Hire garden furniture from Rio Lounge instead of buying this year!
High demand for garden furniture
As Boris’s ‘roadmap’ unfolds and lockdown measures are gradually eased, it’s only natural that socialising is once again high on the agenda. After months of staying home and hardly seeing friends and family at all, we can’t wait to get back to some semblance of normality! From 29 March, the ‘rule of six’ will apply once again and we will be able to meet in outdoor spaces and gardens. And of course, we all know by now that socialising in outdoor spaces is far less risky from a Covid point of view, than hosting a house full of people. So naturally, many people are looking to ‘bring the indoors outdoors’; creating a sociable setting outdoors in their own gardens. This in turn has meant that the demand for rattan and other outdoor furniture is exceptionally high.
Shipping problems and sky-high import costs
Even large companies such as John Lewis and Ikea are currently experiencing issues with their supply chains. Many companies have reported that the cost to ship a container of furniture from China can currently be up to 10 times the normal price. Congestion at the ports caused by Brexit-related red tape isn’t helping matters either.
