Stepping back in time with Hartman at the Chelsea Flower Show

2013 is a special year for The RHS Chelsea Flower Show it is their centenary celebration, who can believe 99 flower shows have gone before? Time flies when you?re having fun.

Hartman are proud to be exhibiting for the fifth year at the world?s most prestigious flower show.

The show has become an important venue for emerging trends in gardening and a significant date in the Hartman diary to showcase new collections.?? This year is no exception and we are really excited to be presenting our brand new furniture collection in collaboration with the Royal Botanic Garden, Kew.

Influenced by the intricate metal work of the Temperate House the furniture designs reflect the structural form of the world?s largest Victorian glasshouse, and to further enhance the theme the Hartman staff will be dressing in Victorian period costume to celebrate Chelsea?s 100th birthday.

To evoke the spirit of the Victorian era the stand will be laid with weathered paving culminating in a paving circle beneath the pavilion to enhance its palatial design.? A living wall will adorn the rear of the stand with a gently curving lawn to envelope the pavilion with planting to the rear that evokes the flora and fauna of the Temperate House.

The stand will be dressed with the entire Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew furniture collection comprising a four and six seat dining set, a deep seated sofa bench, a comfortable lounger, lanterns and to really embrace the spirit of the Temperate House a free standing pavilion.

The collection is cast from strong aluminium, it has the substantial presence of classic garden furniture with elegant curves interlaced with vertical linesthat highlight the intricate detailed ceiling and ornate walkways that can be viewed within the Temperate House.
