A Warm Welcome to Our New Boxing Hares...

A Warm Welcome to Our New Boxing Hares... 

Whilst GFC were at the Chelsea Flower Show, there is no doubt that there were many other sculptures and stands which caught our eye. However, it was the striking boxing Hares crafted by ‘Steel Sculptures’ that really won us over! Its powerful stature and incredible detail made it hard to resist; so, now we are going to include it in our wide range of products! In order to welcome our newest additions to the GFC family, here is a little introduction and background for the inspiration behind the magnificent boxing Hares!

Background...

It is argued that the brown Hare was introduced by the Romans to Britain, or even earlier between the 5th to the 3rd centuries BC. However, it is interesting to note that the Hare could have been treated with more care than other animals, as studies have found their bodies were buried without being slaughtered. This demonstrates how valued the Hare was within society, as they were regarded to be too special to consume. Fundamentally, brown hares are notoriously known to have an enthusiastic nature, and as such they channel this energy through fighting, or boxing as we might recognise, with each other. This is predominantly done within the mating March month which sees them leap around the air and box with each other. This ultimately coins the nickname ‘Mad March Hares’ due to this erratic behaviour. The Hare is an exceptional animal, with their strong exterior and passion to survive any threat that may challenge them. Unfortunately, the sightings of hares have decreased over the years and are now rarely seen in open spaces.

Inspiration...

In an artistic light, hares are popularly used to portray different emotions. Due to their prominent stature, they provide an amazing scale for artists and sculptors to illustrate their artistic vision. The image of boxing hares has been used in a variety of paintings and sculptures for centuries due to their cultural history in literature, art, music, religion and fairy tales as well as media and advertising. The Hare itself has a variety of representations within myths and folklore which inspires many artworks and creative media. For instance, the Hare is widely considered to be sensitive and ambitious, with the added implications of being fit and full of virtue. On the other hand, the Hare does possess an element of greed and selfishness, and in some cases even deception and dishonesty. But, by having this mixture of qualities, it is what makes the Hare a favourited animal for artists, writers and creative designers to use within their work.

With our new boxing Hares’ sculpture, ingeniously crafted by Paul Richardson, they are an amazing example of how the brown Hare is used in an artistically humours point of view. These hares are fitted with comical boxing gloves and expressions, with their dominating physique dressed in boxing shorts and shoes. As well as this, the hares are encased within a large boxing ring, highlighting the similarity to a real-life boxing match scenario. Additionally, the whole presentation of the sculpture is a gesture towards our outrageous human nature of quarrelling with world leaders and the political division this causes. Paul’s ingenuity to demonstrate this political conflict is portrayed through the boxing belts on the hares, with the word ‘hare’ written in English to represent the U.S.A on one, and the other written in Russian. The subtlety of this detail is what makes the sculpture so unique and appealing for us to showcase within our showroom!

Famous Faces...

As you may well know, the Chelsea Flower Show is a place where many celebrities and famous faces gather to view all the sculptures and gardens on display. And it seems that at the show, Paul’s boxing hares certainly received a lot of star-studded attention! Dave Meyers from the Hairy Bikers made a great impression of the boxing hares with a great fighting face which would be hard to beat! There were also visits from broadcaster Ben Fogle, athlete Linford Christie and young-up-coming boxer Jordan Thompson!

So, why not come down to our showroom where you can see the boxing hares for yourself! Be sure to tag us in our socials and remember to give us your best boxing face!

 

 

 

 

 

Our RHS Chelsea Flower Show Highlights...

Well, it is safe to say that this year’s Chelsea Flower Show was a massive success for us and all who were involved! From fabulous flourishes to tasty treats, it has been a beautiful way to welcome the autumnal season for us all. If you saw our last post, you can see how much work and effort went into producing our fantastic GFC stand for you all to visit in the last few days of the gorgeous September sunshine! So now that the show has come to an end, here is a rundown of what happened with our week at Chelsea!

Our Best Sellers

Thanks to Jonny and the team, our best products were displayed beautifully for you all to view and visit! It goes without saying that our Kangaroo and Koala Chairs have been the hot topic of conversation on our stand and back in our showroom. As you can see, it seems that many visitors were very comfortable when trying them out! As well as our bestselling Kangaroo and Koala chairs, our Life range also had a lot of popular attention, particularly with our Soho and Timber sets! Many visitors were stricken by the beautiful charcoal finish on the aluminium frame, as well as the sleek engineering that makes this one of our most modern and stylish ranges.

