It is not often that designers strike the perfect balance between daring whimsicality and minimalist chic, however, the Smile Stool by Jaime Haydon is a perfect example of what happens when this equilibrium is struck. The piece is effortlessly functional while injecting a certain bright playfulness into the space it occupies. Moreover, it would fit perfectly in any home interior.
Jaime Haydon designed the Smile Stool for UK brand Benchmark for its solid furniture collection. The piece is made out of high-quality American cherry wood. Moreover, the good-naturedness inherent in this design is also communicated in its form. For instance, Haydon strategically chose to work with “rounded forms and a curved underside” and this, in turn, added to a sensibility that makes the Smile Stools “inviting to touch.”
