Holy Toledo Industrial Stool!

We welcome some additions from the Toledo Metal Furniture Company to our Industrial Range and our store.

Toledo Adjustable Height Industrial Stool

Toledo Adjustable Height Industrial Stool

What was eventually incorporated as the Toledo Metal Furniture Comapny, started out as the humble Uhl’s Cycle Emporium in Toledo Ohio in 1898. The Uhl brothers founded the company on $85, producing bicycle parts for their local area.

As the popularity of bicycles decreased with the introduction of the Automobile, the Uhl’s shifted their company focus to manufacturing ice cream parlour furniture. By 1920, capital stock reached upwards of $300,000 and there were over 150 employees in the company. With this growth, their range also had increased to include office and classroom furniture.

We are happy to have the Toledo Industrial Stool also known as the Draftsmen stool in our store. We have it in 2 colourways seen below.

Comparing Provincial Furniture

So last week we had introduced some new colours to an old favourite product, the Provincial Breakfast Stools. Firstly, I’d like to add that we have a new addition to the family, which comes in the colour White! Our breakfast stools have been very popular and we have had a lot of requests to get these stools in other colours so here it is!

Now to the main point of this post, I’d like to show you the differences in our stools and some of our competitors on the markets. Especially when it comes to the coloured stools. Our natural and brown stools are made from a  hardwood oak. Our black and white stools are made from birch wood. The reason behind this is due to the nature and physical appearance of each wood.

Oak is a beautiful hardwood, with a strong underlying grain. This is a majority of its appeal, and for naturally stained or brown stained stools, we want to show this off. Birch is also a hardwood and is closely related to the Oak family. Birch is finer grained and paler in colour, and as such, takes colour paint a lot better than other woods (trust me, we experimented with different woods!). With birch, the paint settles smoothly and evenly with little interference with the paint itself.

Onward to staining/colouring. I’ve included a picture of a close up of joints of a stool. When the product is sprayed with the colour, you have an uneven finish around the joints. This is because the colour cannot get into all the small joints of the stool. Alternatively, you can stain every piece of wood involved in the process. This takes a lot longer as staining and drying time is required, although you are left with a far more even stain, and a better looking product overall.

Stain vs Spray On Colour

Note the difference in a Stain (bottom) and a spray on colour (top)

Also, as you may recall in my last post, I talked about the rustic finish and patina of certain provincial products that is quite a desired look. Our rattan seating has been treated and brushed with a black finish to emulate this look instead of the synthetic look you get from a clean finished rattan seat top. I hope the photo below can illustrate the differences.

New Products! Provincial Bar Stools / Breakfast Stools

We have a new edition to the ever popular bar or breakfast stools in our provincial seating range. I’m very happy to showcase 2 more colours. The Brown Provincial Breakfast Stool and the Black Provincial Breakfast Stool.

This is in addition to our ever popular Provincial Seating Range which draws inspiration from cultural hotspots in French cities such as Blois and Orléanss in the Loire Valley, and at Lyon or Liège. Our Provincial Range has features typically associated with French Provincial Furniture which include the lines and the rattan seating reflecting the countryside backgroung and surrounding of the chair maker.

The variety of colours available in our Provincial Stools and Chairs, while appearing modern and contemporary, are all very common and true to the history of Provincial Furniture. Our rattan seating comes with a black wash, emulating the much coveted and adored look of the accumulation of grime, polish and dirt which is common to an aged patina. Patina, is what is referred to as the coating, or sheen of the wood or surface of furniture. Furniture enthusiasts are always on the lookout for an “aged patina”, which is acquired usually through age and exposure and skin contact. Patinas can provide a protective layer to materials that would otherwise be damaged by corrosion or weathering. Also, and they are very visually appealing to enthusiasts and amateurs all the same.
