Twosome love seat

Faye Toogood | One Tree


A large loveseat pockmarked with beautiful imperfections and cracks. The section chosen for the piece is the y-shape junction at the centre of the tree, where one trunk splits into two. The result is an impressive seat, imbued with symbolism and featuring a winding footprint that elegantly meets the floor. The bark has been removed and the surface has been lovingly worked by hand, revealing delicate lines and cavities all over.

This piece is part of SCP's One Tree project, which sees the repurposing of a dying ash tree from Sheridan Coakley’s garden. It’s a project that focuses on wood: how we grow it, use it, and secure its future. The One Tree project seeks to create one-off objects of beauty, which will both retain the carbon from the tree and give new material life to something which would have otherwise disappeared.

Product Information

When SCP founder Sheridan Coakley discovered that one of the beautiful ash trees in his garden was suffering from Ash dieback and would have to be felled, he had an idea. Rather than chop it down and make it into firewood, why not invite a set of like-minded creatives to see what they could make out of the tree? And with that simple idea, the One Tree project was born. The One Tree project showcases a range of different objects, by a diverse and previously unconnected group of creatives. Read more >
