Preparing for Chelsea Flower Show 2021

The Solus team are excited to be preparing once again for Chelsea Flower Show, which is set to take place in September this year.  After last year was cancelled we are thrilled to be able to able to show our products again at the world famous show and have the opportunity to collaborate with some fantastic brands that compliment the Solus fire and water features.

This year the RHS are breaking with tradition by holding the Chelsea Flower Show in September rather than the historic May date. This creates both challenges and opportunities for the designers working on the show gardens due to the change in season and the need to look at alternative options for plants in bloom at that time of year.

It’s lovely to see how garden designers are translating the challenges faced by the health system over the last year with tributes through their garden designs at Chelsea Flower Show this year. These gardens have an emphasis on calm and tranquility, with the idea of these spaces being a place of sanctuary.

Solus Decor will be creating our very own retreat for Chelsea Flower Show with a touch of a woodland escape inspired by the wonderful new National Trust range recently launched by Artizan of Devises. We have collaborated with Artizan of Devises for the show this year and can’t wait to use the woodland glade porcelain tiles.  We have taken colour inspiration from the tiles, which we hope to continue in the planting set against an oak backdrop created by the decking from Envirobuild.

We can’t to see our fire and water products on display with this woodland retreat backdrop, we will be exhibiting a range of both fire and water and we are thrilled to be exhibiting our Tavolo fire table for the first time in the UK.  We hope to see you there!

The launch of The Pacific Rim; combined fire and water feature

Solus Decor launched the new combined fire and water feature at Chelsea Flower Show last week. The fire and water feature is called the Pacific Rim,  which takes inspiration from our Canadian roots. For years people have asked if they can have the best of both our products. As a result our team in Canada have worked hard over the last year to create the pacific rim. The pacific rim creates a spectacular focal point in any outdoor setting. You can hear the water gently cascading over the metal surface while you enjoy the warmth of the fire.

The Trade Stand

Solus Decor worked with a number of suppliers to create the ideal outdoor setting to compliment the concrete fire and water features designed and produced by Solus Decor.  The stand was build by Thorburn Landscapes. This year we have been fortunate  enough to work with Envirobuild who supplied us with a fantastic composite decking. The composite decking compliments our products like our fire and water features it is designed to withstand the elements. Anti-slip and reversible Hyperion Decking comes with up to 25 year limited residential warranty against splits, splinters, rot and fungal decay. This low maintenance solution is perfect choice for any commercial space or residential garden deck. We used the Hyperion Pioneer decking in silver  birch and we couldn’t be happier with the finished result.

Our planting was provided by Worlds End Nurseries a beautiful oasis in Chelsea. A sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle. Worlds End Nurseries is a family run business that has been serving the local area for decades and if you haven’t visited it’s a must!

The final special touch was bespoke chairs from Brent Comber Originals from our home town in Vancouver. Brent created the perfect seating for our fire and water feature made from hand carved cedar. The Brent Comber chairs share the same curved design as the Pacific Rim, which created an inviting space for guests to enjoy the calming sounds of the water and the warmth of the fire.
