Spade Chair — Natural Ash
Please Wait to be Seated by Faye Toogood

This piece is part of the AAVVGG Archive and not currently part of the collection.

The Spade chair harks back to the English rural tradition and an agricultural economy interleaved with everyday life.

With a background in art industry, the British-born Faye Toogood rejects the sentimental view of the countryside in favour of a celebration of hard-wearing functionality.

This hardy chair suggests the handle of a spade as well as the classic, three-legged milking stool. It’s a working piece. You can pile your towels on it in the bathroom, or unlace your muddy boots in the hallway. The shallow concave of the oval sit surface can be a stained Navy Blue, or left in its original, natural ash colour.
