  1. Artisan Bar Height Stool in Natural Cherry

    Artisan Stool

    A variation on our Artisan chairs, these stools have been very popular since their introduction in early 2007. The perfect finishing touch in a kitchen, living area or game room, these stools are a space saving alternative to more formal eating arrangements. Paired with our café table, a tiny nook can become a comfortable daily breakfast table for two or an occasional snack area for a cozy foursome.

    • Available in counter (36") or bar (42") height
    • Available with or without back


    Fabric: The price of this piece includes the cost of upholstery but does not include the cost of fabric. You can drop off or mail a fabric you found elsewhere or pick from our selection listed below. Minimum of 3/4 yards of fabric is required.

  2. Nantucket Bench in Walnut

    Nantucket Bench

    Sometimes here at Hardwood Artisans, stars align. In fact it happens so often that it now seems an out-growth of the organic nature of our creative process. Not being tied to producing a spring, summer or winter catalog as some larger companies, we can create and release a new piece based on a customer suggestion or our own fleeting inspiration. The Nantucket bench was one such customer suggestion.


    Once it was built and we showed it around the office, we agreed that it looked as though it belonged in some sea-side New England town readying itself for the approaching fall. Hence, Nantucket. Only later through happy coincidence did we discover that Abiah Folger, founding father Benjamin Franklin's mother, was born on Nantucket. Her birth site is marked by a plaque and is known to locals as "The Bench". From a customer's musings to a short history lesson, sometimes life around here just feels like one fortunate accident.

    • Available in several different lengths.
    • Equally at home in a dining room, living room, entrance, or at the foot of a bed.

  3. Shinto Stool

    Shinto Stool

    The Shinto stool is an Asian influenced design that has been created and recreated by dozens of companies. Co-owner Mark Gatterdam redesigned the Shinto stool to properly represent the way Hardwood Artisans believes furniture should be built: solid hardwood, no screws, no nails, to last for generations. These pieces feature careful craftsmanship of thru tenons and wedged keys commonly accented in ebony. To top it off, a sculpted seat makes this piece a perfect balance of functional furniture and fine art. If you prefer, add a back to the stool, supported by a steel brace in black. The design is also crafted in a shorter height which we call our Shinto bench. It is an ideal height to place in front of your bed or in any living room.

    • Bar height and counter height available.
    • With or without a back
