Can the garden furniture really be left outside all year?
Yes, all our garden furniture is made with materials that can remain outside all year long, in rain, snow and sun.
Our exclusive Waterproof Cushions are offered as standard across the majority of our All Seasons range and are resilient enough to withstand unexpected downpours and most stains. During heavy rain, we advise that our Waterproof Cushions should be positioned with the seat cushion pulled forward slightly and the back cushion slid down to where it is touching the base tucked in behind the seat cushion to prevent water pooling and entering through the zipper.
Are your cushions really waterproof?
We are proud to exclusively offer the UK’s first fully waterproof cushions. Following six years of development, our Waterproof Cushions, made from marine grade acrylic fabric (a waterproof membrane and Teflon treated yarn) are both fully waterproof and virtually stain-proof even against red wine and bleach. To discourage mould growth, we advise that your Waterproof Cushions are stored in a completely dry environment such as under a waterproof furniture cover, indoors or in a weatherproof storage box.
What is the rattan garden furniture made from?
Our synthetic handwoven Rattan is made from a polyethylene based extruded fibre that is strong, flexible and durable. The material is UV and weather-resistant, and tested from -70c to +80c. The wicker will not split or crack, and will show no noticeable signs of fading.
What are the rattan garden furniture frames made from?
Our garden furniture frames are constructed from reinforced tubular aluminium finished with epoxy paint or powder coating to ensure durability and longevity over time.
What timber do you use on your wooden garden furniture?
We always use high quality, kiln dried teak sourced from carefully managed plantations and forests in Indonesia.
What is the difference between the Mayfair Collection and other rattan collections?
The Mayfair Collection is our mid-market range, offering great value for money. Each set is supplied with our standard, non-waterproof charcoal grey cushions. The modular pieces in the Mayfair Collection are stand alone and sit perfectly next to each other.
Our All Seasons Collections use the highest quality Rattan and are supplied with our fully waterproof cushions. These are also virtually stain-proof and UV resistant enabling them to be left outside all year round with very little maintenance required.
What is an HPL top?
HPL stands for High Pressure Laminate, a resin based material that is very durable and perfect for outdoor use. It is waterproof, stain resistant, scratch resistant, heat resistant and does not shatter like glass, meaning it is well suited to be used for dining tables, coffee tables and side tables. Ranges with HPL tops include Cliveden, Hampstead, Florence and Windsor.
Where can I find all the dimensions and weights of the furniture and other products?
Most of the dimensions and weights for our pieces can be found on the product pages under the Technical Details tab. If you cannot find a certain measurement, please contact us for more information.
Can I buy any cushion colour with any weave?
Yes, however if this differs from what is offered in that collection, the cushions will need to be made bespoke. This incurs an additional 5% surcharge and have a lead time of 6-8 weeks.

How can you give such long guarantees?
Bridgman has been making and selling furniture for over 45 years. As we have supplied thousands of happy customers throughout the UK and worldwide, we are confident that our furniture will make you happy for years.
As we only use the finest materials and skilled tradesmen, we proudly offer industry-beating guarantees and a dedicated after-sales service.
Specific guarantee terms for each item are listed on the product page, and further terms and conditions can be found on our Guarantees page.
Why does one collection have a 3 year guarantee and another a 10 year guarantee?
Due to the materials and manufacturing process used for each furniture component, guarantees can vary across Collections. The Wickerline range of Rattan, used in our Mayfair Collection, uses a process called dual extrusion where weave is extruded and colour is applied as a surface coating. This is the industry standard and allows for a good value for money product.
Our more expensive Rattan Collections are made using a longer lasting and higher quality process called mono extrusion. This is where all of the core materials including colour, UV inhibitors etc. are added to a hopper and extruded together to ensure a consistent and thorough application, guaranteeing that the furniture will look good for even longer.
Bridgman are one of the only brands in the world to use the mono extrusion process because it is a more expensive process. On the surface, it is difficult to tell the two types of Rattan apart as they are comparable in both style and look. Differences are only evident in scuffs and scrapes that may occur from moving and storing the furniture due to the Wickerline’s different internal colour, unlike our All Seasons pieces. With proper care and TLC, your furniture will stay looking good for years to come.

I've lost or damaged my parasol bung - can it be replaced?
We are happy to supply replacements of parasol bungs. Please contact our support team at email@example.com and let us know which table you have.
I've lost or damaged the cover for my parasol - can it be replaced?
Yes, however this is dependent on stock. Replacement covers can be purchased if needed.
My mayfair table has warped in the sun - what should I do?
As with all mid-market synthetic rattan furniture, our Mayfair Collection tables may be susceptible to sagging when exposed to high temperatures or prolonged heat, due to the glass tabletops acting as a mirror for the sunlight and causing additional heating. When exposed to heat, rattan absorbs moisture from the air, making it more elastic and prone to sagging, but once the weather cools down, the rattan fibres contract, return to their original state and restore the furniture's shape. Though this temporary sagging may be unsightly in the short term, please be assured that the rattan's natural resilience will ensure it regains its original shape once the temperature decreases.
