Built to Last: Celebrating 30 years of Enduring Quality


When it comes to outdoor furniture, investing in high-quality pieces that are built to last is essential, but even the best-made furniture needs care and attention to keep it looking its best. Having recently celebrated our 30th anniversary, we were delighted when Mrs Rowland, a long standing Gaze Burvill customer, got in touch for an aftercare service on her outdoor furniture collection featuring furniture dating all the way back to 1994.

Mrs Rowland was one of the first owners of the May Throne, purchasing two at our first stand at RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 1994, followed by a Court Seat, some Junior May Thrones and a collection of other Gaze Burvill furniture in the years that followed. It was clear that over time the furniture had been well maintained, ageing beautifully and still looking great despite being almost 30 years old. Following an evaluation of the earliest pieces, the May Thrones and Court Seat, Aftercare Manager, Darrell Walsh, concluded that they were in good condition with very little in terms of repairs needed. Darrell and the aftercare team then gave the furniture a steam clean and oil to maintain water repellency and colour to keep it looking its best.

Mrs Rowland was quick to praise the quality and durability of the furniture, noting that “it’s so comfortable even without cushions” and that she “loves the little children’s seats which even the adults use and are very comfortable too!” It was clear that she had taken great care in maintaining her outdoor furniture and that it had brought her many years of joy and relaxation in her garden.

At Gaze Burvill, we take great pride in creating outdoor furniture that is built to last. Mrs Rowland’s story is a testament to the importance of regular maintenance and care for outdoor furniture, and we’re thrilled that our May Thrones and Court Seat have brought her so much happiness over the years.
