Not your standard barstool or old wooden chair. This is a unique seat, a versatile heritage piece. A product with a rich history and a smart, innovative design to it. One that lies at the heart of the modern industrial design aesthetic in American furniture.

A design reminiscent of the cafeteria style communal tables found in early-20th-century, in private boarding schools and charter schools as well as factories. If you would like to learn more about their fabulous history here in America, please feel free to click here

Build these distinctive wall-mounted, all cast-iron stools into your vision for a bar or kitchen-island.

This is a smart alternative-seating solution – you save not only space & money but also time & headaches, while minimizing liability and wasted costs. You’ll never have to fix another broken wooden chair or stack another heavy barstool. 

The standard alder wood seat can be left raw for you to stain or paint to suit your own setting or environment.  IPE (Brazilian Walnut) is available and recommended for outdoor installations.

We also offer raw and finished oak as indoor options. All seats measure 12″ x 1 1/4″ thick except the IPE – 11″ x 1 1/2″ thick. The IPE seats are made from one solid piece and they will weather from outdoor elements. There may be fading or minor checking and while most clients prefer the natural patina, the seats can be periodically coated for additional protection.

– Stress tested to hold in excess of 1,000 pounds
– Ideal spacing is one Seat for Every 24″
– Easy in & out as each seat can swing 170 degrees
– Adjustable Stop Points for greater comfort & control
