The chairs are made of galvanised and powder-coated steel, so you can leave them outdoors come wind, rain or shine. They’ve got a matte, dark grey finish that’s a softer alternative to black. The tabletop’s made of granite, a tough stone with a matte finish and tiny pits on its surface. You might spot ribbons of colour running through it in dappled shades of black, white and grey.
How it feels
Cheltenham’s seat is quite deep and wide, and it’s one of our lowest, so it’s made for relaxing. It’s got an angled backrest, so you can slouch down a little if you like. And the cushions are firm enough so that you won’t feel the metal frame digging in anywhere.
There’s lots of detail on the chairs, from the scrolls on the arms to the tiny ball finials and the circle on the backrest, so it looks good even when left bare in the winter. The arms have flat tops so they’re comfortable to lean on. The granite tabletop’s got a decorative curved edge – it’s in keeping with the rounded frame and gives a lighter look.
