Are you sitting comfortably?
With summer upon us we’ve all been sprucing up our gardens looking forward to entertaining outside with friends and family. Your lawn can be neatly trimmed and your borders resplendent but then there’s that moment when you have to face up to the fact that your garden furniture is looking, well…a little shabby! Sefton Meadows Garden Centre is based in Liverpool just off the M58 where they sell garden furniture and accessories as well as having a very comprehensive online offer.
They have just launched their Florence Lounge Set which ‘blends both outstanding design and comfort ensuring an excellent social spot for any outdoor space’. Very kindly they have sent us a set for a review. The trendy graphite-coloured set is made up of a 2 seat sofa, 2 armchairs and a coffee table. It’s made from a rattan-look plastic and rather marvellously both the furniture and the cushions are both weather-proof and maintenance-free which is a boon with our changeable weather. Being made out of plastic it’s also lightweight, so if you want to be able to move the set around your outdoor space, it’s no problem.
The set was delivered to my front door in a large cardboard box with the various elements stored neatly in see-through plastic bags. I had a brief moment of ‘IKEA anxiety’ when I saw how many pieces there were, but the instructions were very clear and the furniture pieces were each marked up so you knew what went where. They then snapped together very effectively and with no metal elements there is no danger of rust.
It took about half an hour in all from opening the box to trying out the set. The grey waterproof cushions are very smart and make sitting on the chairs and sofa a very comfortable experience. The table is perfect for holding a few bottles, glasses and snacks or for an afternoon tea.
At the moment it’s on a special offer and is reduced from £399.99 to £349.99 so if you like the look of it now is the time to buy! The Florence Outdoor Garden Lounge Set is available here.
