Tom Chambers' major success on return to SOLEX


Tom Chambers has announced outstanding results on their return to SOLEX with orders for outdoor furniture and their brand new range of Covers exceeding all expectations.

Stephen Millington commented: “Retailers loved the all new Prestige Range of Covers in a contemporary two tone grey/black and green/black fabric. This innovative material which is new to the UK market has a water repellent ‘Tom Chambers Rainguard’ specialist coating. The covers are PVC free, extra heavy duty and not only offer thorough protection for garden furniture but also look stylish in any garden or on a patio. The 7 year guarantee gives the re-assurance that the Prestige range is going to give many years of protection."

Response to the special Show Deals was very positive with a good deal of interest shown in the Hetton and Masham wooden furniture ranges, with retailers particularly liking the rocking benches. The range consists of garden benches, rocking chairs and benches, all hand built in Yorkshire by their experienced craftsmen using FSC certified timber.

The furniture designs feature high back rests to add quality and give a supportive and comfortable seating position. Curved seats and front sections give flowing lines and add to the overall appearance of the products. The furniture features heavy-duty coach bolts throughout to give easy to build products and ensure a very stable and secure piece of furniture.

Tom Chambers is a family business with over 50 years’ experience and has an enviable reputation for producing top quality products for the garden market.
