Before the days of manmade luxuries, humans relied on natural settings for necessities such as shelter, so when you think about it, Skram’s Wood Drop 14 Stool doesn’t seem such a far-fetched concept. Beauty in nature is never-ending, even with its ‘flaws,’ and Skram’s lead designer and owner, Jacob Marks, agrees.

Sifting through reclaimed or harvested wood, Marks looked for wood with character (read: cracks). According to, "he felt they broke up the visual heft of the wood, he played on their organic design for an even more powerful piece than had been irregularities-free." The Wood Drop 14 Stool is definitely a powerful piece and will enliven any home decor.
