About us

Who we are

It started with a bench 45 years ago when our chairman Robert Bowden was 27.

Now 72 years old that same bench has had 45 years loyal service outside our showroom and never seen a drop of furniture oil.

That first bench has evolved into a very select collection of beautiful teak furniture. Our furniture is the most important testament to our standards of excellence and each piece is finished to perfection. We’re naturally innovative and masters of our craft constantly bringing new ideas to our traditional techniques – and we do all this because we care.

Bespoke Design

Our creative designers work collaboratively with you through each part of the process, in realising and developing your own ideas into a one-off bespoke piece. It is an exciting journey that takes time, but produces pieces of great originality.


We remain an independent family-run company, built on values of integrity and trustworthiness. Our people and customers are encouraged to feel like part of the family.


The vision behind the design of each piece of Chic Teak Furniture has its own story to tell. Skilled teams work closely together to do justice to each design, creating furniture that become the pride and joy of any garden.


Our teak comes from ecologically managed and sustainable plantations, which have a SVLK certificate (Timber Legality Assurance System) to ensure that the teak stock is well managed and serve to alleviate the stress of the World's tropical forests.


We only make the very best teak furniture, using the finest A grade teak and of course everything is finished by hand.
