The Grebe Says... October 16 2014

The two latest pieces to be listed on the W&G site are both from the iconic G-Plan Brandon range.  We can look at them now and contemplate their simple lines and stylish good looks, but it's easy to forget that when these pieces were launched in 1953 they were revolutionary!  Before E Gomme invented G-Plan and created Brandon, Britain was stuck with bland utility furniture and overstuffed three piece suites - style wasn't even a consideration, never mind an option!  All that changed with G-Plan, and new era of creativity and innovation dawned - and the products of this era were so well made that 60 years later we can still enjoy them today.  Which is great for me, because it's always handy to have something nice and solid on which to build one's nest - and so Brandon, I salute you!
