Chris Eckersley is a fine art sculptor who has been involved in furniture design since the 1970's. He aims to make well crafted, carefully considered pieces designed to last.
In 2010 Chris set up the 'Bodging Milano' project, where 9 designer makers rediscovered the art of 'bodging'. which involved greenwood chair making in the ash woods of Herefordshire. These chairs were then taken to the Milan Furniture Fair.
Chris began working with Sitting Firm in 2008 suggesting they make contemporary Windsor chairs. He is responsible for the Arden, Coventry and Devon chairs in their current collection.
