To coincide with the August Bank Holiday weekend, premium outdoor kitchen specialist Furniture@Outdoor Living launched its first permanent outdoor kitchen display at Longacres Garden Centre in Bagshot, Surrey.
Located in the outdoor living area by the main entrance of Longacres, the display features a hand-made bespoke timber-framed kitchen in walnut finish with cream detail that is guaranteed weatherproof for 50 years. A matching cream Valoriani wood-fired oven is set on a corner cupboard unit, while a 90cm Beefeater gas-fired barbecue sits within a run of matching cabinets. The kitchen also includes a built-in drinks cooler, quartz and granite worktops and a flush-mounted sink and tap for food preparation.
Furniture@Outdoor Living is a Hampshire-based bespoke outdoor kitchen company that designs and makes every order at its wholly-owned joinery workshop near Portsmouth, with delivery throughout the UK. Having recently successfully exhibited at the Southport Flower Show, this static display is the first of a planned expansion of uniquely designed outdoor kitchens to be situated at premium independent garden centres around the country.
Furniture@Outdoor Living managing director Matt West commented: “With its stunning location near Ascot, Wentworth and Virginia Water, it is no surprise that Longacres, Bagshot is the UK’s number one garden centre in terms of turnover. It is a beautifully managed centre, with really supportive management and staff and we are delighted to launch our first outdoor kitchen display there.
“We are also really encouraged by the amount of genuine interest there is in outdoor kitchens, which is a trend that we firmly believe is set to continue. Working with our appliance partners, we look forward to rolling out our display concepts in other geographically targeted premium independents into 2018.”
