Amazing Australian Furniture

In Australia even the furniture can be a bit different from the rest of the world.
Below are a few examples of some pretty amazing Australian furniture.

Bar stools

bar stools  for sale
Moai bar stools in Whet restaurant, Cape Tribulation
Left to right stool 1 to 4, the centre one is not part of the set and not for sale.

These barstools were inspired by the ancient Moai statues of remote Easter Island.
They were sculptured in the Daintree by Rob Lapaer from local pencil cedar, using only a chainsaw and a sander.

There is currently a total of twenty stools available for sale, perfect to give your bar that extra touch that makes it stand out from the other bars.
These bar stools are a solid investment that will last a life time, or longer.
The stools are 80 cm. in heigth, and of varying diametres.
The sizes range from pickupable to ginormous, and the prices from $350.- to $650.-
They are individually sculpted, freehand without exact measurements, so each one is slightly different and unique having its own personality.
For more info on these bar stools see or click here for contact details for enquiries.

Later in 2013 Rob hopes to finish another set of ten bar stools in Kuranda Quandong, also known as Ebony Heart for its dark black core inside the light timber.
Some of these will be even bigger than the ones above!

The largest set of six pencil cedar bar stools is currently on loan to restaurant Whet in Cape Tribulation, where you can view them and try them out, as in the above photo.

On the back verandah of Rainforest Hideaway B&B in Cape Tribulation is another set of seven stools available to view, and try out.
