small wooden stool in walnut stain

What does a small wooden stool have to do with a harpist?

Imagine saying goodbye to your family in the hallway after a successful birthday party. Everyone puts coats on, it is quite crowded and it turns out that grandma needs to tie her shoe laces so she looks around trying to find something to sit on and fix her shoes.

Another situation – you have prepared a relaxing bath: bubbles, candles, music, a book and a glass of wine. When you leave the bathtub, you don’t want to wet your book, where do you put it? Where is the speaker from which you are listening to music?

The last situation – you are practicing on one of the most delicate and blissful-sounding instruments in the world – the harp. You sway to the rhythm of the music, you give it expression with your movement. Unfortunately, the stool you are sitting on releases its own music and creaks a lot.

What do these three situations have in common? Well, a small wooden stool.

A stool is quite an inconspicuous piece of furniture, but as you will see – it is quite useful. The first two situations that I described above could happen in any house, the third only if you are a harpist;) However, there are quite a lot of situations in which you want to perform a task in silence and concentration, right?

Search for the Holy Grail

One of our clients is the inspiration for writing this piece. She was looking for the perfect stool for her daughter. First, she bought one stool, then she bought another one, only in a different color. I am always vigilant, so I made sure that it was not a mistake with this color as most people order several stools of the same color. It turned out that it was intentional. The client bought a stool for her daughter, a harpist. It was not meant to be an ordinary stool, it had to be stable and made so that it would not make noise when playing the harp. The second order was for the daughter’s teacher who also appreciated its stability and comfort while playing the harp. The girls were looking for a piece of furniture that would meet all their expectations for a long time, and finally they found our stool. It turns out that many of you appreciate our stool precisely because of its stability and quality. You are looking for a piece of furniture that is simple and elegant at the same time and will suit many different interiors. In addition, it should be light, and at the same time stable and durable. Have we managed to create the perfect stool? Take a look for yourself

Round seat with a diameter of 32 cm. It is set on four perfectly smooth legs set at a slight angle, which makes the stool extremely stable. You can twist and fidget as much as you want, nothing will happen to it, the seat will remain in the same position and it will not make any unwanted sounds;) What else is important – the stool’s lifting capacity. The material from which we have built it and its construction means that it can easily carry up to 150 kg! Impressive isn’t it? Of course, like every piece of furniture in our collection, it is available in several color finishes

We would not be ourselves if we did not add a second type of stool to our furniture collection, customization is our second name 🙂 If you prefer a slightly larger and rectangular seat instead of a round seat, and you need a second shelf under the seat, take a look at the Stool 460

The seat is slightly larger than in the standard stool (51 x 37 cm). In this version, we have added an additional shelf or crossbars mounted under the seat. The whole thing is placed on our famous “ladder” legs, thanks to which the furniture is very stable. Due to the fact that the legs are quite long, the stool 460 has small handrails that make it easy to carry. You can also use them as supports for small items that you put on the stool, if you decide to use it as something more than just a seat.

For example like nightstand:

Traveling stools

So “if you decide to use it as something more than just a seat,” because the strength of our stools (and, in fact, the rest of the furniture as well) is their versatility, you have multiple options. And here we return to the beginning of this piece and our grandmother putting on her shoes in the hallway, using our stable and durable stool. If the hallway is very small, you can safely use the stool 460 as a small shoe rack.

We also return to our relaxing evening in the bathtub: we can easily put a book or a speaker on the stool without fear that they will get wet or damaged. If you change clothes in the bathroom, you can use the stool as a shelf for clothes or towels or a bathrobe. Our seats are also great as stylish flower stands, or as mini tables next to the couch in the living room. Unexpected guests? The tables turn into additional comfortable seats, both for small and adult guests. And if you have small children, they will probably use stools, just like ours did, to learn to get up and walk, and later for various games.

As we have already established, a stable stool will also be perfect for learning to play the harp or the guitar. It is a piece of furniture that can easily “wander” around the house, and thanks to the beautifully made and timeless shape, it is a cool, minimalist decoration in itself.

New, handcrafted, little stool that is beautiful in the way of vintage things. I know it will stay with us for many years, probably in different capacities since it is a versatile item. I looked a long time for something to use for seating in our small foyer, and was pleased to find this diminutive but sturdy stool. And Kasia was wonderfully responsive to my requests for tracking and signature requirement though I’m sure I was a bit pesky (thank you!).

I love these small wooden stools! We are using them as side tables but I love that they can be used as a seat if we need it. The quality is incredible. They are beautifully made and the work is top notch. I can’t recommend enough! (Edited to add these are the Walnut stain color)

Absolutely delighted with our beautiful stool – it arrived very carefully packaged and in perfect condition. Excellent quality and craftmanship. Dariuz and Kasia also send a lovely hand-written message and some homemade sweets as well which is a lovely touch. They obviously put a lot of care and effort into their whole business. Can’t fault the product or service – would 100% recommend!
