There was a time when entertaining outside meant firing up a modest garden barbecue, but that's all going to change with the introduction of a fabulous range of outdoor kitchens from those Aussie BBQ specialists, Beefeater.
Barlow Tyrie is a brand which is synonymous with high quality design and manufacture using only the finest materials. This insistence on 'only the best' has now been recognized by their Layout range of garden furniture becoming a prestigious Red Dot award winner.
With a 65 year history, the annual Red Dot awards appraise outstanding products in 49 categories in search of great design and outstanding innovation.
Judged by an international jury, the Red Dot is a highly sought after seal of approval for furniture that significantly sets itself apart from the competition thanks to design excellence.
Barlow Tyrie's Layout collection is the work of renowned designers Andrew Jones and Nathalie de Leval and consists of an impressive selection of contemporary outdoor modular furniture that's practical and looks fabulous.
Each piece is suitable for leisure or entertaining space and expertly crafted from powder coated marine grade stainless steel which features deep comfortable cushioning and is upholstered with Sunbrella and Rain fabric in a choice of colours, both are waterproof and easy to clean, perfect for an outdoor location where their durability and minimal maintenance will be most appreciated.
Modular furniture allows you to choose your own seating arrangements, adding more and variously styled pieces to form a configuration that most suits the particular surroundings, filing any outside area with comfort and elegance.
Scatter cushions in a huge selection of colours, ottomans, loungers, side and dining tables complete this marvellous collection that should encourage everyone to make the most of their outdoor space.
