Bridgman Inspired Living Showroom, Wilmslow **

Yeah Lifestyle was recently invited to visit the Bridgman‘s Inspired Living Showroom based in Wilmslow to see and learn about their new line of furniture being showcased for 2018. We enjoyed the tour given by the Store Manager, Jonathan who has been with the store since it’s opening two years ago.  We came back even more inspired on how we were going to decorate our back garden especially since the sun is shining even more now and Spring is not that far off.

There were so many things that we liked about the Bridgman furniture and soft furnishing. We will mention these later on in the blog post. We would totally recommend just popping over to their store to have a look see to get some inspiration for your home, indoor or outdoor.  Not decided on what to get? Ask them for a copy of their Luxury Outdoor Furniture Collection Catalogue which has over 200 pages with photos and full product information in it.

Do watch our HD video and photo vlog which includes Jonathan giving us a demo of their water proof cushions as well as sharing a little bit about the Red Devil Ceramic BBQ Oven (which we just love and wish we had!!) and this retails for £999.

Bridgman in Wilmslow are currently having their January Sales and giving discount for up to 40%, so head there before the end of the month for some good bargains. Here, we are sharing some sneak peek look into their latest 2018 furniture designs.


The Verona Collection

This collection includes lounging furniture (inspired by the new 2018 trend, Italian coasts and seas and constructed from aluminium) which is both comfortable and durable. They are accompanied Aqua Grey cushions which are waterproof and stain proof, so there is no need to worry about red wine spillages. (This is amazing and we were totally sold when Jonathan, the store manager demonstrated water spillage on the cushion for us, have a look at the video to see what we mean).



Verona Lounge Armchair with 50cm Side Table and Footstool, priced at £1249



Verona Modular Set C, priced at £5799

The Verona collection also includes the dining furniture which is inspired by the new 2018 trend, mixed materials trend. There are rattan dining chairs which are mixed with high quality aluminium HPL table – making this set stylish and long lasting.


Verona 170cm Verona Rectangular Dining Table with 6 Dining Armchairs, priced at £3249

During our tour of the 2-floor showroom, we noticed that the tables were decorated with these lovely life like flower bouquet and found out that we could purchase them if we wanted to.  These as some of Bridgman’s beautiful faux bouquet. Bridgman have teamed up with an expert floral designer who hand-ties these gorgeous flowers so they look and feel just like fresh flowers. Each petal is intricately hand painted to make every flower unique. Every bouquet is given with their signature Bee pin (you will see a photo of this in the video).


Winter White, priced at £109


Burgundy Blooms Bouquet, priced at £95

These Paris Collection are also new to their 2018 collection and are made by Grosfillex, this is exclusive to Bridgman. Grosfillex is a very well-known company whereby their furniture is ideal for small spaces as it is easily storable. There are lightweight stacking armchairs, sun loungers which stack and also a flat folding dining table (Tolouse Dining Table). The Paris collection is made out of durable maintenance free materials; resin, High pressure laminate (HPL) and aluminium which require minimal effort to clean. The table tops are made out of HPL which means they are not only water resistant, they are scratch resistant as well. All the furniture is weatherproof and waterproof. There are lounging sets and also dining sets for people who want to relax or dine. Better still, this collection is incredibly unique as it is comfortable without the need of seat cushions! The images show waterproof scatter cushions which can be an option. This collection is available in 3 shades; volcanic grey, volcanic black and ice white.

Why buy from Bridgman?

  • You have the option of popping into their showroom for inspiration and doing the purchase via the knowledgeable staff or if you are busy, you can also do it online.
  • They are renowned for their great after sale service, you pay just one price and that includes the delivery cost for anywhere in mainland UK and they will come and set the furniture up for you, hassle free with all packaging removed.
  • All of their furniture is weather proof and waterproof so you can leave it out all through spring and summer as they use teak which has been kiln dried for 3 months. In winter, you could either purchase special covers to protect the furniture from the frost or you could purchase storage boxes for it.
  • They are the only company that sell fully waterproof cushions.
  • Most of their furniture comes with either a 3 year of 10 year guarantee
  • They carry stock so it usually takes about 10 days for your to get your order unless its pre-ordered
  • They are steadfast in their believe of only producing quality and fine designed furniture hence for all their rattan furniture, Bridgman only insist on using the complete strand of weave for maximum strength.

