Bourbon barrels are only used once in the ageing process (if you can believe it) then they're either discarded or shipped off to Scotland for making Scotch. Now if you happen to live in Barstown, Kentucy the bourbon capital of the world you're in luck.

But if you don't a company called Uhuru has done the work for you by upcycling used bourbon barrels and making them into sleek, clean, modern chairs. The base has also been upcycled from old fire trucks so all the materials have been reclaimed.

This chair does remind me of the Meis Van de Rohe chair in terms of the clean lines and simplistic design so this chair will always remain timeless. And like the Van de Rohe chair you do have your choice of finishes
