Springing from a very simple idea that the backrest and arm could be moulded from one piece and carry the structure for the four chair legs. This simplified and boiled down design is both expressive of its structure and inviting to sit in.

The way it is made means that it is solid and strong and it is also very comfortable because the structure allows for movement and flex.

Woodturning is central to British furniture craft, and turned legs give our Roundwood pieces their distinctive character. There is a nice detail where the turned legs join the top forming a delicate and expressive profile. As well as the tapering lathe-turned legs Roundwood combines two contrasting timbers. The legs and frames from white Oak are offset by the rich dark Walnut doors and side panels.

 

Table and cabinet sketch

The Roundwood dining table has our “spring leaf” extension mechanism. Our innovative design allows for the central extension leaf to be simply pop up from the middle of the table once the outer leaves have been opened. It is much more elegant and easier to use than the traditional methods of extending a table with no more trapped fingers and swearing as the table is extended.

ORB

Design: John Weaver

Once a common detail of British classical furniture, John has re-imagined the ball foot for the 21st century. As a practical and uplifting decorative motif, the ball was recognized by mid century designers as an eye catching component whether in hall stands, clock surrounds, chairs or tables.

LEAP

Design: Ben Fowler

The top is Glass and the structure depends upon the frame and glass locking together with gravity. The table is dynamic and light and inspires one to leap at the task in hand.

LEAN

Design: Simon Pengelly

Lean as its name suggests, riffs on the idea of a raked leg. Simon has taken this classic idea, to its natural conclusion by making a series of products which are entirely defined by the angle of the leg. The end grain runs throughout the tops, tying everything together beautifully.

MANX

Design: Ben Fowler

A three legged table taking its name from the famous Isle of Man triskelion. The three nesting sections emphasise the different wood grains and colours as they sweep round the tops of the tables supported by legs, curved to match the top.
