New Fermob colours for 2019

Fermob have introduced two new colours for 2019; Red Ochre and Acapulco Blue.

Red Ochre is an earthy, volcanic tone, evoking hot desert, whilst Acapulco Blue is an oceanic, aquatic shade. As usual they complement and co-ordinate with other colours in the range. On their respective pages, we’ve suggested other combinations of colours you could combine them with.

Please click one of the circles below to go to the part of our website where you can see more information about each colour.


Also, Fermob have resolved the production problems they were having with one of the colours last year, 2018, with Deep Blue, and we are happy to say that it is available to order all of the Fermob metal furniture in this colour once again.
