Summer can't come soon enough for the launch of the Habitat garden furniture collection.
Brothers David and Harry Rich of Rich Landscapes studio have taken the world of gardening by storm since 2013 when their natural-meets-modern design aesthetic won them the title of youngest ever winners of a gold at The Chelsea Flower Show.
This year sees the launch of their first capsule collection of outdoor furniture and accessories curated in collaboration with Habitat.
Known for their natural meets modern aesthetic, David and Harry of Rich Landscapes have played with fluid curves, natural lines and functional ideas to bring you a collection of super stylish yet affordable garden designs.
We caught up with the brothers to hear more about the inspiration behind the designs: 'We both grew up in the Welsh countryside and have always had a strong affiliation with the natural landscape. As a result, connecting people with nature through wild planting and modern design and architecture has been the central ethos of our studio, paring our landscapes right back so they are naturally simple, elegant and functional.It felt an organic match for us to work with Habitat’s design team and their contemporary attitude to design on a project that would bring this concept to life, creating a capsule of affordable designs for the garden that work together as a collection or stand-alone pieces.
You’ll also notice the unusual names of these designs. Being proud Welsh boys at heart we thought it was important to bring some of our native language to the Habitat collection, with names that all relate back to the products original inspiration.'
The range features a stylish selection of modern garden furniture and simple, yet stylish accessories and planters – ideal if you're looking for ideas for small gardens and garden patios.
