Introducing the Sunbrella range of furniture

When looking at the various options for furniture on Desser, you’ll find a good variety of natural rattan furniture. But as well as our wicker selection, we also have Sunbrella outdoor furniture. This is something that you may not be familiar with but if you are looking for stylish outdoor furniture, it’s a range worth considering. All of our outdoor fabric furniture such as the Aruba range is made from the Sunbrella fabric which contains weatherproof material, allowing you to leave your garden patio furniture outside all year round.

Stylish and functional

During the summertime, you will almost certainly be tempted to spend some time in your garden. This could be to enjoy the morning sun or to dine al fresco.

Like all of our outdoor furniture, Sunbrella is specifically designed for outdoor use. Whether you’ll be sitting on your own, having a meal with your family, or even inviting people around for a party, items from this range will turn your garden into a relaxing space which can allow you to enjoy the beauty of your garden.

Not only this, but some of our outdoor fabric furniture also comes with a fire pit set, allowing you to entertain and even cook on those colder nights throughout the Autumn and Winter months.

Comfortable

Like the furniture in your home, your choice of outdoor patio furniture needs to be comfortable. That means as well as a strong structure, you want soft, supportive cushions both on the base of the seat and the back.

Without the right cushions, it can feel too hard on your backside but with Sunbrella, these seats provide the same level of comfort that you can expect to find on any indoor furniture.

Garden Patio Furniture Made to Last

We make sure that every part of an item of outdoor furniture is tough enough to withstand being outdoors. As well as strong structure, you want the upholstery to stand the test of time too.

As well as being shower resistant, it is also mould resistant, a common problem with lower grade upholstery. It’s also UV resistant, helping to prevent the sun from fading the colour

It’s built for family life and entertainment too because the upholstery fabric is also stain resistant, welcome news when you’re welcoming guests for a summer party. Quick drying, it shakes off summer showers without a problem.

What Is AquaClean Fabric and Why Do You Need It?

blog banners 2

We’ve all been in that situation, you’ve had a glass of red wine, and spilled it all over your lovely sofa, or maybe your kids decided the sofa needed a felt tip makeover?  Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way for you to clean up the mess with minimal work and no chemicals…  

Thanks to AquaClean, scrubbing your sofas is a thing of the past!

What is AquaClean? 

AquaClean is a patented and effective material that makes cleaning off any mess from your cushions easier than before. It doesn’t matter what you’ve split; ink, wine, sauce, mud, chocolate or cream, all you need to do is get a damp cloth and some water and wipe away the dirt. Within a matter of seconds, your furniture will look as good as new! 

This is infinitely better than using chemicals, which can be harmful to your fabric, and may even be dangerous if you have young children or pets. 

Unlike many of easy-clean materials, AquaClean is soft and feels like a sofa made from natural fibres, here at Desser we have 10 lovely options to choose from! 

Quick Cleaning 

Like most of us life is busy, and having one less thing to do is always a welcome idea. Trying to balance work life, children, and maintaining your home is never an easy challenge. 

Or maybe your children have flown the nest and you have a slower pace of life, take the time to sit back, relax and enjoy your home rather than thinking about cleaning. 

How it works 

Many of the other easy-clean fabrics on the market are essentially just a regular fabric with a layer of plastic on the outside. Whilst this does make cleaning easier, it also has plenty of downsides. 

AquaClean works differently. The protective layer forms part of the fabrics itself, each thread is wrapped up in a substance that repels the dirt, meaning that it doesn’t soak into the fabric – which is why you just need a damp cloth to get rid of any stains! Sounds good right?! 

AquaClean Fabric at Desser & Co 

You have a choice of 10 AquaClean fabrics here at Desser, available on any of our conservatory ranges all you need to do is select which shade you want and our in-house upholsterers will do the rest.  

All cushions and upholstery is done by hand in our UK workshop where we have a vigorous quality checks to ensure only our best work leaves the building and to top things off, we will deliver your fully assembled furniture FREE of charge (UK Mainland only).

Conclusion

Your sofa is often the most used piece of furniture in your home, and can often start to look tired and worn easily. We believe that AquaClean fabric paired with our premium cushions and hand upholstered furniture is the recipe for a long lasting wicker rattan suite.

How To Choose The Right Furniture For Your Conservatory

Mercer-2-4

It is the finishing touch that will push your conservatory from ordinary to extraordinary. As well as style, you also need to consider function when it comes to choosing the right conservatory furniture.

You invested time, money and energy into creating the perfect conservatory and there is one final hurdle to jump – choosing the right conservatory furniture. 

As well as your own likes and dislikes there are four key areas to consider…

#1 MATERIAL

Conservatories are light-filled spaces but sunlight and heat are a harsh combination. Wood will dry out and some fabrics can be sun-bleached within weeks. Rattan and wicker furniture are two options that have long been used in the conservatory because as a natural material from tropical climes, its composition means it is perfect for this kind of heat and sunlight intensive room.

But if you still think of conservatory furniture and rattan chairs as being old fashioned then you need to take another look.

#2 FUNCTION

How you plan on using your conservatory is key to choosing the right pieces. For example, if you plan on using it as a lounging space, a place your retreat to at the end of the day to watch the sunset, as well as rattan sofas, consider something like a rattan daybed.

#3 DESIGN

With an Edwardian or Victorian style home, choose furniture that blends well with these more traditional designs – essentially, you want to create symmetry and cohesion between the space and its appearance and the furniture you choose. Traditional shapes and designs work well, as does opting for upholstery fabric colours and patterns that complement the overall finish. 

Modern cutting edge conservatory design, however, is for a minimalist, barely-there frame giving the appearance of a more-or-less completely glass structure. If this is the case, opt for slimline, minimal rattan furniture for the conservatory. Make a statement with black rattan chairs or sofas, using geometric patterns in mustard yellow and grey for scatter cushions and rugs.

#4 FORM 

Like other rooms in your home, you will have constraints on space. But even a larger room packed with ‘big’ or tall furniture can look cluttered and dense.

The solution is to look at the form – or its dimensions and structure – of the piece you intend buying. Furniture that is tall and wide will leave less floor space open to view and that means the room will look smaller.

In a conservatory that has ample proportions, this isn’t a problem. In a smaller conservatory, opt for furniture that is slim in its looks and features.

Don’t assume that a rattan sofa is the only solution for the conservatory 

Traditionally, a rattan sofa with matching armchairs was the solution when it came to conservatory furniture. This may work for some conservatories but not all.  For example, would a pair of loft chairs be a more versatile solution? 

Today, there are many more options and solutions when it comes to fabric patterns and colours too.

An opportunity to stamp your personality on things, when you have chosen the style and shape of your Desser sofa, you have a range of 30+ fabrics to make it your own. Adding accents with scatter cushions is not a problem either, as you can customise these with your own choice of fabric too.
