If you’ve ever felt like those special champagne-worthy moments in life were just… missing something… perhaps a dose of meta-celebration could have come in handy. A Gloucestershire-based company called Impulse Purchase has just the thing (i.e., both an extra level of revelry and a perfect impulse purchase, as its name suggests): a set of enormous champagne corks that act as bar stools.
It’s a new twist on the classic burlesque act staging a life-sized champagne glass as a giant bubble bath, and perhaps more family-friendly as well. The stools, made from Portuguese cork, are claimed by the company to be “eco-friendly,” which we presume means the trees from which they’re made are grown in a sustainable fashion and limits are placed on manufacturing.
If that’s the case, these stools are a guilt-free way to cozy up to the bar at home to ring in the new year, celebrate a birthday or any of life’s other memorable moments.
As of this posting, the stools are only available in the UK. Elsewhere, Amazon offers a similar version.
