Flat packed and put together by you with no extra screws or glue, this stool sounds like it’s from Ikea… until you see the price. But, hey, if you’re as desensitized as me, $200 for a stool sounds like a bargain, especially after adding in the designer’s name.
“designed by tom dixon, the offcut stool’s elementary form is the result of several innovations; the circular round seat makes clever use of the curved offcuts, its construction requires no additional screws or glue, and the stool is flat packed for ease of delivery.”
dimensions: 17.7″dia x 17.3″h.
Purchase Information:Price: $235.00

These 100% recycled stool/tables are double the fun (sort of like the gum) with their affordable price tags and quirky made-from-woodscraps design.
Stump series started in the industrial garbage cans in the area near our factory. Small pieces of hardwood are thrown from carpentries in the area in large quantities. Through the series development it became clear that we can reduce costs and become socially involved through passing some of the production to a factory which employs disabled people.
“oli” stool: $195.00
“dodo” side table: $160.00

Cork. It’s a delight to see another stool made from a material with so many positive attributes. (Other cork stools posted: Sway Stool, Rolha Cork Stool, and of course the Cork Table and Stool by Jasper Morrison.)

Material – sustainably harvested cork
Size – 12″ x 11.62″ x 11.62″

Add a tree trunk stool to your home and wait for the squirrels and mice to start helping you clean while they merrily sing along to your favorite tune. Maybe that won’t happen (and maybe it will), but the finish on this stool helps modernize the tree trunk look so that it could easily be at home amongst a contemporary room setting.
This striking contemporary stool is entirely hand crafted [and] features lifelike detail. Made with ceramic which is glazed in matte gunmetal. It has a very elegant finish for a rustic motif but fits equally well in a contemporary home.
Size: 18.50″ h x 15.50″ w x 15.50″ d
Material: ceramic with matte gunmetal finish.
Purchase Information:Price: $360.00

How much would you pay for a handy all-in-one seat, tray, and table that folds away flat? Not $900? I thought so, me either. It’s such a shame; it’s so incredibly smart and useful, yet it’s too steep of a price for most.
Kada is a multifunctional folding seat which has infinite possibilities of use. Its versatility makes it an absolutely transversal object, that fits all spaces and can be changed to fit all situations thanks to its different finish and the possibility of becoming custom-made, according to different layers put on its laminated surface. Its performances change thanks to different uses of the metallic top which can become seating, table or tray.
Technical Description: structure in natural wood or laminated white, grey, black, red neoprene zipper metal top varnished light grey or dark grey.
Size: 13.78″w x 13.78″d x 17.72″h
Purchase Information:Price: $899.00

Uh, how much do you love these tables by Mr. Loebach? If you didn’t say ‘very much’ or were stricken speechless then I don’t know what to do with you. First off, they are tables and step stools, which makes them functional for small spaces, yada yada yada. Second, they are available in some of the best color choices (charcoal, green, and the most delightful shade of blue (in my opinion)). Third, and perhaps most importantly, each table/stool opens at the top (with safety hinged lids) for extra storage. Fourth, they are a little awkward in just how humble they look, and doesn’t that just make you love them more? All that said, I think it’s the colors that make them stand out as wonderful little nesting tables/step stools. Take note they won’t ship until mid-October.
Material: Wood and MDF with safety hinges

Available for pre-order.

Back in November of ’05 one of us posted this Sway Stool. Fast forward to today where it’s $102 more than the orginal price but just as entertaining to own (I’m sure), hence the update.
These stools are made completely from cork that originates as the waste material from the bottle stopper industry. The central column of the stool, located directly under the spine of the user, is flexible, solid cork while the rest is perforated. The result is a seat that flexes and pivots under the weight of the user, responding to the slightest body movement. The user’s muscles remain slightly engaged to maintain balance, improving posture and circulation. Many have reported this to be a perfect seat for working at a desk or computer, enabling the user to move and rock while working and thinking. – dmfd

I always find it interesting when mass retailers sell one of a kind pieces. In this case, CB2 is selling these little stools from 100% reclaimed sal wood retrieved from “older village buildings in India as newer construction moves in”.
“Sanded smooth with matte wax finish. Some cracking and darkening may occur over time. All ready to go, no assembly required.”
Holds up to 200 lbs distributed evenly.

These two entirely intriguing stools are part of MoMA Design Store’s new Destination Brazil collection.
Bate-Papo Stool, $495.00 ($445.50 Members),
Buy it here.
Inspired by stools used in the Brazilian countryside, designer Flavia Pagotti Silva created this contemporary seat. In Portuguese, “bate-papo” refers to an informal conversation between friends. This low, comfortable stool, made of four plywood disks attached to the chair’s frame through ball joints is meant to be used casually and as additional seating in informal settings. Made of plywood, ball joints, recycled rubber, and metal tubing. Size: 14h x 14l x 14″w
Mocho Stool, $550.00 ($495.00 Members), Buy it here.
Designer Sergio Rodrigues favors working with traditional materials like leather, wood, and cane splints in his product designs. The Mocho Stool, an update on the traditional milkmaid’s stool used throughout Brazil, is made of a solid hardwood frame, a single-lathed hollowed seat, and three lathed legs. A handle is incorporated into the design of the stool’s seat, making it easy to transport from place to place. Made of eucalyptus wood.
Size: 15.75h x 17.75″diam.

Made from steel plate, these stools and cabinet have a semi-cartoonish feel about them and in this particular case, that’s a very good thing.
Gentleman’s chamber 1953 is a fusion of nature and interior, traditional elements from a gentleman’s chamber are brought back to their essence and are reinterpreted from the point of view of the animals. This stool is made out of tree trunks or that how it appears to be. On a closer inspection you will notice they are actually made out of steel plate.
Designer:Josef Blersch and Mander Liefting
Material: Steel plate

Hans Sandgren Jakobsen’s award-winning Gallery was originally designed in 1998 for the Copenhagen Art Association and was meant to be a stool guests could sit on while they enjoyed the paintings on show. Gallery is beautiful in its sculptural simplicity. Hidden behind the minimalist design, however, lies an innovative technique that has made it possible to shape a veneer in several dimensions.

Wrapped in foam, this stool can be rolled onto its various surfaces for different seating experiences. It’s not often you get a playful piece of furniture looking so simple (as in, not bright pink or stripes or what not), so I’d say it’s a wonderful choice for extra seating.
“Each position yields a different seating experience: flat, curved, inclined, and the amusing rocker. It is lightweight, durable and versatile. It can be lined-up as bench or scattered in different positions creating a continuously dynamic landscape.”
Black or Gray.
materials: 2.5″ thick foam wrapped around high gloss interior aluminum frame.
dimensions: 18″H x 18″D x 15″W
$385.00, at GO.LO.GOR.SKY.STUDIO
