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, we’ve put together a collection of stool designs that not only provide a healthy seating experience while promoting a good and stable posture but most of them are created from sustainable materials as well. And a great stool design I recently set my eyes on is the Stump Stool!
Designer: Alexander Lotersztain for Derlot
Australian designer Alexander Lotersztain designed the Stump stool for the furniture brand Derlot. The circular stool is an adorable stump-looking stool that can be customized with wheels or integrated lights. “Bold, minimalist, and uncomplicated, Stump gives an appreciative nod to one of the earliest forms of seating. Ideal for moments of impromptu conversation or much-needed repose, Stump satisfies any social or seating arrangement,” said Derlot. And it’s true, the Stump stool is a simple minimal-looking stool, with no unnecessary tussles or frills, it does its job and it does it well.
The stool is available in three heights and a variety of fun and bright colors. It was designed to offer adaptable seating for spontaneous interactions. The stool is crafted from low-density polyethylene (LDPE) plastic which makes it suitable for both indoor and outdoor environments. So, it would make an excellent addition to not only your backyard but also your living room. You can take your pick, and place it wherever you like. Users can even add wheels to the bottom, making the stool portable and easy to move around from one location to another.
The stool can be upholstered in fabric or leather options. You can make a selection on the basis of your home interiors. Stump can also be equipped with integrated battery-powered LEDs that light up the stool from within.
