Meet the Team



It all started back in 1979 when Gilles Fortin purchased 3 swings for himself and family members. Gilles started to assemble the swings in his front yard but never got to finish as passers-by kept stopping to admire the swings.

Being the entrepreneur that he is, Gilles sold the swings to his audience, and realizing that there was a gap in the market for quality outdoor furniture, bought more furniture, and started offering it to people with delivery and set up included in the price!

The rest as they say is history. Gilles is still the owner of Flamborough Patio Furniture, often working 14 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you’re looking for him and he’s not in his office he can often be found in one of the shops building a gazebo or shed.

As you browse through this brochure you’ll see many different designs and ideas but it is by no means a comprehensive list of products that are available. We offer a huge range of styles and sizes in all product categories, many of which can be seen on display at Flamborough Patio Furniture. If it’s not a standard product you’re looking for speak to one of our knowledgeable salesmen about having it custom built. We rarely say no, and believe that the impossible is merely a challenge!
