Tim Fenby formed his own design consultancy in 2006 after leading the design function at some leading UK furniture brands. During this time he also travelled the world developing new collections.

'I want to create furniture that is truly aspirational, I love creating, I love designing and I am passionate about what I do.'

The Avon Range

Working with Barlow Tyrie is therefore a natural progression and last year saw the launch of the stunning Avon dining table and chairs range.

It was a sensitive design process with Barlow Tyrie taking the lead stipulating proportion, detail, material choice and the quality fixtures and fittings expected by their consumer base.

This range has now been extended with new deep-seating – a three-seat settee, armchair and ottoman; a Swivel Rocker (that rotates 360 degrees and rocks at same time) along with square and rectangular coffee tables, plus two circular dining tables, all in high grade solid teak.

Outdoor Living

As Tim says, 'We are increasingly treating our outside spaces as a logical extension of the home. These spaces are being afforded the same care and attention as our interior rooms, with thoughtful consideration given to the design.'

'Mirroring our approach to interiors, we are seeking out exterior furniture that reflects our personal sense of style; reflects who we are and what we aspire to be – furniture that adds emotional value to our lives.'

The designer reasons that as the use of outdoor rooms is increasing, for relaxation and entertaining, people will therefore seek out quality items that are fashionable and will last, with the option to add new pieces.

Comfort and Practicality

With the Barlow Tyrie range, Fenby is offering the type of style and material that historically has been the reserve of interior design, and it reflects an increased desire for comfort together with practical considerations such as the ability to store or reduce the size of their outdoor furniture when not in use. 

'We all have aspirations to improve our living standards and create ever more beautiful homes. It’s the role of the designer and manufacturer to inspire, whilst producing quality through every aspect of what they do'.
