Product Description

The Counter Stool or Round Stool has a solid teak seat with two metal rings - one at the foot of the stool and a smaller ring supporting the seat. The seat is gently hollowed to make seating comfortable.

The metal rings are made of bright flat steel bars and have been fabricated using the hot metal rolling process that was commonly used in the early to mid 20th century. In this method, a flat bar of steel is shaped into a circle; and a weld is made at the point the two ends meet. The visible but inconspicuous inch wide weld grinding mark in the rings is due to this. The original patina of the raw material (which comes as flat bars) is retained to give the rings a weathered look. The screws used to fix the metal to the wood are also of the type used a few decades ago, although we have upgraded the quality from mild steel to stainless steel.

Wood Finish Options

We offer this product in a choice of three wood finishes: Natural Teak, Dark Stain and Z4 Walnut.

For the Natural Teak finish, the wood is sanded and finished with hard wax oil to bring out the natural, golden-brown colour of the teak.

For the Dark Stain finish, a coat of water-based, teak stain is applied to give the wood a darker teak shade, followed by a coat of sealer.

For the Z4 Walnut finish, a proprietary one, the wood is hand-stained with a water-based walnut stain and then a coat of sealer is hand-applied.

Please note that each batch of teak is unique and actual shade may vary from the reference images.
