When we first set eyes on the beautiful new Simon Thomas Pirie Contemporary range for bespoke swing and bench makers, Sitting Spiritually, we were well and truly hooked. The collection includes the Floating Bench (shown below) and Swing Seat (above). Clean lines and stark contrast (both pieces are made from natural as well as scorched oak, using the Japanese technique of Yakisugi) combine beautifully with outstanding craftsmanship to create something truly special.
This stunning range is a dorset-based collaboration – contemporary furniture maker and public artist Simon Thomas Pirie’s workshop is in Bere Regis, with Sitting Spiritually based by the coast at Lyme Regis.
It came as no surprise to hear that the Floating Bench has been shortlisted as Finalist for the RHS Chelsea Garden Product of the Year 2016. The range will officially launch at The Chelsea Flower Show this May (Stand RHW 369) but you can place your order now and beat the rush!
Drift off to the coast for a few minutes and watch the Sitting Spiritually film showing this beautiful range beside crashing waves…
