Introducing Furniture Marolles — timeless, handcrafted seating that honors the legacy of the artisans of Northern France that originally built this furniture, while updating the design to function in modern times.
Fewer than 100 Marolles Chairs were produced in the 1950’s by the Artisans of Marolles, a cooperative founded by Jean Touret (1916-2004). Known primarily as an artist and sculptor, he made the first chair, without back, as a milking stool for his neighbor.
In 2015 Ed Clay, an accomplished fine woodworker in California’s Wine Country, encountered an iconic three-legged Marolles chair. After building a prototype for himself he contacted Jean Touret’s family and, with their blessing, Ed and his daughter Ariel launched Furniture Marolles.
These beautiful American White Oak stools are now proudly handmade using centuries old methods that leave evidence of the maker's hand.
The naturally occurring knots and fine cracks that you may see will not cause structural deficiencies as they are an organic aspect of the hardwood. We view these elements not as flaws, but as reminders of the tree from which each piece is born.
