Conceived as a beautified version of a Pacific Northwest crab trap, this ottoman/stool is not only an intricate piece of crafting handiwork, but also a comfortable place to rest. A perfect hybrid of design and functionality, made entirely by hand knot-by-knot just as fishermen have mended nets for centuries. The rope top nods to a more modern hippie macrame aesthetic. Following a consistent color palette and pattern makes the pieces reproducible, but some variations in upholstery occur due to the handmade nature of the knot work.
Cotton rope, wool yarn, and fluorescent nylon cord on a brass/copper plated steel base.
