To make a pressed metal stool, you first need a hand-carved wood prototype.  We reversed the formula, making our de-engineered wood rendering including a crossbar for your feet and called it the Tonic Stool.  The shaped wood seat top is beveled with a debit and sits atop tapered and chamfered legs.  Smoothed out and elegant, Tonic expresses the glory of simplicity and beauty of prototypes.

Handmade in a selection of Signature and Distinctive hardwoods with our Roman and Williams Guild Living Finishes.
