When you think about it, there are really few objects being made that are primarily constructed of wood and metal. I dont think I have something like this in my house. So when I saw the Lidell Wood Bar Stool, I look twice. Then three times. Then a fourth. Then I finally bought two of them. I use them for a small bar area that I have built against my picture window, and it is just great to sit on one of these great stools and have a coffee in the morning looking out into the woods.
