About Offenbachers


Karl Offenbacher, who started his business as a pool maintenance and lifeguard services company, founded Offenbachers in 1960. The first Offenbachers Pool & Patio store opened in 1972, in Rockville, Maryland. The store carried pool chemicals and supplies, as well as small and unique patio furniture items. Eventually, Offenbachers added billiards, fireplaces and grills to its offerings, and expanded into several other locations in Maryland and Virginia.
Ultimately, Offenbachers became the largest outdoor leisure retailer in the Baltimore-Washington area, offering finely crafted furniture for outdoor entertaining, as well as umbrellas, bars, bar stools, and accessories. And with billiards and other indoor games in the mix, Offenbachers became a one-stop shop for leisure products — both indoor and outdoor.

Recent Developments

In February of 2017, the Offenbachers brand became part of Home Escapes, based in Herndon, Virginia. Home Escapes has been another Washington, DC area leader in outdoor leisure products since 1986, with a reputation for stellar customer service, and reasonably priced but top-notch products, including outdoor furniture, patio umbrellas, fire pits, hot tubs and swim spas.
With the addition of the Offenbachers brand, Home Escapes has also taken on many of Offenbachers’ lines of products, expanding its offerings to include an even larger selection of outdoor furniture, plus grills, billiards and other indoor games.
Home Escapes anticipates expanding into more locations in the near future. In the meantime, we encourage you to visit the new Home Escapes showroom in Herndon. We assure you that it will be worth your while.
