We have a butcher block island in our kitchen and have really come to like sitting around it in the evening. I'd bought one stool at first, and just recently bought a second one, which allows us all to sit down (finally! says Sara). In doing so, I fell in love again with our stools and then spotted them this past weekend on the cover of a 2006 Martha Stewart Living - in her own kitchen! Surprisingly, although Martha lists many of her resources, she doesn't say where her stools are from. Let me help you!...
Anyway, as soon as I decided to blog this, I wanted to add a few others that are worthy of attention and.... voila! another roundup. Enjoy.
>> The Lyon Industrial Stool @ $60
>> The unpainted stool when it arrived
>> After painting it last January with Marston non toxic paint
>> Bassam Fellows Tractor Stools - Solid wood and based on the shape of Swiss tractor seats
>> Thos Moser High Stool - Also designed on the shape of a tractor seat... An American tractor?
>> The Marais Stool - This comes in grey and yellow from DWR: "The epitome of French café life, it's rumored that Xavier Pauchard's Marais Collection (1934) was created for use in the weather forecasting room on a battleship."
>> Emeco Bar Stools - Made out of 80% recycled aluminum and designed for the MoMA
>> Hi Pad Stool by Jasper Morrison - pricey, but elegant with a leather or fabric seat in bright colors.
