Zest's outdoor entertaining collection to feature at SOLEX
GTN Xtra Promotion

Timber garden furniture and outdoor leisure specialist, Zest is unveiling its ‘at one with nature’ outdoor cooking and entertaining collection at SOLEX (stand number #538).


Since its new strategic consumer focus as Zest Outdoor Living , the company has developed a collection of innovative on-trend products which are not only about relaxation in the outdoor space, but also creating the complete – and naturally inspired - outdoor room for alfresco cooking, dining and relaxed entertaining.


Examples include: 


The Zest Terraza Outdoor Kitchen Range offers everything the consumer needs from a kitchen outdoors and blends beautifully into the natural environment – and has a very attractive RRP. With double kitchen units that come with a stainless steel top, they are perfect for food preparation and the open fronted corner unit provides masses of storage and is also perfect for setting up a pizza oven.


Zest’s Garden Pizza Oven Table with 360-degree access for fueling and cooking has been specifically designed with outdoor cooking in mind. The central tabletop holds the pizza oven with fold up sides for preparation and serving. 


Zest’s Garden Bar & Two Stool Set - a perfect party piece which is also space-saving and innovatively versatile.  

It is quick and easy to set up by simply opening the doors to make a sturdy base for the fold down counter which acts as a bar and opening the side panel doors to reveal fully fitted cabinet shelving ready to display drinks and glasses.


The Zest BBQ Side Table - ideal for preparation and serving.  It has two solid shelves and a 0.91m long table top for food.


Zest’s Stirling Arbour is chic and practical with ample seating for four people.  A sanctuary in which to enjoy dining in the garden, relaxation, or coffee and conversation.



The Zest Freya seating and dining range which includes a choice of chairs, tables, and benches to suit any size of outdoor space. 


The new Ascot 2.4m Pergola makes the entertaining space complete and will transform a garden seating area making it the ideal place for relaxation and entertaining. The pergola’s sturdy 90mm x 90mm frame comes with chamfered rafters.


Head of Commercial Development, Simon Davison commented, “We’re thrilled to be returning to Solex with a curated collection of products to show our garden centre stockists, department stores, and online retailers. We’ve made a huge commitment to understanding what todays’ consumers want and designing product accordingly.  It’s all about enjoying life outdoors and relaxing with nature.”
