Imagine a skilled, dedicated craftsman who works hard, long days just so you can sit back and relax in your own backyard! Meet Gilles Fortin of Flamborough Patio Furniture, the owner, designer, lead hand and fun-loving salesperson of the area's leading outdoor living centre.

Each and every piece is quality crafted and superbly designed in the Flamborough Patio Furniture tradition. Your investment in quality is sure to add a touch of distinction to your home's yard. It all began when Gilles Fortin purchased three swings for himself and family members. He started to assemble the swings on his front lawn, but he wasn't able to finish them because people kept stopping to see what he was doing. Never one to let an opportunity slip by, Gilles sold his swings to the interested spectators - delivery, assembly and installation included! Happily, the three people who bought them were so pleased with their purchases, they're still customers to this day.

Realizing a lot of people would appreciate a company dedicated to producing quality outdoor furnishings at surprisingly reasonable prices, Gilles enlisted his wife and children to help him start their own business. Initially he kept his day job, while in the evening he made the furniture the customers had ordered. Like any business person just starting out, he was willing to put in 16 hour days to keep his customers happy.

That philosohy of hard work and customer satisfaction lives on today at Flamborough Patio Furniture. Gilles still puts in 100 hours a week during the summer so his customers can relax and enjoy the great outdoors.
