Gearing up for outdoor living with our first outdoor photoshoot!

Seeing that all our furniture is handmade using reclaimed materials, be this retired Javanese fishing boats, recycled oil drums or reclaimed teak, we can’t help but love the great outdoors. Each of our pieces has an inherent rustic charm, influenced only by Mother Nature herself.

As a new business there are so many things you want to achieve all at once, but of course the reality of time, money and scheduled container deliveries often bites back to curb the excitement. We were therefore over the moon when the time eventually came for us to undertake our first outdoor furniture photoshoot, wahey!

Working with Adam Lynk Photography, who has captured some beautiful imagery for the likes of luxury hotel, Chewton Glenn, we worked on a brief that would give our furniture a certain edge and dare I say it, we basically wanted it to look really cool! The setting for our shoot was the stunning De La Warr House in Lymington – an incredible Grade II listed building that afforded both original and modern features, with the special addition of a natural swimming pool!

Embrace Alfresco Dining…

Over the past three years BluBambu has seen a growing trend in customers wishing to invest more in their outdoor living space. It is often overlooked as potentially the biggest room in the house when it comes to entertaining family and friends during Spring/Summer and with a surge in open plan living and bi-fold doors, it has never been easier to let the outside in or vice versa.

Both our Fortema and Andreas reclaimed teak table and bench set provide a smart, contemporary look, whilst effortlessly encouraging an informal vibe for those everyday family gatherings. The unique and distressed texture is an inherent natural beauty of reclaimed teak.

Enjoy a relaxing sundowner…

Our natural leg teak root bar table offers something truly unique for those seeking a more organic talking point, whilst the distinctive lines of the Raline table provides contemporary style and modernity.

Both the Raline and Natural Leg bar table and stool set start from £889.00 (including two stools).

Something a little more urban…

For those wishing to push the boundaries and disrupt the norm, our up cycled oil drums inject colour and industrial-chic. Just add a fire pit, outdoor pizza oven and of course some great mates for an informal, chilled evening. Good times! Drum seats £199.00; wind lantern £35.00.
