We recreate exceptional Coalbrookdale & classic English metal garden furniture.


Longevity is guaranteed as Coalbrook Victorian garden furniture is produced with traditional workmanship, recycled cast aluminium and West Country powder coating.

Why Aluminium At Coalbrook Victorian Garden Furniture?

Aluminium is an extraordinary base metal and by casting it in sand we reproduce intricate classical designs which are rust proof, rot proof & warp proof. Our solid aluminium will never warp, crack or split. Cast iron is almost 3 times the density of aluminium, iron is heavy and rusts!

Every bench, chair or table part is also impervious to sun, rain, frost or snow and will look the same for many years without any need for maintenance.

In fact we are so confident of the quality of our outdoor furniture that we offer a no quibble 10 year structural guarantee on every single piece.

Our Manufacturing Process

We manufacture from a particular grade of 100% recycled aluminium; LM6.

In addition to being ultra-sustainable, LM6 is created using an ecological process that reuses waste aluminium and consumes only 5% of the energy needed to produce aluminium from ore.

Our historic garden furniture manufacturing journey starts by smelting 100% reclaimed aluminium ingots in heat-resistant crucibles and hand pouring the 660 °C molten metal into a series of sand moulds, at a constant and continuous rate.

This artisan method of sand casting creates wholly solid components with exceptional surface details and facilitates our high-quality reproduction garden furniture.

Post Aluminium Casting

Left to cool and harden naturally the individual sand cast components are then carefully fettled and assembled; no knock down furniture here!

Our reproduction period outdoor furniture is etched and then colour powder coated and baked at  210 °C. This allows the powder coating colour to super adhere into the aluminium surface to create exceptional colour longevity.

The Guarantee At Coalbrook Victorian Garden Furniture

Unlike other metal outdoor furniture, Coalbrook’s hand-crafted cast aluminium range endures sun, rain, frost, and snow. It requires no covering or storage, ensuring its longevity. In contrast to the need for maintenance with other furniture, Coalbrook’s Victorian reproduction pieces require none. 

Moreover, at Coalbrook, we offer a 10-year structural warranty on our aluminium castings. Under normal domestic use, our garden products won’t break, bend, rust, or rot. 

Cleaning Coalbrook’s maintenance-free garden furniture is effortless due to its durable painted finish. To remove natural build-up, simply wash with warm water and a soft cloth or sponge. 

However, please note that accidental damage from mistreatment isn’t covered by our guarantee. Yet, most knocks or dents can be easily rectified using touch-up paints.
