Remarkably Classic. Oak Lattice Bench

It appears to be straight out of a book. With its cast iron frame and slats made of wood in the familiar curved form this bench is so comfortable – one doesn’t even need a pad or cushion to sit on it. The frame comes from a foundry in Lorraine which has been manufacturing garden furniture for more than 150 years. A joiner’s shop in northern Germany supplies us with the solid oak slats – the wood coming from a nearby forest.

For Your Summer Aperitifs. Steel Garden Drinks Bar

Steel Garden Drinks Bar

Made by the French firm of Fermob this functional yet stylish 'side-table' is designed to hold (wine) bottles in the lower section and cutlery, glasses etc. in the upper section. Both sections have surrounding guard railings. And another feature that improves on the usual 'drinks tray' – this one has a carrier handle at the top, so you can always have one hand free on the way from house to garden. The steel frame has been given a special cataphoretic dip treatment to give added rust-protection – particularly at the welded joints.

Outdoors Or Indoors. Solid Aluminium

Small Aluminium Wall Lamp

It is heavy enough and quite robust – with its protective cage this lamp is modeled on similar types which were originally designed to brighten up ships’ quarters and other damp rooms, let’s say around a harbour. Nowadays we recommend you mount it near your doorstep or as a basement or cellar light. The aluminium light may be used as wall or ceiling light, just as it suits you.

For a Natural Garden. Elevated Gabion Flower Bed

Elevated Gabion Flowerbed

It is as uncomplicated to set up and as durable as any other elevated flower bed. Once assembled, this raised garden bed will grow beautifully into the garden landscape, when, for example, grass and blossoming wild flowers climb up on the steel grilles. Each grille is made of the same zinc-aluminum covered steel. The segments can be easily put together without the help of tools; with combining hooks of the same material, they are brought into shape and placed on the soil – an anchor is not required. With regard to the choice of filling materials there are no limitations.

For Summer Travels. Panama Hat

Panama Hat

‘Panama’ is of course a misnomer – both the raw materials (Toquilla palm fibres in a very fine weave), the work processes, and the hat-makers themselves come from Southern Ecuador. The hats first attracted world-wide attention when they were worn by the construction workers on the Panama Canal. There’s only one firm left that really knows how to make Panama hats of this quality – the whole process, ending in the shaping, is by hand and takes many days.

Each batch will look different and change with time – forming a patina. The bag's lining is of pure linen. When rolled up the bag measures only 27 x 24 x 11 centimetres, and when rolled out it provides enough room for shower gel, shampoo and other necessities.

For a Quick Cooling. Stainless Steel Garden Shower

Stainless Steel Garden Shower

Made in France, this garden shower, with its simple, elegant lines, hardly betrays at first glance how much care and attention has been lavished on choice of materials and finish. ‘Simple’ in the cast-and-carry sense it certainly is not. The pipe is of 1.5-mm. thick solid stainless steel – and, needless to say, rust-proof, as are the joints (made of polished brass) and the chromed brass shower-head with its direction-adjustable ball joint. The water is turned on and off by a brass tap at hip height and supplied via a garden hose.

Ready-sharpened. Scythe with Tubular Steel Handle

Scythe with Tubular Steel Handle

Demeter’s garden tool is coming back into its own now that so many people prefer a naturally mown meadow to the more artificial close-shorn garden lawn. The shape and mode of production of quality scythes have hardly changed at all in the last two centuries. A scythe has to be made of special steel requiring 20 ‘cold’ and 12 ‘hot’ (over 1000 °C) processes. The handle – this being a concession to modernity – is made of tubular steel rather than wood for longer life – and, above all, because it’s much lighter.
