I know finding the right barstools are tough, and that’s exactly why I keep my eyes out for anything remotely interesting or decent. Surname’s Scout Stools are more than decent, they’re downright perfect. No frills except for a brass or copper finish on the footrest, each stool is made from antique heart pine salvaged from dismantled New York area buildings. A gentle slope to the seat keeps your backside comfortable, and your wallet will be happy to see the price tag is just under the $300 mark.
Each stool is made by hand in Surname’s Long Island City workshop.
