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."
