Stopper Stool is the latest design in a collection of products linked by their tactile form in oak and brass detailing. Made from sustainable wood that is sourced directly from the Mills local to our workshop in Cornwall. The designs are true to the materials and work together to create a simple but beautiful product which are made with love and crafted by hand.

Id like to raise the money for this production so a limited edition batch can be created in one go, making it more cost effective which I can pass on to you, the backers. By selling direct it allows me to give the option to backers of personalising their stool (reward 5), making a great gift or present.

This edition of 100 stools will all be branded and given a unique number out of 100 ( e.g 1/100 ) on the underside, this is laser engraved into the surface. The 100 stools are available in a variety of reward packages and we have added the other products in the Stopper collection as a reward to support the campaign. All rewards can be delivered worldwide. 

The stools are a great multifunctional piece of furniture to have around and can be used as seating, side tables or the occasional foot up to get to that out of reach cupboard or change a lightbulb! We use them ourselves at home for extra guests at the dinner table or an occasional side table for the guest sofa-bed!  

 

 

 

 

Other products already in the collection are Stopper Boards (reward 2), a set of 4 different sized boards used to serve or cut food on.  Door Stoppers (reward 3) which are majestic lathed door weights. Both seen below in rewards.  These too continue the brass detailing and tactile feel which is throughout the collection.
