Long time friend Californian/Swede Gustaf Rooth just happens to be one of the best artists, designers, & master-craftsmen in the world. He has polished his craft designing & fabricating 1 of a kind, eco-ergonomic, high end furniture and art for the 2 decades I have known him. He was introduced to the idea of how much fine oak wood a wine barrel has 2 years ago and quickly perfected an iconic functional sculpture in the form of an ergonomic lounge chair.

He finally had one of his designs that could be replicated and still be a unique piece of art due to the individuality of every wine, whiskey and barrel.

With Gustaf being the energizer bunny, he has also built a full design haus to have the facilities to meet the demands of his heirloom quality functional art. Happy to help a close friend any way I can to get his 20 years in the making / overnight sensation start-up further off the ground through the great portal of Etsy.

I wouldn't be involved if the chairs weren't awesome, a beautiful sculpture and so shockingly comfortable. Hours fly by sitting reclined with a laptop when you have perfect posture. Makes the art lover and back happy.I have my favorite 3 digit number reserved for me with Gustaf. The number won't come up for about a year so that gives me time to try to get a barrel of my favorite wine : )

Do you have a favorite wine and access to the barrels? We can make chairs of those barrels for you to savor for generations.
