Too Cool For Stool

Add a kick of street style to your home with this sturdy, compact seat that features a creative reuse of of roughed-up skateboards. Broken boards are byproducts of skate culture and decks are usually destined for the landfill once they're cracked. Inspired by the consistent way many skateboards were busted, artist Jason Podlaski collects shattered skateboards from skateshops and skateparks in the US and Canada and turns both deck and truck into a hybrid, high-quality piece of furniture that's built tough. The scrapes and scars on the decks create a beautiful veneer of use over the original graphics. Every deckstool is meticulously built, reinforced and finished by skilled craftsmen in Pennsylvania.

Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

Due to the variable nature of recycled skateboard decks, every stool is unique and will feature a one-of-a-kind combination of scarred skateboard art, scrapes/bangs, colors and graffiti. The decks for each stool are carefully selected by hand in order to be complimentary, much like a woodworker would select lumber for a piece of fine furniture. Despite the fact that every stool is unique, we have engineered our production process to insure all furniture meets our strict quality and dimensional specifications. We do produce every piece of furniture to be balanced as far as "quality" of skateboard art, colors, and graffiti included in each stool.

Jason Podlaski

It all began when Adam Podlaski approached his brother, Jason, and asked him to salvage the remains of what appeared to be several broken skateboards. Jason realized that not only could the pieces be fashioned into stools but that most skateboards tend to break in similar spots - at the truck or, simply, in half - lending themselves perfectly to legs and seats. Now, instead of being chucked into landfills and discarded, broken skateboards could have a second life as furniture. After all, with providing hours of fun and freedom to their owners, they deserved a more dignified retirement. With quality and authenticity in mind, Jason takes special care to preserve the scrapes and scars that make every board, and stool, unique. collection
