Owl® Furniture was developed in 2009 by Geoffrey Warner in response to a new and challenging economy. These designs stem from a core philosophy that honors Community, Ecology and Economy. By offering kits and workshops as well as finished furniture we are able to reach out to many more people interested in owning something beautiful, comfortable and handmade. We are always interested in your ideas and observations and you can reach us at [email protected].
Treat yourself to a day in our Stonington workshop where you will be taught to assemble and finish your own Owl® Stool. This workshop is suitable for ages 10 and up and families have a great time building stools together. Please call to register in advance as workshops are limited to 6 and fill quickly. It is both fun and instructional and the result will be a truly beautiful piece of furniture you can proudly own or give someone special as a gift, destined to become an heirloom. The cost is $35 plus the price of the kit you choose to assemble. If you have questions about assembling a kit please visit this link to Owl Stool Kit Assembly Instructions or watch the video below. Upcoming workshops are posted on our calendar and we can schedule extra days if you have a group of 4 or more. We will break for lunch so we recommend you bring a bagged lunch along. You will see from the slideshow that we often have several generations working together. It is a terrific gift to give yourself or someone you love!
“The workshop was a great way for us to spend time together as a family, get away from computers and televisions, and work with our hands to create something FUNctional. Even better we were able to support local Maine craftsmanship. Our family gained an appreciation for working with our hands to build our owl stool…with no power tools! Geoff was great with the kids and they left with smiles and beautiful pieces of furniture that we’re sure they’ll cherish for years to come.” – D. Webb, Blue Hill, ME
“Don’t think stool. This is an ergonomically designed, doctor evaluated postural support, which eases both spine tension and sitting pressures. An aesthetic balance has been struck between beautiful form and healthy spinal support.” – Dr. M Aker, Blue Hill, Maine
“A little fan mail: love my [cherry owl] stool, I’ve been sitting on it for days now, and am feeling no pain — plus it’s a thing of beauty.” – K. Anderson, Ithaca, New York