So yes, we would totally recommend popping into their showroom, who knows…you may even bump into some local celebrities or footballers’ wives who frequent the shop.


About Bridgman

The story of Bridgman started in 1977 with Peter Bridgman following the footsteps of his father into the furniture industry.  Together with Howard Barnett, he soon set up a workshop in North London to manufacture quality British furniture. Bridgman, as the company was named, crafted its reputation around 3 core values that still live on to this day; quality, design and comfort. In 1987 they launched their first collection of luxury garden furniture. Their in-house designers and advanced production techniques allowed them to fill a gap in the market and soon saw them becoming the first UK Company to decorate wooden outdoor furniture with ornate detailing. Having already established a network of trusted retailers, they secured valuable floor space in garden centres throughout the UK and Europe.  They are a fan of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, and have been showcasing all their new designs for the last 27 years and have won the Best Exhibit Design Awards four times.  Peter and Howard still work in the business and oversee the running of the company accompanied by Peter’s two sons, Robert and Alex. This has allowed Peter’s appreciation for fine design, good craftsmanship and unrivalled service to be passed down to the 3rd generation of Bridgman’s.

Now with 5 showrooms and a curated selection of retailers, Bridgman continue to innovate and shape the UK’s home & garden furniture industry. 2017 marked their 40th birthday. For them design goes far beyond aesthetics, they believe that a well-crafted piece of furniture can transform your space and allow you to maximise the time spent relaxing or entertaining in your homes & gardens.

      January 30, 2018 / 2:21 pm

      Hope this post helps you with that decision Erica

  5. January 30, 2018 / 10:01 am

    I love the idea of the cushions being waterproof, my kids play with water all the time in the summer so this would be really practical as well as looking good!

    • yeahlifestyle
      January 30, 2018 / 2:21 pm

      Yes we agree, especially when weather in the UK is so unpredictable all the time, you don’t have to keep bringing in the cushions when it pours

  6. January 30, 2018 / 10:26 am

    That outdoor sofa looks absolutely stunning, I can’t wait until I have a garden that I can buy furniture for x

    • yeahlifestyle
      January 30, 2018 / 2:20 pm

      Yes we totally agree, you need a little bit of relaxation space for you to chill and unwind

    • yeahlifestyle
      January 31, 2018 / 12:39 pm

      Their materials can be quite sturdy Joanna, you’d be surprised and they do come with warranty, so it sure is child friendly to a point.

  16. January 30, 2018 / 11:02 pm

    I absolutely love the Verona set, such an unusual design and colour! I love how they have the different “set ups” which show the items in a natural environment and how it would look potentially in my house. Such a great idea to have showrooms such as these!

    • yeahlifestyle
      January 31, 2018 / 5:07 pm

      They are having 40% discount Agata, and you can get cheaper priced sofas too, but it may look slightly different.

  21. January 31, 2018 / 4:11 pm

    Those flowers look stunning! A lovely post and a really detailed review! If only I lived closer so I could check out the showroom these seams right up my street! 💗

  22. January 31, 2018 / 6:07 pm

    The Bridgman‘s Inspired Living Showroom sounds and looks great. I adore interiors and my exterior furniture and I love nothing better than having a good look for more items that I can buy much to the hubbies dismay. The grey outdoor set that you featured is stunning

  23. January 31, 2018 / 8:50 pm

    There is some lovely inspiration for garden furniture. The Vernona range is fabulous, very stylish, and the flowers are so pretty. Looks like Bridgman’s do some great collections.

    • yeahlifestyle
      February 2, 2018 / 10:13 am

      They give you storage boxes to keep them away or to put a protective covering on them, so they will be in great shape

  25. January 31, 2018 / 10:08 pm

    All the furniture is absolutely gorgeous! I particularly like the Verona Modular Set C! That is something I want in my home.

  27. February 1, 2018 / 10:44 am

    Now I want to go furniture shopping!
    But especially those fake flowers are amazing! I can barely believe that these aren’t real – the pictures look like still life oil paintings, actually! Now I want some to take flatlay pictures with…

    • yeahlifestyle
      February 2, 2018 / 10:12 am

      They look so real, no one will know they are fake

  28. February 1, 2018 / 11:42 am
