You typical backless chair often looks lacking in creative care, and it's examples like the Dandy Stool that make common shortcomings obvious. Made by Studio BAAG, this delightful piece of furniture is a fairly simple sitting object, yet it has been dressed in such a way that makes it sweet, stylish and full of charm.

Beams of aromatic cedar wood have been combined into a solid block to produce the strong and stable structure of the chair. The user can appreciate the subtleties of the visible wood grain textures. To complete the Dandy Stool, the designer created a veneer to cloak it in an endearing manner. Made from laser-cut metal or walnut, this elegant covering emulates the classic motifs from brogue leather shoes.
