PLAISIR DU JARDIN: OUR SERVICES

HOME DECORATION CONSULTING

Investing in a garden furniture set can be quite costly, which means that you have to trust your partner. Don’t hesitate to come and meet with us at the store. Bring a project plan and/or pictures of your property with you. They will enable us to discuss ideas for your garden and terrace with you. We want to get to know you better to be able to provide you with the best possible advice for your project. If you are satisfied with our proposal, you will become a precious “active reference”.

We can then come to your home to get a better understanding of your environment and the architecture of your house, evaluate the space and shape of your terrace and give you the best possible advice on the furniture best suited to your needs.

If you find that you are hesitating about the right choice, Plaisir du Jardin can bring selected furniture to your terrace to enable you to better visualize the final result.

We can also bring you to the showrooms of our main supplier partners who have the complete collections on their premises.

WARRANTIES

Our best guarantee is the “trust” you have in your reseller: Plaisir du Jardin has made after-sales service a strong commercial argument. We know that happy customers will recommend us to others. We have been in business for over 25 years !

In addition to the irreproachable quality of the outdoor furniture supplied by “leading garden furniture brands”, they also provide clear, reliable warranties. In addition to the warranty period granted, Plaisir du Jardin uses its special relationship with its supplier partners to improve the solution provided.

Garden furniture is subject to sometimes harsh weather conditions: the furniture must be taken good care of (for example, parasols must be closed when the wind starts to gust…) and maintained based on the materials the garden furniture is made with :

Teak: major garden furniture brands make their furniture with “grade A” teak wood. This means that they use the inner portion of teak trunks that are over 80 years old. The teak is dried in special ovens that dry the wood as thoroughly as possible. We don’t recommend oiling your teak furniture: “grade A” teak is a hardwood which breaths and oiling it can have a negative result, such as the appearance of black humidity stains. You shouldn’t cover teak furniture with a dust cover either: “grade A” teak won’t rot or become damaged outdoors, but it does need to breath.

Of course, unoiled teak will gradually turn silver-grey in colour, which is part of its charm.

After the winter, your teak furniture must be cleaned. Winter dampness will cover it with some light moss: you can use a special teak cleaner and carefully rinse with clean water...Never use a “Kärcher”! Next, use teak sealer to give the wood is original colour back. The use of a teak protector will make cleaning stains easier during the season.

If your teak is damaged by a cigarette burn, for example, you can sand down the area. The wood is very hard and won’t be damaged.

Ceramic: ceramic has been introduced as a new table top material over the past years. In addition to a highly decorative look, your table will be equally at ease indoors and out. The material can’t be scratched. Ceramic can, however, break if it is mishandled. Ceramic is easy to maintain with soapy water.

 

Batyline and Textylene: extensive use is made of these petroleum-based synthetic fabrics which make your garden chairs and armchairs very comfortable without the need for cushions. Rain will not affect the fabric, which is not the case for cushions which should be brought inside. Leading garden furniture brands only use batyline (made in a French factory under the Ferrari brand). Batyline will not discolour in the sun. This is important if you buy table chairs and armchairs in this white material. On the other hand, white textylene can yellow quickly. Washing with soapy water and a clean water rinse is all that’s needed to maintain your batyline or textylene.

Stainless steel and aluminium: aluminium has taken over the garden furniture market over the past three years. The advantage of this material is that it can be easily powder-coated in different colours. It is also lighter and less expensive than stainless steel.

 

Stainless steel must be electropolished if the garden furniture is made with 304 grade steel and will be used at the seashore (electropolishing isn’t required if the steel is 316 grade).

Aluminium is easy to maintain: simply wash with soapy water and rinse. Stainless steel should be cleaned with a rag and a special product to remove stains and make the steel shine (stainless steel cleaner/polish)

Woven resin: this is a synthetic material made from oil. It comes in (round or flat) fibres which can be easily woven around an aluminium frame (to avoid rusting). The fibres can be easily dyed in many different colours.

The fibres are easy to maintain with soapy water and a clean water rinse.
