Fantails Garden Furniture is an established garden furniture manufacturer based on the south coast of the U.K in Dorset. We have been making and selling our unique swing seats, chairs, and benches for over 30 years. We use materials sourced for suitability and environmental sustainability. We are a family run business and design all our products.

We have chosen Canadian western red cedar for its durability, naturally occurring oils, that adds protection, and pleasing, aesthetic look, which makes it ideal for outdoor use. Other uses include greenhouses, roof shingles, and cladding. We use European pine milled to our own specifications and preserved under pressure which increases the lifespan to over 15 years. Even our fixings are brass and stainless steel and have been chosen for outdoor use.

Our workshop is based on a farm under the Purbeck hills. It’s small but doesn’t stop us from producing furniture to a high standard. Each piece of wood is visually inspected for defects and flaws which ensures our furniture is delivered in perfect condition. Our products will arrive part assembled, the hard parts have been done, with easy to follow instructions and links to clear videos. Our largest garden pergola swing includes assembly by the people who have made it. With all this in mind, our objective is to supply a high-quality product that will give years of pleasure.
