The Compton pieces are made with a woven resin fibre we call ‘all-weather wicker’ – it’s got very much the same look as natural rattan, but it’s happy being left outside and will make your life much easier (as well as having a longer lifespan).
How it feels
The Compton Armchair has quite a high seat, but is wide enough to be roomy. Although the frame’s firm and the cushions are supportive, you’ll still gently sink into it.
At the bottom of each leg, a section’s left bare to protect the weave from moisture, dirt and scuffs, and capped with plastic to make the chair easier to move.
Where we see it
Although Compton’s designed as a companion piece to our Compton modular seating, it’s also quite happy on its own as a balcony or garden armchair – its compact proportions are great in small spaces.
