Hummock carries a tradition of gathering and brings together two proud and distinct stool lineages. Turkish ottomans tend to be rounded, or completely upholstered. Japanese vernacular stools are harder, more formally-defined boxes. Hummock’s hardwood box has notched corners and wood plug detail. Rabbeted butt joint base finishes with a small kick and quarter round shoe moulding and topped with a thick, smooth deluxe cushion.  The finished interior has a top that is removable for storage.

Handmade in a selection of Signature and Distinctive hardwoods with our Roman and Williams Guild Living Finishes. Click to view the Fabric Catalogue.

Stephen Alesch and Robin Standefer’s Roman and Williams Guild Original Designs are each branded with our insignia and delivered with a Certificate of Authenticity.
