I’m at a point in my life where I’m team stools over chairs, and I truly believe stools deserve to be given way more credit than they get. Stools are often overlooked, maybe because they occupy minimum space, and aren’t really overbearing. But these traits are what make stools so great in my opinion! I mean, they’re compact, and a great space-saving furniture option for our modern homes. They are also super portable. And, a stool design I recently came across, and would love to get my hands on is the Drum stool by Teixeira Design Studio.

I’ve seen a lot of stool designs, and let’s be honest some of them do tend to get predictable. But the Drum stool is anything but predictable. The Drum stool is minimal, elegant, stackable, and not to mention sustainable! At first glance, the Drum stool looks like a cute little wine cork to me. But when you dig deeper, you realize it has much more to offer than its adorable good looks. Teixeira picked materials such as cork and wood to build the stool, instantly rating it high on sustainability. Cork was used to create the seat, while wood was the material of choice for the legs.
The cork seat features round trimmed surfaces, giving it a rather fun and playful shape. The trimmed seat is further supported by slim wooden legs that effortlessly blend with the seat, creating a furniture piece with a cohesive and harmonious personality. I love how the sleek legs deftly slide into the grooves on the cork seat! The cork seat is comfortable and inviting and provides a grip while handling, so the stool is quite easy to move around and place in different positions. As mentioned earlier, the Drum stool is stackable, which means you can stack up multiple drum stools one on top of the other, making them super easy to store away when not in use.
The Drum stool’s aesthetics are quite warm and minimal, allowing it to perfectly merge with the interiors of different living spaces. It’s the kind of versatile furniture piece that you can slyly slide into your living room, bedroom, or even your home office – it just fits right everywhere!
