When Simon Burvill predicted at the start of the year that spending more time in our gardens would be a huge trend for 2020, little could he know that a countrywide lockdown was imminent. As the importance of having an outdoor space has grown, so has the interest in choosing exterior furniture – which is where Gaze Burvill comes in. Founded in 1993, the company makes the finest outdoor furniture and kitchens using prime grade, sustainably grown wood from well-managed forests. Every piece is designed to last for generations, adapting to the caprices of the climate and gently turning silver with time.
Good design and true originality that doesn’t compromise on craftsmanship or the eco-minded ethos is the byword at Gaze Burvill
Having a team that includes both designers and craftsmen enables Gaze Burvill to make custom alterations to individual pieces from its extensive range with ease, and also produce unique, bespoke, site-specific designs to a brief. Dimensions and detailing can be adjusted; customers often come looking for a solution to a specific outdoor furniture problem and in solving it, new creations are made. For instance, both the concept for the Broadwalk collection and the newest garden seat, the Wisley seat, came from a commission from the Royal Horticultural Society. Good design and true originality that doesn’t compromise on craftsmanship or the eco-minded ethos is the byword at this company whose outdoor furniture elevates any alfresco space.
