Instrument-Accommodating Stools

This Guitar Stand Stool Keeps Instruments Ready for Playing

— December 18, 2015 — Art & Design
For those who play the guitar, it's well-known that the stringed instruments and stools go together like peas and carrots, so the Guitar Stand Stool is designed to help marry the two items. Designed with a counterbalance aesthetic that will securely hold a guitar in place, the Guitar Stand Stool is a sculpted wooden piece of furniture that allows musicians to keep their gear on-hand for impromptu playing or simply to streamline living spaces.

Available from Etsy retailer Todd Fillingham, the Guitar Stand Stool is handmade to order in the United States and takes the about three to four weeks to deliver once ordered. A chic, cozy addition to any space, the wooden stool identifies a preference for dual-purpose design in consumer furniture.
Trend Themes
1. Dual-purpose Furniture - The popularity of the Guitar Stand Stool suggests demand for furniture that can serve multiple functions and purposes.
2. Counterbalance Aesthetics - Opportunities arise for more creative designs that incorporate functionality and style, such as the Guitar Stand Stool's ability to securely hold a guitar in place.
3. Handmade Products - Customers are showing interest in unique, handmade products like the Guitar Stand Stool from Etsy retailer Todd Fillingham, indicating a market for customized craftsmanship.
Industry Implications
1. Furniture - Innovative furniture makers can disrupt the industry by producing dual-purpose pieces that streamline living spaces while providing utilitarian value.
2. Musical Instruments - Opportunities lie in designing instruments and accessories that can integrate with furniture, such as the Guitar Stand Stool, to cater to the convenience needs of musicians and enthusiasts.
3. Handmade Goods - Focusing on customized craftsmanship and unique designs can give handmade goods sellers, like Todd Fillingham's Etsy shop, the competitive edge in the market.
