spindle stools

Designed by Patty Johnson & Stella Hackett
for Quality Lamps
Christ Church, Barbados

This design collaboration was informed by the designers' interest in vernacular Caribbean furniture. Turned spindle furniture is still widely produced and sold in 'bottom house' shops throughout the Caribbean. These wooden stools simplify the often complicated parts by scaling up a single profile. They are turned on a copy lathe by a small lamp manufacturer in Barbados.

Made from Andiroba wood.
