Our selection of wine barrel furniture is handcrafted with high quality and attention to detail. Our designs are created for high end commercial use making them top of the line. If you ever visited a Stone Brewing Company location you probably have seen our creations. The Hungarian Workshop teamed up with Stone back in 2012 and about 20% of our business goes to them. Of the 800+ barrel lounge chairs we have created about 160 is residing in one of their many many locations. They definitely keep us busy.

Another reason why our Wine and Bourbon barrel furniture line is booming is because of our Interior Leather line. Lots of people with custom wine cellars, man caves or other dedicated home space for wine wanted to bring barrel furniture indoors. To do so I figured adding fine leather upholstery would help increase sales. The leather we use are Italian Full Grain hides. We offer seven different color options and soon we might add a couple more.

“The lounge chairs with tufted upholstery are one of the most comfortable and unique pieces you can own!”

The chair to the left is a wine barrel chair with the Merlot leather option. The curvatures of the barrel staves form perfectly to your body and the 3 inch soft cushioning increases the comfort level to the max. You can replace any old accent chair with one of our finely crafted barrel lounge chairs today. Sale happening now!

If you have someone who is a big fan of whiskey we also have these chairs available made from reclaimed whiskey barrels. The wood will be darker and the inside of the barrel will be black from the charring the distillers put the barrels through. You can read and find out lot more information on the two types of barrels in our Furniture Info page.

Los Angeles Wine Barrel Furniture

“We have southern California’s most beautiful handcrafted Wine Barrel Furniture. See most of our creations at all Stone Brewing Company location.”

Welcome to the Hungarian Workshop! We have been in business for over six years and we have been expending our furniture line every year. Just this year we added a new Tennessee Whiskey line for those true JD fans. Only a limited availability on these so don’t hesitate!

When it comes to Wine Barrel Furniture we have a beautiful selection along with an Interior Leather line where we upholster Wine and Bourbon barrel furniture with Italian Full Grain leather. Making them truly one of a kind and unique. We work with many designer, interior and exterior and offer designer discounts.

Our best sellers are the Wine and Bourbon barrel lounge chairs. They come in a few varieties. You can choose the backrest style, whether you want them to be rocking chairs and or if you’d prefer the interior leather version. Since the beginning we started making these lounge chairs (Adirondack style), the Hungarian Workshop has created over 800 along with hundreds of other pieces.

If you don’t happen to live near us here in southern California don’t worry we can ship all over the world. The last chair we sent overseas landed in Germany. It was barrel chair #521.

Our other Wine Barrel furniture include Pub Stools, Pub Tables, three different style end tables, ottomans and benches. All furniture pieces are finished with Brazilian Rosewood Oil making upkeep very easy. Once the wood feels a bit dry, all you have to do is re-wipe it with the oil and you are good to go. When you store the furniture indoors like the interior leather line, re-oiling will be almost unnecessary. I personally prefer to use bees was and mineral oil on interior items a couple times a year. Thats just because I like to keep the wood smooth as possible at all the times. These oils are something you can pick up at any home improvement store like Home Depot and Lowe’s.

An important factor to keep in mind when it comes to Wine Barrel furniture is that the red coloring is not permanent. I repeat, it’s not forever. The stain left behind from the wine is an organic color staining which will eventually fade. Especially in the sun light. The UV rays will suck the red out and turn it to a light or dark brown. Depends how dark the red was. Under the Wine Barrel Furniture section of our shop I have additional info in regards of these characteristics. Click here to learn more.

Right now we are also working on a new leather addition to our collection. I started Pre-Orders for this product to fast track its catalog photo shoots and over all launch. Since the holidays are coming up we want to prevent heavy amounts of back orders.

If you have any other questions or would like a little more info on anything please don’t hesitate to contact us. You can also email me directly at balazs@hungarianworkshop.com

Bourbon Decor

“Shop for the perfect Bourbon Decor throughout our nine shop sections and find just what you are looking for. CLICK HERE TO SEE THE SHOP

The Furniture –

The most sought after items when people are looking for the right Bourbon Decor is often in our furniture line. The bourbon barrel lounge chairs are the best seller and for good reason. We offer them in a couple different varieties: two back rest style, rocking chair version, tufted leather upholstery or our newest which is the cushioned and leather wrapped lounge chair.

