At Gloster we open doors to timelessly beautiful exteriors where your furniture sets the mood, just the way you want it to be. And we take the long view, using only the very best materials and techniques available. Our aim is your pleasure – to be enjoyed in countless special moments outdoors.
Gloster’s roots can be traced all the way back to West Africa in 1960, where a band of passionate entrepreneurs and furniture makers took the first steps on a long journey. By the early 1970’s, increased demand and access to plantation grown teak led us to move our factory to Indonesia. Today, the same passion, conviction and pride that launched the Gloster brand, continues to fuel our business. We may live in a different world than the one occupied by our founders, but one thing remains the same – we are furniture makers whose sole focus is to design and build the world’s finest outdoor furniture. Because we believe.
The benchmark hardwood for fine outdoor furniture for more than 700 years. With a beautiful buffed sheen or a soft natural finish, every piece of Gloster teak originates from carefully managed plantations and is thoroughly inspected to ensure that quality endures. A closegrained hardwood with a high natural oil content, teak is exceptionally hard wearing, highly resistant to rotting and almost impervious to the effects of sun, rain, frost or snow – the first and only choice of timber for outdoor furniture. Because it matters.
Skills & loyalty. Gloster and fine craftsmanship go hand in hand. Our furniture is not the result of random mass production – human hands have created every rounded corner and every joint, and the quality of the furniture is the result of our employees’ knowledge and skills. All of the craftsmen in our factories are proud of their ability to process wood and upholstery. They are craftsmen to their fingertips, and have worked with their trade for years – exclusively for Gloster. We look after them and are proud of them. Because we care.
