Following on from my post about our garden makeover, Dan is currently laying the concrete plinth for the shed to sit on – he is very excited. I on the other hand cannot get excited about concrete, and would much rather dream about the finished garden and what I will be lounging on in the sunshine.
You may remember back in July when Dan and I visited Barcelona. The hotel we stayed in, (Hotel Brummel), had a beautiful courtyard dining space. With tall plants in black pots, charcoal painted walls and brick floor. The furniture was white, wire framed and seriously cool. I want these. But after a bit of research I discovered that each chair is £234 each – outta my league!
We used to have a white bistro set, two chairs and a little fold up table. But over the past few winters left outside, they had rusted through to a dangerous level. So off to the tip they went. As my garden is tiny, I can’t have large pieces, no wicker arm chairs with cushions or a large wooden table to seat eight (oh the dream). Instead I am looking at small chairs that are practical and stylish and have a hint of the Hotel Brummel cool.
Here is what I have found:
All seriously cool, all at an astronomical cost (for me anyway). So I discovered these. They are perfect! Chuck a sheepskin on the top, and I’ll be set. I can’t wait!
