The laidback Australian lifestyle was the inspiration for the Waterfall stool. We wanted a stool that was warm and inviting, yet displayed a layer of sophistication for those with eyes to see it. A veteran bushwalker once told me that the Waterfall stool and the grain of the golden Victorian blackwood reminded him somehow of a high country trout stream.
A fine stool should invite your eyes. It should then reward your body. We would love to attribute the craftsmanship or the flowing lines to the Waterfall stool’s popularity, but in our hearts we know it’s the easy comfort of the Waterfall that sells it. Australians are very practical that way.
Featuring through-wedged-tenons and a flowing ergonomic seat, the strong and light Waterfall is at home in both contemporary and traditional houses. The Waterfall stool is often the first piece of our work a client owns. It is through the Waterfall that many come to understand the pleasure a well-designed and crafted piece of furniture brings to a house.
Woodworkers have always appreciated the Waterfall Stool. The design won it’s first award in 2004 at the Sydney Timber and Working with Wood Show. Since then it has been the subject of articles, videos and even a podcast. We really aren’t sure how many Waterfall stools we have made since it was first launched in 2001, but it’s well over a thousand.
