Inspired by Southern California's tenuous connection to water, the Drought Collection features solid hardwoods native to California, charred in the traditional Japanese shou sugi ban technique, with crushed turquoise stone, brass details, and smoked glass.
Drought’s charred surface represents Southern California’s historically dry climate and profound lack of water. The crushed turquoise inlay symbolizes what little water is available, while acting as a true structural suture to mend naturally occurring cracks in the wood. Smoked glass represents the fragility of our natural environment.
Drought currently consists of a dining table, cocktail table, bench, and a contemporary take on the milking stool. DOWNLOAD COLLECTION SHEET.
CBM Woodworks reinterprets traditional farmhouse milking stools as chic contemporary seating. Balanced on three legs for optimum stability in any environment, these stools combine rustic sensibility with luxurious detailing and a nod to sustainable practice.
The seats and leg sleeves are salvaged from cuts leftover from larger projects, while the brass legs are buffed to a high sheen. Available in white oak, walnut, charred ash, and other species – and metals – by request. DOWNLOAD COLLECTION SHEET.
