Our Products - The Splendid Pavilion Company
“Unique, stylish tented pavilions that bring elegance and splendour to any setting”
The Splendid Pavilion Company creates beautiful canvas-roofed pavilions and gazebos, all individually designed and custom made to suit your requirements.
Historically intended for relaxation and pleasure, pavilions evoke images of lavish entertaining in the landscape gardens of the 18th-century aristocracy. These aesthetic structures were often designed as a focal point that provided an idyllic, pastoral refuge from the pressures of court life. Nowadays, a pavilion or gazebo brings an added dimension to the garden - a place to sit and contemplate, read, chat, or as a dramatic architectural backdrop for a garden party or wedding.
If you are looking for a really special and unique garden structure, our customised tent pavilions provide a flexible space for anything from private garden entertaining and elegant al fresco dining to stylish outdoor shelters for hotels, spas, pubs, restaurants and cafés.
Unlike conventional tents, our tented pavilions are free-standing and blend traditional materials with modern construction technology. The standard supporting structure is made of stainless steel with hand-forged decorative details, hardwood and traditional cotton canvas for the covering which is made in India and dyed in Scotland. Although semi-permanent, a pavilion tent does not usually require planning permission.
Bespoke Design Service
We offer a completely bespoke design service that allows you to create a uniquely individual tented pavilion. You can choose any colour, shape, decorative patterns and ornamental options you wish. We are happy to work with architects and garden designers to create a pavilion that will look spectacular in your chosen setting. From elaborate domed designs, inspired by Indian temples complete with filials, to elegant pyramid tents that can be used individually or linked together, all our pavilions are aesthetically pleasing.
