Alifurn outdoor dining set up for grabs

What started out as a small project from home (more precisely from the garage) in 2011, has now turned into a thriving business in Ballito – Alifurn, high quality outdoor furniture manufacturers. Thirty-two-year old Tamsyn Ferreira is the owner of this proudly South African company.
“I come from a banking background. While I was on maternity leave, after having my first son, Ethen (5), I just could not face going back to the corporate lifestyle,” said Tamsyn, who comes from a Dolphin Coast entrepreneur family.
“My dad, Gary, has been running his own business for 30 years. When he saw an opportunity in the market, he suggested that, despite not knowing anything about furniture manufacturing, I should see what I could create with this business. This was a far cry from selling financial products (she laughs)! I would never have done it without him pushing me.”
Thanks to Tamsyn’s ethos – being local in every possible way – she has given 28 people an income, including 20 single moms as well as two deaf-mute men.
They also raise funds for community projects and schools such as Ithemba Labasha.
Alifurn is all about hand-made products – from assembling and welding the aluminium powder coated frame to weaving the UV protected High Density Polyethylene strands to create high quality, long lasting outdoor furniture.
“Our products have a three-year guarantee and unlike most imported outdoor furniture, which is made for a gentle European summer, our goods are made-to-last in this harsh, coastal climate.”
The best part is that the furniture is custom-made. You can choose anything from the colour, shape, height and even the seat covers and scatter cushions to create the best product for your lifestyle and needs.
