'Plank' Settle (Douglas Fir) (Painted) (Medium)

Sue Skeen
£6,700
Plank' Settle in solid Douglas Fir by Sue Skeen for The New Craftsmen. A modern interpretation of the old English settle, with a deep seat and a high back giving an inviting sense of enclosure.

Stylist and imaginer Sue Skeen has collaborated with the makers of The New Craftsmen to create a range of dining furniture for home and hospitality. Our shared vision was to develop a set of timeless designs that would encourage individuality and expression. The COMMON PARTS Collection consists of five shapes and integrates traditional craft skills, still practiced by makers across the British Isles - from leather and stone workers, to rush weavers and lacquerists. Bespoke options are available, including a raw or sealed wood finish. Each piece can also be hand-painted in a gloss finish, with a choice of 7 colours.
