Handmade ottoman / stool with retro-chic design style for your home seating furniture.
Designed by a visual artist, designer and builder, as well as Hinterland Design’s founder, Riley McFerrin, the Tidal Flux is wool-and-fluorescent-nylon-cord seat of a crafty brass stool with retro chic style.
Made from cotton rope, wool yarn, and fluorescent nylon cord on a brass plated steel base, the Tidal Flux ottoman / stool conceived as a beautified version of a Pacific Northwest crab trap. The Tidal Flux ottoman / stool is also not only an intricate piece of crafting handiwork, but also a comfortable place to rest.
Made entirely by hand knot by knot, just as fishermen have mended nets for centuries, the rope top of Tidal Flux also nods to a more modern hippie macrame esthetic. Following a consistent color palette and pattern makes the pieces reproduce able, but some variations in upholstery occur due to the handmade nature of the knot work.
