As soon as the sun starts shining, we can’t wait to get outside to do some al fresco dining with friends and family! Outdoor living has a fabulously informal feel to it and interior and garden brand, Garden Trading, nails this casual yet elegant scheme.
From bread bins to beautiful outdoor sofas, Garden Trading’s range is varied but the pieces are instantly recognisable owing to their distinctive style and elegant colour palette. Uncomplicated, fuss-free and exuding laid-back sophistication, the Garden Trading collection has a timeless feel with an emphasis on practicality that the Houseologists love.
Garden Trading was founded in 1994 by product designer and developer, Jon Holloway, who was inspired to make the leap to begin his own brand after realising there was space in the UK market for classic pieces using clean lines and honest materials. Ethical materials which are responsibly sourced are key for Garden Trading and the brand strives to use sustainable materials in order to create pieces that fly in the face of throwaway culture.
Inspired by rural houses’ unique and characterful feel, Jon began creating a collection that provided stylish solutions to everyday living as well as a collection of beautiful outdoor furniture pieces, perfect for chic outdoor celebrations. The St Mawes Drinks/Planter Table, with its central recess designed for planting blooms or as a fabulous fixed ice bucket, is perfect for parties while the Rive Driote Bistro Table is ideal for drinks for two!
When it comes to indoor furniture, Garden Trading continues to work with this classically stylish yet warm and relaxed feel. Weathered timber finishes, simple lines and a richness of quality make these pieces a perfect fit for Houseology’s Chic look which places emphasis on style and comfort to create spaces that can be enjoyed and admired.
