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.

Made in Pennsylvania

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.

Notes
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.

My boyfriend LOVES this stool. It adds a nice flare to whatever surrounds it. It's used while browsing a vinyl shelf unit so one doesn't have to crouch or squat uncomfortably. I'm actually getting another for him !!!

This is the perfect gift for a skateboarder (past or present). Perfect for my son's room... Small in scale, but it is standard height... works at his desk, or just for additional seating. Plus, it is incredibly cool!

I want to Love it, but do not.

I wanted to love this product, it is a gift for a former skateboarder. When it arrived I was convinced there was some mistake. After reading the description more closely it does say the accurate height. The photo however, makes it look like a stool that could be used at a desk or bar etc. This could only be used at a child's table or as a step stool.
