It’s no secret that Terry Waters French Polishing appreciate beautiful wooden furniture design. The latest such example to come to our french polishers attention is this exquisite ODEChair by Jolyon Yates.

Also known as Breeze, and the Savana Rocking Chair III, Yates’ rocking chair is lovingly sculpted out of Birch wood and finished with a PU satin lacquer. This simple natural finish ensures that the rich wood tones are brought out to maximum effect, and also provides protection.

As a furniture artist it’s in keeping that Yates describes this piece as “…a lyrical poem that pays respect to that which inspires it”

“The subject of that respect is those who have lent thoughts, inspiration or kindness in the development of these pieces; friends and family, mother nature; the Atlantic Ocean; Northumberland; New Zealand; the rain.”

“Specifically, this ODE is to those that we meet and learn from on our journeys.”

“In a world of loveless volume manufacturing, ODEChair displays soul by reflecting the care and honesty with which they have been conceived and crafted.”

We couldn’t agree more. It’s this kind of inspirational use of wood that in turn inspires us as French polishers to want to provide the best French polishing service around. We hope to feature more of Yates’ designs in future blogs. With a repertoire that includes crafted wooden rocking chairs, stools, wall clocks, hanging mobiles, decorative decals, greetings cards, stamps and interior accessories, we have no doubt he’ll be featuring on our French polishing pages again very soon.
