Drawing on inspiration from traditional Welsh vernacular furniture, our 'Tenby' stool has been constructed in a light ash wood to create a stunning contemporary finish that would fit into any home.

  • Made next door to our studio in Tenby, Sergeant's Lane, by master furniture maker Alex Macdonald
  • Made using time honoured joinery methods in a contemporary style
  • Three angled legs create a good balance 
  • A triangular 'knot' design on the seat, in a ribbon effect, creating a hand hole in the middle (making it very easy to carry around)
  • Professionally finished with plant-based, solvent free oil that reveals the beautiful grain pattern in the wood
  • Could be used as a stool, or a side table
  • Stamped with the maker's mark underneath the seat
  • Dimensions:  Height = 40cm; Diameter of seat = 40cm.
  • Delivery:  Please select delivery option

The inspiration:  Milking stools are a traditional part of Welsh vernacular furniture. Originally used to milk cows in the field or in the cowshed - three legs were common as they are more stable on uneven ground. It was important they were light and small for easy carrying. Later, these little stools could be found in most Welsh cottages in front of the fire, for a cosy place to sit and warm up. 

About the maker: Alex Macdonald works from the heart of Tenby to create his collection of domestic furniture. He has been designing and making furniture since 1993 and mainly uses wood moulding techniques. Through the design process Macdonald tries to understand and exploit the natural qualities of the materials he works with. His designs often have a light visual appearance and are made of non-exotic woods such as maple, beech, laminate or plywood. His furniture is made with ease of manufacture in mind. Alex's work has been exhibited in Japan, Paris, Italy and London.

My sister purchased this stool for my birthday. I use it to sit on whilst I paint. It’s a good natural seat height and is comfy. Aside from its purpose, it’s a beautiful well made stool which is nicer in the flesh when you can admire the grain of the wood in what is clearly carefully selected pieces of timber. I recommend it highly.I am a repeat offender’ when it comes to Welsh Otter’s delights. But that appreciation is hard earned ! MLB
