Barstools

Poet Stool

This Poet Stool by Misewell might be a tad expensive, but goodness, once you take a look at the construction, you begin to understand why. The three legs are connected to the seat by mortise and tenon joints, which, if you’re not aware, is both a simple and strong joint that needs to be cut exactly to specification. Steel connects each leg, further strengthening the structure and providing a perfect ledge to rest your feet. Handmade and assembled in Milwaukee.

Matégot Nagasaki Stool

$450 for a barstool might just be a little above your budget, but, even so, let’s just spend a moment admiring this barstool designed by Mathieu Matégot . Who’s he? Apparently, he’s the guy that first combined metal tubing with with perforated sheet metal. Thank you Mr. Matégot.

Life After Corkage Bar Stool + Ottoman

Hmm. What to do with 2,500 wine and champagne corks? Make an ottoman and barstool out of them and then sell it/them for $980 (I think they’re sold as a set, but I’ve got an email out to double check). Now, who has enough corks lying around to try a DIY version of this?

Whoa, update: it’s $980 each, not sold as set.

Sean Dix Factory Stool

I’d say this is a pretty good price for a modern stool, no? At 27″ high, it’s the right height for a high-ish counter or bar area and powder-coated steel means it can take a beating.

BCN Barstool

How often do you think of barstools as comfortable? Designers Harry & Camilla chose an industrial plastic to form a curved seat that has flex and give, and although I’m not sure how much ‘spring’ there is, it’s sure looks more comfortable than other barstools.

bottegaMontana Stools

The left walnut stool has a humble name yet is reminiscent of the Eames Time Life Stools (it follows that the price makes a little more sense when noting the cost of the Eames Stools). Also notable is their other colorful stools, some of which are outdoor friendly (thanks Jake!).

Scoop Stool by Turnstone

I like the idea behind this stool.

“One of the design goals for Turnstone’s Scoop Stool was to avoid competing with the architecture of a space. Inspired by a grain scoop, this casual stool is a perfect compliment to a modern home or business groupspace.”

Sodium white plastic seat, Platinum painted steel wire frame
