Why we love this product

The Govan Desk Chair, along with its matching Executive Govan Desk, is ideal for any study or office space.

This strong and elegantly simple design is handcrafted using a combination of traditional and modern techniques, a loving nod to the Glaswegian borough of Govan with its proud history of construction (shipbuilding to be precise).

The maker’s inspiration of geometric shapes is clearly demonstrated in the Govan Desk Chair’s design. The rotating back is perfect for lumbar support when upright and working but equally as comfortable slightly reclined with a tumbler of whisky in hand after a long day’s work.
