The Hardy series is a range of chairs and tables inspired by Thomas Hardy's poem Old Furniture, an ode to the sentimentality of furniture being handed down the generations.
“At the start of the poem Hardy reminisces about old family furniture passed down through generations and I drew parallels here with my own work.” Irwin explains.
Two chair typologies from the 19th century, Thomas Hardy's birth century, inspired its design: firstly the Captain's chair originally a low-backed wooden armchair and secondly, the Smokers bow, a low back Windsor, often used in smoking rooms, public houses, barbers shops, and cottages. Irwin's wood side table is reminiscent of this period as the soft curves are reflected in the piece
