Chatting About Stools — A Buyer’s Guide

The stool. It’s the ideal perch for late-night prognosticating about the latest season of Real Housewives of Moose Jaw or sitting with your morning coffee while catching up on the news. It’s a stylish sentry of a seat that can flank everything from the island in your kitchen, window seat in a cafe, to the bar at, you know, the bar. 

With a sleek and minimal design, the stool can help tie together the tapestry of your space and be a highlight all its own. Stools are also the quintessential host locale for conversations of all depth levels, between friends, enemies, lovers, strangers — the whole gamut. 

Speaking of, is there a stool that pairs perfectly with a particular conversation? Perhaps a chat that can help you find the right seats for your space?

Let’s listen in.

Cheers (to Classic Design)

Sitting on the Circo, you can almost feel the spectre of Sam Malone looking across the bar at you. Giving you a bit of good-natured lip as he pulls the towel from his shoulder to give the mug a wipe before executing the perfect pour.

The Circo is the classic stool refined. Comfy leather seat, sturdy walnut legs — all that’s missing is an off-hand comment about the Boston Red Sox.

A Stool That’ll Turn Heads

Whether it’s in your kitchen or your favorite cocktail spot, sometimes you just need a dash of elegance to make the space complete. 

*In comes the Sede*

With its full-backed leather seat and veneered walnut or oak legs, this is a stool fit for socialites and regular ol’ social gatherings. It’s swivel-seat option even gives you the opportunity to spin around and deliver a scintillating retort to said socialites, if necessary.

Simple and Versatile

When you don’t have to worry about excess, you’ve got time to focus on the things that matter. Like your morning oatmeal, the kid’s homework, debating whether or not Cheers was actually a good show.

That’s the freedom a modern, minimal stool like the Anco can provide. Plus, it comes in a variety of colors to match whatever space you have in mind.

“Frasier was better.” The antagonist on the stool beside you provokes.

Good day, bad day, the Esse is there for you.

Modern Classic

Made of solid oak, the Esse is a beautifully crafted, modern classic. One that’s designed to look good in all spaces, from home to restaurant. It’s sturdy enough for you to come inside, plop down, and really vent about your day, and its smooth seat (that comes in optional leather) is more than comfy enough to indulge you as you gush about good news to your friends at happy hour. (We hope for the latter.)

And there you have it: a stool for every mood (or conversation, rather). Happy sitting.