What is more, our magnificent Madrid Corner Sofa Set, which was nestled under our marvellous Galaxy Gazebo, also became extremely popular with many visitors on the stand. With the contrasting gazebo wall panel engraved with a delicate leaf pattern made especially for Chelsea, it became one of the most sought-after products of the show! Additionally, our Mustique Dining Set had many watchful eyes on our stand, with its stylish teak frame and slick stone table taking a lot of attention throughout the show.

However, it is our stunning Pergolux gazebo that not only made its Chelsea debut, but it was the first time we have had it on display at any of our shows! With our brand-new leaflets flying off the stand, it was a huge thrill to showcase our Pergolux Range in person with you all for the first time at Chelsea!

Famous Faces and Special Guests

As many of you know, the Chelsea Flower Show is notorious for celebrities to come and mix with the crowds to see the spectacular gardens and stands on display. In fact, at the GFC stand, we had a fair few famous faces come to visit, as well as having a few snapshots of our fantastic furniture! TV Presenter Nicki Chapman, who you might know from presenting the Chelsea Flower Show on the BBC, came to our stand and had a nice sit down in our Fiji Apple Day Bed! What is more, singer Alexandra Burke paid us a visit and had a friendly chat with our amazing staff on the stand. And it would not be the Chelsea Flower Show without having a visit from some Chelsea Pensioners who you can probably tell really liked our Kangaroo Chairs!

Our Brilliant Staff

It is needless to say that our success at Chelsea would not have been possible without our fabulous staff working tirelessly each day to make your experience with us one to remember. Each morning without fail, they would arrive at our stand bright and early, passing the huge queues of eager visitors ready to take a look at all the fantastic stands and gardens on display. Through meeting and speaking to thousands of people every day about our fabulous range of products, for Jon, Chris, Annetta, Nathalie and Oliver, it was an exceptional experience that they will never forget!

We hope you all had a chance to visit us at the Chelsea Flower Show this year, even though it was a little later than expected! If you have any pictures of you visiting our stand, don’t forget to tag us to share your experience!

Until next year Chelsea!

GFC At The RHS Chelsea Flower Show...

For the first time in 108 years, the RHS Chelsea Flower Show is to be held in September due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. However, it is a notion welcomed by many attending the show this year as it is a chance to showcase a variety of plants and produce that are prevalent within the autumnal months! Not only will the show be exhibiting some of the finest garden displays to welcome the autumnal season, but it will also be a celebration of the NHS, demonstrated through a beautiful array of show gardens! Additionally, there will be a couple of new show gardens to view this year, with the balcony and container gardens making their first appearance to showcase the developing landscape of city living.

With GFC, it is also a chance for us to celebrate our history and origin of the company. This year, we have adapted our stand to commemorate the history of our place of residence. Once a milking parlour for over 70 years, it was transformed to become our showroom where thousands of people come to view our exceptional products all year round. Our plants, which we have carefully selected, are going to be beautifully presented within milk churns and milking instruments to represent the original function of our now famous showroom! We are also going to be intertwining our renowned furniture within our stand through our Fiji weave wall panels, complimented by our living wall ivy to bring a piece of GFC to Chelsea! It goes without saying that our showroom is packed full of history which we are excited to demonstrate with you all within our stand!

However, you may be wondering how we are going to get our stand looking spotless and sparkling for you all to enjoy at Chelsea! Well, our brilliant installations team at GFC have given us exclusive access to the stand construction which they have been building throughout the days running up to the main event. So, let us have a look at the day-by-day transformation of the GFC stand!

DAY 1

Jonny and his brilliant team arrive the week before with our fantastic products ready to be built and displayed. As you can see, it is going to be a big job for this patch of mud and grass to be transformed to become our amazing stand when we welcome all our visitors! 

And so, the work begins! The team starts to unload the truck to get underway with laying the foundations for our stand. It is going to be a lot of work, but the results will be worth it in the end!

DAY 2

And in true British style, the rain has begun! However, a little bit of wet weather does not stop the team from getting the important work done! Now that the foundations are in place, it is time for the floor decking to cover the mud and rain as our stand starts to take shape!

Our celebrated products are now starting to be unpacked and built to make their Chelsea debut! But after a bit of a miserable (and wet) day, you can see the stand is coming together beautifully! Even though there is a bit more work to do, it is satisfying to see the great progress the team are making (even if their socks might be a bit damp)!

DAY 3

With the floor almost complete, the team get to work on building our brilliant products for the stand! Here, you can see our Pergolux Garden Room with motorised roof is under construction and will certainly take centre stage! Our renowned Galaxy Gazebos have also started to take shape, with our highly sought-after Fiji and Meteor products beginning to be placed around the stand.

