Champagne Cork Stool by Michael Chiarello

Care To Sit On A Giant Champagne Cork?
The folks at Wine Spectator’s Unfiltered column didn’t love it but I think the champagne cork and cage set from Michael Chiarello’s home furnishings company Napa Style is kind of kicky. Then again I’m a fan of small things made large. The cork stool in bright orange is not made of cork but of polyethylene and the stool is made of chromed steel. The fun part is that the two pieces can function as one unit or a separate stool and a table.
