A Gold Award winning, record breaking summer!

Wow – what a summer! According to the Met Office, summer 2018 could rank as one of the 10 hottest summers on record.  We can believe that!

Our pretty roof terrace at the Kings Road showroom is home to Manutti’s Zendo corner garden sofa  – and it’s been receiving plenty of visits! We lost it for a few days however as the garden design team behind a Show Garden at the recent RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show asked if they could borrow it.  We were delighted and, guess what, the garden won a Gold Award!
