The article on page 66 “Above the Rest, nominees meet their challenges head on”, describes the journey and history behind AuthenTEAK as we grew from a weekend-only business to being nominated AGAIN as a finalist in the 2011 Apollo Awards for the single store category! This was our second nomination and we are proud to share our clearly envisioned, four-pronged growth strategy via our retail showroom located in the West Midtown Design District in Atlanta, our online presence and trade & contract relationships.

The AG28 is a 10ft cantilever European style umbrella that creates an inviting dining atmosphere. Over 135 different solution dyed Sunbrella fabrics are available for this umbrella.
For over 45 years, Sunbrella has led the way in performance fabrics. What started out as a fabric used primarily for awnings on luxury homes and boats has evolved into a leader in quality and innovation in the outdoor furnishings industry. Sunbrella has been instrumental in the development of upholstery for outdoor furniture. The fabrics stay strong and vibrant, even through intense sunlight exposure and cleaning with bleach. So STOP worrying about stains and fading on your patio furniture, go ahead and get that white sofa you’ve always wanted.
The most important fact that most people don’t know about Sunbrella is that it’s environmentally friendly. There are no waste water from dyes like the other typical competitor fabrics. Sunbrella is GREENGUARD certified for indoor air quality if used in the home. A revolution is also occuring within the indoor furnishings industry. Several upper end furnishing boutiques have started offering Sunbrella fabrics for interior design projects due to it’s durability. Sunbrella furniture fabrics offer more patterns, colors and designs than any other performance fabric in the market. High profile fabric designers have been working with Sunbrella in recent years designing beautiful fabrics that are just as soft as cottons and smooth as silks. It’s amazing how Sunbrella has evolved. Come into AuthenTEAK’s showroom and look through all the great Sunbrella fabric samples or check us out on the web at www.authenteak.com.

It’s hard to even think about firepits when it’s 99 degrees outside BUT fall will be right around the corner. Have you considered incorporating a firepit into your outdoor space? Hanging out on your deck or patio on a cool fall evening with friends, sipping wine and enjoying their company would be so much more memorable with a firepit. The firepit industry has evolved into a subset of the outdoor furnishing industry. Several manufacturers, including R&R Living and Urban Fire, have cornered the market with their high quality and unique designs. R&R Living is an American made product which is 100% eco-friendly.Their steel is coated with a revolutionary polymer which will not tarnish, bleach, or burn in the sun and will survive the elements. They recycle all the scrap metal from their manufacturing process, and their shipping pallets are made with recycled wood scraps. As a potential buyer of a firepit you must determine whether natural gas or liquid propane best suits your needs. Some designs are more appropriate than others for use with liquid propane so be sure to ask your salesperson for advice when considering what works best with your outdoor living space.
Urban Fire II Bronze1
Urban Fire, is a superior quality product. Manufactured in Canada, their design will appeal more to the modern/contemporary consumer. Stainless steel is their focus and if you check out their website www.urbanfire.ca you can see the beautiful outdoor spaces that have been created using their product. Even though it’s been a hot summer several of our customers have already purchased their firepits to incorporate into their current outdoor projects and will be enjoying theirs when the first hint of fall is in the air. Stop by the showroom and see all the options and designs available!
Everyday we receive calls from all over the country inquiring about umbrellas. People are very serious about doing their research before purchasing anything these days. Times are tough and before a dollar is spent people want to know if they are spending wisely. AuthenTEAK offers Treasure Garden, Sun Garden, Shademaker and other top umbrella brands. Treasure Garden, in my opinion, is the best in the business with a great price point. There are literally thousands of size and color combinations available in the Treasure Garden product line. Many people have questions about which umbrella size should be used. A 9′ umbrella is most appropriate for up to a 60″ round table and chairs, an 11″ round for larger size tables. If you want more coverage around a 60″ grouping a 8′ x 11′ rectangular umbrella is really appropriate for rectangular tables up to 86″ or as a free-standing umbrella over deep seating or chaise lounges.
Treasure Garden Shademaker
The most common questions we are asked is “How long will an umbrella last?” This is a hard question to answer but it will depend on how well you take care of it. I have had customers call and say, “My umbrella broke! I left it open and with the snow pile on top it just snapped the pole!” I’m thinking HELLO!! That poor umbrella didn’t stand a chance. Take care of your umbrella and it will give you many wonderful years of shade service. A quick tip I tell all our customers that purchase outdoor umbrellas is to never leave an open umbrella unattended. Storms can “pop up” quickly so make sure to lower it when not in use. Utilizing an umbrella cover will also prolong the life of your umbrella and protect it from the elements in the winter and from the sun. There are several choices for canopy fabrics. The Sunbrella Acrylics are the best and will last the longest. Paying a little more for a higher grade fabric is a wise decision if you plan to have it for awhile. Treasure Garden also offers a replacement canopy if you ever want to change your decor or feel the need to replace what you have. Check out our website www.authenteak.com to see all of the manufacturers and options for a array of custom, as well as, quick ship umbrella options. Hope to see you soon!!!
