Bitters Co. Sculpted Stools and Tables

The thick hand carved seats and backs of these stools gives an almost cushion-like quality to the wood. I also like the idea of the folding tables for tight spots or when an extra surface is needed.

favored reclaimed Douglas fir. Oil and wax finish, darkened metal legs.”

Sculpted Stools: “Pieces of
reclaimed Douglas fir are individually hand carved to create the seat and back rest of each stool. The metal has a darkened finish.” Available in three sizes, 15″(w/o back rest), 26″, 30″:

Molo – textile softseating by forsythe and macallen for molo

“Like the kraft paper version, each of the flexible honeycomb units of textile softseating is modular with magnetic end panels, allowing them to fan open into stools, or for any two or more of the same size pieces to be connected together to create long winding benches and unique seating topographies. the flexible nature and large diameter of the fanning loungers and 36”dia. stools, allows them to be leaned on top of one another, or against walls to create uniquely contoured organic shapes with backrests.

the combinations of joining, stacking and leaning the fanning stools, benches and loungers allows endless possibilities for creating seating environments and interior landscapes.

with use over time, the edges of the textile material will gently soften, creating a unique organic pattern within the crisp honeycomb geometry of the structure.”

This is perhaps one of the more expensive stools we’ve ever seen, but it’s such a great combination of colors that it’s easy to forget the price tag.

Seven simple silhouette turnings are stacked in alternating woods and colors to create elements that are both different and alike in each possible configuration.”
