"Iconic outdoor furniture that celebrates joie de vivre."
Fermob is a combination of the French words ‘fer’ meaning iron and ‘mob’ a shortening of ‘mobilier’ or furniture. The company, which originated as a craftsman’s workshop in the late 18th century, had the fortuitous idea of taking its skill in making iron architectural features and applying it to the making of garden furniture. If you’ve ever been in France, chances are you’ve sat on, or at least seen, a Fermob chair! Dotted around the parks and cafes are the iconic metal chairs made by Fermob that the world has come to love including folding Bistro chairs and tables and Luxembourg chairs, which were initially created for the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris. The Bistro chair was invented in the late 1800s at around the same time as the Eiffel Tower was constructed. Just like the famous tower, the Fermob Bistro chair has become symbolic of Paris life. All Fermob products are made in France at the Thoissey factory. Stringent quality control is carried out at all stages of the production process and each product is signed off by its inspector. This personal responsibility ensures a high quality finish and differentiates Fermob from mass production competitors. Concern for the environment has long been an essential part of the DNA of Fermob. The furniture is largely made of metal which is globally recyclable. Paint finishes are solvent free and applied in a zero release facility, ensuring the health of employees, consumers and the environment are not adversely affected.
