Wine Barrel Rocking Chair with Italian Merlot Leather

The Hungarian Workshop has been San Diego’s number one place to order fine quality Wine barrel furniture. In past four years we have teamed up with Stone Brewing Company and haven’t slowed down since. Another big client of ours has been couple of the local Whole Foods Markets and few smaller local brewery’s tasting rooms.

In past year I have been doing a lot of product and development and we have entered a whole new demographic of strictly interior design. The concept of adding fine leather to our current pieces become evident after our products were needed in more and more interior location. By end of the summer we will have the whole new leather line available online and most likely in a couple retail store.

The Chair –

We handcraft each chair from a single wine barrel that is the perfect shape and size for a rocker. Many people often think you can use just about any barrel, but in fact it is important to use a short and round one. Likely a Cabernet barrel will fit that description. They have a much bigger curve radius and wider staves that work very well. All major joints have support brackets underneath for additional reinforcement which we make our self from the Wine Barrel’s rings. All the other hardware is stainless steel for great quality and a high end look. For the finish we use Brazilian Rosewood which protects the oak while bringing out the beautiful grain pattern and patina.

The backrest and seat feature the fine Italian leather upholstered by hand in a tufted style.

Italian Full-Grain Leather 

FULL-GRAIN has been a favorite for a long time that has a very natural look and feel with a generous color palette. Unlike top-grain leather, the surface is left naked. It is aniline-drum dyed and softer to the touch. For anyone who is a true leather purists and those who appreciate the beautiful patina that is enhanced with age.

These are the NEW colors available later this month!




We are currently working on a few new products which will have these fine leather colors available. Please sign up for our newsletter and follow us on social media to see what new items and current project we are working on.

NEW Whiskey Barrel Lounge Chair

“The NEW Whiskey Barrel Lounge Chair is here!”

The NEW Whiskey Barrel Lounge ChairThis is true and now you can be the first one to own the NEW Whiskey Barrel Lounge Chair. If you already an owner of a Hungarian Workshop product you definitely don’t want to miss out on our latest creation.

Made completely out of old Whiskey Barrels, (as usual) this lounge chair is designed simply for relaxing. Ideal for any room in the house and can be a beautiful piece in the office to impress clients and co-workers. Each chair is handcrafted with care and finished with high quality Brazilian Rosewood Oil to bring out the wood’s natural patinas while protecting it. Whether you’re reading a book, playing on your mobile device or just enjoying your favorite whiskey, this is one lounge chair you won’t want get out of.

Whiskey Barrel Lounge Chair | Hungarian WorkshopThis chairs designed actually plays a pretty important roll for my company, the Hungarian Workshop. When we construct our Whiskey Barrel Furniture we usually are left with a whole bunch of the smaller 1.5″ wide staves that we couldn’t use. By using mostly our thin left overs, I improved material usage and profit margins. YAY!

I Once I started playing around getting the seating in correct shape I was aiming for, the rest then just started falling into right place. By using one or two design elements from our other pieces I was able to create a sturdy foundation that can with stand very heavy loads. Surprisingly I didn’t even try to draw anything down or start at any standard measurements. Most often when I try to do that, the whole plan goes up in smoke and I end up free handing everything. Sometime this method works great however the finished product can be so different you may find a completely new piece starring back at you.

Repurposed Furniture San Diego - Wine Barrel Chair and Side TableRepurposed Furniture San Diego:

Repurposed, up-cycled, recycled and re-used is what a lot of people are looking for these days when it comes to furniture. And not just the interior designer who is looking to give that certain living space a rustic kick. There are many individual who are looking to go green by doing more than just throwing away their plastic bottles and cans in that big blue bin. Owning repurposed furniture is great way to keep more trees from being cut down and reducing on our waste. But don’t forget, anything can be reused. Whether it’s wood, metal or any sort of plastic if you think you can give it a new life, it’s worth a shot.

Repurposed Furniture San Diego - 100 Whiskey Barrels | Hungarian Workshop

Wine & Whiskey Barrel Furniture

The Hungarian Workshop’s main focus is on up-cycled Wine and Whiskey Barrel Furniture. The company started out in 2010 making standard outdoor patio furniture and in 2012 transitioned into repurposing old barrels. Barrels are made from either French, Hungarian or American White Oak. The wood is a solid, sturdy and durable material which is great for furniture and it’s a shame to see them thrown away. Certain wineries and distilleries go through hundreds of barrels a year and I am just glad to know my company is helping out. So far we have turned well over 400 barrels into furniture and we are not showing any signs of slowing down just yet.

New Stone Brewing Company Locations in Petco Park

“Two new stone brewing company locations by one great stadium!”

New stone brewing company locations right on the roof top by the palm trees! Last week I received an email from one of the project mangers telling me there is yet another new Stone Brewing Company location. I figured it would be just a regular tasting room somewhere ordinary. When I found out it was going to be at Petco Park I was very excited and a bit surprised. Normally I would have heard of a new project going up since the Hungarian Workshop supplies pretty much all their location with at least a few Whiskey Barrel Furniture. Usually orders would take us a few weeks but this time all we had was 4 days.

