The Roberts Stool Combines Wood and Steel into an Elegant Object

A very brief description of the Roberts Stool might lead you to picture a fairly minimalist piece of furniture; however, Tronk Design has executed this seat with definite flair.

To make the perch component, either maple or walnut wood are cut and carved into gently curving shapes, subtly mimicking the form of a saddle. The seat is long and slender and narrows further at its two short ends. In these, handles have been cut out to enable the easy rearrangement of the sitting object in a room.

The sturdy base of the Roberts Stool is a metal frame that has been assembled from tubular steel. The pair of bent metal components that make up the stand broaden towards the floor for great stability and eye-catching lines. Added style is infused in the form of sharp carvings in the wood and vivid color options for the base.
