Gallant & Jones Fine Outdoor Living
The Deck Chair
Our most popular product is our Deck Chair, it is a fantastic piece of Outdoor Furniture that allows to be folded completely flat for easy storage and transportation, this is a great feature for people who want to take their Deck Chairs to the beach or move them around the garden to follow the sun… There are 3 positions to recline in: upright, reading and snoozing. Each Deck Chair and Footstool is designed to facilitate interchangeable fabrics, our customers love this feature so they can change the look of their outdoor spaces with new fabrics and colours every Spring. Isn’t that brilliant? A frame that will last years and years, but you don’t have to worry about getting bored of your fabric selection or the colours you choose. Each piece is handmade to a very high finish eco-responsibly, we use North American White Oak and an eco UV protectant oil. With every sale we plant a tree. Our fabrics are updated constantly. That’s why our customers keep coming back for more.
How It All Started
Gallant and Jones was formed in August 2009 after Tamra (Gallant) visited the UK with her family and fell in love with the numerous Deck Chairs that she saw in parks and on beaches, she wondered why these chairs were not readily available in North America. On her return to Vancouver BC, she proposed making the chairs as a business idea to her Welsh friend Gwyneth (Jones). They decided to make the chairs by hand, utilising Tamra’s woodworking know how and Gwyn’s textiles and design skills. The two girls decided very early on that if they were to bring a new product line to the market- place that they should do it with the best of intentions and build a company that they and their families could be proud of.
Gallant and Jones Evolution
Tamra and Gwyneth handmade each and every deck chair, stool and tray that left their workshop. After 2.5 years of really really hard work and plenty of splinters, they found a local manufacturer who held the same ideals of high quality, fine craftsmanship and eco-responsibility. They now have more time to expand the business and to add exciting products to the Gallant & Jones brand. If you would like to be informed of when new products are available, join the mailing list and follow the Gallant & Jones blog. With every deck chair purchased a tree is donated and planted through the Love Trees Program. We care about the world we live in. “Love Trees provides trees and environmental education to school children in Africa, North America and Haiti so kids can have a Love Tree of their own to plant. When they plant their tree, they get to make a wish for the planet. They’re also learning that they have the power to help make the world a better place.”