With opening night just around the corner we put everything on hold and rushed to pick up Stone’s old and used barrels. Luckily San Diego had great weather that week and it was warm and sunny letting the barrels dry out just enough to get started.  After a few hectic days we finished all four chairs 100% by saturday night.New stone brewing company locations in Petco Park | Hungarian Workshop

One of the new stone brewing company locations in Petco Park is on the sixth floor right behind home plate. It is on the rooftop above Hodad’s with a beautiful view of the Coronado bridge and the convention center. Pretty much one of the best locations in the stadium in my book. The other spot is their new tap room down by the lawn area just outside the gates. I was already told they want six more chairs and there will be an order placed for the tap room in the near future!

Whiskey Barrel Chairs at Petco ParkWith Stone Brewing Company and Whole Foods under our belts I definitely see a huge boom in business this year. Not to mention we are currently working on a deal with

Whole Planet Foundation

“Whole Planet Foundation ’s mission is poverty alleviation through microcredit in communities around the world that supply Whole Foods Market stores with products.”

Their Approach

Whole Planet Foundation is a private, nonprofit organization established by Whole Foods Market. They provide grants to microfinance institutions in Asia, Africa, the Americas and the Middle East. Who in turn develop and offer microenterprise loan programs, training and other financial services to the self-employed poor.


Whole Planet Foundation was born out of Whole Foods Market’s desire to give something back to those who have helped them succeed. While focusing on the persistent problem of world poverty and hunger. The foundation was formed with the entrepreneurial spirit of Whole Foods Market in partnership with Professor Muhammad Yunus and Grameen Bank, co-recipients of the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize.

Whole Planet Foundation - Donated Wine Barrel Chair | Hungarian WorkshopThe Charity Event

Yesterday the Hungarian Workshop donated a Wine Barrel Chair and a Whiskey Barrel Skateboard to a Whole Planet Foundation fund raiser. The event took place at Hess Brewing Company in North Park, San Diego. The whole place was jam pack with good people, great beer, delicious food and live music. It was basically a fun party that I’m glad I was apart of.

Whole Planet Foundation charity event at Hess Brewing Co. | Hungarian WorkshopThe items we donated sold very well, it was exciting to see people have a bidding war over something I made. The Whiskey Barrel Skateboard was something that people who don’t even skateboard wanted. A unique piece like that usually brings people to take second look. The Wine Barrel Chair was the hot ticket item of the night and it sold for 4 times the amount from the starting price!

Over all it was a great time with huge turnout of people. Next year I’ll be prepared to donate more items and put the word out for the Whole Planet Foundation.

Which is a good thing, why shouldn’t they have great confidence in their work? But like most often, the company’s sales and clients are an excellent way to tell who has what it takes. Wine & Whiskey Barrel furniture have been around for a very long time and its crazy for one to think theirs are the original.

As long as its true and not a gimmick I am totally for it. There is plenty of reusable material out in the world and with a little bit of imaginations & creativity you’d be surprised of the possibilities.

The Hungarian Workshop started just like most custom furniture businesses, in a small garage with limited amount of tools and space. In three and half years we have come a long way, taking on huge volumes and build our clientele list with some big names. Stone Brewing Company in Southern California, Cleveland Art based out of Ohio is helping us grow bigger and faster everyday. And now with Whole Foods Market on the list I can’t wait to see whats next.

Wine Barrel Chairs at Stone Brewing


“We have been making the wine barrel chairs at stone brewing company for almost two years now!”

Whiskey & wine barrel chairs at stone brewing | Hungarian WorkshopIf you were wondering who has made the wine barrel chairs at stone brewing, look no further. It was the Hungarian Workshop. It’s hard to believe that were are coming up on two years since I have been doing business with good old Stone. The best part about our relationship is that Stone Brewing Company is actually the ones who got me started with the whole up-cycled barrel furniture business. Working with them has been a blast and I am happy to say we still have plenty of work ahead of us.

Whiskey and Wine Barrel Chairs at Stone Brewing by The Hungarian WorkshopIf you haven’t had anytime to read through our About Page or Furniture Info Page, I will go ahead and give you the short version here.  I first got contacted through my Etsy page by one of the general managers from the Escondido Stone location. They were interested in my Redwood Furniture and with no time they bought a few for their garden area. As I was dropped off their first big order, I noticed a large container overfilling with old dirty Whiskey Barrel Staves. The bistro manager told me take a few pieces back and see if can make an Adirondack style chair. After I made them only one chair, Stone saw this great opportunity and environmentally friendly way to re-cycle their old barrels and rest is history.

Whiskey Barrel Chair #141 | Hungarian WorkshopIt takes one barrel to make one chair. I give the option to all my customers on the backrest style; Open or Closed Tops. Wine barrel chairs at stone brewing most often have the closed top and the Whiskey barrel ones stay open. The reason for that is because Whiskey barrels tend to come with more smaller size stave which are ideal for the open top style and wine barrels with much wider ones that are better for the closed top version.

If you are interested in our furniture please feel free to browse throughout the website and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.