Bourbon DecorBourbon Barrel Lounge Chairs

The standard lounge chair comes in two backrest styles. We call them the “Open Top” and “Closed Top”. This refers to the top peak of the chair’s backrest. Both options sell very well, just about 50-50 so after six years we are still happy to make them both.

Bourbon DecorRecurved Bourbon Rockers

The Recurved Rocker is one of my proudest innovations. While many others simply place a regular old barrel stave for the rocking feet we actually re-bend the wood into a much more curved stave. This allows for a better rocking motion.

Interior Leather Line

The Interior Leather Line is a must for any true bourbon or wine fan. Very similar as our lounge chairs but these feature fully tufted cushioning for the back rest and the seat. We offer seven different color options and we might have some more in the near future. We also offer matching tufted ottomans as well.

Leather Wrapped Lounge Chair

Our most recent addition is the leather wrapped interior lounge chair. Production is underway and we are taking pre-orders as of right now. The wait time is bit longer but you get to save about 22%. These are the same exact lounge chairs but now with extra comfort and style. You can choose to have them be made from Bourbon Whiskey barrels or Wine Barrels. The seven leather color options are also available for these too. They are available in the Pre-Order section of our shop. By end of the month we should have them in our catalog with more photos.

Home Decor and Accessories

Next we have all the home goodies. In the Home Decor and Accessories page we offer many different Bourbon Decor and Wine Decor. From a few simple small items like tap handles and coasters all the way to clocks, skateboards and chess sets. All of these items are handmade from reclaimed barrels just like our furniture. Most of these are top sellers during the holiday season so if you are thinking about ordering please don’t hesitate. Being October now, we usually start seeing a heavy flow of orders and if you put it off till end of November you may not receive the item in time.

Be sure to sign up for our Online newsletter to save 16% on furniture which are not on sale already. Please follow us on Instagram and Facebook to see what new items we are working on currently. Thank You for stopping by and have great day.

San Diego Barrel Furniture

“San Diego Barrel Furniture by the Hungarian Workshop. If you ever visited a Stone Brewing Company location you most likely have sat in one of our chairs. “

We are currently running a big sale on most of our barrel furniture. Right now the sale is mainly focused on our Kentucky Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey barrel furniture. All our pieces are handcrafted and were designed for comfort and elegance. Our most popular and best seller is our Lounge Chairs which we have created over 800 of in the past six years. These chairs come in a couple different variations. You can choose to have them made from Wine or Whisky barrels, and also what style you want to back rest to be. Weather you want them to be rocking chairs and if you prefer and interior version with Italian leather upholstery.

When you are deciding between Wine or Whiskey (Bourbon) keep in mind wine is more of a lighter oak with red stains left behind from the wine itself. Bourbon whiskey barrels are much more darker with brown, black and dark green patinas. The inside is charred black. We offer much more information on Wine and Bourbon barrels so if you would like to do a little bit more reading on this subject please click the links and scroll to the bottom of the page. (Wine) (Bourbon)

There is the “Closed Top” and “Open Top” back rest option, both feel great and now you have choice to mix and match sets.

The other option is if you want your chair to be a rocking chair. Our signature Recurved Rockers are one of kind since we actually re-bend the wood to allow a proper rocking motion. Barrels them self don’t actually have a clean and steady curve so this concept creates the best rockers on the market.

“Relax and sip on your favorite wine, whiskey or beer in style.”

The last and final option you can choose is the Italian leather upholstery version. If you prefer to go the high end interior route, you can now have a beautifully tufted upholstered barrel chair handcrafted strictly for indoors. The seat and backrest have a thick and soft cushioning which makes these chair the finest quality all around. We offer six different colors:

  • Bourbon
  • Sangria
  • Merlot
  • Espresso
  • Stout
  • Scotch

The interior leather chairs are usually not on sale since a lot of work goes into making them. Since they are mostly made to order we won’t have a bunch sitting around waiting to go on sale. Estimated time of completion for them is about 4-6 weeks. The leather its self comes from Italy so please be patient.

Right now for our standard Bourbon Barrel Lounge Chairs we are offering 30%OFF. And most other Bourbon Barrel furniture are on sale for 20%OFF. This sale will be going all month long!

Tennessee Whiskey Barrel Furniture

“We now have a couple Tennessee Whiskey Barrel Furniture avaiable for those true JD whiskey collectors. Limited supplies available. Act now!”