At the end of Day 3, you can see how hard the team have worked to transform our stand from a wet patch of mud and grass to a brilliant display of our magnificent products ready for you all to enjoy! There is still a long way to go, but the progress is second to none! 

DAY 4

Our Fiji wall panels are now in place with our brand-new sign! Soon they will be filled with our fabulous selection of plants for you all to see! Not only will our wall panels be placed around the stand to display our beautiful flowers, but it will also be complementing our fantastic range of rattan furniture!

As the day draws to a close, we can see the furniture is starting to be assembled and it is looking fantastic! The Fiji Apple Day Bed and Fiji Range will be making their mark on the stand, as well as our cosy Kangaroo and Koala chairs making their return with some brand-new colours!

DAY 5

With the show creeping around the corner, the stand is coming together wonderfully! Our Pergolux Gazebo has had the glass doors fitted, with our Paris Sofa suite taking residence underneath the LED motorised roof! If you notice in the corner, you can make out our milking instruments which are starting to be assembled ready for the plants to arrive.

Our stand has completely transformed in a matter of days! All our products are now being positioned and finalised to make sure you can all see what GFC has to offer! As well as our Rattan furniture range, we are going to be displaying our LIFE range including our Soho Corner Lounge Unit which is ready to be unwrapped very soon!

 

DAY 6

As the team continue to work hard on the stand construction, the planters from ‘Sadie May Studios’ have now arrived to start preparing the stand with our beautiful selection of plants! The wall ivy and the Fiji wall panels look exquisite next to our fabulous sign and are certainly going to be even more sublime in person!

And what is more, our Galaxy Gazebo has been fitted with a unique wall panel made just for Chelsea! The sophisticated and clean-cut panel is engraved with an elegant leaf pattern to complete our Gazebo for the show, with our Madrid Lounge Set residing underneath. With the final preparations underway, it is soon time to unveil our stand to the public in a matter of days!

DAY 7

With the show only a day away, our stand is now being prepped with the final touches! Our furniture looks fabulous next to our newly planted milk churns and milking instruments to showcase our GFC history! What is more, our stunning Pergolux and Galaxy Gazebo are now complete for the opening of the show!

It goes without saying that our stand has transformed into a magnificent display of our staple products and become a beautiful representation of our history. The team has worked tirelessly to make our Chelsea return, and what a magnificent job they have done to ensure our return is bigger than ever before!

SHOW DAY!

And just like magic, the stand is ready and raring to go for you all to visit! It is remarkable how our team have managed to renovate just a patch of mud into an incredible display of all our products!

As you can see, we have already had some excited first visitors taking a seat in our fabulous Kangaroo Chairs, as well as a couple of dazzling disco dancers posing in front of our magnificent plant display! It is safe to say that GFC has arrived at the Chelsea Flower Show in tremendous style!

Our Plant Selection...

This year with the show taking place in the September, many stands and gardens have had to adapt their plant selection to fit in with the autumnal season. So, here is a run-down of all our plants that are going to be making an appearance in our display!

Trees:

Betula Utilis Jacqumontii

Originating from the Himalayas, this silver birch tree will be making a special appearance to our selection of plants for the show. The white bark has a delicate glistening exterior, as well as its striking dark oval green leaves making it an important addition to our stand!

Shrubs:

Hydrangea Paniculata Limelight 

Commonly present in China and Japan, the Hydrangea Paniculata Limelight can thrive throughout the year, even in the winter months! With the show now taking place in September, it is a chance to showcase certain plants that are capable to survive the colder weather.

Viburnum Tinus

A popular choice for hedging, the Viburnum Tinus is a beautiful plant that flourishes with pink and white flowers, along with a dark black fruit which can be made into jam!

Prunus Ceracifera Nigra

Recognised as ‘Black Cherry Plum’, this elegant plant is popular for its rich shrubbery and striking black stems. Starting off with a delicate pink blossom in the spring, it begins to transition into a bronze shade for the autumnal months.

Perennials:

Salvia Love and Wishes

From May to October, this stunning foliage is perfect to keep the colder months colourful! The dark stems and rich purple flowers are pleasing to look at, with the additional advantage of being able to grow in containers perfect for your patio!  

Nepeta Six Hills Giant 

Part of the Catmint family, Nepeta Six Hills Giant is a beautifully aromatic herb that is perfect for summer. Its elusive purple pigment attracts many wildlife and contains a pungent lemony scent.

