‘Arvid’ – Walnut & Cotton Webbing Stool

arvid_lowI’ve always wanted to design/build a cotton webbing piece, so when I was inspired by Viking ships (while impatiently waiting for my favorite show, The Vikings, to return) I made this piece. ‘Arvid’ is my first made-to-order piece in my Etsy/Chairish shops & I’m currently building a pickled ash twin to this piece… I hope to make a whole Viking-inspired series of furniture :)

On a side note… didn’t know wether to list this piece as a stool or a bench… I think of benches as being longer, but when I think stool, I see footrest… oh, well, lol *where’s my coffee*

Antique Footstool Turned Pet Bed for Reagan

reagan_front_somb
Nothing brings me more joy than refinishing a piece of furniture with a loved one in mind… so when a great friend asked me if the antique stool turned pet bed could be reserved for her dog, Reagan, I was ecstatic to oblige! This stool has gorgeous bones, it just needed a cleaning, some oil, and it’s upholstery redone. I happened to come across a stunning vintage fisheye fabric a while back & it works perfectly for this little gem! Then, I took a ride to my local trophy shop to really set this piece off! A brass name plate was custom-engraved and I attached it with care, in hopes that Reagan would soon sniff there… ok, I need to back away from the Christmas bedtime stories, lol! Speaking of bedtime… ZZZzzzzzzzzzzz
