Furniture for the garden

After years of requests, I am delighted to introduce a collection of my garden furniture and pots inspired by my work around the world.

All my furniture is expertly joined using FSC (Forest Stewardship Council), or equivalent, timber and is available in natural hardwood, painted hardwood or painted softwood finish using Farrow & Ball paints.

The pots are handmade in Italy from Impruneta clay and are resistant to frost up to -30°C.

James Dorset Long Bench

Height: 116 cm at the centre.
Length: 230 cm
Depth: 55 cm

Inspired by the gently rolling hills of Dorset, this curved-backed bench will comfortably seat two people. Its solid design makes this bench just right for a country garden and it gives a relaxing, country feel in town. The soft curves of the arms are echoed in the scalloped seat, so much more comfortable than flat wood.

The James Dorset Long Bench can also be made to a smaller size of 150cm in length.

James Dorset Seat and Table

Height: 105 cm (at the centre)
Width: 56.6 cm
Depth: 55 cm

Height: 42 cm
Width: 56 cm
Length: 95.6 cm

Designed to complement the Dorset bench, these chairs have the same gentle curves and make an excellent companion to the coffee table, which is just the right height for taking tea, spreading weekend papers or even as a foot rest for two. These pieces can be easily moved and rearranged. For casual conversation, cluster chairs and tables together or place them along the edge of a terrace or courtyard for a more formal feeling.

The James Dorset Settle

Height: 153
Length: 155 cm
Depth: 54 cm

This settle is perfect for two people. It also makes an intimate seat for one, an ideal place to curl up with a book or take five, hard-earned minutes to gaze out over one’s garden. The beautifully detailed side panels are good for keeping scatter cushions in place and give a relaxed, Arts-and-Crafts character to this piece.

The Moreton Adirondack Chair

Height: 122 cm high at the centre.
Width: 75 cm wide (including the arms)
Depth: 102 cm deep (including arms and angled back)

Based on the classic American chair from the Adirondack Mountains, my interpretation offers a deep, relaxing seat with a luxuriously angled back and arms of a generous width for books, drinks or even a laptop computer. This chair looks wonderful near water and its unique back detail is both funky and fun.

The Gresgarth Highback Seat

Height: 170 cm high at the centre.
Width: 208 cm. wide (including the arms)

This delightfully outsized seat makes a statement in any garden. Wonderfully comfortable for three people, the Gresgarth Highback sits as happily in a meadow as beside a tennis court, perhaps backed by a yew hedge. It also makes a handsome eye catcher at the end of a vista. The delicate finials and scooped side rails give the seatback a finely worked finish.

The Dominique Steamer Armchair

Height: 107cm
Width: 58cm
Folded depth: 26cm

One of the most comfortable and stylish chairs, I have several of them at Gresgarth.

Natalia Seat

Height: 97.5 cm
Width: 159.5 cm
Depth: 54.5 cm

A traditional design of a comfortable seat, that would be fitting in any garden.

The Patricia Terracotta

Terracotta Tub an architectural feel that is equally beautiful as a single pot or used in multiples.  The tub’s generous size also gives it a wonderful scale in larger spaces, while lending it a focal point quality in smaller ones. The pot is made from the highest quality terracotta.  

Dimensions: 82cm high, 68cm internal diameter, Kg 80

The Snake Pot 

This classically inspired pot, handmade from the highest quality Italian terracotta, is a contemporary twist on the Renaissance tradition of using an entwined serpents motif on urns and vases.  Its height allows trailing plants to romantically cascade over the rim or to be planted with a sculptural plant for dramatic effect.  The Snake Pot’s tapering lines make it very elegant and easy to use anywhere.  The Snake Pot can be supplied with or without a terracotta base with rounded feet which provides a subtle drainage solution and elegant detail.

Dimensions: 76cm high, 65cm internal diameter, 68kg

Arabella Vaso elegante

The timeless lines of this elegant Italian terracotta pot, with raised beading for detail, give both a contemporary and classical feeling.  Vaso Arabella is made from a softly coloured, hand thrown terracotta, making it a perfect backdrop to plants and a fine compliment to architecture. Vaso Arabella can be supplied with or without a terracotta base, similar to that shown on the Snake Pot.

Dimensions: 68cm high, 65cm internal diameter, 53kg. 76cm high with saucer base underneath
