Stools

How to choose this product

A stool is a seat or foot rest which has no armrests or backrest. It can be low or high, upholstered or hard, and may be mounted on a pedestal or on legs. Some pivot or roll on wheels, while others fold or stack. A padded footstool is sometimes called a pouf or an ottoman. ArchiExpo characterizes this furniture by properties such as style, use or material.

Applications

A low stool can serve as convenient extra seating indoors or outdoors. Some are used to facilitate bathing, for storage or as a low table. High stools are designed for use with high tables and bar tables. Many such models have a footrest or pivot.

Technologies

This furniture can be made of a single material, though many use a combination. Frames, legs and bases are often of tubular stainless steel, aluminum or wood. Wood and thermoformed plastic are commonly used for the seat.

How to choose

When choosing, consider seating comfort. Stackable or modular versions are easier to store and present advantages if the stool must be moved often. Proper height and sufficient leg room are important for those used with tables. A stool can blend into its surroundings, or can be a playful design piece which stands out and adds originality to a space.
