Who are we?

Backyard Lifestyle was founded in 2016 but has experience in the business that goes back over 20 years. We have been travelling to China since 1997 and have lived in China for several years, giving us a broad contact network. The company has developed into being a strong partner to our customers where our competence and experience combined with our local presence in China and Vietnam contributes to a prosperous business. Backyard Lifestyle sells containers directly to our customers under private label. Our team has extensive experience in developing and selling outdoor furniture, giving us a substantial knowledge of which products sell the best. We work closely together with our partners to design and develop specific collections on demand, and we also have our own designers that develops new items on a regular basis. We are highly adaptable and have a small, efficient organization with a strong network in China. In Ningbo, China we have production facilities, a showroom, and our own company, and in Vietnam we have a team to take care of quality control and supplier contacts.

Team Sweden and China

Guanxi is a chinese expression that means taking time to create relations for prosperous cooperation. Backyard Lifestyle puts great effort into upholding relations with current suppliers and keeping a dialogue with prospective new suppliers to secure production capacity. Quality control, follow-up of the delivery-process and product development are key parts of the daily work of our chinese team.

Product Development

Our office and showroom in China are located in the same building as our main factory. This is a big advantage when a customer is visiting as new products can be shown during the meeting and changes can be made as we speak, allowing the customer to evaluate them instantly.

Product development is done in collaboration with customers, where flexibility and customization are keywords. We have a large number of samples and suggestions of possible products, but customers often bring ideas or sketches which we together develop into a finished product.


We focus on outdoor dining and lounge furniture, parasolls and gazebos with aluminum frames for easy maintenance, sometimes with a touch of wood.


Most of our factories are located within a 3 hour-drive from our office in Ningbo, China which ensures that visiting them can be done often. Closeness to 2 of the worlds largest harbours makes transportation of goods easy.

Quality Control

Our team in China works closely with our factories in their production and visits them on a regular basis to ensure that product development and production goes according to plan. Diligent quality control is performed both by our own team and by external partners before shipping.


We, and our partners, holds FSC® (FSC-C089427 Byrd Lifestyle AB) and BSCI certificates.

Helping Others

It is important to give back to society. We support Team Rynkeby Göteborg in their work to raise money for children with severe diseases and also contribute to The Swedish Cancerfoundation on a regular basis.
