Overview

Buddy Barstool by Blu Dot

A wise person once said that wood is good. Buddy is here to prove it. A molded ply back wraps to hug and gently kiss a curved wood seat. Solid wood legs provide a sturdy and elegant base while subtle wood dowel details keep it all feeling special.

Buddy was born from the desire to create a fresh-yet-familiar wood chair for both commercial and residential spaces. We began by building a full-scale prototype in our Minneapolis studio to work through visual details and comfort adjustments. The base was then refined to its simplest form, while retaining rigidity and strength for the rigors of commercial use. Finally, bent plywood was unconventionally juxtaposed against a solid wood base to create a design that is effortlessly au courant with a gentle nod to the past.

  • Larger/Freight items:
    • For Residential deliveries, the shipper will contact you via phone call/email at least 24 hours in advance - to schedule a delivery appointment window (typically a 4 hour window). This is when your order does not ship with UPS/Fedex. Most shippers will have online tracking available as well.
