Due to the fact that our furniture is a result of craftsman's work, the measurements provided here might differ from the real ones by maximum +/- 1.5 cm.
Our medieval furniture is finished with sandpaper of 60-level grit. Therefore, in some softer spots of a piece of furniture, you may find some slight, natural wood nap which is a result of polishing. It practically disappears after impregnating the furniture with the use of natural methods such as linen oil or wax. If you plan to varnish the furniture in more contemporary way and want us to make the furniture’s surface smoother (i.e. use sandpaper of higher grit), please contact us and we will tell you the price of the option.

The stool from Lund
Our semi-circular stool is based on the 11th century finding from Lund in Sweden. What survived is the D-shaped seat made of birch wood which has three openings for the legs.
History of wooden stools
Wooden stools are one of the oldest furnishings for sitting. Unfortunately, it is hard to find their origins. Some historians believe that their popularity in Europe grew thanks to Varangian Guard which brought these from Byzantium.
