This simple-yet-elegant table and bench combo is perfect for relaxed meals, writing or listening to beautiful music. It’s named for Ethel Smyth, the first female composer to be awarded a DBE. The strong legs are made from solid wood, and the tops from hand-sanded Pippy Oak heartwood, which comes from salvaged trees. Style andsubstance, in one beautiful package.
Ethel’s father tried to squelch her desire for a career in music, but she was determined to become a composer. She wrote operas, chamber music, orchestral and choral works, until hearing loss ended her career. Undeterred, she took up writing and wrote 10 successful books. She was also dedicated to the suffragette movement, even serving time in Holloway Prison for the cause. A lesbian icon, Ethel had several passionate love affairs with women over the years. She was also a skilled horse-rider, tennis player and golfer.
