Our Story

Kobo Living is a trading name of Kobocrete Ltd and is a small family-run company that supplies outdoor garden furniture and lifestyle products across the UK.

It was founded by Kieran Overall-Barnes, who relocated his young family from East Anglia to Devon in 2015, to pursue a healthier more fulfilling lifestyle.

Yet his business idea started three years earlier when he purchased a concrete garden ornament for his mum for Mother’s Day. The generous gift sparked Kieran to take action.

He said “I’ve always dreamt of running my own company and always aspired to be a director since I started my working life. My business started by chance when I went to purchase an ornament for mum”.

Impressed with the quality of the product and seizing an opportunity for such items in the market, Kieran soon started trading and quickly benefitted from a lucky twist in fate. He said “There was an older gentleman who used to deliver to local garden centres and nurseries who was retiring and we were lucky enough to purchase his company, order book, and goodwill”.

Fast forward to 2022 and following the companies on going success and demand for their range of outdoor furniture products our sister company Kobo Living was launched in April 2022. Now with a dedicated office and small first floor showroom in Colyton, East Devon and a modern easy to use website with daily stock feed updates, Kobo Living is proud to be a featured Nova Outdoor Living stockist.

Kobo which stands for “Keep On Being Outstanding” relates to the overall vision and mission to offer the most outstanding customer satisfaction and to do everything to be as helpful as possible for their valued customers.

Now with five key staff members forming the Kobo Living team they are looking forward to future expansion and growth and aim to establish themselves as a leading local and national supplier of outdoor garden furniture and lifestyle products.
