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 an excellent stool design that would be a wonderful addition to your living space is the Arc stool by Juntos.
The Arc Stool is a simple but wonderfully and thoughtfully designed stool that can add manifolds of elegance and personality to your living space. The stool is a typically humble item, however, the Arc Stool attempts to elevate and upgrade this rather mundane furniture piece. It is a signature piece of the inaugural collection by the US studio Juntos.
The minimalist and elegant stool has a sculptural appearance that is accentuated by its gently curved seat, and angled legs, which perfectly merge together to create a sophisticated furniture piece in a unique mottled color, that Juntos describes as having a rather “sensual approach”. The stool has angled legs, that offer a ridge for the hand under the seat, making the stool extremely easy to pick up and move. On the other hand, the dipped surface adds comfort for the sitter.
The beautiful stool is available in three different colors – the dark blue Tide, deep purple Tinto, and greenish color named Lichen that has an interesting hazy wash of color. The Arc Stool was launched at this year’s International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) at New York Design Week. This first collection by Juntos is made to order, or produced in small quantities by skilled craftsmen in Maine. It’s a beautifully crafted piece that is a suitable pick for those who love small compact furniture designs that occupy minimum space while exuding maximum personality and charisma. You can pair it up with other stunning furniture pieces, and it would harmoniously merge with them, creating a coherent and finely done living space.
