Leading Atlanta-based outdoor furniture retailer AuthenTEAK was recently featured in Sunbrella’s Shine August retailer spotlight. Every month, Shine features information regarding upcoming Sunbrella events, a retailer spotlight, a fabric focus and frequently asked questions about Sunbrella fabrics.
The Retailer Spotlight focused on AuthenTEAK’s success story: originally opening as a small weekend-only store in 2004, with a rapid expansion into its current incarnation, a 15,000 square foot designer showroom in the trendy West Midtown neighborhood of Atlanta along with a feature rich eCommerce website. Business partners Eric Brenner and Damon Fogel wanted to fill a need for stylish outdoor furniture options in the Atlanta market.
“Our customers are looking for product knowledge, as well as the ability to see, sit, touch and feel the furniture,” Brenner said. “The size of our store and breadth of our product offering allows shoppers to try out various furniture sets and find the one that best suits them.”
AuthenTEAK’s product offering has expanded from teak furniture and includes stainless steel, wicker and upholstered outdoor furniture as well. To complete the outdoor room, AuthenTEAK also sells BBQ grills and full outdoor kitchens, large patio umbrellas, fire pits and lightweight planters. The store contains inviting furniture vignettes and outdoor accessories, and carries a wide selection of leading outdoor furniture brands. In addition to Sunbrella, AuthenTEAK also carries Barlow-Tyrie, Gloster, Kingsley-Bate, Elaine Smith Pillows and many other stylish brands. AuthenTEAK also launched their own private label line of modern outdoor furniture this year.
AuthenTEAK Outdoor Furniture is an owner-operated hybrid-style company combining the foundation of a brick 'n mortar showroom with a fully functional eCommerce website. AuthenTEAK is the true definition of an owner-operated business where ownership is on-site virtually 365 days a year. When communicating with the showroom in-person, on the phone, via email or Live Chat, you’ll have almost a 50% chance of speaking to one of the owners. We do not outsource any form of customer service, we do not use a call center and the two owners are always just one call away.
