Great Britain is such a crowded island that it is easy to overlook the many areas of natural beauty that make it such an amazingly varied place to live. With thousands of miles of coastland, woodlands and forests and the peaks of Snowdonia, the Lake District and the Highlands you are never too far from magnificent scenery.
It is easy to forget just how rugged and isolated some of these locations can be. One place where you are under no such illusion, however, is Rannoch Moor. One of Europe’s last remaining true wildernesses, it is a breathtaking landscape of remote, wild splendour. Many times we have lapped up the views from some of the surrounding mountains such as Beinn Dorain, Buachaille Etive Mor and Schiehallion, but its sheer vast empty magnificence was first brought home to me over 30 years ago when I walked the West Highland Way as a schoolboy with a group of friends. Having never before ventured into the Highlands, they were simply awe-struck by Rannoch Moor. Seeing it through their eyes, at turns forbidding as the rain lashed down and other-worldly as the sun came out, really illustrated how stunning a location it is and how fortunate we are to have such spaces where time seems to stand still.
Capturing this rugged beauty was our aim with the Fisk Rannoch Chaise. Fully upholstered in short, curly, dappled sheepskin and with feature antler legs, the result is a unique combination of the wild and the stylish – a chaise that can be the dominant centrepiece to the coolest of apartments or the ideal element in a chalet-chic scheme. As GQ say, it will “add a frisson of highland sophistication to your pad”. As with all our seating we believe that it is also unchallenged in terms of comfort. Whether you are reclining with a page-turner or simply grabbing forty winks, the Rannoch’s gently undulating form cradles. Indeed, close your eyes and you could almost be lying out on the moor itself.
