Take A Seat: The Langhorne Stool

REVISIT is a brand that creates products that are inspired by stories and places.

The initial inspiration behind the brand came from the National Parks and the importance behind preservation for future generations.

Products created by REVISIT are not just stylish and well thought out – they represent curiosity, collaboration and nature. Take the Langhorne Stool for example – an item inspired by Theodore Roosevelt and Mark Twain – two men who formed important thoughts and ideas from a simple wooden perch.

REVISIT has decided to honor this simple item of furniture as a way of celebrating the tradition of storytelling. The brand has collaborated with father / son craftsmen Robert and Tor Erickson of Erickson Woodworking – to design and manufacture what is now an iconic, collectable, folding stool. A place when you can sit, collect your thoughts, and share stories for generations.

Months of research, design and thought went into this wooden seat – including the name Langhorne which was taken from Mark Twain’s middle name.

Material plays a great importance. Each stool is made from high quality American Walnut – from the hardwood forests of Pennsylvania. Each seat is made in Nevada City, California. The seat is hand carved using techniques passed down from generation to generation. Each stool is hand numbered – deeming it a true collectable before standing tall in your living room.

Finishing touches include 100 percent milled brass hardware, and a hand stained leather carrying strap made from American Bison leather.

With each purchase, REVISIT will donate a 1/4 of the profits through their Quarter-Back model to help fund Ranger education programs.

A perfect gift for furniture connoisseurs, big thinkers, dreamers – or that person who just needs to take a seat.

The Langhorne Stool retails for 850.00 and is available now on the REVISIT site.

The Best Kinds of Wood for Indoor Fireplaces (and a Few to Never Burn Indoors)
best wood for indoor fireplaces fireplace logs

The days grow shorter, the nights longer, leaves change hue then finally fall, lots of amazing seasonal beers (and ciders) hit store shelves, and the scent of woodsmoke drifts from a neighbor's chimney down the road. Autumn has come. And about damn time -- break out the flannels, boots, and your best woodcutting axe and let's get crackling.

There are few things more pleasurable about the autumn and winter months than a warm fire crackling in a fireplace, but if you burn the wrong wood, that woodsmoke drifting gently about the neighborhood may be filling your home to choking. Or it may smell less woodsy and charming and more acrid and terrible. And in the worst case scenario, burning the wrong kind of wood can create a fire hazard or even expose you to dangerous chemicals that can cause both acute and chronic health issues.

Celebrate Earth Day Indoors With an Environmentally-Friendly Home Makeover

If you’ve been getting your daily dose of outdoor time or even just opened your windows to let in some fresh air, you’ve probably thrilled to the sound of birds singing and the smell of buds opening. Does it seem a little extra this year? It’s not just your sensory deprivation combined with the onset of spring. All across the world, people are noticing that the natural world is sort of rebooting itself. Skies are blue and unpolluted over Los Angeles, New Delhi, and other cities infamous for their smog. The brackish water of Venice's canals is now crystal clear. Where I live in the Keweenaw Peninsula, which is already largely ruled by nature, white-tail deer are cantering down the middle of empty roads.

If you look at the situation through a hippy-dippy kaleidoscope, you could say Mother Earth gave herself a present for her special day by locking her pesky human children indoors and enjoying a little “me time.” It’s hard to begrudge her that, considering how much damage people have done to the planet. But how are you and I supposed to celebrate Earth Day while sheltering in place?

We all dream of a cabin in the woods we can escape to when city life gets to be too much. But what if your ideal escape is leaving the mountains to go into the city? For the team at Hoedemaker Pfeiffer, this meant creating a rustic retreat in the heart of Seattle.

Continental Place is not your typical condo in the city. Looking out of the massive windows, you are treated to views of the water and the Olympic mountains as well as a stunning view of the Space Needle. Turn your back on the windows and you’ll quickly forget this is an urban pied a terre. The chic mountain cabin style may seem out of place in the middle of a metropolitan area, but it was the right choice for the bachelor owner. Being based in Alaska, the style of Continental Place gives him a feeling of home when he’s down in Washington.
