Yipee! Common Ground Fair: Sept. 20-22

Posted on: September 18th, 2013 by Geoffrey Warner No Comments

Join Geoff & Iana at the Common Ground Fair, September 20-22 in Unity, Maine.

This is one of The best fairs I’ve ever attended. The variety and talent of craftspeople, the quality of the education sessions, the fun of the livestock, and of course the delicious food, make the Common Ground Fair a memorable experience every year.  I, of course, also love the MUSIC and dancing…if I’m not in the booth….follow the music, I’ll have my guitar and fiddle with me!

The Common Ground Fair is an opportunity to reward Maine’s artists and entrepreneurs for following their heart and trying to make a living doing what they love!  It’s also time to reward yourself by bringing beautiful objects into your home, trying a new food–or learn about a new skill such as spinning, mushroom foraging or bee keeping! It’s a time to have an adventure for the senses, take a moment to watch and hear the kids giggling as they slide down the hill on their cardboard sleds, touch the gorgeous fleece and felt products, cheer for the parade, see the beautiful jewelry and paintings and taste something sweet or spicy.

The best way to enjoy the fair is to get a program paper in advance or visit the MOFGA website to review all the events.  The website allows you to bookmark your favorite events or sync them to your phone.  Be sure to also “schedule” some free time to wander…and warning, you may want to go more than one day once you see all the offerings!

When you get tired of walking, stop by the Geoffrey Warner Studio booth located in the Maine Marketplace tent.  We’ll have our selection of Owl Stools to help you relax your feet and your back.  And yes, similar to the other vendors, we will offer some show specials!  You can also order at the show and have the product shipped — a great way to hide the holiday gift for your special someone!

GWS Recieves MTI Grant for Ergonomic Study

Posted on: May 23rd, 2013 by Geoffrey Warner No Comments

Geoffrey Warner Studio is pleased to announce the receipt of a Maine Technology Institute (MTI) grant for the purpose of further exploring the ergonomic benefits of the Owl Stool.  The $5,000 grant was received from MTI/Capital and Commercialization for Research and Development.

The process of evaluating the Owl Stools began by delivering four stool versions to US Ergonomics, located in Sea Cliff, NY.  The versions vary by the angle of the seat and the contours of the edge of the seat.

Below is an image showing US Ergo staff testing Iana’s sit pressures on a Rolling Owl — notice the computer screen showing pressure points. The Study will evaluate comfort and the healthy postural support of our line of ergonomic Owl seating. We expect to receive the study results by mid summer.

Many of our customers who suffer from back and other related pains, have found they can sit for hours and receive great relief from the Owl. Visit our testimonial page for more information.

Show update: NYC & Baltimore

Posted on: April 12th, 2013 by Geoffrey Warner No Comments

When we last “spoke” we were headed to NYC for the Architectural Digest Show.  It was an amazing experience.  We met wonderful and interesting people and, of course, we enjoyed sharing the joy of finding just the right seat with everyone we met!  Below is a peak at Geoff & Iana in our booth.  The Rolling Owl Stools continue to be the most popular item!

Posted on: October 31st, 2012 by Geoffrey Warner No Comments

Characters welcome!  The conversation and joking never stops in our shop!  This week Geoff and Steve worked on several bar stools for our affiliate partner, Deb’s Natural Gourmet store, located in Concord, MA.  Here’s a behind-the-scenes peak at Geoff & Steve finishing the bar stools :

The stools are 26 inches in height and were made with walnut seats and ash legs.  This all-wooden stool was finished with two coats of natural tung oil.  The holes in the seats help create the perfect postural support.  Sit for hours without fidgeting!

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:
