Its name comes from our original Sugar Stool design, created from antique heart pine beams salvaged from Brooklyn's historic sugar refinery along Williamsburg's East River.
Our Sugar Stools are crafted in small batches at our Pennsylvania factory—come behind the scenes with our team as we highlight the process.
IN STOCK NOW
Antique heart pine beams are acquired from timbers of century old buildings, many of which were former textile mills and warehouses. Heart pine is extremely stable and has rich tones of amber and gold, making it the perfect foundation for our Sugar Stools.
THE CNC PROCESS
After flattening both ends of the beam, a CNC machine precision-cuts a faceted hex design into the top end.
Next, the beams are taken into the wood shop where each piece is chain sawn into a tapered, freeform profile, making each stool unique.
All sides, including textural sawcuts are sanded. A non-toxic clear coat is applied, revealing each stool's stunning wood grain. Finally, each piece is assembled with foot blocks and tagged with a brass Uhuru authenticity tag.
