Focus on form, function, and the future, at Bramblecrest



Bramblecrest enjoyed another great year showcasing the latest outdoor furniture collections at Solex 2023.


With equal focus on form, function, and the future, at Bramblecrest we believe in creating garden furniture for all spaces, styles, and seasons. Since our very beginning in 2000, we have consistently chosen the best materials, for the best reasons. As a result, our ranges combine the complete outdoor living look our customers desire, with sustainable options the environment needs.


Understanding that relaxing outdoors requires the same ease and enjoyment of being indoors, we’ve applied our trusted Bramblecrest standards to the design, comfort and practicality of each sofa, dining, and lounging set. Resulting in seamless transitions between indoor and outdoor living. With the addition of fire pits, accessories and complementary scatter cushions, this latest collection delivers all-round style for the year ahead.



New and Noteworthy


We predict that the industry will continue to experience a move away from purely classic weave options into a wider adoption of aluminium and mixed material furniture. In-line with this growing demand for more contemporary materials and styling, our 2023/4 ranges feature even more options of aluminium finishes, teak touches, and synthetic rope accents.


Both the Vilamoura and Amsterdam ranges have been further developed for the coming year in respect of their incredible popularity last season. Pairing sleek aluminium frames with softer, textured tabletops enables the best of both worlds, and with multifunctional configurations, these ranges offer the versatility we know customers require.



New additions to our Zurich and Lucca ranges, reflect our confidence in outdoor dining and outdoor lounges remaining as aspirational as ever. Zurich dining sets offer a more modern take on garden dining. More formal, yet just as comfortable. Tree-free surfaces are prime for leveraging tablescaping trends, whilst the minimal aesthetic is a nod to ever-popular Scandinavian design. Meanwhile, Lucca is low level lounging at its finest, featuring a chaise profile and oversized cushion components combining considered style with comfort.


Progressive Products


As we become more conscious about our impact on the world around us, we continue to make changes to improve our methods and materials. We design our furniture and accessories with longevity in mind. High quality products that stand the test of time, simultaneously providing confidence to our customers and protection for our planet.


We’ve made great strides on our journey towards sustainability. Our Eco cushion covers, made from yarn spun using recycled plastic bottles, now make up most of our furniture textiles; reducing the vast amount of single-use plastic going into landfill every year.



Our timber furniture is sustainably sourced, and in partnership with Ecologi we plant a tree for every furniture set we sell. With their help we are supporting carbon offset projects and contributing towards a more sustainable environment in the future.


Head of Sales, Tim Pennell says “Our team thoroughly enjoyed speaking with Solex visitors about our new products, new materials, and new ideas, for now and in the future. It was a pleasure to see such a great response to this year’s product collection, and to top it off with winning Best Large Stand 2023, was a real delight. We are already looking forward to Solex 2024.”
