The 'Bramley' Rocking Chair is a blend of aesthetic harmony and ergonomic comfort.
From the initial band saw shaping of the components, the piece is almost entirely hand made and finely fnished in natural oils. It is generally only available to commission allowing for customisation including tailoring the dimensions to individual requirements, decorative details, colour combinations and carved inscriptions. Examples may be tried in my Hampshire workshop by appointment and are sometimes available to purchase.
Client comments often include 'great lumbar support. good for my back', 'like a massage', 'beautiful', 'I just want to stroke the finish', 'nice gentle rocking action'

From an early age Mark was inspired by traditional woodwork in buildings, boats and furniture.
In his work, he has sought to interpret this influence and the Bramley rocking chair is the latest design to emerge out of the process.
Much consideration has gone into overall comfort including the seat shape, arm positions, back splats with moulded lumbar support, and balanced rockers.
The natural beauty of wood, complementary curves and carefully considered detailing all combine to create a sense of harmony and elegance.
Apart the initial shaping of components on a band saw, nearly all the work is hand done. This allows for bespoke customised dimensions and details to be incorporated.
As a gift, a commemoration, a celebration or simply for your own use and enjoyment, this piece will be a beautiful addition to a home, and an heirloom for generations.If you are considering a project please do get in touch
