Pacific Lifestyle’s Nigel Lawrence took time out from taking orders on Thursday morning to take the Solex Sun through the highlights of their ranges for 2020.
We started with their extensive range of garden furniture covers, Aerocover. It is a dutch brand that is sold in 40 countries with 100 plus size options. The fabric is solution dyed, rip proof and breathable with a 5 year guarantee. “That’s why the return rate is only 0.2%, explained Nigel. “Aerocover is one range to suit all products and the display comes with a consumer video which makes it an ideal choice for retailers.”
Pacific have extended their range of Platinum Brand 2 tilt system parasols, with built in LED challenger glow rechargeable lighting, available in 3m square, 3.5m round and 4m x 3m rectangular sizes. “A key feature of our parasols is the rectangular ribs and they are very popular when sold with our granite bases,” said Nigel.
Their Cosi gas fire pits are a range that will light up any garden centre out doorliving depart ment. They are contemporary styles and range in size from floor standing 69cm Cosicubes to portable Cosisoops which can be kept on a table in the garden or taken on trips away from home. Nigel said: “A key feature of all Cosi fire pits is that the gas bottle is hidden on all models.”
Pacific Lifestyle are at the forefront of the increase in shade sail sales with their range of Nesling sails along with all the fittings needed to make them a feature of any garden. “The lack of specific fittings such as turnbuckles and anchor eyebolts has meant the adoption of sail shade in the UK has lagged behind the rest of Europe. This complete range solves that problems and we now expect sales to soar.”
Providing a point of difference in contemporary modern garden furniture, Pacific Lifestyle’s new Honolulu range from Vietnam features FSC acacia wood and twisted polystring wich has the look and feel of string but the strength of rope. “We’ve had great interest in our new ranges but also continued strength in orders for traditional weave sofa and dining sets. Our dining sets are particularly popular because of the gas pump adjustable table system which makes raising and lowering of the table such a delight for customers.”
