About AuthenTEAK

AuthenTEAK Outdoor Furniture is an owner-operated company featuring the foundation of a brick 'n mortar showroom, with a fully functional eCommerce Outdoor Living website.

AuthenTEAK Outdoor Furniture is the true definition of an owner-operated business, where ownership is visibly on-site virtually 365 days a year. When communicating with the showroom either in-person, on the phone, via email or with Live Chat, you’ll have almost a 50% chance of speaking to one of the owners. We do not outsource customer service. Nor do we have a complicated voice mail system. One call to our showroom will connect you to a live person, where your questions will be professionally answered. And remember, the owners of the company are always just one call away.

At AuthenTEAK, high-quality outdoor furniture, along with outstanding customer service is our top priority. We feature durable outdoor furniture, long-lasting grills, umbrellas in all shapes and sizes and fire pits to complement any outdoor living space. The products we represent are just the beginning as we’re committed to providing industry-leading service that lasts long after you’ve made your purchase. You’ll find that our knowledgeable, professional co-workers go out of their way to educate you about your options, as well as ensure that you are comfortable with your purchase.

We truly believe that our knowledgeable and service-oriented staff, along with our diverse product display, is the main reason we draw customers from not just from Atlanta, but from all corners of the country. AuthenTEAK’s dedication to customer service has been recognized industry-wide as evidence by our three Apollo Award nominations. The Apollo Awards, presented by the International Casual Furnishings Association, recognizes excellence in the field of outdoor furnishings. Finalists must demonstrate outstanding accomplishments as well as a commitment to customer service.

In addition to providing outstanding customer service, we also excel at “special order” projects where we help our customers design unique outdoor living spaces. We have thousands of fabrics options and numerous frame finishes ensuring that your outdoor space fits your own personal style. Simply call to speak with one of our design experts.

Our History

Co-owners Damon Fogel and Eric Brenner have come a long way since opening AuthenTEAK as a weekend-only business in 2004. AuthenTEAK first opened with a 1,200 sq. ft. location in downtown Atlanta in the historical Hasting Seeds Building.

Since opening their doors, AuthenTEAK has grown steadily and now has a 15,000 sq. ft. showroom in the West Midtown Design District of central Atlanta. Their destination location showroom is filled with durable and stylish outdoor furniture, grills and outdoor kitchens, outdoor rugs, umbrellas and accessories, in styles ranging from traditional to contemporary.

While AuthenTEAK started with their heritage teak furniture, they’ve since diversified to carry metal, stone, all-weather wicker woven and even recycled milk carton outdoor furniture from top names such as Kingsley-Bate, Barlow Tyrie, Poly-wood, Century, Gloster Furniture, Lane Venture and Windham Castings. AuthenTEAK prides itself on finding unique pieces from hard-to-find manufacturers that are handpicked for their quality, durability and value.

In 2006, AuthenTEAK expanded beyond the world of outdoor furniture and entered the BBQ grill and the Outdoor Kitchen industry with the addition of Lynx Professional Grills and Primo Smokers - both made in the U.S.A. In 2008, AuthenTEAK further expanded their grill line-up to include other industry leaders including Kamado Joe, Weber and Alfresco Grills. By the time 2012 rolled around AuthenTEAK featured Saber and Viking Professional Grills and Appliances.

In 2012, AuthenTEAK focused on building their trade relationships and co-chaired an event with The American Society of Interior Designers to bring together Industry Partners and interior designers. This event was held in March 2012, and brought together the first ever ASID Georgia tabletop event held in Atlanta with over 50 vendors that came to meet with interior design members. In October 2012, AuthenTEAK hosted over 150 guests for the ASID Distinguished Speaker Series Event.

AuthenTEAK’s evolution as an industry leader and innovator took another step forward in 2013 with the introduction of their Private Label collection. This new collection consists of Dining Sets, Sectionals and Chaise Loungers made of a stylish combination of Teak, Stainless Steel and Sling. AuthenTEAK also private labels their own collection of lightweight fiberglass planters in a variety of sizes, shapes and styles.

We appreciate your business!
