Industrial style trends do not seem to be budging a bit this year, and that's just fine by us. We dig the sturdy vintage vibe and interesting lines of many factory staples, but we have a particular fondness for draftsman stools. Perfect as extra seating at the table or cocktail/side tables, these humble stools are high on our wish list. Lucky for us, options abound.

Wisteria's Cooper's Small Draftsman Stool is inspired by the iron draftsman stools of the early 1900s. It's small curved seat 14" in diameter is probably not suited for use as a table, but it's slender sculptural silhouette makes it a beautiful option for extra seating.
