Toby Stool in Pickled Oak
Is it a footstool? Is it a mini seat? Better than that, it's both! It's just the right height to put your feet up when used with our Toby Chairs but also, a perfectly comfortable perch in its own right for those with medium to small bottoms. In our garden, they serve as footstools most of the time and then when the nieces and nephews descend, they have their own special seats.
Made from beautiful, sustainably sourced European Oak, every single piece is individually inspected, cut, drilled & finished. Oak is a much sought after hardwood; strong, heavy & durable. Our Pickled Oak range is inspired from a centuries-old scientific principle - Iron reacts with the tannin on the wood, and creates a beautiful black shade within the wood itself.
To achieve this finish, we firstly wash the Oak in a specially prepared Oak bark powder tea, and then using a solution of iron and vinegar, we wash the Oak several times until it becomes a consistent and beautiful jet black.
In addition to three coats of a high quality protective teak oil we use two further coats of a high-grade UV protective oil, to help to preserve the colour when used outside. We can recommend a suitable oil with UV protection for maintenance of your Pickled Oak chairs - application is straightforward.
The Original Chair shown in the main picture is sold separately.
Caring For Pickled Oak
The Pickled Oak Toby Chairs will quite happily withstand a quick rain shower, but we recommend that you bring the chairs inside if bad weather is forecast. To keep your chair in perfect condition, store it in a dry place and occasionally show it some love with a top up of protective oil - you can now buy teak oil in spray form, making it super quick and easy to coat.
