Bramblecrest garden furniture

Choosing the right material for your garden furniture

We understand the importance of making the right choice when it comes to garden furniture. Bramblecrest has a wide variety of ranges which are divided into collections by the material that they are made from. Choosing the right material for your outdoor space is a good starting point when considering new outdoor furniture – here’s a guide to take you through our collections.

Woven

Our woven furniture collection, also referred to as ‘outdoor rattan’, retains the style of natural wicker with the benefits of being impervious to the elements and low maintenance. All furniture is built on an aluminium framework, making it lightweight, strong and rust-free.

There is an abundance of shapes, styles, colours and sizes in this collection. Some of our woven ranges are more traditional in style, such as our new Chedworth range and our best selling Monterey which is now available in a new Sandstone shade. If you’re looking for outdoor rattan furniture with a contemporary modular style, our new Kingscote range (available in two colours) should fit the bill. Bledington, another new range, adds a modern twist to traditional outdoor rattan with a unique wood-grain finish on the aluminium framework. This provides the beauty of a natural product without the high level of maintenance.

Aluminium

Our growing aluminium collection consists of modern, lightweight, rust-free tubular aluminium furniture which is long lasting, durable and easy to clean.

Collections in this range have been designed with contemporary looks, style and practicality in mind and are sure to enhance your outdoor living space. Our Portofino and Tuscan ranges incorporate a distinctive woven panel within the framework of the furniture, adding an eye-catching feature. Havana, a new range in this collection, has the option of a pure white frame or anthracite grey. Our La Rochelle is now available with deep cushions in a slate grey shade – perfect for those wanting to embrace the darker look.

Our Seville dining range oozes style and practicality with lightweight, stackable chairs and easy to clean aluminium table frames with recessed ceramic tops. This range can be left outside all year with minimal maintenance required.

Upholstered

Panama, a fully upholstered range, features fixed fabric with no loose cushions. This creates a clean and contemporary look whilst providing the ultimate in comfort and practicality. Lightweight and low maintenance, the dove grey rattan is upholstered in a sophisticated graffito grey fabric. The fabric is water, mould and frost resistant and can be left outside all season with minimal maintenance.

Marine Faux- Leather

The marine faux-leather (or all-weather vinyl) of our Monte Carlo range adds a touch of super-yacht chic to any outdoor space. With its stylish and contemporary upholstery, this range offers supreme comfort without the need for loose cushions.

With its water, UV and frost-resistant properties, in inclement conditions water will run off the surfaces of the faux-leather simply requiring a swift wipe down prior to use.

Fabric

Coloured to the core, our quick-dry, high-tech, fully weatherproof fabric is UV resistant and made to withstand the elements. With its ample cushioning, our new bold and stylish St Lucia range is upholstered with the look and feel of an indoor sofa.

Built on a rust-free aluminium frame, furniture is lightweight and easy to move. The fabric is also back-coated with a water-resistant liner to prevent water ingress and to minimise the drying process.

Teak

The timeless and robust qualities of teak are why it remains a popular choice for garden furniture. A naturally good looking material which ages gracefully, teak contains high levels of oil making it weather-resistant and able to withstand exposure to the variable British climate. Whether you are looking for a bench or a classic dining table, you can buy our timber products with the confidence that you are not contributing to the destruction of the world’s forests - all our timber furniture is covered by accreditation.
