GILLES & YADZJA
Owners

GILLES & YADZJA

Gilles & Yadzja have been happily married for over 50 years. Flamborough Patio all started over 40 years ago when Gilles family wanted a swing, well he went and purchased 3. Gilles started to assemble the swings in his front yard but never got to finish as passers-by kept stopping to admire the swings.
Being the entrepreneur that he is, Gilles sold the swings to his audience, and realizing that there was a gap in the market for quality outdoor furniture, bought more furniture, and started offering it to people with delivery and set up included in the price!
The rest as they say is history. Often working 14 hours a day, 7 days a week, If you’re looking for him and he’s not in his office he can often be found in one of the shops coming up with new Designs to make sure your Backyard Dreams become a Reality.
