It’s raining furniture deals

Perhaps not surprisingly, furniture that is designed for both conservatories and outdoor use as well as summer houses have been selling well. Sales of Rotating Spheres (Pods – deluxe summer houses) are up 150% on last year. There are three different designs, with the most popular costing £7,495.
