Stools

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.

Magazine Stool

Part ridiculous, part genius, these magazine straps take your stack of magazines and tether them into some impromptu seating.

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

Molded beech or cherry wood; lacquered finish.

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

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″:

Molo – textile softseating by forsythe and macallen for molo

“Like the kraft paper version, each of the flexible honeycomb units of textile softseating is modular with magnetic end panels, allowing them to fan open into stools, or for any two or more of the same size pieces to be connected together to create long winding benches and unique seating topographies. the flexible nature and large diameter of the fanning loungers and 36”dia. stools, allows them to be leaned on top of one another, or against walls to create uniquely contoured organic shapes with backrests.

the combinations of joining, stacking and leaning the fanning stools, benches and loungers allows endless possibilities for creating seating environments and interior landscapes.

with use over time, the edges of the textile material will gently soften, creating a unique organic pattern within the crisp honeycomb geometry of the structure.”

Stack Stool by Ruby Metzner and Sather Duke

This is perhaps one of the more expensive stools we’ve ever seen, but it’s such a great combination of colors that it’s easy to forget the price tag.

“Inspired in part by the gears and brightly painted turbines seen in hydroelectric generators, and constructed of reclaimed wood, the Stack Stool by Hivemindesign is the latest in new sustainable design. Seven simple silhouette turnings are stacked in alternating woods and colors to create elements that are both different and alike in each possible configuration.”

Materials: Scrap American Black Walnut, Oak, Poplar. Water-based low-VOC finish.
