An innovative chair designed by Joseph Boobier, mentored by the Simon Acres Group, will be delivered to kitchen and bathroom retailer Goodey and Howell. 

This chair will be delivered to the retailer’s Wellingborough showroom on Monday 12th April, with customers encouraged to come see it in their showroom.

The Resolution Chair, made to seat two people, will be used as a showroom display item. Customers will be encouraged to use it as part of the decision-making process in the showroom.  Joseph has been working with SAGL to bring his design to market with the support of the Furniture Makers’ Company.

The design inspiration behind the design is the importance of compromise in resolving conflict. This is based on his observations of some of the many political conflicts currently at play in the world today.

Designer Johnny Grey, a visiting professor of design and kitchen culture at Bucks New University, said: “Using this chair is a truly innovative sitting experience.

“It is not just a chair for the body but the mind too, so it embraces companionship, eye contact and elegant craftsmanship. A gift for any kitchen or home space where sociability is desired.”

Jim Shuttleworth from Goodey and Howell said: “The chair is stunning.

“It’s a beautiful piece of craftsmanship that will look great. It will also provide a talking point for our customers. I am so confident that it will be a huge success in the Wellingborough showroom. So much so, I made a second purchase for our Northampton showroom.”
