'Rhodri' Four Legged Stool - Welsh OakWelsh Otter
Available to order with 4 working day delivery in the UK.
Drawing on inspiration from traditional Welsh vernacular furniture, our beautifully constructed Welsh oak four-legged stool 'Rhodri' is perfect for use as an occasional seat or as a small side table.
- 'Rhodri' is an ancient Welsh name that also has links to roundness or wheels - reflecting the circular top of this little stool perfectly.
- Our stools are crafted using time honoured joinery methods in a contemporary style.
- Four angled legs crafted with mortice and tenon construction. A laburnum wood wedge forms a strong yet decorative joint.
- The timber top is finished with softly rounded edges that are pleasing to touch.
- Made from locally sourced sustainable Welsh oak and laburnum wood. For each order, will be able to provide you with information about the particular tree that was used to make your stool. All our timber comes from trees that have to be felled for reasons such as wind damage, or to make space for power cables.
- Professionally finished in house with water-based, solvent free lacquer that reveals the beautiful grain pattern in the wood.
- An optional upholstered seat is available made from a choice of Welsh tapestry fabric. This seat pad can be removed and is attached to the top of the stool by a Velcro strap. Please select using the drop down.
- Part of our 'Wood and Weave' collaboration with Daniel Harrison Furniture - we use complimentary Welsh wool tapestry and local timber to create beautifully balanced furniture.
- A smaller three legged stool 'Llinos' is also available in the collection.
- Dimensions: Height is 44cm without pad, 47cm with pad. Diameter of seat = 30cm.
- Delivery: This item will be delivered within five working days.
The inspiration: This design has evolved from the smaller three-legged milking stool, incorporating a fourth leg that allows for greater height in relation to its proportions. The same time honoured joinery techniques are used as in the three-legged ‘Llino’s’ design. These useful stools are a great addition to the modern home; from occasional sitting at the dressing table, as a small side table, or even to provide extra places at a party.
