recycled solid white oak, wine fermentation barrel staves, oak wood


This is Stil Novo Design’s exclusive solid white oak chest.
The top seat and the legs of this trunk are made with recycled oak from fermentation barrels.

Our Venice Chest is a perfect combination of practicality, comfort and sophistication; Perfect for storing and organizing it can be integrated in any room of the house as a unique and handy piece of home décor.

By using the natural arch of a stave from a hefty fermentation barrel, we are able to create this particularly smooth and ‘silky’ silhouette for the top seat and legs, while we use regular oak for the creation of the structure.

The outside of the cabinet is finished with a beautiful natural golden oak color, and the inner side with a rich cherry chocolate finish to complement the red wine staining of the underside of the staves. Color is customizable on request, just contact us for details :)

The Venice Chest measurements are about 40”X15” (top) and 20” height
(Each barrel stave is different so the size is approximate).

The solid wood of an oak wine or fermentation barrel has a very distinctive element of charm that is conveyed into every object we create.

Every individual barrel carries the signs of its unique history in every stave.

As no barrel band is the same, each piece might show natural imperfections, slight variations in color, grain & dimensions, all adding to the uniqueness of every item.

Each one is individually handcrafted, sanded back to its original wood and creatively reinvented.

Stil Novo’s philosophy has always been “Artistry and attention to detail".
We are a family business dedicated to create the highest quality woodcrafts and specialty pieces.

We love the fact that we are able to help the environment by recycling the raw material and to turn it into an object of ‘practical elegance’ at the same time.

We welcome your requests for customized orders, special commissions and personalized ideas.

As every piece is made to order, please allow about 5/6 weeks to manufacture.

My second stool. This one doesn't rock, and I like both styles equally. (They are used primarily on carpet here.) This time I went for the lighter, two-toned stain, and I love the more red tone that truly shows where the wood came from. Thank you to Camilla for great communication, and swift shipment.

My first purchase of the Empire Seat was so good, I immediately bought the Dome stool! It has a multitude of uses. I use it as a foot stool in front of the couch and at the computer. It is also a great seat for meditating. Just the right height to take the pressure off the hips and legs. Completely relaxing. nCustomer service is great! Shipping is fast and the packaging completely protective assuring the item arrives perfectly! I'll be a returning customer!
