Hold on to your Swing Seats

Sunday, March 20th, 2016

The collaboration between Simon Thomas Pirie and Sitting Spiritually got off to a great start recently when the Floating Bench, one of the key pieces in the new ‘Simon Thomas Pirie Contemporary Range’ was announced as a finalist in the ‘Chelsea Garden Product of the Year’ awards for 2016. So how did Sitting Spiritually celebrate this? Hold on to your luxury swing seats – all that’s needed was a Floating Bench, a Yakisugi Swing Seat, a break in the weather, the whole of Lyme Regis and a drone. Enjoy!

The ‘Simon Thomas Pirie Contemporary Range’ is exclusively available through Sitting Spiritually. For further details and prices click here.

The range will be officially launched at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show – 24 to 28 May 2016. You will find Sitting Spiritually and a friendly welcome at Stand RHW 369.

Celebration of Craftsmanship and Design

Sunday, July 31st, 2011

August see us taking part in Celebration of Craftsmanship and Design 2011, the most established contemporary furniture exhibition in Britain. This will be our 3rd CCD, we seem to participate every 4 years or so, no particular reason why – except perhaps it falls in August when we are often away.

We will be exhibiting a beautiful new pair of ‘Oryx2’ armchairs, so nice they made the cover of this years brochure for the event, and a table called ‘Banquet’ in bleached ash and elm.

This is the first year we will have taken part since Jason Heap took the show over from Betty Norbury. It will be interesting to see if it has changed in character much. Jason has brought lots of new ideas in and we are keen to take part, supporting him and the event. These showcase events for bespoke furniture are few and far between, the only other regular show of national importance has been the one that takes place at the Millinery Works in London, which is less established.

CCD shows established makers like us, but also through competitions and prizes shows the work of many new talented designers. This year there will be around 60 makers showing 200 pieces of work.

The exhibition runs from Saturday 20th to Monday 29th August 2011 and is open to the public from 10am till 4pm daily.
