Bar stools must be comfortable. Repeat. Bar stools must be comfortable. When "It's 5:00 Somewhere" turns into a late evening, it's important that your bar seating be forgiving.
Enter Varaluz. We have decades of furniture-making experience and hand-forge our truly comfortable bar stools from recycled steel.
Our Flow barstools have amazingly intricate detail work and are hand-painted in rich multi-dimensional finishes.

Here at Varaluz, we love Earth Month. It happens to be our favorite month of the year! We have adopted eco-friendly manufacturing practices that truly do make Earth Day a daily occurrence for us.
How do we hand-forge unique lighting all while supporting green living?
1. We hand-forge our lighting and furniture using recycled steel, recycled glass, and sustainable and natural materials, such as shell.
Big is one of our bestselling shell collections, and it is meticulously crafted using both sustainable and reclaimed shells. Click here to view the Varaluz Big lighting collection.
2. We hand-paint our lighting and furniture using low-VOC paint. VOCs can cause breathing and other health problems. Click here to see the Varaluz Flow collection, which features low-VOC paint.
3. We package our lighting and furniture as efficiently as possible using recycled cardboard.
4. We recycle parts, components, and unusable fixtures.
Boring is a word that should be reserved for tedious lectures or bad movies (did anyone else get dragged to Batman v Superman?). Boring should not describe your outdoor lighting.
Varaluz outdoor lights are pretty unique. Have you seen an outdoor light like this? Or this? Your outdoor lights are yet another chance to showcase your style (and maybe make your neighbors a tad jealous, too).
Did we get that song, movie or famed architect in your head? That was our playful hope. Whether you took it as coordinated boy-band moves, cinematic aerospace brilliance or inspiration from a certain architect named Frank, we hope you find it as strong and fascinating as we do.
We are big fans of Mid-Century Modern design. Our lighting families often incorporate Mid-Century Design elements but none have done so as dramatically as our new Iconic family.
If Mid-Century Modern had a love child with Mid-Century Modern (follow us here), Iconic would be that child. Much more than a mere suggestion of MCM, Iconic goes all out. It's hand-forged from heavy gauge recycled steel and hand painted in a metallic finish that hints at the warmth of wood. Some cutouts are left flat and some peek outwards, a subtle approach to gain visual texture and create sweet shadows. Iconic is just the right amount of too much.

The famous desert US military test site has given birth to rumors of captive aliens, alien spacecraft, and various other UFO phenomenon. Our two cents add a bit of unique lighting design to the legend.
