Sitting Firm for John Lewis Packington Side Table, Blue/Natural

Product information

On the 30th of March 2010 Dave Green with Designer Chris Eckersley and seven other prospective Bodgers met up at Gudrun Leitz's outdoor workshop in Clissett Wood for six days for the ‘Bodging Milano’ project.

With no electricity (and therefore no power tools), no computers or drawing boards, and with very little protection against the elements, the group were removed from their comfort zone and quickly had to rethink their way of working. In the world of chair design this is probably as far back-to-basics as you can get!

The results were then shown with Designersblock at the Milan Furniture Fair, April 2010. From here the inspiration gathered momentum to design a new era of Windsor Chairs and so the Modern Windsors was born.

Dave Green has created the whole new range of tables and chairs for John Lewis by using the same traditional materials and techniques as they would have hundreds of years ago but by bringing them into the 21st Century.

Each piece is named after British woods from where a lot of our timber is sourced and replenished: Melbury Wood in Dorset, Glenmore Forest in Scotland, Packington Wood in Leicestershire and Rushmore Forest in Lincolnshire. The range is made only from English ash and British elm.

Please note: Not all of our ranges are on display in our furniture departments. Please callyour nearest John Lewisto check before you visit.

Q & As

Rated 5 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful table I've never been inspired to write a review before, but this table is really beautiful! The wood and the craftsmanship are amazing. So crafted, yet practical. It is substantial, but elegant. It's shape and size make it very versatile. I considered buying it for some time, as it seemed quite expensive. Also, it is difficult to realise the quality of the wood and design online. However, I'm so glad that we did, as I'm sure we will get many years pleasure and use from it. 12 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A quirky addition This side table is such a quirky addition to a room. Guests to my home don't know whether it is a stool or a table but all agree that it lends an alternative touch to the room. The coloured legs are fun and the natural wooden top adds an earthy feel that encourages visitors to touch the wood and admire the grain. 06 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful table Bought this to use in a Conranesque lounge. It is beautifully-made and looks lovely. Totally agree with the reviewer who said it's likely to be an antique of the future. 09 March 2014
