Observing this soft stone chair, you might be confused about its purpose. It looks like a large irregular boulder has simply been elevated on a set of three legs. Given this composition and the size of the odd object, one's initial curiosity might lead him to see an unusual seat. He would be right, of course, for the Stone Foam Stool is intended for sitting.

While the rocky top appears to be a convincing geological sample, it's actually been made from a mixture of polyurethane soft foam and clay grains, which are expanded into a rough and realistic silicone mold before the finished product is painted an ashen color. Just try and rest your weight on this soft stone chair. It may not look comfortable, but you'll find that it gives way for an unexpectedly cushioned surface.
