The Deneb Teak Stool (2003) combines an austere aluminum frame with smooth, slatted teak in a compact form that works as a seat or side table. The frame is assembled from four components, precision engineered to fit seamlessly together in support of the teak slats. Like the rest of the Deneb Teak Collection, the Deneb Stool features clean-cut v-shaped legs, configured to increase its stability and allow two or more to be put together to create a longer seat or side table. The Stool fits nicely at the short end of the Deneb Teak Tables and several can be used as individual seats around the table in lieu of a bench. The Stool can be used on its own in an entryway or garden, and is appropriate indoors or out. The teak slats can be oiled to maintain their original color, or left to acquire a beautiful silvery patina. Rubber glides protect floors.