Rosmarinus Prostrates

Native in the Mediterranean, prostrate rosemary is a very easy herb to look after in any garden setting. In the spring and summer, the shrub grows small blue/purple flowers which can be used in your cooking! Preferably grown in the autumn months, it is a perfect plant to showcase at this year’s show!  

Hedera Helix

Widely recognised as English Ivory, Hendra Helix is fast-growing evergreen which is commonly used as a climbing vine. Once established on your fence, the climbing vine can grow up to 80 feet!

Sedum Purple Emperor 

Grown for its colourful foliage, the ‘Purple Emperor’ is a striking perennial made up of pink/brown flowers and luscious stems. As the flowers fade in the autumn months, the foliage will last throughout the winter and keep pollinators attracted!

Heuchera Obsidian  

Native to North America, this perennial tends to grow with polished burgundy/black leaves which become darker with age. In the summer, their creamy white flowers begin to blossom which compliments the other foliage beautifully. They flourish within the shade, so it is perfect for those rainy autumn days! 

Heucherella Sweet Tea

More of a compact perennial, Heucherella Sweet Tea is formed of delicate burnt orange leaves which deepen towards the summer season. In the spring and early summer, the leaves are complimented with small white flowers along the stems.

Echinacea White Swan

This upright perennial is formed with strong stems and striking white daisy-like flowers. Its orange-green centre makes this plant marvellous to look at, as well as providing a powerful nectar for pollinators!

Echinacea Green Jewel

This herbaceous perennial is grown with a distinctive green centre and drooping petals which are popular with butterflies! Flourishing in the summer, these flowers can survive through to the autumn to keep your garden full of colour in the darker months!

Rudbeckia Prairie Glow

Commonly known as ‘black-eyed-susans’, this striking burnt orange flower is perfect for the autumn season. The contrasting yellow tips slightly curve to form a stunning narrowed disk allowing the shape and colours of this flower to be perfect for any garden!

Agapanthus Moonlight Star

Noticeable for its dark violet flowers, this evergreen perennial is a beautiful addition to our stand to showcase the plants that are prominent in the autumn season. These are usually grown within large containers which can ultimately be moved during the winter months, so they stay fresh all year round!

Stipa Pony Tails

More commonly known as ‘Mexican Feathers Grass’, these are decorated with a silver/green flower which makes this perennial a very attractive version of grass! These are a stunning addition to any foliage or floral display to add some volume to your garden!

Carex Frosted Curls

This evergreen perennial is commonly seen within the grasses of New Zealand and is favoured for its unique foliage. The slender glistening leaves allows this plant to create a ‘mop-head’ shape and are also a great way to add a foundation to your display!

Verbena Bonariensis

This fragrant perennial is a stunning shade of lavender purple which blooms from mid-summer to the beginning of winter. Significantly, this perennial reproduces through seeds and self-seeds. In American horticulture, it is also known as ‘Purpletop’ and ‘South American Vervain’.

Liriope Muscari

Deriving from East Asia, the Liriope muscari is a grass-like evergreen foliage which produces lavender/purple flowers and seeded berries in the autumnal months. By being extremely tolerable of drought, it is fitting to place these under any trees and shrubs and especially thrives in well-drained soil in restricted or complete shade! 

Molinia Karl Forester

Regularly found by marshlands and riverbanks, Molinia Karl Forester is a delicate grass-like plant which can thrive in many weather conditions. As we are approaching the autumnal season, this perennial will be transforming into a soft golden brown for our display! 

We are exceptionally excited and thrilled to be able to see you all again at the Chelsea Flower Show, and especially eager to bring the history of GFC to our stand! Please share your Chelsea experience with us on our socials and make sure to tag us when visiting our incredible stand!

Help us support a very worthy cause for our first ever employee!

We are proud to be sponsoring a Coast to Coast Triathlon being done for the charity Muscular Dystrophy UK by our very first employee from way back in 1997 and would love you to help support this cause as well.

Sam Taylor was originally employed by us during his summer holidays when he was at school and has since gone on to further a successful career with the construction equipment giant JCB Ltd.

Three years ago Sam’s son, Will, was diagnosed with the severe muscle wasting condition Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and although Will is now seven there is still no cure or treatment for the condition.

where there's a will there's a way for muscular dystrophy uk

This has led to Sam, his wife Sue and a team of friends to become active fundraisers for the charity Muscular Dystrophy UK.

