Paul Tarvin launched Frontgate in 1991, with the vision of marketing a broad range of functional, high-quality products for the home and garden. His goal was to attain a level of service that would well exceed industry standards. The result was the Frontgate catalog, later joined by subsidiary titles including Grandin Road, The Outdoor Sourcebook, and Splash Pool & Spa. Although each catalog has a different focus, they all share a common mission that Paul insists upon: "To reward our customers with long-term value and product satisfaction for every purchase."
