i am quite smitten by the gorgeous twig stool and bench from english furniture maker russell pinch. it’s made from the offshoots or stems from the stumps of hazel or sweet chestnut trees from a local forest, in a technique called coppicing.


see more beautiful work from russell here, and purchase these pieces and more beautiful, earth friendly goods at one eco home (based in the uk).

    just plain gorgeous. i love it when something so utterly simple is also elegant and functional… i would love to see this used inside or out of the house.

    hi sosser,

    the designer recommends using this inside, but it would be fun to see about making one for the outside too!

    i wish the photo was a little sharper so we could see how these pieces are constructed. they are so cool.

    glad 2 c u! xo
