Outdoor Chaise Throws Some Sexy Curves

March 4, 2011 by

 

British designer, Tom Raffield’s Chaise Longue Number 4 is, according to the him, “as much a piece of art as it is a functional seat.”

When you sit in the chaise, you become a part of a showpiece in your environment.

The sensuous outdoor lounger is crafted of steam bent solid British Oak finished with Danish Oil, Beeswax and Carnauba wax. With his signature piece, Raffield demonstrates how wood can be used to make complex yet beautiful three-dimensional forms.

The Lounge Daddy

Raffield, whose work is created entirely from steam bent woods, has a clear interested in forms which loop and flip around forming delicious curves as demonstrated in both the design of Chaise Longue Number 4 and The Lounge Daddy, above.

Wooden Flowerpots for Indoor Gardens

Although only suitable for indoors, these lovely wooden flower pots are made from carefully coiled strips of FSC Ash or Oak (or a combination of Ash and Oak). Each one is hand made, finished with an environmentally friendly protective varnish, and signed by the maker at the artist’s workshop in Cornwall.

    OK, I love the comfy modern lines here and the little container would look really nice filled with soft scented blooms that would aid in drifting me off to La La Land …

    I absolutely LOVE the Tom Raffield pieces, esp. Chaise #4. They are, indeed, works of art! Does their price tag reflect that? Do you know if they are made in limited editions?
