Alexander Rose – a high-quality handmade garden furniture
Alexander Rose is an award-winning garden furniture manufacturer based in Burgess Hill, West Sussex. Established in 1994, the brand pioneered the first curved back slatted bench, a design feature that is now a staple across garden furniture worldwide. Today, the brand is the UK’s leading timber outdoor furniture manufacturer and also the biggest bench supplier to garden centres all over the UK, with clients including the National Trust and Kew Gardens, as well as hotel groups including Exclusive Hotels and Iconic Luxury Hotels, to name a few.
A vibrant and modern company with one foot always in the future, Alexander Rose is built on championing fresh ideas, delivering striking designs and embracing cleaner, greener and more sustainable ways of bringing outdoor furniture products to market. Its aim is to make outdoor living stylish and enjoyable. The company manufactures products that enhance the garden as much as the lifestyle of the customer.
Its in-house design team works in a creative triangle with its own factories and international award-winning designers to produce products with the modern customer in mind and help create a seamless transition between their interiors and outdoor space. People nowadays are using their garden as an extra room of the house so comfort is more important than ever. And with the rising popularity of bi-fold doors, it’s deemed essential to have a stylish as well as functional outdoor space to complement the aesthetic and quality of the interiors.
The brand believes in long-lasting quality as an antidote to throwaway culture. Alexander Rose uses the highest quality materials and offers warranties of up to 10 years on their collections. Innovators in the market, are the industry benchmark in terms of sustainable quality of craftsmanship. All of its timber is FSC-graded which means the supply chain can be traced, ensuring it is helping to regenerate forests along the way. In addition, it avoids single-use plastic in its packaging and recycles and reuses all leftover materials at the manufacturing stage.
Its signature and best-selling ranges include Sorrento, Rimini and Cordial and Cordial Luxe.
Sorrento is an award-winning luxury furniture range that has received high praise from its customers, in part because it’s incredibly hard-wearing and designed to age beautifully over time. The collection includes corner and mid modules to create variable sofa configurations, in addition to a sunbed and ottoman. The wood used in this range is 100% premium teak, FSC-graded and sourced from sustainable forests in Brazil.
New to the Sorrento collection this spring is the Sorrento Dining which consists of a generously sized armchair and a choice of 8 or 10 seater tables. Also formed from 100% premium teak, the chair has a slatted back and seat with softly tapered legs and a curvaceous sturdy base frame which complements the curved back form of the modular lounge design and is guaranteed to elevate any exterior.
Another signature range is the Rimini. The Modular Lounge comprises two two-seater modular sofas, one corner sofa to connect them together, and two low, square coffee tables all formed from aluminium. The modular sofa looks stylish from all angles as the back features a strapping detail that makes it stand out from the crowd. The collection, which also includes a three-seater sofa, generous lounge chair and coffee table, is sleek and elegant with angular, modern edges that give an effortlessly sophisticated look. The range is also extremely durable and can withstand the harshest weather conditions, with season-proof cushions that can be left out all summer long.
In addition to the Rimini Modular Lounge set is the Rimini Extending Table, designed to make hosting incredibly easy by transforming in seconds from an 8-foot table to a 10-foot table that can seat up to 12 guests. Formed from quality aluminium, it’s effortlessly sleek, highly-crafted and praised regularly for its ease of use and practicality. To complement the table is the stackable armchair which looks as good as part of the dining set as it does on its own in a cosy corner of a patio.
With the Cordial Luxe collection, each piece of furniture is crafted from tubular powder-coated aluminium frames that have been hand woven with marine-grade olefin rope with a soft rubber core for a faster drying time compared to unfilled ropes. The lounge range includes modular sofas, lounge chairs, a sunbed and coffee and side tables, all available in either light grey or dark grey.
The Lucy Chair is the signature piece within the Cordial Luxe collection. The chair comes with either a sturdy base or cantilever frame and is designed to make the user feel as though cocooned in a snug space. A unique and very attractive chunky rope weave is handwoven onto the frame and makes up the chair surround.
The Cordial collection includes a lounge chair and two or three-seater sofas, as well as side and coffee tables. The dining options include a choice of tables to seat up to eight people. All items are available in a grey or beige finish.
In addition to these much-loved collections, Alexander Rose also does a range of garden accessories including parasols, a must-have for any garden this summer.
