Edition of 20. Reuse, reexamined. Our limited edition furniture is always handcrafted from wood with unique stories, but Pappy Van Winkle’s White Oak barrel staves are a wood story unlike any other. Each fluid curve, each narrow width, each amber stain and bourbon soaked char became a joy and a challenge; our three designs for Louisville, Kentucky, based Pappy & Co come out of an attentive conversation between that history of use and the language of modern, fine furniture. 

With wood, a design can often manifest itself only once we begin to work closely with that specific material. Here, as we began to experiment with flattening out the widest barrel staves, a pattern emerged; because of the inherent curve of the material, as we remove thin layer after layer of wood on the outer edges of the charred surface you are left with a swath of black, more black remembered: sometimes looking as ephemeral as smoke, while others take on the elongated ovoid of a flame. Columns of Pappy’s Oak, each with mitered corners, are capped with quarter inch solid unlacquered brass. Brass fittings echo the gold foil lined custom, Kentucky-made, matte black paper shades.
