From the Owner

I began my career in 1974 as an associate manufacturer's rep selling upholstered furniture to retail furniture stores along Florida's East Coast. In 1983 I became a manufacturer's rep selling pool & patio furniture to retail stores along Florida's West Coast, and to commercial accounts also. My first big commercial sale was to Busch Gardens theme park in Tampa, Florida.


In 1996 I went into business for myself selling commercial furniture only. Since then we have grown to a multimillion dollar business with commercial accounts worldwide.


The majority of our furniture products are 100% Made in the USA, with some furniture imported from Spain & Italy, along with some umbrella frames made to our specifications in China, and with the covers made in the US.


We have an alliance with about a dozen of the top name brand furniture factories in the US, and we are either commercial sales reps or House accounts for these factories.


We have outdoor and indoor furniture of the highest commercial quality, at very competitive prices and with excellent customer service.

The bulk of our business is outdoor furniture from pool and patio furniture, umbrellas and cabanas to site furnishings (picnic tables, park benches, bike racks, etc.) We have two factories producing 100% US made umbrellas, and two more that are partially made in China, of exceptional quality. We are now working with upholstered indoor furniture again, also.


All of our furniture is hotel quality and we have sold to hotels and resorts worldwide, along with US military bases, US embassies, NATO, water parks, theme parks, apartment complexes, condos and home owner associations. We have an active GSA number and as such are vetted by the US government.


We would like to increase our presence in the Hospitality industry, and we seek new sales and networking opportunities. If you are in the market for competitive, high quality commercial furniture, please contact us and let us bid. Our furniture is much better than average commercial quality, with a focus on safety features and long term durability.

Thank you and best regards,

Joe Griffin President
