John Robertson Limited
Traditional British Craftsmanship from John Robertson Ltd

John Robertson's specialised experience in manufacturing hardwood timber products dates back to the 1950's. We source all our materials from all over the world, and as Environmental Policy members of Forests Forever, we recognise our responsibilities to both the environment and the well being of the local people; we ensure that the timber used only comes from sustainable and well managed forests. A long standing relationship has been developed with our raw material suppliers, ensuring that we receive only the best kiln dried iroko and that all our timber arrives on schedule.
 
Our timber comes from Ghana in West Africa where, in 1907, Mr Thompson first established the Forestry Department whose principles were based on conservation. Ghana has long had a forest policy that is the envy of the world and today operates a strictly controlled selective felling and effective yield management system thus ensuring that its rain forest continues to grow and flourish.
Iroko is superior to all other woods for the manufacture of garden furniture with the exception of teak. However, by comparison it is more attractively priced. It is a material that will cope with all weathers without treatment. Its inherent durability is renowned in the boat building industry and it is used extensively in Eire for their premier range of windows and doors.
 
All John Robertson Ltd. products are entirely manufactured from iroko hardwood in our Suffolk factory by skilled craftsmen. Traditional construction methods are used, with doweled mortised and tenon joints. Screws and Allen key fixings not being used in any of our furniture. Meticulous attention is paid to detail and all components are generously proportioned ensuring life-long durability. Only the best kiln dried iroko is used as high quality iroko furniture which will give you years of use.
John Robertson Ltd. has its own furniture designer who has over 30 years' experience of furniture design and wood production and who now concentrates on making individual pieces. He has worked with JRL to produce a range of garden furniture that is timeless in its style and extremely sturdy.  

John Robertson Ltd. has a range of 10 different tables to suit every occasion together with an excellent selection of chairs. All the furniture is designed to complement each other and with absolute comfort, style and durability in mind.
John Robertson Ltd. offer a selection of cushions, all of which have been tailor made to fit the furniture. These cushions are excellent for outdoor furniture as they are rot and fade resistant and have removable covers. We also offer a selection of parasols, which have a generous durable hardwood frame, Scotchguard treated canvas TM with matching canvas cover, leather straps, brass fittings and a double pulley system
