We were recently lucky enough to have shipped a set of Barlow Tyrie Dune Daybeds to one of our customers in the British Virgin Islands.
The Barlow Tyrie Dune Daybed is a desirable piece of garden furniture in anybody's language. If you are lucky enough to experience a few rays of sunshine in your day, wherever you are in our world, it's standing only increases.
This is why we should not have been surprised when we were contacted by potential customers in the Virgin Islands. It's a long way from Birmingham and very much in the middle of an ocean or two but that wasn't going to step in our way.
Dan Saul, GardenSite General Manager arranged for the swatches to be sent and diligently worked through the shipping, VAT, onward delivery and costings minefield.
Our partners at Barlow Tyrie headquarters are no strangers to shipping worldwide so their expertise was also invaluable.
The Dune Daybeds have now arrived safely at Enighed, St. John, British Virgin Islands and are in use complete with the desired fabrics and scatter cushions. If you are lucky enough to be in this part of the world we seem to have lost Dan.....?
With only a few months' training under her belt, GardenSite's own Flori Bosnigeanu took part in this year's Great Birmingham Run, raising over £500 for the city's Children's Hospital.
