Take a seat | The humble stool

Sep 26, 2014

Mixing stools with existing benches and chairs creates a warm inviting feel that screams casual entertaining.


Stools have been around for eons. Today, the stool is not just used for seating but as a show piece that can make or break a room. There are so many materials and colours available, the options are endless – timber, polypropylene, polycarbonate, aluminium, stone, concrete, upholstered, transparent, bright colours, shiny or matt and the list goes on.

Here are some stools we are loving:
