Best in Show at Baltimore FF Show

Posted on: May 17th, 2013 by Geoffrey Warner No Comments

Earlier this week, KL Communications and Rockler Woodworking announced that Geoffrey Warner Studio is a 5th Annual Mid-Atlantic Fine Furnishings Show – Best in Show award recipient.

A panel of Baltimore area industry professionals reviewed the show’s talented exhibitors, their work, and booth layouts to select the finalists in nine categories. Warner received the prestigious Marc Harrison Award for Marketing Excellence. The judges were particularly impressed by Warner’s advertisements. “The Owl Collection ads are whimsical and capture the spirit of the product.”

When interviewed, Geoff Warner replied “We are thrilled with this honor. I have a passion for humor and enjoyed the process of designing the original Owl Stool as well as working with my team to create the messaging that all of our Owl Furniture is both fun and comfortable.”

Geoffrey Warner Studio is located in Stonington, Maine.  Their owlfurniture.com website also illustrates their life-is-fun attitude– even the names of their base colors are whimsical: Big Smile Red, Night Owl Black and Lobstah Orange are a few examples!

One of the Show’s banner image depicts Geoff’s student’s at the Stonington Stone Cutter Statue after a workshop class–how often can a piece of furniture double as a mask!

The Show judges included Phil Adams, ASID, CID of Floors Etc., Catherine Mallette of Chesapeake Home + Living Magazine, and Jeffrey A. Penza, AIA, LEED AP of Penza Bailey Architects.

Geoff’s Bar Stool Video & RI Furniture Show

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!

If you’re traveling near Concord, MA, stop by Deb’s wonderful store to “test drive” these Bar Stools and select some yummy natural food.  The stools should be in the store by Saturday, November 3rd.  If you don’t live near Concord, check out our Store Locator, to find a shop with Owl Furniture near you!

Also, Geoff is heading to the Fine Furnishings Show near Providence, RI.  The show is November 2-4 at the Pawtucket Armory Arts Center.  A discount admission coupon is available in last week’s blog.  We hope to see you there!

As always, thank you all for your interest in our Made in Maine 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

 

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:
