Royal Botania


Royal Botania

Royal Botania has earned an acclaimed reputation for creating some of the most refined and diverse outdoor pieces in the world. Founded in 1992, Royal Botania is a company that consists of a small team creating pieces that successfully blend precision and functionality for customers devoted to aesthetic refinement looking to furnish their outdoor spaces. Royal Botania was founded by Kris Van Puyvelde to address the lack of refined luxury outdoor furniture as it was then limited to the indoors. Royal Botania crafts its pieces exclusively from Teakwood due to its characteristics that make it a prime selection for creating durable furniture. Thus, Royal Botania created its own Teakwood plantation in 2011 to help eliminate its carbon footprint. Royal Botania design is rooted in three key elements: aesthetics, ergonomics, and design, and they are known around the world for finding such synergy.

Overview & History

After surveying the furniture market of the 1990s, which was void of outdoor options, Co-founders Kris Van Puyvelde and Frank Boschman were compelled to start a company that would fill the gap. Both designers were inspired by the durability and quality Indonesian furniture made from Teak wood. Now creating Teak wood only pieces through their line, Royal Botania, over 800 people are employed, 50 people within the headquarters in Antwerp, to bring about these iconic luxury outdoor pieces.

In 2002, the company opened its own production plant outside of Bangkok, Thailand to source premium Teak wood from its natural region. After nearly 20 years of operation, the company launched Green Forest Plantation Co. and created a plantation of nearly 500 acres. This effort was born out of an intention to replenish the resources that it has used from the earth. Over 250,000 Teak trees were planted at the Green Forest Plantation between 2011-2014. Over the years, Royal Botania has grown to become the global leader in luxury outdoor furniture that it is today, all while remaining climate-conscious and quality-driven.
