Paving: The Best of Both Worlds at RHS Tatton Park Flower Show
We are delighted to announce that our collaboration with Olympian Garden Buildings at this year's RHS Tatton Park Flower Show was a huge success. The stand was designed to showcase both the more traditional buildings such as sheds and summer houses alongside the modern outdoor buildings. We sent a mix of traditional and contemporary paving materials, including porcelain tiles, brick pavers and stonecast to create a unique and eye-catching look for the best of both worlds. Sue from Courtingtons created a stunning design that was both stylish and functional incorporating the two styles seamlessly.
The Olympian Garden Building Stand
At the front of the stand was our new Mill Bay driftwood porcelain pictured below, with a Desser & Co-chair and stripey cushion giving it a more nautical feel. The Mill Bay Porcelain offers a great option for gaining the earthy feel of decking without the high maintenance of wood. This tile also paired beautifully with the cedar cladding on the stunning modern garden building which featured a bar, seating and neon sign. This room showcased the craftsmanship and quality of buildings Olympian produce and provides a perfect solution to adding more functional living space to UK gardens.
To the left was a small section of Snowdonia Grey Slate Porcelain which led to a contemporary outdoor kitchen area laid with Fosseway Grey Porcelain. This featured a stunning Draco Grills kitchen complete with BBQ and fridge and was covered with a beautifully modern and functional LuxSol aluminium pergola - perfect for the unpredictable British weather. A small section showcased our Tudor Brick Pavers which added a little colour and character to the clean and contemporary area.
To the rear of the stand were the more traditional garden buildings featuring quaint summer houses and potting sheds, this area was aptly laid with our National Trust Petworth Paving and featured kitchen garden details such as a veg stand and sunflowers and chic table and chairs set along with furniture from Desser & Co.
We look forward to continuing to work with the family-run Olympian Garden Buildings on future projects and can't wait to see more of our paving and flooring in their stunning garden rooms.
