Outdoor Light Slate Stool by Art Futuro for AUTHOR's collections of unique British-made furniture and home accessories

Regular price £984 Sale

Beautifully made by Art Futuro in Stirling, Scotland.

Made from glass fibre-backed slate veneer. This slate can stand the rain and rough weather. To further protect the stool from the outdoor weather, a bespoke rain cover is available to purchase. Inside is an economical, high quality LED strip. This LED light strip guarantees you 50,000 hours and so a replacement should never be needed. To avoid having cables on the patio and the related risks with electricity in the garden, this model is battery powered. It can be easily recharged with the included charger, similar to a mobile phone. A cushion is also available to purchase.

  • While the utmost care goes in to handcrafting each piece and selecting consistent slate veneer, the natural variations associated with slate are inevitable. However, these variations always add to the character and make each piece 100% unique. The stools only require light dusting with a soft, clean cloth. We recommend using the rain cover to further protect the stool outside when not in use.
Why we love this product

Made from real slate

These Outdoor Light Slate Stools will give your patio or garden a contemporary edge. This stunning Light Stool is made from a layer of slate, showing the beauty and natural variation of the rock, each piece is unique and individual. These Slate Stools look gorgeous during the day when they are not lit, pleasing to the eye as decorative sculptures and functional seating, especially with the added cushion. When lit, the slate can be viewed in a whole new light, literally! The natural tone of the rock changes when illuminated. The warm glow emitted creates relaxing, soft lighting for a cosy atmosphere. 

The light source for the Light Stool comes from high quality, economical LEDs with very low power consumption. Battery powered, the lights can be used for outdoor lighting to set the mood for an evening with friends outside without the worry of the tangling of cables and wiring to the mains. 

What our customers say...

"We required a business gift to be sent to an associate as a thank you. AUTHOR procured, beautifully packaged and delivered the gift with a lovely hand written note. It was done seamlessly and professionally and was so easy, I wasn’t even in the country! I would highly recommend them if you ever required a gift service."
