Stools Worth The Steal

Stools are a subtle and versatile furniture item. They fit in living rooms, cafeterias, bars, libraries, and most social settings. They can be designed to look as simple and luxurious as you want them to be. For the most part, stools are great seating options in offices as well. 

If you’re looking at a couple of new seating options to mix up your seating design, check out these product picks. 

Sprout Stool by Teknion

Designer Thomas Pedersen uses organic lines and simple details to create the Sprout Stool.  Sprout is inspired by nature − budding flowers, foliage and branches at varying stages of size and growth. It works solo or can be part of a larger arrangement of similar or varying colours and textures. Sprout’s sturdily constructed metal trumpet base and support can be finished in any Teknion paint colour, creating endless possibilities when married with Luum Textiles upholstery options.

Se:spot by Sedus

Available in 3 different heights, this stool fit a variety of settings, allowing you keep the design consistent across them all. From casually chilling in canteens and break areas to professional and practical in meeting rooms, the chairs appeal with their comfortable and attractive design. What makes the se:spot stool particularly ingenious is the intermediate “studio” height. The user can sit down and stand up spontaneously – depending on what is required.

Ballo by Humanscale

It should come as no surprise that Humanscale – master of all things ergonomic – would design a superior stool like Ballo. It’s Don Chadwick’s vision of what a multipurpose stool should be—fun, engaging and perfect for short-term, active sitting in the home or office. With a compact central column and lightweight air-filled domes, Ballo is an imaginative take on traditional ball chairs, supporting flexibility and freedom of movement.

Timba by Bene

This swivel stool by Bene adds dynamism to the office. Timba fits well into collaborative office spaces with its contemporary design. The round seat of the stool swivels and ensures ideal mobility whilst talking. A model with a backrest is also available, which provides more stability as a storage place or support. Timba really achieves that sophisticated look with the use of wood as the primary material. The four slightly tapered legs create a conical shape towards the ground and are made of solid oak, either natural or stained in graphite – this gives Timba that charming cosy touch and solidity.

Stand UPis1 by Interstuhl

For those moments when you’re neither standing or sitting, Interstuhl has the perfect product. The Stand UPis1 stool, with its vivacious colors and adjustable height, not only powers the aesthetics of a room but also provides the right comfort. Lean, stand or still, Stand UPis1 has your back.
