trio metal stools. "ask any geometry teacher: three legs on a stool are actually more stable than four, as shown by the time-honored design of these vintage warehouse stools. they’re solid metal, cross-braced and riveted, yet lightweight for easy mobility, with a colorfully weathered patina. use as plant stands or small side tables too."
napa style wine barrel sink. "this clever sink is made from a wine barrel, fine-grain white oak and metal, carefully reconditioned, cleaned and sealed. it features a garden hose connector (so you can set it up just about anywhere) and a 6’ output hose for reusing sink water on your plants.
old vine round outdoor dining table. "these 80- to 100-year-old trunks come from california cabernet and chardonnay vines that have stopped producing grapes." how neat is that?
louis XV bombe chest. "the french origins of bombé (“rounded”) furniture trace back to the early 1700s, when louis XV inspired designers to create more artful, stylish pieces. our tribute chest and console feature meticulously finished frames, drawers and legs with antiqued brass hardware."
olive grove rocking chair. "made entirely from vintage farm implements, the seat's natural curves are formed from antique wagon-wheel rims."
this vintage silverware dating back to the 20's and 30's, polished to perfection, gathered from estate sales vintage markets, antique stores all over the u.s. and europe, can be bought be the pound. how fantastic is that to have a completely eclectic collection for your home and your guests? i am in love with this idea :)
barrel stave bistro table. "evocative of busy, space-challenged bistros, this efficient and elegant barrel stave table is crafted with two shelves for storage and a smooth top for rustic dining. the gracefully arched legs are made of genuine barrel staves, and the bottom shelves are trimmed with authentic galvanized bands.
vintage door knob wine stoppers, monogrammed for you or a friend as a gift!
beautifully stylish woven leather bench.
michael chiarello "draws on his southern italian roots, napa valley way of life, and views on living sustainably to inspire friends and family to gather around the table and create meaningful traditions in their own lives."
i've never been to california wine country but have always love the look of some of the designs and styles that come out of this area, this experience and it's materials. what better a concept than recycling old wine barrels, metals and hardware for use on functioning, eye pleasing pieces for your home or commercial space.
are you drawn to wine country elements of design, the look, the style? i particurally was drawn to their outdoor pieces as they are so completely natural in material anyway, they just seemed to belong outdoors where we gather, dine, converse and of course drink wine! enjoy and happy monday everyone :)
