The world has largely shut down, but warm weather is still on its way
To get the obvious out of the way, the tail end of winter has been trying. The weather has been cold (as per usual), but obviously, it’s the menace of a global pandemic, social isolation and an ailing design community that’s bumming us out. Warm weather, and with it an end to Covid-19’s omnipresence, can’t come fast enough.
In the meantime, we can still get ready for sunnier days and help out hurting retailers. Below, we’ve rounded up local shops dealing in outdoor furniture and garden accessories that have online sales, free shipping, or just online availability.
Design consultations are still available over the phone and all outdoor furniture collections are on offer for 20 per cent off. It’s another reason for you – and your outdoor space – to look forward to summer, when life (hopefully) returns to normal.
Aside from Gloster, LOLL and Tuuci, Hauser is offering free shipping on orders of $1500 or more. Even with exclusions, there are still plenty of gorgeous options available – we’re especially fond of the Metro III Sling Patio Chaise – plus Hauser is offering 10 per cent off on all outdoor patio furniture with the promo code SPRING10.
Shop online for outdoor staples from Sunbrella and Tuuci, and shop sales for everything from Adirondack chairs to full outdoor sectionals. If you’re eager to cook outdoors, InsideOut also does brisk business in BBQs, including charcoal-fired Webers and ceramic Big Green Eggs.
If you’re eager to deck out your, well, deck, with JdV this year, head to Must Société, where you’ll find the full Jardin MUST collection available online. Plus, orders of more than $300 get 15 per cent off and free standard shipping.
Rewarding patient shoppers, Elte is offering 20 per cent off everything in stock and delivering once it re-opens. Consider the woven Hamilton Collection a reward for good self-isolating behaviour.
In case you’re looking to get some true gardening work done, Lee Valley is offering free shipping on all items (except gift cards) with no minimum purchase, making the tools on clearance that much more attractive a prospect.
Word of warning: With a huge number of outdoor furniture collections available in aluminum and teak, different depths and up to 125 different fabrics, RH will keep you shopping for long time. But if you need help, consultants are available to chat over the phone or online.
Bergo Designs’ robust collection of accessories and decor extends to the great outdoors as well, as does its free shipping for orders of $100 or more. Our favourite outdoor items on offer: Eva Solo’s solar lamps, which feature integrated solar cells that provide up to 20 hours of illumination, and Blomus’ super-modern Planto watering can.
