Who We Are


In 2013 the Founder of Rase Outdoor Living, took a trip to the south of France to visit vineyards and taste some wine.  One of these vineyards had a luxurious aluminium pergola creating a beautiful seating and dining area where the visitors could relax and enjoy themselves.  Whilst sitting there with his friends, tasting and enjoying different wines in the warm French sunshine, he began looking at the pergola he was seated under and started to think what a wonderful thing to add to his home in England.   It was only a short step to then thinking “if I really want one of these, then many more people would love them too”. 

Because they were sitting there for so long, the evening started to draw in and the temperature began to drop.  The host quietly got up, pressed a button and within a few seconds the roof closed and the sides of the pergola came down transforming it into a warm cosy space where they could continue to relax and enjoy the moment.

The founder finished his holiday, returned home and in 2014 Rase Outdoor Living was born.

In 2018 we opened our showroom in the rural setting of Caistor where customer can come and view the wide range of pergolas we have on offer.  Our showrooms include 13 pergola designs and are dressed to show all the bespoke accessories that can be included in your dream pergola.  As we have grown, so too has our showroom and now when visiting you can also browse our outdoor kitchen, fire pits, fire tables and outdoor furniture.

Today we are still a family owned business providing a nationwide service by specialist in-house / onsite teams.  Headed by Jonathan Airey we try to offer one point of contact for your design experience.  Our small dedicated team of 6 will guide you from design though to installation.

For the last ten years we have solely concentrated on delivering the best bespoke aluminium pergolas but we have been increasingly asked by our customers for a one stop shop and have therefore added bespoke outdoor kitchens, fires, fire pits and outdoor furniture to our range giving our customers a unique option to build their dream outdoor space using one supplier.

Meet Jonathan at the showroom in Lincolnshire where he can provide expert advice on your purchase or alternatively you can visit our partner sites at Kitchen Architecture in Wilmslow or Oxford.
