Café Table & Bar Stool set, from Oak Barrel & vintage Tractor Seat
An ingenious design for a café table and 3 matching bar stools inspired & handcrafted from genuine French Oak wine barrels.
This project was inspired by the up-cycling ethos: breathing new life into old pieces where there is quality wood but perhaps less value on the item's original design. Such commissions challenge us to sensitively consider the materials we are working with & push our imagination & expertise so we create statement pieces that our clients cherish.
The table is made from original French Oak wine barrel components with 3 legs for optimum stabilization for uneven floors. The table top is finished with weather resistant oil.
The stools are ergonomically designed to match the table in height, and really are amazingly comfortable. They have fabricated steamed ash bands as foot rests & hand-turned oak bosses under the restored powder-coated cast iron seats, which are attached to the legs via a custom-made swiveling bearing system and set to exactly the right angle. Their three-leg design ensures they remain stable on uneven floors such as flagstones.
This entirely unique design is perfect for alfresco dining on the patio, on a terrace or for use in hospitality interiors & events. Should you like a variation on this, please get in touch with us.
