The Flamingo picnic set is for those who enjoy understated design. In its individual parts, the design is the epitomy of simplicity but when brought together, the designer flair and the contrasting matt white aluminium frame makes this picnic set stand out from the rest. The frame has been made from non-recycled aluminium which has then been electrostatically coated in a beautiful matt white finish.
What is an electrostatic coating and why do we use it on our furniture?
Electrostatic coating is a smart process because electrostatically charged paint particles accelerate towards the aluminium frame and "surround" it evenly, giving you a super smooth and consistent finish. It is used in the car industry and ensures the aluminium frame is not only evenly coated but also that the colour is consistent and professional in its finish.
This elegant set also uses beautiful chunky Brazilian FSC certified hardwood. The hardwood used in all our furniture is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) meaning that it has come from managed plantations and is not contributing to the worlds deforestation problems. It consists or one large 150cm long dining table and two elegantly proportioned benches. Picnic sets are a great British classic so we thought why not bring back this category with a sleek, minimlaist and modern design. The benches are sized so they conveniently slide into the picnic table to save space when not in use which makes them ideal for when you have the family and kids over!

Cleaning & Care:
General Garden Furniture Assembly Tips:
• Try to assemble your furniture near to where it will be placed to avoid having to move it once assembled.
• Be sure to place your furniture on a flat and even surface to prevent unnecessary stress on the connecting joints.
• If you need to move your furniture elsewhere, make sure you get somebody to help you lift it. Do not drag the furniture, as this can damage it.
• If you have assembled your furniture yourself, be sure to regularly check the bolts and re-tighten them if necessary.
• Use coasters and placements to protect your furniture’s surface from any hot pans, plates or glassware.
Flamingo Cleaning & Care FAQ's:
Can my furniture be left outside year-round?
Whilst eucalyptus is rot-proof to withstand outdoor use we recommend bringing your eucalyptus furniture inside during the winter months or any harsh weather conditions. Please make sure the set is well ventilated otherwise mould may form.
Do I need to do any regular maintenance on my furniture?
Simply wash the furniture using a brush and soapy water once a year to remove any algae and lichens from the eucalyptus. You can then opt to apply an outdoor wood oil to give the wood colour and a new surface finish, we recommend contacting your local DIY store for suitable oils.
