Stools

Taburet M Stacking Stool

These stools are understatedly elegant AND affordable. I can picture them in an office, used as dining chairs, or even just in a living room as extra seating. Currently on sale, the Taburet M Stacking Stool is available in Birch, Cherry and Black.

“The Taburet M Stacking Stool is almost pure abstraction, making minimum impact on space and redefining “seat” in the simplest sense. Yet, the stool is quite substantial, offering a low, comfortable seat suited to a retail setting, showroom, gallery or reception area. The Taburet M Stacking Stool was designed by Danish craftsman/designer Jorgen Moller, who, along with Bruno Mathsson, became one of the early leading exponents of modern Danish design. Like Mathsson, Moller sought new solutions rather than drawing from tradition,and created light, minimal structures.”

Knoll Sale/Prince Aha Stool

Knoll’s having a sale until tomorrow so now’s your last chance to get a Barcelona Chair, Tulip table or other Knoll designs on the cheap! (I’m using the word “cheap” in a relative nature).

The Aha Stool (seen peeking from behind the case study bed) was designed by Philippe Starck and is now very much within financial reach for most of us). The great thing about this stool is that you can use it for seating, table or storage, and it can be used both indoor or out.

Becca Stools

I feel more zen-like by just looking at this chair. Whatever that means.

“Like a light-boned, graceful bird, the Becca Stool seems only momentarily perched. It strains upward, ready to take to the sky again and glide away. You almost feel that you have to sit down on it to keep it from escaping, but the fine craftsmanship of this stool makes that a pleasure. And for when you’re not at home, you can keep it weighted down by using the bottom as a shelf for extra (stylish) storage.”

Steel Scoop Stool

So, you want super-duper-future-modern, do you? How ’bout this stool? Made of 1/4″ brushed steel plate, it certainly has clean hard lines, and if that doesn’t classify as super(d.f.)-modern, I don’t know what will.

Time Life Stools

Here’s a secret about me. I’m cheap. Some may call that frugal. Anyway, I don’t really ever like to pay retail so I try to shop around and get the best price, which is why I love the internet. I really want one of the Time Life Stools and they retail at around $700. I think the pricing is all kind of arbitrary. If they retailed for $1400 then I would buy two at $700 because I was getting a good deal. But since they retail at $700 I want to try to do better. It’s a sickness, really. But here’s the good news: I found a place where you can buy them for $629 with no tax and free shipping. So there you go.
