low stools

Stools now come in all shapes, sizes and colors

I used to think of stools as strictly utilitarian. They were something in a corner you dragged someplace and stood on to reach high places. Things have changed. Stools now come in all heights, designs and colors. While they provide the ability to extend your reach, and are great for extra seating, they are also fun and stylish.  Here is a sampling:

This Linear Stool designed by Eric Trine has a modern, sleek look. It has a solid mango wood seat and a powder coated steel base. It also comes in black, pink, yellow and green. $69.00.


This is a fun multi-colored woven stool with a metal frame so it won’t get bent out of shape. It is made from tightly woven plastic and is lightweight. Put several of these together side by side to create a shelf or a bench. They can be stored under a taller table when not in use. It is 19.5” in diameter. $98.00. It also comes in a Tall size.

This stool is made from banana leaf and can double as a table. It folds easily to be stored away. It will go in any room of the house. 17”h x 21”w x 15”d. $139.99.

I love this fluffy Mongolian Lamb stool. It is covered in Mongolian lamb fur. It has metal legs in an antique brass finish. It is 17 ¾” diameter x 17 ¼” high. $399.


These needlepoint stools come in coral, blue and green and make great footstools or pull up seating. The seat is needlepointed by hand in 100% wool. It is 19 ½”h x 15 ½”square. $269.00.
