How did it all start?
Lazy Susan was founded in 2007 by business owner, Michael Scott, literally from his garden shed.
After many years of trying, in vain, to maintain various teak and wooden garden furniture sets, it became clear to Michael that the long term solution was in fact aluminium garden furniture; maintenance free and totally rust proof garden furniture, almost to good to be true. No rust and no rot.
After much searching, product testing and deliberation, Michael found a range that exactly fitted the bill and then launched Lazy Susan Furniture in March 2007. Since then, thousands of metal garden furniture sets have been successfully delivered, and our metal garden furniture range has greatly expanded.
The early years 2007-2010
Michael's passion is to offer exceptional customer service and deliver a superior product at really great prices.
After around 15 months, the business' success required Lazy Susan to leave the garden shed and move to larger premises on a farm in nearby Chilgrove nestled in the South Downs between Petersfield and Chichester. Sales grew from around 200 sets a year to 500 sets and then more than 1,000 sets and 7,000 chairs in 2011
Lazy Susan exhibited at many Garden Shows in the fist few years including Surrey County Show, RHS Malvern Spring Gardening Show, Suffolk County Show, Edenbridge and Oxted Show, Newbury Show, Stansted House Garden Show, Midland Game Fair, Parham House Country Show.
Our first website cost £1,000 and was launched in 2008, it was such a success that we upgraded to a new site in 2009. The requirement for further staff was evident and a local graduate David Bryant was hired. David came in to structure the site expansion and oversee business development with Michael. In 2009, the business doubled sales and continued on this trajectory into 2010.
After completely filling two barns with stock, it became clear that substantially a larger warehouse was needed, and that it would make great sense to lease this space from a Transport Company.
European expansion 2011-14So in 2011 Lazy Susan moved to their current location in Chichester, where we have over 8,000 sq ft permanent storage space and the facility to use an extra 10,000 sq ft during the peak season.
The company is a small, family business with a small, highly motivated and dedicated team of staff whose primary objective is to deliver outstanding customer service and a quality product at really competitive prices.
As a direct result of our small team's focus on exceptional customer service, Lazy Susan have received more than 1,200 customer reviews in the past 24 months and our rating is a fantastic 4.8 /5
We are also really proud of the 600 customer photos that have been sent to us in the past couple years and you can see these pictures all over our website.
Due to that really wet summer in 2011 it became obvious that it was a little risky to wait for the British summer to arrive , so we launched a French website in July 2012. Business in France was quite good so we decided to try a site in Germany which went live in March 2103
Currently we have 5 European websites: France, Germany, Holland, Spain and Italy; and we also ship garden furniture on a regular basis to Belgium, Switzerland, Austria and Portugal.

Why buy from us
Cast aluminium garden furniture has so many benefits over teak garden furniture and cast iron garden furniture.
- Aluminium garden furniture will not rot and will not rust.
- Maintenance free.
- Long life guarantee - it will not need replacing every 3/5 years like wood, plastic and other materials.
- It is designed to be left outside all year.
It is without doubt the best garden furniture that you can buy!
ShowroomCustomers like to sit in the chairs, see the tables and get a real feel for the furniture before purchasing. We have decided not to create an expensive retail showroom but to add a 2,500 sq showroom to our warehouse in order to keep our product prices as low as possible for our customers. All of our tables and chairs are on view and customers can take-away their purchases. Just like at that Swedish furniture shop.
Our warehouse is available for visits by appointment. Please call 01243 71 71 97 or email email@example.com.
You can call us as late as the day before to book in a viewing- the showroom is open Monday - Friday 9am to 5pm.
