The Stool


The real deal, worth restoring. Photo courtesy Flickr user sizima.
Inventory here includes two pair of stools with flat, wooden seats. One is Navy surplus and the other late Sixties high-tech, of Northern European influence with rotating seats, cast iron bases and adjustable heights. The stools are little workhorses that have survived many a purge of redundant furnishings.

The Navy stools have cross-braces about eight inches off the floor that act as footrests for someone loafing in a chair. The newer stools can be raised to serve as side tables.

All four expand space with their flexibility, small radii, and ability to slide under a table. A stool accelerates any seated task.
