Beautiful sustainable outdoor furniture and kitchens, made by craft in Hampshire

Gaze Burvill: Country & Town Interiors Book 2023

The finest outdoor furniture in prime-grade oak, sourced from sustainable woodlands – that was Gaze Burvill’s mission from the outset. Thirty years later and the company’s purpose remains the same, with new designs in other native hardwoods too. Visually distinctive furniture and kitchens, all inviting to the touch, enhance both contemporary and traditional exterior spaces. Everything from the collections and tailored designs are made at the Hampshire workshop, which uses state-of-the-art technology alongside time-honoured skills by master craftsmen (such as steam bending), many of who trained with the company as apprentices. There is a great choice of garden seats – including the ‘Court Seat’ and ‘May Throne’, now design classics – and landscape pieces, such as tree seats and garden spirals. Dining tables can be paired with comfortable seating (at Gaze Burvill, comfort is key when designing a seat of any kind). Everything has been thoughtfully and beautifully designed and built for enduring performance. The newest addition to the collection is ‘Amity’, a seat made from British oak, which has just been awarded a prestigious Design Guild Mark by the Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers.

Oak outdoor table and chairs by Gaze Burvill

To celebrate the launch, Gaze Burvill has created a special edition of 100, which feature a beautiful oak leaf insignia carved into the seat back, and will donate £100 for each one sold to Action Oak, a charitable research initiative into oak health. Today, the company doesn’t only make outdoor furniture: its sister label, Sitting Firm, produces Windsor chairs and accompanying tables for interiors too, all made from British hardwoods, with much of the ash coming from the estate. It is one of a small number of places in the UK where craftsmen make these timeless pieces, albeit with a modern approach, taking forward craft traditions and marking a key chapter in England’s furniture-making story.
