Take a Seat for Lime Green - The Colour of the Chelsea Flower Show

We’ve just about stopped spinning from our week at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. It was the Show's inaugural autumn appearance, and our first ever Chelsea experience, so we knew it would be special. We were not disappointed!

Guests were fizzing with excitement and the British weather played ball. The whole place was busy and blooming and buzzing with the energy we’ve so missed this last 18 months. For a flavour of the atmosphere, please take a look at my little video clip of some of  my favourite fellow stand-holders.

Bold and Bright: Garden Colour Trends for Fall

Four Outdoor Cushions in patterned fabric of orange, turquoise, lime green and navy blue

At the RHS Summer Shows, our lovely customers chose garden sofas and bean bags in fantastically adaptable Pumice Grey fabrics, or soft soothing Ocean Blue to cultivate an outdoor oasis.

With the changing of the seasons however, the neutrals and the muted hues were brushed away and Chelsea was all about the bold and the brights. Tropical Orange - a summer favourite as an outdoor cushion – was now requested in garden bean bags and loungers. Turquoise also turned heads. It looks exceptional against lush green borders (just look at Lizzie from The Rose Press Garden on her turquoise lounger!) but it’s simply stunning against autumnal shades of red, orange, and gold. I absolutely love it!

However the surprise, even to us, was that a quarter of all our outdoor bean bag requests were for our striking Lime Green prints.

Fresh; vibrant; zesty - this year will not be a winter of hibernation!

Take a look at our full collection of garden furniture and accessories in green and let me know your favourite.

Navy Blue Outdoors and Indoors… with a Colour Pop

Perhaps the Green, the Orange, and the Turquoise, aren’t quite right for you? Customers at Chelsea were also choosing deep Navy Blue for their indoor-outdoor bean chairs – then teaming them with a bold accessory. We particularly loved the addition of a footstool/snack table in orange!

Faux Fur Covers for a Winter Transformation

A snuggly faux fur bean bag in Alaska Fox is the cosiest reading corner for the woman snuggled into it with her pile of books

Our ever clever customers ensured they made the very most of their indoor-outdoor bean bags by adding an extra faux fur cover in snuggly Snow, or sumptuous Alaska Fox. As the nights draw in their bean chair will get a winter makeover, and they’ll get a cosy corner!
