We’ve long looked to Sawkille Co.—the Rhinebeck, New York–based furniture workshop spearheaded by Jonah Meyer—for their uncanny way of riffing on classic American craftsmanship: paring down the lines of spindle-back chairs and glamming up trestle tables. Their new collection of silhouettes of five housewares takes a step further toward whimsy—including a first collaboration with a San Francisco–based sculptor (another Remodelista favorite). Take a look at the offerings.
The Song Stool is available in three heights (including the diminutive version, shown at right) and five woods: ash, white oak, hard maple, sycamore, and American black walnut. The threaded legs can twist off of the base.N.B.: We originally wrote about Song’s indigo work back in 2014 (see Moody Blues: Silvia Song’s Indigo-Dyed Bowls and More); Sawkille tells us that their next collaboration with her will feature her indigo dye techniques. Stay tuned.
