Sayonara, the Japanese word for 'goodbye' and inspired by the hard lines and masculine feel of the magnificent yacht of the same name built by William Fife III. Hand crafted from either black walnut or ash. Upholstered in luxurious leather. A selection of leathers and fabrics in various colour are available. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss colour options. There would be an additional cost for upholstering in your own fabric or leather.

Why we love this product

Inspired by mid-century modern furniture design

This sophisticated bar stool is named after the Japanese word for 'goodbye', displaying Ben's affinity to Japanese design. It is also fittingly named after the famous yacht with the same name with its classic and elegant design. This stool is perfect for enhancing residential spaces such as being used for kitchen islands and breakfast bars, perhaps even a home bar. It is also ideal for commercial use in a bar or restaurant.
