Inspired by Japanese Bathhouses: Nesting Stepstools by Jessica Wickham

With a degree in cultural anthropology followed by years of living in Japan, Jessica Wickham is undoubtedly worldly. She puts her global view to good use at Wickham Solid Wood Studio, where she uses responsibly sourced Hudson Valley hardwoods to create furniture with modernist style and organic forms. Featuring meticulous craftsmanship, Wickham’s Nesting Stepstools illustrate her passion for old-world joinery and solid wood.

Stacking, Nesting Stepstools from Local “Dead and Down” Hudson Valley Hardwoods

Inspired by Japanese Bathhouses: Nesting Stepstools by Jessica Wickham

Made from Black Walnut, White Ash, Black Cherry, and Spalted Maple, Nesting Stepstools are inspired by stools found in Japanese bathhouses. While the three pieces fit nicely inside each other, they also work wonders on their own. Use the small stool to rest a cup of coffee; the medium stool to hold the morning paper; and the large stool to place a reading lamp. They might also work as a perfect seat for the three bears.

Nesting Stepstools use “dead and down” logs sourced from Hudson Valley landscapers. The wood is milled, stacked, and kiln-dried “to ensure workability for fine furniture.” Clients are welcome at the Beacon, New York studio/workshop to see, feel, and select wood.

About the Manufacturer: Wickham Solid Wood Studio makes furniture from responsibly sourced Hudson Valley hardwoods.
