Custom, Modern, Handmade, Nature-Inspired, Bar Stools and Chairs At Stratum, we have always been dedicated to creating exceptional bespoke luxury furniture that not only stands the test of time but also represents the cutting edge of design and sustainability. Drawing inspiration from the beauty and force of nature, our TIDE custom chair and bar stool collection embodies the unique and powerful waves created by high tides crashing onto rocks.Today, we are excited to share with you the latest evolution of our TIDE collection: 6 new bar stool designs crafted from sustainable Baltic birch hardwood. Currently in the development phase, these designs are available for early access by request. We invite our clients to collaborate with us, providing valuable input to help shape the final product. By doing so, we ensure that our creations not only meet our clients’ needs but exceed their expectations, capturing the essence of the natural world and translating it into truly exceptional furniture. Design #1: Confluence The first design in our new TIDE collection is Confluence. This unique piece showcases the beauty of Baltic birch hardwood, as separate layers (aka: Strata!) come together to form the elegant armrests. The fluidity of the design is reminiscent of a confluence of rivers, merging harmoniously into a single, unified whole. Confluence is not only a stunning addition to any high-end bar or dining area but also a testament to the exceptional craftsmanship behind our bespoke luxury furniture. Design #2: The Classic Next up, we have The Classic, a bar stool that elegantly combines a traditional square base with modern design elements. The result is a steady, supportive seating option that is both stylish and timeless. The Classic’s adaptability also makes it an excellent choice for a dining chair, providing both comfort and sophistication. Design #3: The Wave Our third design, The Wave, takes its inspiration from the flowing movement of water. The seat’s organic curves mimic the gentle undulations of the ocean, creating a harmonious and soothing aesthetic. The Wave is perfect for those looking to add a touch of tranquility and elegance to their interior spaces. Design #4: The Dancer The Dancer, is a testament to the power of simplicity and elegance. The base of this stool takes on the form of a classic dress, executed in a modern approach. The Dancer’s unique design provides ample legroom, making it an ideal choice for a bar stool or counter stool. This piece is perfect for clients who appreciate beauty, comfort, and functionality in their bespoke luxury furniture. Design #5: The Pleated Dancer The Pleated Dancer is a captivating design that draws its inspiration from its sister model, The Dancer. This bar stool showcases an intricate pattern created by separate layers that form a pleated effect, reminiscent of carefully folded fabric. The elegant contours and distinctive stripes work in harmony to create a visually striking and elegant piece of functional art. Just as graceful and alluring as its counterpart, The Pleated Dancer adds an extra layer of sophistication through its unique design details. This piece perfectly complements a refined and contemporary interior, where the subtle complexity of the pleated pattern can truly shine. Design #6: The Illuminated Dancer Our final design, The Illuminated Dancer is a refined and visually striking design that shares its lineage with The Dancer and The Pleated Dancer. This bar stool showcases the same elegant contours as its counterparts, but with a unique twist: the separate layers that make up the base open up at the bottom, allowing light to pass through and create a visually lighter weight design. The distinctive legs, which merge as they rise to form a solid structure, lend an air of grace and sophistication to the piece. The Illuminated Dancer’s airy design not only adds a sense of spaciousness to any interior, but also highlights the exceptional craftsmanship and attention to detail that go into creating our bespoke luxury furniture. Ideal for clients seeking a contemporary and innovative seating solution, The Illuminated Dancer offers both style and functionality while staying true to its sustainable Baltic birch hardwood origins.
