Cathance River Stools

The unsurpassed comfort found in these elegant stools comes from my own life experiences and from antiquity. Growing up on a small family farm, we had a number of pieces of haying equipment from the horse drawn era. These ancient implements had cast iron seats and they often facilitated long hours of sitting while using numerous foot pedals and levers on the machines. Consequently, the seats had to be comfortable while allowing the operator to remain nimble. The original stool was a design I came up with for playing guitar. As a flat picker and contra dance musician, I need a seat that stays stable under me and does not interfere with my instrument, yet still allows for hours of vigorous strumming and picking. It has become a big hit with spinners and weavers who need to work while sitting. The taller versions of these stools are compatible with breakfast and bar situations where comfort and conversation unite.
