Owl Perch Stool Soars to Common Ground Fair

Posted on: September 18th, 2012 by Geoffrey Warner No Comments

This month, Geoffrey Warner Studio introduced the Owl Perch Stool and the Owl Bar Stool.  See and test Your seat on these new Stools at the Common Ground Fair in Unity, ME September 21-23. These new Owl products are a direct response to customers asking for taller stools for kitchens, offices, and family craft areas. The Owl Perch Stool uses a stationary steel base and the seat adjusts from 22” to 30”.  The all-wooden Owl Bar Stool may be ordered in customized heights from 25″-32″.

Both stools are designed with the ergonomic Owl Seat–available in cherry or walnut. The postural support holes relieve spine tension and allows sitting for hours without fatigue.

When asked about the colors for the Owl Perch, Geoffrey Warner explained “Our colors are inspired by Nanne Kennedy’s wonderful seacolors yarn –and we enjoy bringing lighthearted humor and out-of-the-box thinking to everything we do!” The Owl Perch base is available in six colors:  Foggy Morning Green, Her Eye’s in Blue, Night Owl Black, Lobstah Orange, Tropical Blue and Big Smile Red.

 

The New Owl Perch Stool adjusts from 22″-30″ and the base is available in six colors.

To see the Owl Perch being tested, view our video from the September 7th Gallery Open House:

(Owl Perch visible on video at the ~53-59 second mark.)

Thank you to Brooke Dojny & Sow’s Ear Winery for making our “In the Kitchen with Lobster & Wine…and Bar Stools a great success! And thank you to Archipelago for the music!

As always, thank you all for your continued support.  See you at the Common Ground Fair in Unity, Sept. 21-23  –or stop by our Stonington, Maine Studio after the Fair.

Walnut Sofa Tables from Start to Finish

Posted on: July 18th, 2012 by Geoffrey Warner 2 Comments

This week, Geoffrey Warner Studio was buzzing with the creation of two Live Edge Sofa Tables.  Constructed of fine walnut, these two book-match tables measured 60 in x 16-18 in x 29 in.

Geoff used European Walnut for the tops and American Walnut for the bases.  The knee braces not only add a beautiful design element, but also make the tables incredibly strong.  Geoff used mortise & floating tenon joinery throughout the tables.  Watch the table assembly….and start dreaming of the perfect live edge piece for your home!

As always, we appreciate your interest in our furniture!  Don’t forget to visit us at the Stonington Farmer’s Market on Fridays from 10-12 and see you this weekend July 21-22 at the Blue Hill Fine Craft Show.  Come try an Owl Stool!

Next stop is the Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors show–mark your calendars for August 10-12 in Rockland, ME
