The B2B contract market is a tricky one, especially for a Retailer such as us. The homeowner is easy for us to define, we know our consumer base, but the B2B market is more diverse, with a smaller numbers of customers of vastly different sizes, looking to make highly informed decisions.
That’s not to say the homeowner doesn’t do that, of course they make informed decisions. However, whereas a homeowner may buy a few pieces of garden furniture at most, with the trade customer that contract could run into 100’s. Throw in the fact that’s there could be multiple decision makers, budgets and so on, things start to get a little more complicated.
However, this is a fantastic opportunity for Lazy Susan, our products are perfect for weddings, hotels, golf clubs, basically any business that has a need for outdoor (or even indoor for that matter, its been used before) furniture.
Classically styled, robust construction, and materials that have been designed to stand up to the elements. We know our products have a look that sets us apart from many of the current trade suppliers, in a material that will stand up to, if not outperform, other materials such as timber.
Our outdoor furniture could sit on a hotel patio, without the need for staff to bring it inside if there’s a sudden downpour. It requires very little in the way of maintenance, a wipe down with warm soapy water once in a while will suffice. No need to stain. And at the very worst, you may need to touch up the odd stone chip on the bottom of a chair leg with our touch up kit.
That’s the reason for launching Lazy Susan Trade… As well as serving the public, Cornwall to Chester, London to Lanarkshire, we have expanded our business to supply a large number of contract trade customers throughout the UK.
And I must stress that this is not something we’re new to. We have been supplying the trade for a number of years. Its just that this is the first time we’ve had a dedicated Trade section on our website. Our recently launched site gave us the perfect opportunity to rectify that, and start actively promoting that side of our business to the B2B market.
Lazy Susan B2B Trade Customers
I’ve handpicked a few examples below of Trade customers, so you can see who we’ve supplied recently. In the coming months, I plan to pull together a few case studies, which will give you a better feel of what we’ve supplied, who to, and the reasons why they chose Lazy Susan. In the meantime, if you have any further questions, please drop us an email to [email protected] or call us on 01243 717197.
Patio Furniture for Wedding Venues
The style and quality of our garden furniture lends itself perfectly to a wedding. The white pieces work especially well, and you’ll find our tables and chairs used on site at Hampton Court Palace (pictured above) for functions and in-house catering. They purchased a number of four seater round sets in white, to use specifically for wedding functions.
You will also find our furniture at the stunning Upwaltham Farm wedding and party venue for al fresco seating at functions. The stylish design of our furniture works beautifully in their picturesque setting. Low maintenance and eye-catching in form, it can be left outside when not in use and simply wiped down before functions. Made from high grade cast aluminium, it is lightweight and easy to move around.
Patio Furniture for Sporting Venues
Home to one of the finest parkland golf courses in East Anglia, Saffron Walden Golf Club has a number of our round 6 seater outdoor dining sets on their terrace overlooking the 18th green. We extended an offer to the club members for a discount on their own sets too, and have also supplied a number of Club Members with Lazy Susan furniture.
The popular Pedham Place Golf Centre recently refurbished their 18 hole course in Swanley, Kent, and they too are also now the proud owners of a number of our 4 seater round 120cm dining sets. The Maintenance free aspect of our garden furniture has proven popular with a number of golf clubs and our sets can also be found on the terraces of Lisburn Golf Club (pictured above), Shirley Park Golf Club, Hartney Witney Golf Club and Belton Park Golf Club to name a few.
And its not just finding favour with golfers, a number of our sets can be found on site at Wimbledon Tennis Club and The Queens Club (pictured above). The maintenance free, weather proof nature of the furniture means that they can be kept court side all year round, if necessary. However, whilst the furniture is sturdy, it is light enough to pick up and move, making it the perfect contract garden furniture.
Garden Furniture for Activity Centers
Our furniture can also be found among the animals of Chester Zoo. Well not exactly amongst the animals, but close enough as they purchased half a dozen sets with seating for upwards of 40 people.
The popular Pleasurewood Hills Country Park is another venue making use of a number of Lazy Susan outdoor dining sets. They’ve ordered our products for two consecutive years now for use in their public catering area. Pleasurewood Hills ordered 25 bistro tables each with 4 Jane metal stacking chairs. The Jane and Mary chairs are a great choice for the contract market as they’re both light yet very durable. Plus the stacking factor makes them easy to store without taking up too much space.
Our furniture is used at our local Sailing Club, just down the road in Bosham. Being weather resistant, our seating provides the perfect choice for a quayside glass of wine after a long day out on the water. Just a few meters from the sea, Lazy Susan aluminium garden furniture does not rust, so it is the perfect choice for coastal properties. And as a result of seeing the furniture at the club, several members are now also the proud owners of Lazy Susan furniture.
Garden Furniture for Care Homes
Lazy Susan recently supplied over 34 patio sets to South Lanarkshire Council for use in their Care Homes, whilst Oldercare Care Homes in Sussex and Hampshire were another care home operator who purchased Lazy Susan contract furniture. We supplied them with our large rectangular 8-10 seater Madison sets. Lazy Susan garden furniture can also be found on the patio at the Chelsea Hospital Retirement Home too.
Garden & Patio Furniture for Villas & Hotels
Our outdoor dining sets have proved incredibly popular with hotels and holiday homes one the past couple of years. Clients have included The Savoy Hotel, Tylney Hall Hotel, Burrendale Hotel, Ramada Jarvis Hotels and the beautiful Villa Mandala (pictured above). The fact our furniture is maintenance free and can be left outside all year round make it perfect for this sector
Patio Furniture for Offices
And its not just the hospitality industry, we’ve dipped a toe in the corporate contract market with our furniture taking pride of place at the Mulberry HQ and The Institute of Directors. We also recently provided seating for staff on site at Dairy Crest’s local office.
