Hand-carved and completely eco-friendly is this Twist Stool, made from the thick branches of the quick-growing Acacia tree in Thailand - where each branch is cut and carved to order (allowing the tree to continue growing). The wood is kiln dried, carved and sanded by local skilled Thai artisans, creating a beautiful, sturdy and sustainable place to sit. As this is a natural product, the color and grain of your stool will be completely unique, and may include small checks or cracks that occur when the wood is dried. Your stool will truly be one of a kind, and is sure to add weathered charm to any room of the house. Use it as guest seating, a side table, window seat - the possibilities are endless, and in this case, natural!

Bonus: they're made from reclaimed waste cork and non-toxic epoxy adhesive - and the big one can be used as a bike helmet (in a pinch). ($118 at Branch)
