A taste of Spain in Devon…..

Javier Echavarri joined us in February 2010 seeking a change of direction after a number of years in property development. After successfully completing a series of set projects, Javier has spent the last few months designing and making his own furniture. He is now bringing his Spanish influence into our Devon workshop with these two beautiful, stylish chairs. Created using just two components they produce a very powerful image. Not all modern chairs are as comfortable to use as they are to look at, but Javier has achieved it at his first attempt.
