'Stump' by Kalon Studios

This gorgeous, minimalist stool, dubbed 'Stump' by Kalon Studios is a beautiful perch for a child, which may also easily translate into decor and extra seating for any room in the home. Stump also reminds me of the poignant end of the story The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein -- wherein all the tree has left to offer the little boy he has given everything to is a tree stump to sit on and rest.

Made from FSC certified domestic Ash or Maple, Stump stools are sanded smooth, but left raw and  unfinished. "The piece celebrates the natural qualities of the tree trunk. Stump is cut from the green wood of a tree trunk so the surface splits as it ages and dries, giving each piece a unique look."
