Our team of Design Specialists are ready to answer any of your questions and help inspire you from frame to finish.


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.

Choose from a selection of Signature and Distinctive hardwoods with natural finishes.

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.
