Life After Corkage Bar Stool + Ottoman

Hmm. What to do with 2,500 wine and champagne corks? Make an ottoman and barstool out of them and then sell it/them for $980 (I think they’re sold as a set, but I’ve got an email out to double check). Now, who has enough corks lying around to try a DIY version of this?

Whoa, update: it’s $980 each, not sold as set.

Sean Dix Factory Stool

I’d say this is a pretty good price for a modern stool, no? At 27″ high, it’s the right height for a high-ish counter or bar area and powder-coated steel means it can take a beating.

BCN Barstool

How often do you think of barstools as comfortable? Designers Harry & Camilla chose an industrial plastic to form a curved seat that has flex and give, and although I’m not sure how much ‘spring’ there is, it’s sure looks more comfortable than other barstools.

bottegaMontana Stools

The left walnut stool has a humble name yet is reminiscent of the Eames Time Life Stools (it follows that the price makes a little more sense when noting the cost of the Eames Stools). Also notable is their other colorful stools, some of which are outdoor friendly (thanks Jake!).

Scoop Stool by Turnstone

I like the idea behind this stool.

“One of the design goals for Turnstone’s Scoop Stool was to avoid competing with the architecture of a space. Inspired by a grain scoop, this casual stool is a perfect compliment to a modern home or business groupspace.”

Sodium white plastic seat, Platinum painted steel wire frame

Timber Stools

Metalic finish stools are available in chocolate, vanilla, pewter and bronze.

“The stools have a soft curve for comfort and the table’s flat surface holds a drink. At 17” high and 21” diameter, they’re happiest in multiples (like a forest), so think of them for your next project, or wherever people like to have a little fun. Timber Stools are produced using a Gelcoat finish. Gelcoat is a material used to provide a high quality finish on the visible surface of a fiber-reinforced composite material. The fiberglass understructure, provides the structural integrity, is also colored, incase severe scratching should reveal the understructure. Surface scratches can easily be buffed out with polishing compound. Many boats are produced with Gelcoat over fiberglass, and the Corvette sports-car exterior body has been produced with this type of material since its inception.

All metallic finishes are actual metal powders suspended in the Gelcoat top layer. Metallic finishes will further oxidize overtime adding to their beauty.”

Hee Outdoor Seating

I like these so much.

“Inspiration can come from anywhere, and in the case of Hee Welling, it was the interior of a refrigerator. More specifically, the shelves inside the refrigerator caught the eye of this industrial designer…
The durable powder coat finish makes the Hee Lounge suitable for indoor and outdoor use by protecting the solid steel underneath. The coating also provides a surprisingly soft seat, and gives a slight “give” to the surface.”

Available in White, Yellow, or Green.

Made of solid steel with a durable powder coat finish.
All are stackable.

Gubi Stools Leather

I think if I had a bar, I’d buy these barstools. Sure, they’re a bit pricey, but look at the shape! And read about the technique (from retromodern):

“The Gubi Stool is the very first industrial product based on an innovative technique of moulding 3-D veneer – a process invented in Germany by Dr. Achim Möller and developed by the Reholz GmbH Company. With all edges turned away from the human body, a soft organically shaped shell is formed, creating the characteristic “body” of the chair that comforts you and invites you to touch it.”

The Gubi stool is available in an oak or walnut shell with a seat laminated in dark brown or black leather. Frame is chromed steel.

Counter height (25.5″) and bar height (29.5″) are available; Bar height with walnut shells and dark brown leather are stocked while other configurations take about 8 weeks.
