The setting sun hasn’t quite dipped below the horizon of this summer, yet. We’re of the persuasion to squeeze every last sun-ripened drop out of the season. This means that here at InsideOut Living, we have time and resource to shine some warming beams on a brand we really could not do without; Bramblecrest. The outside wares specialists excel in beautifully crafted outdoor furniture, with a particular focus on the humble garden table set and swinging cocoon. The Bramblecrest garden furniture collection has been built with exceptional attention to detail, which is not surprising considering that Bramblecrest sees its products as ‘garden furniture with distinction’.
A family-owned and operated company, they have weathered some 20 years of trade and seen vast growth, they heavily helped to put rattan garden furniture onto the map. Importantly though, they remain grounded to their Cotswold roots, where interestingly their HQ is situated in an old WWII hangar. The same attention to quality and a steely fascination to produce outdoor furniture done properly has led them to become market pacesetters in many respects.
Since our journey began in providing a carefully handpicked selection of goods for inside and outside the home, Bramblecrest garden furniture was always going to feature in our plans. A choice rewarded; often our top-performing items that jostle for the top spot are either a Bramblecrest garden table set or a hanging Cocoon. It’s outdoor furniture with comfort, luxury and convenience at its heart. The real proof comes in the finish and aesthetic that has become their calling card.
The Bramblecrest Monterey Outdoor Furniture Collection
As a brand, Bramblecrest comprehensively covers all garden furniture staples, with outdoor furniture collections such as their popular Monterey range boasting a wealth of sought-after rattan garden furniture. However, the product really shines in the details. Style meets utility, that’s the sweet spot.
Bramblecrest Monterey 6 Seater Dining Table Set
A garden table set with a fine regard for detail comes in the Bramblecrest Monterey 6 seater dining table set, which has a rotating ‘lazy Susan’ serving tray built into the centre of the table around a handy 3-metre tall Parasol. An irresistible take on garden hosting, eliminating the inconvenience from serving food. We love the rattan wicker weave as well, an easy on the eye smooth-weave rattan in a dove grey colour. What’s more, the inbuilt UV stabilising qualities of the wicker prevent its colour from fading due to exposure to direct sunshine. This bodes well considering that’s how we intend to spend our time in the garden, soaked in the sunshine! However, if the weather should turn (no, we don’t like those thoughts either), this rattan garden furniture set can effortlessly cope with the rain. The cushions are water-resistant and the rattan weave designed for all weather conditions.
Bramblecrest Monterey Bistro Set
It is the same finer details that elevates the elegant Monterey Bistro Set, a garden table set of note. No, we mean it does quite literally elevate. The table adjusts upwards as tall as 68cm, so you can transform the surface to fit the occasion. A surface that radiates style in itself, constructed from a recessed ceramic, it provides looks but also enduring protection against the outdoors. This entire rattan garden furniture set is made from mostly recycled material at zero cost to aesthetic. Whilst, as with all Bramblecrest outdoor furniture, it is lightweight to lift and move – a sturdy aluminium frame holds the structures together nicely.
Bramblecrest Monterey 3 Seat Outdoor Sofa Set
Perfect for those who enjoy lounging in the garden, the Bramblecrest Monterey 3 Seat Outdoor Sofa Set is ideal for gatherings of family and friends. Like the round bistro table mentioned above, the rectangular dining table that comes with this outdoor sofa set can be easily lowered or raised, and it is accompanied by a 3-seater sofa, 2 armchairs, and 2 stools. An elegant blend of style and substance, this Bramblecrest garden furniture set may well have been designed for use outside, but would also be right at home in a conservatory.
Bramblecrest Weatherproof Furniture Covers
Although, as with all rattan garden furniture, Bramblecrest products can withstand a good amount of time roughing it against the elements, we strongly recommend some cover during the more turbulent months. With this in mind, we went about sourcing a range of weatherproof furniture covers, available in different sizes and listed with their matching sets. They’re created from hard-wearing polyester and toggle close with drawstrings which will keep wind hassles to a minimum.
It’s with a wry smile that we sit at our comfortable Bramblecrest Monterey garden table set penning this very post, languishing in the mid July sun. We hope you too can find the benefits of this fantastic outdoor furniture.
