Many Garden Trading fans [a practical and stylish brand with an emphasis on everyday useful items] including myself before researching this feature – would not have realised that its founder Jon Holloway has a long career in designing and developing products for the likes of John Lewis, Habitat, Conran, Heal’s and in the US – Restoration Hardware, Crate & Barrel and Pottery Barn to name a few.
It is no surprise then with a decade of designing homeware that is ingrained in our design landscape that Garden Trading’s signature enamel and powder coated household items in colours like ‘clay’, ‘chalk’ and ‘shutter blue’ are already garnering future classic status.
You may have seen the quietly beautiful products at major department stores like John Lewis and Debenhams and at stylish local garden centres. That maddeningly covetable dustpan and brush – or that Farrow and Ball coloured clothes drier you convinced yourself would transform your laundry room – was probably made by Garden Trading.
Here is my pick of 10 affordable and high quality products for Summer living from the brand that will stand the test of time. Click on the images to take you through to the product and get 10% off all products with the code WELCOME at checkout.
