Think about the archetypal stool. You've imagined quite a basic piece of furniture, have you not? Well, the Eyore Stool certainly does not satisfy such a bland description, for it surprises in its shape, in its assembly and in the funny little details that it possesses.

The factor that influenced its idiosyncratic structure is the very procedure of building furnishings. The wooden frame mimics the trestles that support cushions as the manufacturer puts together the upholstery. In this case, the pillowy seat is an elongated rectangle that makes the Eyore Stool into a whimsically peculiar perch. Designer Vered Venezia worked in an asymmetrical overhang with the little beam on one side. To complete it with a pinch of added personality, the vaguely donkey-shaped chair has a loopy tail stitched into the opposite end.
