Keter Atlanta

For Romantic Moments

Stylish and durable, reliable and comfortable, this wonderful balcony set is a dream come true. Made of weather resistant material, it won't fade in the sun. It won't rust in the rain, either, as all its parts are non-metal, including bolts, to avoid rust stains on your clothes and pillows. Thanks to its elaborate design and premium-quality materials used, the set will look like new for ages with minimum maintenance required (just wipe it clean from time to time). To make the armchairs as cosy as possible, they come with thick cushions adding a light accent that makes the furniture look elegant and expensive. The chairs have reclining backs for the most comfortable lounging. This set comprising two chairs and a side table is an excellent choice for a couple. It is a wonderful balcony set, occupying little space and allowing you to enjoy your morning coffee.

One of the secrets of maintaining a perfect garden is by keeping the lawn neat, tidy, and healthy. With an efficient electric lawn mower and a smart sprinkler, it won't be a hard task to do.

VonHaus 22/068

Stylish and Compact

This vibrantly-coloured VonHaus 22/068 patio set that includes a round table with a tempered glass top and two high-backed chairs is a good value for the price. All pieces feature reliable powder-coated steel frames; seats and back rests are made from durable close-weave textoline fabric that is easy to wipe clean. By the way, there are three colour options available (blue, black, and green), so you can choose the one to your liking to enhance your patio. The chairs come ready-assembled and, when not in use, they can be folded flat to occupy minimum space in your garage or shed. As for the table, the assembly is a piece of cake. All in all, it is a wonderful set to brighten up your patio, bring the desired comfort, and create a perfect place for enjoying your morning coffee or evening tea.

When the summer is over, it gets too cold to spend long hours outside. To extend your outdoor rest, we recommend getting a patio heater. It will make your veranda a welcome place to sit and read and chat all year round.
