The curved construction of it means that it is sprung – so whilst not exactly a rocking chair, it eases you into it and is extremely comfy even without cushions. I have to say, if that was my living room and my sea view I’d be using it more than occasionally!
For completeness you can see some more images below which show the rest of the room. The waney edged elm coffee table was also a bespoke piece created by us, the customer (who’s a famous song writer, but we’ll keep him anonymous here) had the engraved pewter plate which he wanted incorporated into the centre.
He also had a matching free-standing elm cabinet built, as you can see from those images the team has used the natural curves of the wood to create a gap between the doors which you use to open it. So no handles. The feedback we got on that was that the customer loved it but it kept distracting him when he was watching the TV as he liked looking at it so much.
From a a design point of view this set of photos demonstrates just how stunning natural hardwood furniture looks in a room where the rest of the colour scheme has been kept deliberately light and neutral.
