The sculptor Eric Gill was a long-time resident of the Chiltern Hills, the area in England most famed for its Windsor chairmaking traditions.
The Gill chair takes cues from its namesake’s soft, chiseled forms and reprises key elements in the history of the Windsor chair. From the cleaned-up ‘splat’ sitting between two tapered spindles to the steam-bent crinoline stretcher under the seat, Gill couldn’t be any more traditional—or current.
We’ve launched the Gill chair in a celebratory medley of English timbers—stunning olive ash on the seat, back rest and steam-bent stretcher, ripple sycamore for the splat and tapered stretchers and beech for the spindles and legs. Gill is also available in two other timber choices—sweet chestnut (the seat, back rest and legs) and cherry (splat and stretchers) and pale ash.
Our pieces are hand finished in a semi-matt hard wax oil, which is both durable and environmentally sound. And all Goodfield furniture is proudly made in England.
