Katie Blake Garden Furniture

Established in 1981 by chairman and founder Jack Whiteley, Glencrest Seatex Garden Furniture have become a leading manufacturing and UK trade supplier of Garden Furniture and garden accessories.

By priding ourselves on fantastic quality, superb design and generous proportions at great value for money, our brand "Katie Blake" has become renowned throughout the UK.

Having outgrown our premises in Wickford, we moved to our 45,000 sq. ft Warehouse/Offices & 3,500 sq. ft Showroom, Seatex House, in Eastwood, Southend.

The move allowed us to expand extensively and we have added to our comprehensive range of garden furniture Seville & Sandringham with NEW 2020 Henley, Millan, and Mayberry collections.

We exhibit our collections at Solex Summer Outdoor Living Exhibition at the NEC, Birmingham every year and continue to regularly exhibit at other prestigious Trade Shows throughout the UK. We have a full time Field Sales Team and our Showroom is open all year round;- Open Monday to Friday 9am-5pm (excluding bank holidays)

We have our own Katie Blake delivery trucks delivering nationwide and we use preferred national carriers. Our staff are very knowledgeable about our garden furniture products and are pleased to offer advice.

We give a full 10-year Guarantee against faulty workmanship for both the frames and the Rattan Weave.

Katie Blake Furniture is virtually maintenance free and requires very little or no effort to keep it fresh looking. A simple wash with warm soapy water or a pressure wash will bring the furniture back to its original condition. The frames are made from the highest quality aluminium which will not rust and our Katie Blake Rattan Weave is simply fantastic at shrugging off the harshest weather.

    We need a dining set and some loungers for around our pool and the Katie Blake Panama range suited our needs perfectly. The weave is stunning and we were pleased that the garden centre we bought it from delivered the day we ordered it. I am sure we will be back for more. Oh! the 10 year guarantee is the longest we have seen. Helped us make the final decision.

  • Dear Mr Potter, I am writing in appreciation of the outstanding customer service we have received from you Company. Initially we had the table of our garden furniture replaced under the guarantee. Due to various problems, there was a large degree of communication and items having to be delivered and returned. In spite of this, Sue Cribbs has dealt with our problem in a professional and courteous manner. A few weeks ago we noted that the covering on the chairs had also started to deteriorate. Once again, Sue has stepped up to the plate and solved the issue promptly and efficiently. Today we took delivery of four brand new chairs that match the new table perfectly and we are delighted. We have no reservation in recommending the quality and after sales service of Katie Blake Garden Furniture.

    Thank you so much for sending me the table-top suckers that I requested. It appears to be Sue who filled the order and invoice to whom I would like to say a special thanks, and thank you for not making any charge which I fully expected to make. Your customer service is exemplary. Kind regards....Robert Norton
