Informal and versatile, it is a piece that can change the look of our kitchen. Discover among these models the one that best suits your style.
Few pieces of furniture are more practical than a stool. They are helpful both for leaning at a bar to have a relaxed aperitif and solving breakfast and daily meals. We have selected eight different characteristics to serve you as inspiration. Which one would you take to your kitchen?
Minimalist. Made from braided metal rods, the Bertoia stool by Knoll is visually light and very sturdy. As a result, it's perfect in a contemporary space. Although its structure is unique and recognizable, you can also opt for cushions or integral upholstered covers.
Nostalgic. Shiny chrome, plaster upholstered seats, and height-adjustable feet: We continue with the dreamy air thanks to the bar stools of the 50s, icons of a critical era in the history of design. Today, the rise of all things retro again makes these seat protagonists that work well in classic and contemporary environments.
Timeless. The Series 7 chair, the classic designed by Arne Jacobsen, is available in an elevated version for a contemporary touch in the kitchen. Made with nine layers of molded wood veneer and two layers of cotton fiber between each, Series 7 stools are available in a wide variety of colors, as well as in natural wood veneers, with polished or satin chrome-plated tubular steel legs.
Vintage. The trend toward vintage décor brings the reissue of stools used in offices, schools, or factories. Those designed by brothers Joe and Clement Uhl for The Toledo Metal Furniture, Co. in the early 20th century are made of wood and metal. They are still produced today under the Toledo name.
Rustic. The bladed back and lattice seat make this stool the perfect choice for a rustic-style kitchen. The carved wood adds a note of sophistication, as does the slightly off-white tone of the wood, which softens the visual impact of this material by integrating it with other finishes.
Futuristic. Made from a single piece of transparent or mass-colored polycarbonate, the Charles Ghost stool, by Philippe Starck for Kartell, is a balancing act between classic soft forms and state-of-the-art materials and finishes - it is virtually unbreakable and suitable for outdoor use.
Industrial. The popular Tolix seat is symbolic of industrial aesthetics. Made of galvanized and painted metal, its origins go back to a chair from the 1930s, when its producers sought to create a piece as economical as it was weather-resistant.
Since then, its evolution has led it to be present in all spaces, although it is in diverse environments where it works best. You will find it available in various heights, with and without backrest, and in different colors.
Modern. Designed in the late 1990s by Stefano Giovannoni for Magis, the Bombo stool is the best example of the union between modernity and functionality. All this without renouncing a playful point. With its characteristic ABS plastic seat and chromed steel foot and footrest, Bombo not only rotates 360° but can also be adjusted in height from 50 to 74 cm thanks to a pneumatic mechanism with a gas piston.
Its seamless construction makes it highly resistant, and its range of colors allows it to be integrated into modern, avant-garde, and even retro-futuristic environments.
