The Rich Brothers garden furniture has landed at Habitat – and we want the elegant lounger
If you’re not familiar with the Rich Brothers, then here’s what you need to know. The landscape designers are not only the youngest ever Chelsea gold medal winners (in 2015), they’re also one half of BBC’s Garden Rescue team.
‘The linear profile and soft, elegant edges that almost blend down into the ground are the design crux of this collection,’ say the Rich Brothers. ‘They feature across dining table, bench, chair and garden lounger.’
There’s also a collection of planters to complement the furniture. The ribbed finish of the Rediad pots adds plenty of textural interest. As well as decking or patios, the planters will help add greenery to even the smallest outside space. We’re thinking balconies, courtyards or even a window ledge.
The trough is plenty big enough to plant herbs or vegetables, too.
‘A favourite material of ours, galvanised metal is mainly associated with agriculture and has a utilitarian, raw look to it, especially as it ages,’ say the Rich Brothers. ‘It’s an extremely tough material and wears nicely within a garden, with a patina that offsets greenery nicely.’
