Blue Forest returns to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show

We are delighted to be back at the prestigious RHS Chelsea Flower Show this year, and will once again be showcasing a spectacular, one-of-a-kind Blue Forest treehouse on Main Avenue. The public will be given the rare opportunity to view a luxurious treetop suite – the first accommodation treehouse we have exhibited at the show.

Created in collaboration with the UK’s newest luxury spa and wellness hotel, Fairmont Windsor Park, in Berkshire, the treehouse exudes luxury while bringing you closer to the natural world we are so passionate about. Following the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, the treehouse will be transported to its new home on the grounds of Fairmont Windsor Park, where it will form part of their luxurious treehouse accommodation offering.

Located on the show’s famed Main Avenue, the Fairmont Windsor Park Treehouse, by Blue Forest, will be immersed in a natural planting scheme by Randle Siddeley, a leading landscape architecture and urban design practice based in London.  In keeping with the theme of this year’s show, native plants that benefit wildlife will be in abundance creating a relaxed feeling that adds a wonderful juxtaposition to the strikingly modern treehouse. Those with an eye for detail will notice the gorgeous William Holland outdoor bath, sustainably hand-crafted furniture and lighting by Tom Raffield, and a striking Myburgh Designs swing seat hanging below the deck.

“We are thrilled to be back at the Chelsea Flower Show this year and very excited to be collaborating with our good friends at the incredible 5* Fairmont Windsor Park Hotel to showcase a fabulous treehouse accommodation suite. It is one of the most ambitious builds we have taken on for the flower show to date, and we couldn’t do it without the support of our many sponsors and partners. In particular we are delighted to be working with Randle Siddeley and his team who are designing the garden, so do come along and join us on Main Avenue – you won’t be disappointed.” Andy Payne, Founder & Managing Director, Blue Forest

Ryan Nicholls, General Manager at Fairmont Windsor Park said; “At Fairmont Windsor Park we are dedicated to offering the highest service standards across a variety of accommodation types, spa and wellness experiences and dining options. Our treehouses are an exciting addition to our already extensive number of accommodation categories and will offer guests a chance to connect with nature while taking in the stunning 40 acres of grounds. Joining RHS Chelsea Flower Show with our esteemed partners Accor and Blue Forest gives us a rare opportunity to showcase what our treehouses will feel like.”

We love the natural environment and want to do all we can to protect it, that is why we promote sustainable principles and ethics throughout every stage of our design and build process, so you can rest assured that our treehouses are as eco-friendly as possible. Our structures use FSC-certified timber where possible to ensure that the materials we use come from well-managed forests and other verified recycled sources, helping reduce forest degradation and improve the labour and environmental conditions in the local area.

Each Blue Forest treehouse is a celebration of wood and natural materials and is finished to the highest standard by experienced craftsmen. This year we have collaborated with a number of companies whose vision and values are aligned with ours, and we thank them for their continued support and contribution to this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
