Unleashing the power of your entrepreneurial spirit can be tricky, though once Casper does finally cut through the health department's red tape, you know that friendly mofo is going to open the very best organic cupcake bakery this city's ever known! For furnishings from a guy who's unleashing his own entrepreneurial spirit for a sixth time, check out Vinoture.
Started by a dude who previously launched five other businesses (including his own clothing line, and Montana's first --and only! -- mobile bartending business), this Walla Walla-based co. turns out a collection of handmade tables and seating options with sweeping modern lines, all constructed exclusively from retired wine casks, a green practice that "honors" the vintner, the oak farmer, and the cooper, which is a nice thought considering Bradley's probably not going to see any others. Butt-supporting items include the Prima, a standard-height barstool in quarter-sawn oak that benefits from "lyrically curved legs and geometric negative space"; the industrial-strength 25" Le Chocolat chair finished in (surprise!) chocolate and caramel tones; and the less-utilitarian Charleton stool stained in wine, which comes in a shorter version called Mother's Little Helper, also how she started referring to birth control after you were born, but that's probably just a coincidence. Bistro-style table options range from the unstained Flora (available in multiple heights), to the Petite Brasserie that -- thanks to custom tops in glass or wood -- can seat two for cocktails, or handle "dining for six", which is also the name of Val Kilmer's new Food Network show about what he likes to cook when he's home alone.
There's also a Japanese-style tea set that boasts a circular foot-tall table and three benches constructed using mortise and tenon joinery, and, for the rare person into something other than eating and drinking, a repurposed Italian metal/reclaimed French oak coat rack, keeping your outerwear conveniently close when it's time to ghost, cupcake.
