The RHS Floating Bench

Chelsea Flower Show success and media exposure have driven demand and we are very happy to report that The Floating Bench is now an RHS Licensed Product, joining our existing RHS Range.

The Official RHS Press Release reads…..

An outdoor bench in textured, scorched and natural solid oak, the RHS Floating Bench plays an optical trick – the backrest and arms appear to float. It’s an extraordinary look — and a beautifully designed product — that has gained a lot of positive public and press reaction after the official launch of the Floating Bench at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2016 as part of the Sitting Spiritually Simon Thomas Pirie Range

At the show the Floating Bench was nominated as a finalist in the Chelsea Product of the Year awards. It was also loaned to two show gardens: the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show and RHS Tatton Park Flower Show, where both designers’ gardens won Gold medals.

And, of course, the Floating Bench has also attracted a lot of media attention, on television during BBC2 coverage of the RHS Hampton Court and Tatton Park Flower Shows, and in the pages of The Observer, The Mail on Sunday, Woman & Home, Gardens Illustrated and Garden Design Journal (the journal for the Society Of Garden Designers).

Since the launch, demand for the range, and in particular the Floating Bench, has kept Simon Thomas Pirie, a noted designer of beautiful contemporary furniture, and Sitting Spiritually, from which the range is available to order exclusively, very busy.

Cathy Snow, RHS Licensing Manager, says: The breathtaking design of the RHS Floating Bench exceeded our expectations and was a resounding success at three RHS Flower shows. We are sure it will now be equally popular in private gardens all over the UK!”

Martin Young of Sitting Spiritually, says: “Our role as an RHS licensee and our appearances at various RHS Flower Shows have enormously boosted public awareness of the RHS Floating Bench. We’re pleased with the response, thrilled that Simon Thomas Pirie’s extraordinary skill has enjoyed deserved recognition on such a wide scale, and delighted to be working with a name that is synonymous with the best in gardening.”

The RHS Floating Bench is available to order exclusively from Sitting Spiritually & can be seen at RHS Wisley, outside the shop
