38 Creatively Designed Wooden Stools

From Wooden Screw-Like Seats to Sawdust Seats

— November 6, 2012 — Eco
The wooden stool is a staple furniture item in any home, but these high design wooden stools really take the classic seat to another level. Far from just four legs and a square board, these wooden stools aim to reinvent the wooden stool, finding new ways and new materials to create artistic furniture.

Being that wood is used so much in the world, many furniture designers have recycled old wood to create new and stylish stools. This is true of the skateboard stool and the burnt wood stool. Both of these stools have an entire history and alternate life before their life as stools. Other stools fold and mold to create fluid designs that really transform the wooden material.

Creativity can really show through with these high design wooden stools.