This well-known charity was founded in 1959 to lead the fight against muscle wasting conditions. Since then they have been leading the drive for faster access to more than 60 rare muscle weakening and wasting conditions for more than 70,000 children and adults across the UK.

muscular dystrophy uk

As part of the 2017 fundraising effort Sam sent a speculative email to Jon Haimes, Director at The Garden Furniture Centre, who employed him around 20 years ago asking for support and was delighted when Jon replied offering to be a sponsor for the forthcoming triathlon.

Sam said, “we were delighted when GFC offered to be one of our kit sponsors. Jon has made a very kind donation, which will be shared equally between the set up costs for the triathlon, and a donation to Muscular Dystrophy UK.”

Jon said, “even though it was so many moons ago we remember Sam and are proud to be able to contribute to such a worthy cause.”

The Triathlon will take place on 1st and 2nd September this year and the Coast to Coast team will each cycle 115 miles from Whitby to Windermere, swim 1 mile across Lake Windermere, and then run 26 miles from Lakeside to Walney Island.

You can pledge your support today through the Coast to Coast Just Giving Page.

Marine Grade Furniture a success in Dubai …

The Dubai International Boat Show, (DIBS) really is a true spectacle.

2017 was our first year exhibiting at the event and it certainly won’t be our last. To be honest we knew we were taking a bit of a risk as a UK retailer booking an event overseas but our Luxor Marine Grade Furniture has done really well at both the Southampton and London Boat Shows and when you consider that DIBS is the biggest boat show in the world we thought it was a calculated risk.

A few show highlights for you …


highlights Dubai international Boat Show



First and foremost of course it’s all about the boats at DIBS and this year certainly did not disappoint – the Khaleej Times summed it up perfectly in their article on the highlights from the show in 2017 when the wrote …

"Surrounded by more than 400 boats, many of which look like they have cruised right out of the set of a James Bond movie.”



Obviously, the Super Yachts somewhat stole the show as they’re impossible to ignore towering over everything else and asserting their authority in general.

And the super yacht that seemed to steal the show in 2017 has to be the 77m Silver Fast by Silver Yachts.


However, there were plenty of other things to see and do at the event and we strongly recommend you look at the Dubai International Boat Show website to see the sort of thing on offer if you’re planning a trip next year.

One of our personal little favourites was the amazingly co-ordinated light show we happened to stumble across when down by the beach one evening – as they say, sometimes it really is the little things!


Selling Marine Grade Furniture by the container load!


Brand New Pienza Outdoor Range


Our Luxor Range provided the focus of our exhibit at DIBS – as it also does at the UK boat shows - largely because it is so undeniably modern, contemporary and eye catching.

It is also made from marine grade synthetic rattan and leather meaning it lends itself perfectly for use on sea faring craft of all shapes and sizes.

And the audience in Dubai took to it like fish take to water!

In fact, whereas in the UK we mainly take individual orders of our marine grade furniture the customers in Dubai were that taken with it they were ordering whole container loads of it – absolutely fine by us, of course!

This combined with some great publicity from the show organisers themselves combined to make DIBS our most successful trade show so far in the four years we’ve been doing them.

The reaction from our Events Manager, Grant Horsfield, in the video below says it all really …

Moasure App - it’s made to measure …

Many of you may, at this time of year, be thinking about giving the garden a bit of a makeover this year?

And, in today’s online age, the obvious place to start having a look at the options available to you are the many and varied internet shopping sites out there such as ours.

Don’t worry we’re not about to bombard you with sales offers and jargon – in actual fact all we want to do is help you solve a problem common to many shoppers in our niche.

Just how big is your garden?


Now, this may seem like a bit of a silly question but in actual fact you’d be surprised at just how many people we speak to who are interested in buying a particular item of furniture and then suddenly ask themselves the question …

“Will this actually fit in my garden?”


Well, if you’ve got an iPhone we can solve this problem for you in an instant …

Moasure – the future of measuring made easy …


Moasure is a clever little app developed to allow iPhone users to measure distances and angles quickly and accurately by turning their phone itself into a measuring device.

Watch the video here …


As you can see, it really could not be simpler and makes perfect sense.

So, before you visit that furniture showroom simply flick Moasure on and measure the room or garden space that the furniture’s intended for and then repeat the same process with the furniture itself.

Or, if you’re internet shopping, any respectable online store will have provided the specifications of the item for you so you can compare these to the Moasure results on your phone and make an informed decision based on these without having to guess and hope.

Obviously, there are hundreds of other applications here as well and at just £1.49 for a download it really is a no-brainer.

Why not download Moasure and give it a try.
