How long have you been with Gaze Burvill?
It was 3 years in January
What is your role at Gaze Burvill?
I am the Design Manager
What is the best thing about working at Gaze Burvill?
The huge potential we have with the machines and skills of the team. Makes my job much more exciting and designs less limited.
What would you say is the hardest thing about your job?
The pinch points of the summer months. By nature we are a seasonal business and have to make the most of the British summer, so I have to work extra hard and long hours to ensure this happens. That’s not to say I hibernate in the winter… that’s for product R&D, new designs and planning of the much larger bespoke outdoor furniture projects ready for spring.
What is your most memorable moment since joining?
Witnessing a beautiful custom Splash L-shaped seat craned 30 floors up onto a Chelsea roof terrace in December 2016
What makes you proud to work here?
I feel proud to see the enjoyment of our clients when they receive their outdoor furniture and kitchens, compared to the first informal site visit
What is your favourite piece of furniture?
Splash Short Sofa. For me it embodies everything we do well – timeless design aesthetics, comfort and technical craftsmanship.
What are your inheritance tracks?
Here Comes The Sun – The Beatles
