Our Ethos - BarlowTyrie

Barlow Tyrie is renowned worldwide for luxury outdoor furniture that strikes the highest note in quality and style.  Our international reputation is based in part on our superior designs, which we share with quality interior furniture making a piece correct to the eye and body.  To these designs we add our uncompromising pursuit of quality in materials and manufacture - this is our ethos.


Manufacturing since 1920, we remain a family business in its third generation with directors Peter Tyrie and his sons, Mark and James managing the company.  We have always specialized in the manufacture of high quality teak furniture to which more recently we have added products in stainless steel, powder-coated aluminium, Eucalyptus, and hand-woven synthetic fibre.  These new ranges have proved very successful and feature strongly in our current collection; however the expert use of top-grade teak remains at the heart of our business and with demand for quality teak furniture on the rise, its use can be seen in several of our new ranges.

Traditional values; quality, craftsmanship, service and care

Over many years we have expanded our range of contemporary and traditional designs for outdoor living.  Our designers have combined pleasing design with ergonomic performance to create furniture that opens life outdoors to a world of stylish possibilities.  Through our commitment to produce the finest outdoor furniture, we remain at the forefront of this rapidly changing industry and continue to demonstrate the best in British design and manufacturing expertise.

As the world's oldest manufacturer of quality teak leisure furniture, our teak wood is first grade plantation grown teak (Tectona Grandis) sourced mainly in Indonesia, where responsible forestry practices are employed.

We are proud of our customer service that offers after sales help and promotes an ongoing relationship with our customers. Throughout the life of a product you can be confident that our aftercare will support any query you might have.

We thank you together with all our customers; by choosing our quality furniture we proudly welcome you into a select, discerning group of owners and hope to be of continued service to you.

Development and Innovation

The development of our furniture benefits from our manufacturing knowledge and experience to give products that are constructed to the highest standard.  We only use the finest materials available, which are tested and approved to any appropriate British Standard for safety and strength.  Our range of furniture includes many pieces that have won international design awards and are frequently copied classics.

We have diversified in recent years developing collections in a variety of quality materials, which we combine with both traditional and innovative construction methods.  It is reassuring to know that our designers and craftsmen are creating 'modern-classics' with the quality, style and comfort that has become the hallmark of our ethos.
