Playful Piggybacking Chairs

The Paul Menand Modest Stool is Covertly Designed

— June 21, 2012 — Art & Design
The Paul Menand Modest Stool is designed to stack covertly on top of one another, allowing home owners endless options for seating arrangements. The bright colors and clean-cut design is whimsical, yet aesthetically pleasing.

The stools appear ordinary at first, but you will begin to notice unusual modifications on these piggybacking chairs. Slotted grooves allow the legs to stack seamlessly underneath the seat. The metal legs have also been modified with concave cut-outs, which sandwich the three pegs together. While some stacked designs look -- well, stacked -- the Paul Menand Modest Stool looks great as part of a set and on its own. This chair within a chair that is a chair -- serious Inception going on here -- will have your minds blown with its abundant possibilities.

The haystack-like design is ideal for home owners with tight quarters where clever storage solutions are a must. Whether you are planning to have a quiet solo night or a bustling patio social, the Paul Menand Modest Stool is designed to handle multiple occasions.
