We are grateful for the press and attention the Charred Commode has garnered after winning Garden & Gun’s Made in the South Award. While this edition is sold out, you can commission a similar piece, bespoke for your space. If you’d like to see an example of a commissioned version, see our Projects Page.
Edition of 15. Here our two drawer modern interpretation of the traditional bedroom mainstay is rendered in charred Loblolly Pine; with mitered edges, the undulating texture wraps the case in deep color. As a counter point, the hand-turned knobs and turned, tapered legs remain clear and golden. The cabinet is scaled for a place beside the bed or sofa.
The Charred Collection evolved from the traditional roots of ancient Japanese wood construction, which emphasized a need for rot and bug tolerance while maintaining a consistent structural integrity. Our burning process, based on this model, entails binding three boards into a chimney for a controlled burn over a small firebox. The resulting boards are wire brushed and receive multiple coats of a clear, zero VOC, water based finish. This ensures durability, functionality, and longevity as an elegant and unexpected addition to a space.
