Artefact Design & Salvage recently announced the return of a popular product – the Marine Spring Stool. This unique bar stool design is made from salvaged marine dock bumpers and looks like a giant spring with a seat on the top. It is one of many new, hand-selected home furnishings available at Artefact Design & Salvage. The demand for Artefact’s new Marine Spring Stools arose after a picture of the stool was included with an article in California Home and Design Magazine.
The original stool was created from salvaged marine dock bumpers and repurposed into 24-inch stools suitable for any commercial office, bar, restaurant or residence. At the time, though, only eight stools were available. Since the image in California Magazine went viral, there has been an unrelenting demand for more, so much so that Artefact had to find a way to reproduce them. The first shipment of the new Marine Spring Stools will arrive in Sonoma in a few weeks.
The new Marine Spring Stools, which are made from heavy duty tubular steel, look and feel exactly like the original stools, but at one-third of the weight. Artefact is producing them in two heights. A taller, 30.5-inch version will arrive on the first container in August, followed in September by the classic, 24-inch height.
The seats on top of the spring have a 15-inch diameter and will be fabricated locally with high quality hardwood. They are available in a choice of four finishes: natural, ebony, cherry and dark walnut. A locally fabricated leather seat option will be available soon. Those who fell in love with the original Marine Spring Stools can get a new one at a substantially cheaper price. The 24-inch models are $550 each and the 30.5-inch models are $595.
Find the Marine Spring Stools by visiting Artefact Design & Salvage’s online store or stop in to their home décor and garden laboratory at 23562 Highway 121 in Sonoma.
