When we first set eyes on the beautiful new contemporary Sitting Spiritually swing seat made in collaboration with furniture maker Simon Thomas Pirie, we were well and truly hooked. The collection includes the Floating Bench (shown below) and Swing Seat (above). Clean lines and stark contrast and combine beautifully with outstanding craftsmanship to create something truly special. Both pieces are made from natural as well as scorched oak, using the Japanese technique of Yakisugi.
A Dorset collaboration
We love that two local Dorset-based creatives have come together like this. Furniture maker Simon Thomas Pirie is from Bere Regis whilst Sitting Spiritually (who are listed in our directory) is based at Lyme Regis.
No surprises that the Floating Bench was 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 but you can place your order now.
Drift off to the coast for a few minutes and watch this short film showing this beautiful range beside crashing waves…
