recycled oak wood, wine barrel staves


Our little Temple stool is entirely made of recycled oak wood from French wine barrels.
Although it was conceived as a footstool for classical guitar players, it has been often used by our customers as a child's stool, plant stand, meditation stool, side mini-table, or to cleverly place it under the feet when seated at the computer for an extended period of time, in order to guarantee better posture and support.
We find that it can easily be integrated in any room of the house as a distinctive and versatile piece of home decor.
The top and the sides are stained with the red wine previously held in the barrel and complemented with a rich ‘cherry chocolate’ finish.

The temple measurements are 13”X5-1/2” (for the top) and 7” height
(Each barrel stave is different so the size is approximate).

The solid wood of an oak wine 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 stave or 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.

By using the natural arch of a barrel stave we are able to create this particularly attractive silhouette of definite oriental flavor.

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

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.

As every piece is made to order, please allow about 4 to 5 weeks to manufacture.

Simple and charming! My 7 week old kitten immediately decided that it was perfect for her! Wonderful handmade piece that is peaceful in its appearance and stunning in the midst of the chaos that my home sometimes is! Beautiful craft. Thank You!

I love it! It's the perfect size for my grandbabies to enjoy as much as I do. I can't wait to order the taller stool so I have a set.
