The Ringo Stool features a gorgeous apple-inspired design that pays homage to the designer's great-grandfather, and the ladders he used to harvest apples. The stool is the perfect model to embody the process of apple harvesting. The entirely wooden stool features a unique seat made of six apple-shaped elements. Each individual "apple" was carved by a local craftsman who worked tirelessly to create components that were both curvy and smooth to be reminiscent of the fruit.

The stools are as artful as they are functional, offering the consumer a product with a purpose that extends past its function. The Ringo Stool is a piece of emotional furniture, that can deepen the consumer-product bond.
