Olive Armchair

Olive Armchair

Olive Armchair is a contemporary take on a timeless neoclassical chair silhouette, with modern materials and vibrant hues. Featuring its hand-shaped oak frame supporting low seating covered with rich olive cotton fabric.

Solid rubberwood legs complete this classic silhouette for a lasting appearance, while each upholstered element is sealed with moisture-resistant liners to protect from spills and wear-and-tear.

Early Life and Education

Olive Gibbs was born in St Thomas, a working-class parish west of Oxford. Her childhood experience under the domestic tyranny of her violent father left her sensitive to others’ positions while deeply committed to environmental preservation.

She was a tireless champion for equal educational opportunities for men and women alike, playing an instrumental role in saving nursery schools – becoming the first Labour councillor ever to do so – before later chairing Oxford Brookes University (which she now chairs).

Ruben Spannaus and she resided in southern California, Seattle and Elmhurst before 1978; during each location she became active in both church and community affairs – line dancing being her go-to activity to keep in shape while maintaining mental acuity.

Professional Career

At age 24, Olive earned her diploma from Columbia University Teachers College and became licensed to teach drawing in high schools shortly afterwards. Soon thereafter she moved to Maryville, Missouri, to establish the art program at fifth district normal school – starting a student art gallery as well as building relationships between local artists and art organizations in Maryville and around Missouri.

Gaetano Pesce created this chair for Serie Up that effortlessly blends mid-century silhouettes with modern color schemes to produce something truly distinctive. Crafted from solid blackbutt timber with fabric upholstery, its unique design works in most lounge room settings.

Achievement and Honors

Olive is widely respected for her contributions to business as a world-renowned international Management Development Specialist and Learning Development Consultant. She has held various roles within CIPD including Manchester Branch Chair, Vice Chair and Council Representative – plus contributing her time as Chairperson with Leeward Islands Peoples Association Manchester as well as mentoring a young entrepreneur’s start-up business through NatWest Entrepreneurial Spark program.

MBE was awarded to her as part of the Queen’s Birthday Honours List for Services to Exports in Professional Business – making it the highest honour that can be bestowed upon a woman in the UK. This accolade honors her commitment and success of building up her business, and will serve to inspire her team moving forward.