In the recent few months we have acquired some amazing JD barrels. They feature the company’s brand showing off the barrels true history. These are a must have for any whiskey collector who is a fan of the brand. The only thing is, these are very limited and may not always available. In the past 5 years we have only came across a couple dozen. Our suppliers receive barrels mostly from Kentucky so obtaining these Tennessee Whiskey ones is rare. Each product in the category list will say how many is available for purchase at that time.

Tennessee Whiskey Barrel Furniture
Tennessee Whiskey Barrel Furniture

In our Tennessee Whiskey collection we have three items and one set which is made up of three pieces. Since it is the most popular item we make, we have the lounge chairs of course, and the Recurved Rockers available in the Tennessee Whiskey option. We also came out with a new nightstand design which is also available in regular bourbon and wine barrel version too. The set we offer is a Pub Table and two Pub Stools with a memory swivel to go along with the table.

Tennessee Whiskey Barrel FurnitureThe Lounge Chair – Tennessee Whiskey Style

This is our standard very popular lounge chair design that is loved by many. Same model and measurements all around. The main difference is just the branded logos put on by the company. We try to use about five staves which feature some part of the brand. The two front legs and one arm will have distinguished marking. Since the complete logo often lands of a few small skinny staves, we try to use those as well which work great for some parts in the back.

The Recurved Rocker 

This piece will pretty much feature the same elements that the standard lounge chair will.  Five stave will show off the branding. The recurved bottom stave will allow for a sweet rocking motion while you relax with your favorite beverage.

Tennessee Whiskey Barrel Furniture The Nightstand –

Our new nightstand is very similar to our end tables. They are a little shorter (20″) to accommodate a standard bed height and feature a bottom shelve for any additional storage that maybe needed. These are available in Bourbon and Wine barrel as well. The Tennessee Whiskey versions will have a branded top with the full JD brand.

Tennessee Whiskey Barrel Furniture The Pub Set –

Last but not least is our Tennessee Whiskey Pub Set. The set is made up of one of our signature Pub Table and two Pub Stools to go along with it. The pub table will have a fully branded top and the stools will have couple of their leg staves branded as well. Making it a true Tennessee Whiskey barrel furniture set.

All these items are also available in regular bourbon and wine barrel versions. If you have any additional question of would like just a little more information on anything please don’t hesitate to contact us or email me directly. balazs@hungarianworkshop.com

Have a great day, Cheers!

Whiskey Barrel Skateboards – Tennessee Whiskey Edition

“We have been selling our signature Whiskey Barrel Skateboards for over 5 years! Now, we are offering the limited edition Tennessee Whiskey Barrel Boards.”

The Hungarian Workshop is the originator of the whiskey barrel skateboard movement. Five years ago I plained some staves just the right way and attached them together to create a unique and one of  kind barrel skateboard. Since then our design has been in magazines and even received a full page add in the Wine Enthusiast. Now, with a few extra barrels left over, we are offering the Tennessee Whiskey barrel themed boards. Ideal for any side walk surfers who are looking for a rare and fun item to show off. Or the true whiskey collector looking for that special conversation piece to hang in their man cave.

This is a very limited offer since we don’t usually have these barrels in stock. They are hard to come by and come at a high price. Sometimes we get lucky enough to find a few in our truck loads.

All Whiskey Barrel Skateboards are about 30 inches long and 8-9 inches wide. The decks are one inches thick solid oak and is very heavy duty and durable. The trucks are more of a longboard style cruiser so don’t expect to hit the skateparks up and start grinding right away. If you can, more power to you! Send us a few action shots! I would be happy to post them on our social media sites.

Be sure to sign up for our newsletter this month. We will be offering a couple other Tennessee Whiskey themed furniture. Please note that these are rare and hard to come by barrels so our availability will be scarce.

You can also follow us on our social media site and see what new items we are working on currently!

As always, thank you for stoping by the Hungarian Workshop and have great day.

Wine Barrel Rocking Chairs

“Our Recurved Staves make for a solid and hefty rocking motion no other companies implement in their product.”

Wine Barrel Rocking Chairs

We at the Hungarian Workshop aim to to provide one of kind and the highest quality barrel furniture and home decor available. We have been in business for over six years now and our craftsmanship will speak for it’s self. From my first barrel chair I made, I knew this was the style of woodworking and design I wanted to continue in. Not to mention that obvious and clear sign I received was when I found a random Hungarian Oak Wine Barrel which had my name (Balazs) laser engraved into it. Apparently there is a Hungarian Cooperage who’s company name is same as mine! This is a unique and entertaining story I will leave for another time.

