A New Life

The prototype for the Salix chair has been living in my daughter’s (age 4 and a half) bedroom for some time. Its wide seat meant it was ideal for pre-bedtime stories. She has rather outgrown it now - its a bit of a squash, so it has returned to the workshop, and up into our new office, where it will become part of the new story of Peter Lanyon Furniture.

It has been replaced by a rather functional desk, and a child’s chair, made especially for her many years ago, but only now the right size. She is using her desk to create her own magnificent stories of Pinky (the friendly monster) and The Bunnies, and Pinky and the Wolf.

My new apprentice Lulu and I have created an on-site office, so i can conduct my admin affairs during working hours, so freeing up precious family time.

We make both the (now smaller) Salix Chair to order, though we do currently have one in stock. Children’s chairs can be commissioned here, and make fabulous heirloom gifts.
