Stools

Balloona Stool

500 balloons tied one by one to this stool…I’m kind of surprised the price isn’t higher. Goodness knows if I spent that kind of time on something I’d want more money for it.

A playful disposition. Over 500 balloons are tied on a solid wood stool. Designer Natalie Kruch has a penchant for making the ordinary beautiful and intriguing. The BALLOONA stool is Natalie’s first object with Umbra, after graduating from the University of Alberta, Canada.

Size: 14 x 17 x 14″ (36 x 43 x 36 cm).

Eco-Friendly Stool Table

Talk about some summer colors, these stools are hand painted with a VOC-free milk paint, just like in the old days.

…the tables are made in New Mexico from locally-harvested Pine logs historically used in traditional Adobe homes as exposed ceiling beams called Vigas. Dried in a solar kiln, harnessing the energy of tomorrow, they have a 100% natural finish free of toxins. Hand-painted with a VOC-free milk paint, the hand-mixed colors, which include Federal Blue, Tavern Green, Marigold Yellow, Dove Gray, and Glazed Terracotta, are made with the same basic ingredients used during the Colonial era – milk protein, lime and earth pigments. Finished with a clear non-toxic topcoat, the tables are rubbed with a layer of an all-natural beeswax and lemon oil wood wax created by an 18th Century/Early American cabinetmaker.

Sheep by Sam Brown

These sheep might be just the thing to add a little touch of playfulness to a room.

“Born and bred on the Isle of Wight, although the Sheepskin is from New Zealand. Sheep seats make perfect city pets. There’s no need for a garden and these Sheep seats make great occasional seating with fun personalities. Perfect for adults and kids to sit on, and the child sheep can even be used as a footstool.”

Black/Ivory New Zealand sheepskin. Beech-wood legs with rubber “hooves”.

Dimensions: Adult H 64, W x D 61 cm; Child H 40, W x D 35 cm

Holey Stump

These are great. I can see them being used as stools or even as bedside tables. The little nooks could be used for a small book, a remote control, your cell phone, glasses, or any number of things that people like to keep close at night.

Available in aqua, black, green and white.

Terra Stool by Roost

The thick wood on top of such (seemingly) spindly iron legs makes for an interesting little stool/table.

“Made from renewable acacia wood atop three sturdy, hand-forged iron legs, these quirky pieces make rustic stools or side tables. Some checking (radial cracking) to be expected. Some assembly is required.”

Small: 12 1/2″ dia x 14″ h, $130.00
Medium: 12 1/2″ dia x 18 1/2″ h, $150.00

Icon Stool by Matthias Demacker

“There is no mistaking the minimalist look of Matthias Demacker’s Icon stool! The piece is made from two sheets of aluminum, bent and welded into two dramatic, triangular shapes. The segments meet at their most precarious points, but the stool remains perfectly balanced! A fantastic example of formal reductionism!

Stackable and compact, the Icon is available in red, black, white or aluminum with a removable, black cushion.”

Taburet M Stacking Stool

‘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.’

Molded beech or cherry wood; lacquered finish.
H 18″ W 18″ D 11.75″

Cadiz and Zinc Stool by John Reeves

I’m not quite sure where I first saw these, but each are entirely unique stools without the shocking price tag you’d normally expect (not that they’re cheap, they’re just a little more affordable than some of the designer pieces out there).

Cadiz Stool, White Porcelain, 18″ x 14″ x 14″, $525.00:
“The stools are shod with teak shoes to match the top of the accompanying table and also prevent the glazed edge of the porcelain from chipping against the floor.”

Louis Zinc Stool, Zinc Finish, 16″ x 16″ x 17.5″, $387.50:
“Cold pressed saddle seat in mild steel, stamped out Louis profiles legs folded at 90 degrees and welded by hand create this charming metal stool. Finished in an industrial zinc plate to allow for outdoor use; to compliment the Louis Zinc Table. Stackable stool in steel with a zinc plated outdoor finish..”

Designed by John Reeves of Reeves Design.

Bitters Co. Sculpted Stools and Tables

The thick hand carved seats and backs of these stools gives an almost cushion-like quality to the wood. I also like the idea of the folding tables for tight spots or when an extra surface is needed.

favored reclaimed Douglas fir. Oil and wax finish, darkened metal legs.”

17″ High Table: 15″w. x 20″l. x 17″h, $240.00
28″ High Table: 15″w. x 20″l. x 28″h, $280.00

Sculpted Stools: “Pieces of
reclaimed Douglas fir are individually hand carved to create the seat and back rest of each stool. The metal has a darkened finish.” Available in three sizes, 15″(w/o back rest), 26″, 30″:
