Waxed Canvas & Oak Folding Stool - Kaufmann Mercantile

These handmade, stowable stools were inspired by those moments of rest after an expedition or adventure. Made from reclaimed oak, mostly from abandoned barns in Pennsylvania dating to the 1800s, the stool is infused with hundreds of years of history - the unique grain, original saw marks and nail holes in the wood tell their own story. 

To protect this storied wood, each stool is hand-finished and oiled with 100% tung oil (pressed from the Tung tree, indigenuous to China), which lends the wood a golden hue and makes it water-resistant. The X-frame opens up to a water-resistant, waxed canvas sling seat and folds up flat for easy storage and carry. 

The stools can be placed outside around the fire pit or in the garden, or used in the home as extra seating. 

Use & Care

Wipe down the stools periodically to keep clean and dry. Store inside to prolong the life of the stools. The canvas seat may need re-waxing after 5 to 10 years. 

Production & Design

Husband-wife team Margeaux and Walther Kent moved into a rambling 19th-century house in Philadelphia, and began to forage for vintage items to fit the character of their old home. Calling upon Walter's expertise in cabinet making and home restoration, they used mostly reclaimed materials to craft anything they could not find or buy - the first item being a bathtub caddy so that Margaux could read and journal during her bath. The couple's extensive catalogue of products reflects what they personally need for their home - a growing collection of items that fellow homeoweners have come to admire, too.
