POP! “The Swinger”, Sister of “Crazy Dave” punchy and modern, an twister and shaker, with her tapered seat leading you into the curved backrest, shaped to look great and give you support in all the right places. “The Swinger” is a sleek, sexy and affordable dining chair. In a set of chairs she will only cost you Eleven Hundred Pounds £1100 as a single feature chair for that special place she will be Thirteen Hundred Pounds £1300. Seen here in English Sycamore with a subtle wax polish to finish. She is also available in other timbers to special order.

Designer Chair “Andromeda” led to “Perseus“.

Perseus is probably the most complex and technically difficult designer chair that we have ever made. Daren Millman created a wonderful chair back as I wanted to echo the idea of smoke and sensuality, using thin laminated forms carefully fitted to each other to make a strong, resilient, back.

“NOT ALL DESIGNS HAVE A CUSTOMER INVOLVED WITH THEM.”

Andromeda and Perseus led to a whole family of designer chairs. First of all came “Older Brother“, then “Crazy Dave“, “The Swinger“, the “Sleeping Baby” Rocker and the “Xzen” Chair.

All of these were chairs designed to fit comfortably in a modern home; to be a handmade contribution to modern living in an age when everything is outsourced to Asia and cut, without a craftsman’s care, on a CNC machine.
