At first glance the Picciotto stool may seem like a modern yet typical piece of furniture. When you look closer, however, you will start to notice the unique details that make this stool far from traditional. Inspired by fashion, the seat portion of the Picciotto stool is modeled after a newsboy cap.

Designed by Fabio Vinella, this feature makes the Picciotto stool both classic and contemporary in a creative way. Although sleek and simple, which makes it the perfect minimal contender for today's interior decorator, the hatlike seat gives it a quirky touch that makes each stool brim with personality.

I especially like how the Picciotto stool comes in various patterns and colors, just like the newsboy caps do themselves. Cute and clever.
