The Tree Stools recall the communal atmosphere of sitting around the campfire, but are built for the most elegant silk-upholstered living room. Textiles mimic nature in their patterned randomness, while employing traditional quilting and embroidery techniques. The humanization of form lends a sense of charm. A couture-finished bark jacket of pin-tucked wool is concealing, insulating, even transformative, and reflects the costume aspect of dressing a home.
