Bargain of the week: garden glory days
Make the most of your garden this summer by combining good value with quality from Kingshall Furniture’s new range of smart-looking and versatile outdoor rattan pieces.
Colour-fast, strong and resistant to sun and rain, the rattan is hand-woven over a rust-free frame and designed to live outdoors all year round.
The rattan four-seater cube opens out to seat up to eight but can also pack away to save space. The chairs have a flip-up back and can be folded down over the cushions for easy storage.
The price is normally £1,199 but readers can get the set for only £699. The cube is also available without the footstools for only £549. For more information and to view the full range, call 01296 339925, or visit www.kingshallfurniture.co.uk. This offer ends 31 July 2009.
