Wine Barrel Chair
Living and working in wine country, it’s only natural that Marshall would incorporate that tradition into his work. This chair is made from a reclaimed oak wine barrel. After five years of use, the wood stops imparting desirable flavors to the wine and the barrels are discarded. The natural curve of the staves drove the chair design, and Marshall left the barrel’s existing grooves and other details on the leg pieces. The Bordeaux-soaked color on the inside of the staves (apparent on the seat and back rails) is sealed in with shellac and a finish coat of Bioshield resin oil.
