Sitting Firm Chairmakers Ltd was set up by master-craftsman Dave Green in 1989 to manufacture chairs which followed in the best British furniture craft traditions, and the company soon gained an international reputation for producing fine quality traditional Windsor Chairs. As word spread, Sitting Firm became the go-to centre of expertise for British designers who wanted to get their own chair concepts into production.
In February 2020 the manufacturing of Sitting Firm’s chairs was taken over by Gaze Burvill at their workshop in Hampshire. Over the decades, Gaze Burvill has honed a unique expertise in outdoor furniture making, melding the traditional skills of its craftspeople with the very best of modern production technology. This was the perfect progression for Sitting Firm, as Dave Green sought to gradually step down from running the business, and pass on his expertise and know-how to the next generation of chairmakers.
Today, a growing collection of Sitting Firm Windsor Chair designs is being made by a dedicated team of skilled craftspeople under the new name of Sitting Firm at Gaze Burvill.
