2013 garden furniture at IKEA
Well they keep promising that spring is round the corner but thén it snows again and we're back to winter, however the air seems softer somehow, the light more luminous, the sky less grey. I popped my head out of the window to dead-head the primroses in the window boxes and I swear I could smell spring in the air, although it may have been the big viburnum bush coming into flower next to the window, whatever it was, it sure smelled good!
IKEA are well ahead of the game. My local store has erected a substantial marquee just to house their garden furniture range, which is pretty wide this year with some old favourites and some new, interesting additions, and all it those IKEA prices. I know some people who are really snobby about their garden furniture and would never consider it for their terrace. I think they are wrong not to,at least, consider IKEA . The pieces I have are still robust and attractive after 10 years and I like their design and innovation. And by the way, some other makes of garden furniture are really overpriced for what they are.
Anyway I'll get off my soapbox and show you my photos of the new collection:-
These are a bit of a Fermob Luxembourg chair-like but at this price, nowhere near the expenditure.. Love the turquoise, very vivid in a green space.
Modern black with matching table
Deckchairs, sun chairs and sun loungers at reasonable prices
Solar powered llights
Like this lacy, retro shaped chair
Handy trunk for poolside
Elegant white and wood table
Paper lanterns that are also solar powered, very clever
A stylish hammock for lazy days,if you have the space
