TOP 5 - bar stools...

Bar stools are a tough call! They are either too ultra modern, too plastic or just too uncomfortable. This in mind, I have decided to commit to my top 5.

  1. Flo Stool by Patricia Urquiola for Driade is is constructed from steel and covered in a lozenges patterned wicker. Available in red or brown it is a great way to add warmth and texture to a more industrial styled design.

2.  Emeco Stool by Philippe Starck for Emeco blends contemporary design with a 1950's            aesthetic. Available with an optional seat pad, we are using this stool on a current                     project and love its subtle detail.
3.  High Stool 64 by Alvar Aalto for Artek is a design icon. Designed in the early 1930's this              natural birch stool is a true classic.
4.   Tolix Metal Bar Stool by Xavier Pauchard for Tolix is a classic French design. Designed        in 1934 this stool is industrial and chic.

5.   Bertoia Bar Stool by Harry Bertoia for Knoll. The Bertoia Collection consisted of 5       pieces designed in 1950 and for me this is my ultimate bar stool.

Urquiola's I like most, but it lacks a comfortable bar to step on.

I realize that you are home decor-modern design connoisseur :) I'd like to hear your opinion/feedback on our products. Also, it'd be swell if you can place our suede wassily chair in a bag set in a bag on your blog.
