This year's Hotelympia in London's Excel building saw furniture manufacturers of outdoor furniture, cafe furniture and a wide range of other products from food items to catering equipment, show there products to the trade and consumers. Being suppliers of cafe furniture we felt it was imperative to visit and see what these manufacturers had to offer.
One thing that was noticeable when looking around the trade show the amount of synthetic rattan furniture that was on the market. Rattan has always been used as outdoor furniture as it is strong and able to withstand heavy weather conditions, making it perfect for commercial and domestic use.
There was not only the standard synthetic rattan furniture available such as rattan chairs, but there also featured furniture items such as sun loungers, gazebos, sofas even day beds made from rattan furniture.
Other outdoor furniture such as plastic furniture was also on display. Much like rattan furniture, plastic chairs and plastic tables are available in a wide range of colours and can also withstand a wide range of weather conditions. One of the great things about plastic furniture is that it is easy clean and doesn't fade over time in the sun.
Another product that seemed to be quite popular amongst the ranges of outdoor furniture was the Werzalit table tops. One major advantage to these is that they are suitable for use indoors and outdoors so you can create two spaces that match. Werzalit table tops are scratch and heat resistant to the point that you can stub a cigarette on them and they won't mark. Available a huge range of colours and designs as well as bespoke logos, these table tops are a fantastic choice for any cafe or restaurant.
