Knitting is coming back into style after a long lull thanks in part to designs like Claire-Anne O’Brien's Knit Stools. O'Brien is an Irish designer who recently completed her art degree at the Royal College of Art. O'Brien's work mixes textiles and furniture to create soft and warm works like the Knit Stools seen here.

The stool has to be one of the most underused pieces of furniture currently in existence. The stool is consistently passed over due to its ugly and uncomfortable design. O'Brien has changed all of that and more with her Knit Stools. In addition to looking extremely comfy, these Knit Stools are eye-catching pieces of furniture that are bound to start a conversation or two. Reignite your passion for a lost art form and a forgotten piece of furniture simultaneously by checking out Claire-Anne O’Brien's Knit Stools.
