of the seat designs and careful selection of material section and thickness to ensure just the right amount of 'give' is coupled with the required structural strength. The chair designs for example use a range of thicknesses of strip steel depending on the design need. The legs use 8mm thick strip for strength and rigidity whereas the seat base and back rest use 3mm slats to give comfort and spring to the seat. Cushions can be ordered with your furniture for ultimate comfort but we are confident that even without padding our chairs will be kind to your behind.
HIGH SKILLED PRODUCTION
All of our furniture is hand made by skilled technicians and finished in our workshops in Suffolk where we have been manufacturing for over 65 years. Due to the handmade nature of the products all pieces are unique, these slight differences add up to sets of furniture with real soul and charm in a world of mass produced conformity. Before final finishing all of the products are dipped in a bath of molten zinc which envelops the steel in a blanket of sacrificial rust protection. Each furniture piece is therefore extremely tough and durable, and with a substantial weight, so will withstand the most extreme British weather.
The furniture collection is structurally guaranteed for 25 years, but our testing suggests that the furniture can genuinely be considered as heirloom pieces that will last for generations if looked after. Before the final finish, all furniture is hot dip galvanised in molten zinc.
Each piece of furniture is chemically etched by hand after the zinc coating is applied leaving an antique finish. The joy of these hand processes means that every piece has its own character that evolves with age and improves as the product weathers. Colours can vary from from light to dark grey. The finish is always varied, it is not a paint and is not intended to be completely uniform, which adds to the charm of these unique pieces
It is quite normal for tables and chairs to arrive looking mottled grey with some white patches, furniture will also look considerably darker if wet. The finish tends to move towards a slightly more whitish grey over the course of the seasons. Variable environmental conditions means that there is no absolute time for weathering to occur, but typically a product will move towards slightly whiter shades over a couple of months.
To clean your furniture, use no more than mild detergent, water and a nylon scrubbing brush. The furniture can be left outside year round in all weathers.
If you live very close to the sea please be aware that a salt laden atmosphere can greatly accelerate corrosion, so we recommend cleaning more frequently. Please note that the white zinc oxides that develops are not harmful to the skin. Zinc oxide is used in wide range of cosmetics and personal care products.
