After years of nagging my hubbie he's finally got around to laying a patio for me. We've had the tiles for ages and now its finished and looking lovely. I just had to buy some garden furniture to go with it and the one I chose was Humber Teak 17 Piece Grade A Teak Outdoor Dining Set.
The reason I chose this was because we have a large family and they all like to pop in and have barbacue's or lunch and often come and sit in my garden.
If they have a day off they come round and we often get together at the weekends and sit in the garden and watch the grandchildren play.Infact I see them all more now they have left home than when I did when they lived here.
Now this isn't an everyday item and the price is quite expensive. I managed to get it for £599.99 from a local gardening centre which specialises in garden furniture. Its a bit like House of Wood, but a local business. You can also get it from Amazon at £699.99 but you have to pay extra for delivery.
What you get for your money is a large 8ft wooden table, 8 wooden chairs, 8 cushions to fit on your chairs and the wood is teak which is very durable for outside use.
The table is 6ft when not folded out, but there is a leaf in the middle that folds out, you pull the sides of the table and lift the leaf in the middle to extend the table for more room.
In the middle of the table is a place where you can put a huge umberella for shade but you have to buy this seperately.
The chairs are teak as well and have a lovely design with dark green removable cushions which can be taken inside if the weather gets bad, the chairs stack nicely into each other so they don't ake up a lot of room in the garage if the weather is bad. Mine just looks like the picture above but has green cushions on it.
I love the table and chairs for the new patio I have just had built as it sets it off nicely and there is room for all of us to sit down and have a meal outside.
It is something I have had to save up for, for a long time as I think patio garden furniture is quite expensive, but I have had plastic garden furniture before and it isn't very durable easpecially when the children start climbing on it, the chairs seem to break easily.
This is a stylish, well made teak garen furniture set, its solid and of a good design so i'm sure it will withstand the grandchildren climbing on it and us lot eating off it.
I'm quite made up as it all came together as the weather became nice, so now I can sit outside with the laptop and write my reviews.
The set comprises a 1.8 to 2.4 metre Extension Table which extends by way of a Butterfly Leaf in the centre. 8 Solid Stacking Chairs & 8 Cushions in Dark Green. The centre of the Butterfly Leaf has a hole for a parasol and comes with a brass ferrule for when a parasol is not in use.
