The Independent is an online newspaper covering all the usual topics of a mainstream print daily; news, politics, sport, lifestyle, environment, entertainment, health and fitness and much more.

They reviewed the 8 best artificial Christmas trees and featured 3 of our trees; the 6.5’ pre-lit Kingswood pencil, 3’ Woodland Carolina Bark Pole and the 7’ Iceland with dual cosmic lights. All the reviews were extremely favourable pointing out the features which make each tree special. The Kingswood is very slim and ideal for today’s modern apartments or to go in a hallway, if you live somewhere slightly grander place one either side of the living room door to create a feeling of entering somewhere special. The review did state that they had to unwind the lights from the branches in order to better space them out, but this is entirely unnecessary, the lights are not designed to be unwound.

The Woodland Carolina is a small extremely realistic tree in a pot which comes already decorated with cones so does not need much more adding just a small set of lights and maybe a few natural ornaments. The small size makes it ideal for anyone who has no floor space as this tree can easily be stood on a table or on a windowsill.

The pre-lit Iceland tree is at the top end of the price range due to it’s 3-way lights. They can be set to twinkle, flash, fade or just be static. There is a colour-way to suit any decorative scheme; warm white, multi-coloured or pastel. The trees are also quite heavily snowed so particularly suit an Arctic winter or Scandi style of palette.  

The Independent also reviewed the best 11 artificial wreaths and they selected our Glittery Pomegranate Pine wreath which they described as being great value if you have a silver and white colour scheme. Many of our artificial wreaths are made using the Feel Real PE branches so they look exactly like the real thing.

This Extreme Lounging Monster Bean Bag is ideal for a child’s bedroom as it is constructed from a tough wipe-clean fabric which will withstand a battering. It is filled with polystyrene beads which mould to the body and retain the heat so ideal for both playing and lounging. Not only are they suitable for a child’s bedroom but as they are easily transportable, due to the handle on the top, they make a great alternative to the normal run-of-the-mill garden chairs. We have one of the largest online selections of outdoor garden furniture, artificial Christmas trees and barbecues and accessories. View the feature in the Independent

The Cambridge Bistro Set was included in The Independent’s round-up of the 10 best pieces of garden furniture. They concluded that is was perfect for enjoying a light lunch or drinks and comfortable enough to also be used for lounging the day away. This set is constructed from a synthetic resin weave which means it can be left out in the garden all year round, although we do recommend that you take in the cushions if there is rain forecast and in winter. This top quality resin is dyed throughout so that if it does get scratched it won’t show as a white mark as the weave is the same colour in the centre as it is on the outside. We stock one of the largest online ranges of the best quality all-weather garden furniture from resin weave to timber to aluminium, so we’re sure to have something to suit your taste and budget.