Wine Barrel Rocking Chairs

Wine Barrel Rocking ChairsAfter I made a few Wine Barrel Rocking Chairs I felt something was off. In a bad way. Even though I used some amazing Bear Boat Cabernet Sauvignon barrels which were short and round. They had the most curvature available but not what I would have liked. Most people don’t realize that wine barrels don’t have the proper curvature needed to make a rocking chair. Even the best ones have more of a kink in middle rather than a smooth bend. After this discovery, I know I had to do something which would make the Hungarian Workshop stand out from the rest. If you are a high end woodworker you probably can figure out the solution and method we use to create the Recurved Rocker Staves. If you are not, then it will have to stay as a trade secrete for now. Haha.

Wine Barrel Rocking ChairsOnce we got the bottom staves curved to where the chairs could roll back and forth the ideal amount, I knew we had a leg up on the competition. Soon after the newsletter went out, the products where flying off the shelve. Sort of speak. And even better, our Recurved Bourbon Whiskey Barrel Chairs are the only ones on the market. Whiskey barrels have almost no curvature so to be able to offer a proper whiskey barrel rocker we turned into the number one retailer for them.  Cheers!

Over 750 Barrel Chairs Made!

Wine Barrel Rocking ChairsOur Recurved Wine Barrel Rocking Chairs and recurved Bourbon Barrel Rocking Chairs are also available in an interior version where they feature handcrafted Full Grain Italian Leather Upholstery. We have six leather colors available.

Sometimes our furniture go on sale through our Online Newsletter. I highly recommend signing up. We send out a newsletter once a month and when you sign up you also receive a coupon code instantly just for being a supporter of our craft.

Stone Brewing Barrel Chairs

“So far we have handcrafted over 750 of the barrel lounge chairs alone. Those we keep numbered and tagged.”

Stone Brewing Barrel ChairsThis year we will be getting into our 800th barrel lounge chairs. (Stone Brewing Barrel Chairs) We produce anywhere from 100-150 a year. Stone alone will have us make about 20-30 a year. They are an amazing company to work with and since they are opening so many locations world wide the request for more chairs and other furniture keep pouring in. Just last month they were figuring out the logistics on how to get 50 chairs over the Berlin, Germany. Even though it would be a $hit ton of work, we are ready to go for them at any given time.

The phrase Stone Brewing Barrel Chairs is a popular way people refer to our work and even though we are a separate company it I don’t mind it at all. They are one of San Diego’s largest craft breweries. I am happy to be working with Stone. Plus they make my favorite IPA’s.

The barrel lounge chairs line pretty much started over at their Escondido location. If you go browse around in their beer garden you might be able to find chair #2! I have chair #1 on my deck. Over the years the design definitely has been upgraded and new type of hardware and finishes has been implemented as well.

Stone Brewing Barrel Chairs – Hungarian Workshop inventory update:

Stone Brewing Barrel ChairsThis summer I am putting a hold on our Home Decor and Accessories items and a couple of our less frequently ordered furniture. What this means I will be phasing out the “Made To Order” concept. So for a while some items will show up as Out OF Stock. This will give us plenty of time to focus on building a huge inventory. Allowing us to start shipping out order within the week they are ordered. No more waiting 2-3 weeks or sometimes even 4-6 weeks to receive your furniture.

Once we have what i would call the appropriate amount of furniture in stock, we will start building our Home Decor and Accessories items too. Which will work out perfectly since end of summer is when we have to begin for the holiday restock. You can never be too early for the Christmas rush. I feel like for the past years we have been starting a couple weeks earlier and earlier. As your business grows so will your customer base.

Stone Brewing Barrel Chairs – NEW Distillery Brand Available In July

Stone Brewing Barrel ChairsI have been posting about this news a couple times before and because I usually get several emails a month people asking me, I will continue spreading the word. Starting in July the Hungarian Workshop will have quite a few Jack Daniel’s Barrel lounge chair sets available for purchase. We have been collecting them since they are a rare find and also found a couple secrete suppliers. Unfortunately these barrels are not cheap for us but bartering does help. Ha. Sign up for our online newsletter to be in the loop when they official become available.

Cheers!
