An Introduction to Rosara

The Riviera Set - Rosara Range 2017
The Riviera Set

Here at Rosara, the family-run outdoor lifestyle company based at Nicholsons, we believe that when we make our outdoor space more beautiful, we will want to spend more time in our garden.

Heading up Rosara we have Jess, our Rosara Manager who has been with Rosara since the beginning, and Nadia who started with the company at the beginning of the year. Both are enjoying the start of a great business and love watching it reach new levels every month.

We live in a country with changeable weather and many of us find reasons not to venture outside. One of our biggest aims at Rosara is to be able to offer furniture and cushions that are durable for these weather conditions, come rain or shine.

Rosara has only just passed it’s first birthday, and has achieved more than what any of us expected in that time frame. We have featured at Countryfile Live 2016, RHS Chatsworth 2017, as well as taking our range to a Cheltenham pop up shop three times already.

Rosara was delighted to be awarded a 5 star trade stand award at the very first RHS Chatsworth show this June. Chatsworth was, for Rosara, filled with laughter, happiness and a touch of pride at the 5 stars!  Friends were made, ducks swam, stories shared, values reinforced: “exactly what we set out to do when we launched, and a perfect location in which to share it all”.

Our main supplier for our bespoke teak furniture is located in Jakarta, Indonesia. Liz, Jess and Freddie had the opportunity to visit Mr Widodo, his team and the factory out there. Our designs, which come from in house designers Liz and Freddie, were taken to Jakarta and can now be viewed in our showroom or online.

While we love to use suppliers abroad in Indonesia, India and Netherlands, we have a passion to use as many local businesses as possible. For example our champagne and copper planters are hand made in England. Richard Leech located in Hertfordshire and Alex Puddy located in Gloucestershire, both have such different but beautiful planters to offer.

When you are on your way through to the Yurt, be sure to have a look through our showroom. Whether you are just wandering through the shop or looking for a gift, be sure to pop your head through our little window as we are always happy to help and love to meet new customers and hear feedback if you have any.
