New Products & Best Sellers at Solex

This year we've really invested in understanding what today’s consumers want from their outdoor space, and these new products reflect the importance of wellbeing and living a sustainable life outdoors, such as a new garden bar complete with stools, the Freya garden seating range, and a pizza oven table, all acknowledging consumer desire for ease and convenience when it comes to achieving their outdoor vision.

New Product Flyer for 2023

Freya Dining & Furniture Range

The Freya design presents a new design aesthetic and incorporates alternate width wooden slats cleverly spaced to make a very comfortable ergonomic seating shape.

The extended high back improves comfort and support but also gives a sense of drama and presence to the outdoor dining experience. The encompassing style and presence of the Freya Dining Set offers the customer value for money through good design and premium appearance.

All details of the product have been considered, particularly the width and length of the arm rests, which provide maximum arm support as well as allowing space to rest a glass with a modern and contemporary look.

Part of Zest’s new Easy Build range, the Freya dining set is designed with fewer components for simple assembly using bolts. To suit any size of outdoor space the range offers a choice of furniture combinations including two or three seater benches, round or rectangular tables, chairs and a companion seat for two.

Harriet Dining Set

The Harriet Table and 2 Bench Set is ideal for dining outdoors as it gives a real connection to nature. Its Bavarian-style pieces have smooth curved edges with crossed-over curved legs, adding elegance to any garden.

The two 1.60m benches can comfortably seat up to six people whilst dining.

Made from FSC®-C114990 certified timber and with a 10-year guarantee against rot, Zest’s Harriet Table and bench will add another feature to any garden.

Folding Garden Bar

The Folding Garden Bar makes entertaining easy and takes moments to construct. Sturdy and well built, it's designed with no assembly required. Simply unfold the side panels and fold down the hinged shelf and add the countertop.

Well designed and practical, it makes a great centrepiece either as a bar or displayed against a wall. Shelving is ideal for glasses and drinks and designed with under shelf space for larger items. Convenient and handy, the Folding Garden Bar is easy to fold away and store.

This multipurpose bar also makes a great potting table or BBQ side table.

Made from FSC® timber and with a 10 year guarantee against rot, the Folding Garden Bar is perfect for entertaining family and friends.
