Molded Plastic Eiffel Stool with Wood Legs

The Molded Plastic Eiffel Stool with Wood Legs design is taken from the mid-century modern original by famous designers Charles and Ray Eames. A variation on the 1950’s model, this stool comes in a variety of colors, molded from recyclable polypropylene with wood legs and a circular footrest.

The Sigfred Stool has a distressed “vintage” color with a curved medium-sized backrest. They are upholstered in a variety of different fabrics, such as velvet and vegan leather. The 4-legged base design features slightly splayed legs in a black powder-coated finish.

Yvonne Potter Timber Stool

The Yvonne Potter Timber Stool is incredibly minimalist. It features a backless design with a metal sled base and a sleek plywood seat. The wood is shaped into a slight curve for added comfort.

Bertoia Stool

The Bertoia Stool is another variation on an original mid-century modern chair created by famous designer Harry Bertoia in the 1950s. This design has a retro diner feel to it. It is made from wire metal and comes with a thin seat pad. Many buyers of this stool rant and rave about its comfort for being made entirely of metal (aside from the pad, of course!)

Bastille Stool

The Bastille Stool might be the most well-known and recognized stool of them all. You probably have seen one of these variations in a friends house or in a popular restaurant / café. The original chair, named the Tolix chair, was created by another famous mid-century modern designer, Xavier Pauchard. Numerous variations of these stool can be found. Some feature high-backrests, low-backrests and backless. One thing they all have in common – they are made from galvanized steel.

Oscar Stool

The Oscar Stool is making an unlikely appearance in modern stools for 2021. With its perforated, semi-open cane backrest and its tubular metal frame, it features a unique combination of materials in what looks like both a retro and contemporary-rustic style.

Dallas Stool

The Dallas Stool is charmingly versatile. Easily fitting into many different interior design styles, it features a curved low-backrest sloping into subtle armrests. Similar to the Sigfred Stool, it comes in a choice of distressed “vintage” vegan leather. The seats come padded and the legs are made of black-powdered coated metal.
