Root ball stools

Color Theory

My latest variation of my tree parts obsession is root ball stools - the more squatty and gnarled the better.

Viva Terra used to have a very cool one (on sale no less), which has been replaced with the following one for $150. Pearl River Mart in SoHo carries the fat root ball stools for about $120. But don't try carrying it home on the train.

  1. wow, these are pretty amazing!
    thank you for your sweet comments, they really brightened my morning.

  2. That reminds me of all the ridiculous things I used to see people trying to cart on the subway in New York! One dude had an entire shopping cart full of stuff in one.

  3. These are beautiful. I like the room in the first two photos as well, by the way. Love that black and white wallpaper - and the way it's use above the picture rail. Very cool. This is my first visit to your blog and I'm enjoying it rather a lot!
