SOLD primitive wooden stool- $60
of all the wooden stools in the land, this gorgeous old one might be my favorite. well, for the moment anyway until i find my next favorite. here are some reasons why it currently sits atop my list: it's beefy. the seat is nearly 2 inches thick and looks like it was sliced right out of an old stump. it's beat up. yet its integrity is maintained in every way. it's interesting. it has a unique wire bracing system that adds a bit of industrial grit to its worn, wooden physique. it's old. it has a long and varied work history we'll never know but you can imagine what all its seen and done. it was found in the basement of a gorgeous mid-century home on the west side of town but clearly traces its origins to a much earlier time. and i like earlier times. 14" tall, legs span 16", and seat diameter is 14".
