Designed to be viewed from every angle, the various perspectives trick the eye into thinking each identical Forest stool is different. Random placement helps achieve an unpredictable yet harmonious arrangement. Jerry Helling, President of Bernhardt Design, states: "The beauty of these barstools is they are so easy to live with because they don't have to be perfectly aligned to look great in a space." When they are grouped, a transformation occurs and the overall effect is unexpected. Helling expounds, "Every stool is the same, but when clustered together, the appearance is like perfectly controlled chaos." The Forest barstool consists of a chrome base with a seat that swivels 360º. The top is available in solid walnut and maple sealed with a hand rubbed natural finish or other standard finishes. Forest stools may also be upholstered in any Bernhardt textile or the customer's own material.
