“We bought the business in 2016 from a gentleman in Oregon who was retiring, and since then, we have continued to grow,” said Lukey. “Today we have customers everywhere, ranging from large chains to small bars and private homes.”
Taken Barstools are made from cast aluminum alloy based on barstool designs of yesteryear, complete with a solid oak wood seat.
Apart from a few fasteners, every Taken Barstool is engineered, sourced, and finished in the United States.
Taken’s most popular barstool is the Seattle Classic, which can be customized for height, base color, seat stain color, finish and more.
“It’s exciting to see something you’ve worked so hard on begin to take root and grow,” says Luke. “Dana and I were not sure what we were getting ourselves into when we bought the business, and it’s been an interesting journey so far.
