5 Old School Barstools
Made in Milwaukee from locally harvested walnut and assembled with old-school mortise and tenon joints, Misewell’s Poet Stool keeps it current with powder-coated recycled steel footrests.
Each Kingstown barstool is made from sustainably harvested hardwood sourced from forests in the Midwest and on the East Coast. The stool’s production marries traditional handcrafting techniques and modern machining methods, and the structural cross between the legs is made from castoffs and remnants of Studio Dunn’s other products.
Chabera disassembles and reconstructs the wood barstool archetype, inserting a diag-
onal stick through the seat and legs that functions as structural reinforcement, backrest, and coat hook.
- Frontways, sideways, backward, or leaning against the back. Breakfast, beers, or bitters. The versatile barstool is indeed a perfect place to perch.
