Alexander Rose has been at the forefront of garden furniture design and manufacturing since 1994, and has gained a reputation as a market leader for high quality wooden furniture.
For over twenty years we have designed classic wooden benches, tables and chairs using a variety of durable FSC hardwoods and softwoods. Our timber is carefully selected for its properties, meaning we are confident we offer the best wooden furniture you will find on the market.
Our timber collection offers a full range of furniture in sustainably sourced woods. The premium hardwood range is made from Bolivian Roble, one of the world's strongest and most durable woods. Our second hardwood range is the Cornis range, which is carefully grown in managed forests in The Congo, Central Africa. We also offer a range of benches and a swing seat in Mahogany, and are soon to launch an exciting new collection in this classic wood. We have a full range built from European Pine, which we feel lends itself particularly well to more rustic furniture. Our final collection is a called New England – this is manufactured using a variety of Acacia wood that is then coated in a rich white paint.
Alexander Rose has the widest selection of timber benches in the country and in fact developed the pioneering curved back slat bench that has become a recognised design classic.
Our company values demonstrate a clear commitment to sustainability, and our timber collections epitomise this to the full.
Alexander Rose first started producing rattan garden furniture in 2006, having recognised the modern consumer demand for low maintenance, high quality outdoor products. It was immediately evident from customer response that we had much to offer the market with the combination of our own unique designs and access to high quality weaving.
In fact our initial collections were so successful that in 2007 we invested in our own purpose built factory on the island of Cebu in the Philippines, in order to directly manage quality, production and delivery. Since that time the demand for our luxury garden furniture has increased so much that we have been forced to move to a larger factory to accommodate production needs.
Now several years on from our initial foray into outdoor weave furniture, we have three impressive ranges of traditional and modern garden furniture that cater for all styles, environments and weather conditions. We are also looking forward to a major new launch in 2017, with a completely new range being debuted in two exciting new colours.
At our factory in the Philippines, our in-house aluminium framing department skilfully fabricate and weld the intricate carcasses before powder coating in colours to match the Rose Fibre ahead of weaving commencing. It can take even an experienced weaver two full days to weave an Alexander Rose chair, such are our high standards and our requirements for attention to detail.
Naturally, as with all our manufacturing processes we implement best practice environmental policies. The synthetic rattan and aluminium raw materials used are 100% recyclable, and all wastage is reused to make small components on many of our products. We look after our workers well too, offering excellent rates of pay along with providing hot meals and transport to and from their homes.
Our factory offers financial support to workers with children who wish to attend schools in Cebu, and we have also recently introduced an apprenticeship scheme to offer local unskilled workers the opportunity to learn the many trades used to produce woven furniture. This is our way of recognising and valuing the contribution of the community in producing what we believe to be the most beautiful and hardwearing rattan furniture in the world today.
Following the success of the pioneering Avant Range in 2003, Alexander Rose is now saying farewell after 12 glorious years, making way for the new Cologne Collection.
An inspired concept by the critically acclaimed Danish furniture designer, Povl Eskildsen, the Cologne furniture utilises rectangular stainless steel tubes in conjunction with Roble timber slats, ceramic table tops and sling chairs, all beautifully complementing each other and offering a superb choice of outdoor furniture sets.
The elegant angular furniture has also been designed to integrate with our Roble Collection, giving an even wider choice by mixing stainless steel chairs with Roble tables.
Precision engineered stainless steel frames with a high quality brushed finish is one of the hallmarks of this furniture.
Table top options include Roble hardwood slates, crafted at our own factory in Bolivia and ceramics tops in a choice of two stock colours and three bespoke options.
Chair options incorporate Roble slats, stylish woven Rose-slings in mixed grey or graphite colours, and charcoal coloured woven string for a completely unique looking chair.
Needless to say, we are excited about the future of this worthy successor. We know that the Cologne collection will continue on from the Avant, and contribute in creating some of the worlds most beautiful homes.
