Midcentury Hand Carved Witco Tiki Bar and Barstool Set by William Westenhaver

About

Take a walk on the wild side, or maybe just have a drink there, with this fabulous tiki bar by Witco. The bar and stools are substantial, manufactured of thick slabs of cedar wood. Each stool has been recovered in a high-quality, cruelty free, faux-leather that closely resembles the look and feel of true leather. The bar top has been professionally refinished. The back side of the bar features sturdy shelves. The vintage bar was born of the jet-set era. The 1960s was the golden age of air travel and America’s were absolutely fascinated with “Exotica.” Ephemera from exotic tropical lands around South Asia were all the rage and gave birth to an explosion of tiki motifs in popular American culture. Robert Post Junior and Artist William Westenhaver Created Witco in 1959. The two capitalized on the exotica trend by creating lavishly bold, roughly carved wood furniture and decor. The delightfully dramatic furniture was so beloved during the period that Elvis created an entire “Jungle Room” in his Graceland home featuring Witco furniture! Witco remains a mainstay among collectors today. You can even see original Witco pieces still in use at Graceland, and other iconic tiki venues like Polynesian Gardens, the Hawaiian Inn, and the Aku Tiki Inn all located in Florida. Robert Post Jr. and artist William Westenhaver created Witco Measures: Bar 68" long x 21.5" deep x 42.75" high Stools 12" long x 12" deep x 32" high.
