August 2nd First Friday and Dances with Owls

Posted on: July 30th, 2013 by Geoffrey Warner No Comments

Join us August 2nd for Stonington Galleries First Friday Open Gallery Night

Visit Geoffrey Warner Studio from 4pm-9pm  to enjoy our Owl Stools, Refreshments, & good company. Night Owl Music begins at 7pm with an Open Mic.

Acadia School of Traditional Music, recently held in Bar Harbor, was a great opportunity to see and hear some extremely talented musicians.  One of our favorite performances featured Vishtèn’s Pastelle and Emmanuelle LeBlanc who got a “leg-up” with Owl Stools.  Take a look at some great footwork:

Geoff Builds Expandable Dining Room Table

Posted on: June 11th, 2013 by Geoffrey Warner No Comments

Geoff’s Latest Furniture Design:  Last week Geoffrey Warner Studio completed a large Dining Room Table. This stunning cherry table has a 54″ diameter and when the 3 leaves are inserted, the table expands to 90″.

This custom wooden table will seat 6 to 12.  Owl Chairs in cherry are also being made to accompany the table.   Here’s a brief video of Geoff finishing the table: http://youtu.be/Edr0p9mOV10

Inspiration for the  tables base stems from nature and the art nouveau design period from over 100 years ago. The sawn knees and legs are hand-shaped round and hard edged in order to reveal a graceful flow of form, enhanced by the play of  light and shadow.

These are details that Geoff has refined and grown fond of  over the years, and now refers to as part of his design vocabulary.

 

Do you have a furniture wish list?  Geoff is now accepting new commissions.

Looking Ahead….Mark your calendar for the first Stonington Galleries First Friday, July 5th. GW Studio will host a grand event with music…more details coming soon.

As always, thank you for your interest in our custom & Owl Furniture.

Building Rolling Owl Stools

Posted on: October 11th, 2012 by Geoffrey Warner 6 Comments

You may think that you’re looking at Santa’s Workshop…

We’ve got a seat for you!

…and you’d be right, after all even the big guy needs helpers!  Geoff & the crew are busy getting ready for the holiday season.  The first batch of cherry & walnut seats are sanded and ready for their coats of natural tung oil.

In our new addition, we’re assembling the many Rolling Owl bases that just arrived from our Maine powder-coater. Each of the staff has a favorite color.  If Buddy the Elf were here, he’d ask “What’s your favorite color?” — Big Smile Red, Lobstah Orange, Her Eye’s in Blue, Night Owl Black, Tropical Blue or Foggy Morning Green?

Rolling Owl Stool bases just arrived from the powder-coater. Love those colors!

Polly loves to help!

Once the bases are assembled and the tung oil dries on each seat, the base is paired with either a walnut or cherry seat.  With the fall season in full swing the Lobstah Orange base with a walnut seat and the Foggy Morning Green with a walnut seat have been very popular!

For those who are not familiar with the Owl Stool, be sure to read the Anatomy of an Owl.  Our Owls are more than just a stool–they’re the best seat in house!  The postural support holes literally let you sit hours without fatigue.

 

As always, we appreciate your support and hope that you’re enjoying everything that the Fall season has to offer!

Geoff  & the Owl Team

NEXT OWL Stool Workshop is Wednesday 10/17/12 – call to register.

Our Studio is open year round, 10-4 Tues-Friday and other days by chance or appointment.   207.367.6555  ~ www.geoffreywarnerstudio.com
