Bali Colonial Bench Teak

Upcycling, reinventing and re-using old furniture to give it a new lease of life is a seriously hot topic in interior design at the moment. But rather than just another fad, turning old or discarded furniture into beautiful, new pieces is a fantastic and sustainable way of creating a stylish, and eco-friendly home. Sharland & Lewis are a great example of how to make stylish and elegant updated furniture from old pieces. Their new garden furniture embraces the idea of transformation. Their new and exciting range draws on pieces from the beautiful island of Bali. Drawing on the idea that recycling is a way of life for Bali, they have recycled chairs and benches to create the perfect range for an English garden. Some of the chairs and benches fit a 1960s style aesthetic, made entirely from teak, they exude cool retro style. They have low, rounded edges, in cool aqua or ocean colours, giving every garden a sense of the calm of the sea.

The other part of the range consists of furniture reinvented from old colonial frames with slats from old fishing boats. These are truly a unique part of history, remodeled to fit perfectly with a 21st Century garden. The colonial chars have a 1930s feel, giving the sense of a Parisian café culture to any patio, perfect for summer entertaining! We love that they also make a range of cushions and upholstery, in vintage inspired prints to match. Founded in 1998, Sharland and Lewis have a genuine passion for turning unusual or discarded furniture into beautiful, contemporary pieces, often with a quirky and intriguing vintage background. Certainly, this garden  range has both style and substance, proving that great pieces, can, and should be, timeless.
