Finding the Right stools for You

Stools are versatile and a necessary addition to any living room, kitchen area or elsewhere in your home. A sofa or reliable lounge chair might nab all the credit, comfort-wise, but don’t discount the roles that good antique, new and vintage stools can play.

“Stools are jewels and statements in a space, and they can also be investment pieces,” says New York City designer Amy Lau, who adds that these seats provide an excellent choice for setting an interior’s general tone. 

Stools, which are among the oldest forms of wooden furnishings, may also serve as decorative pieces, even if we’re talking about a stool that is far less sculptural than the gracefully curving molded plywood shells that make up Sōri Yanagi’s provocative Butterfly stool

Fawn Galli, a New York interior designer, uses her stools in the same way you would use a throw pillow. “I normally buy several styles and move them around the home where needed,” she says.

Stools are smaller pieces of seating as compared to armchairs or dining chairs and can add depth as well as functionality to a space that you’ve set aside for entertaining. For a splash of color, consider the Stool 60, a pioneering work of bentwood by Finnish architect and furniture maker Alvar Aalto. It’s manufactured by Artek and comes in a variety of colored seats and finishes.

Barstools that date back to the 1970s are now more ubiquitous in kitchens. Vintage barstools have seen renewed interest, be they a meld of chrome and leather or transparent plastic, such as the Lucite and stainless-steel counter stool variety from Indiana-born furniture designer Charles Hollis Jones, who is renowned for his acrylic works. A cluster of barstools — perhaps a set of four brushed-aluminum counter stools by Emeco or Tubby Tube stools by Faye Toogood — can encourage merriment in the kitchen. If you’ve got the room for family and friends to congregate and enjoy cocktails where the cooking is done, consider matching your stools with a tall table.

Whether you need counter stools, drafting stools or another kind, explore an extensive range of antique, new and vintage stools on 1stDibs.

Questions About Milking Stools
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 31, 2023
    Milking stools typically have three legs. The reason for this design is that three legs tend to keep stools stabler on uneven ground in barns and pastures. Shop an assortment of milking stools on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertJune 15, 2023
    How tall milking stools are varies from piece to piece. However, most of the three-legged wooden stools are 12 inches high or less. This height made them ideal for their original purpose: allowing people to sit comfortably while milking a cow. On 1stDibs, find a selection of milking stools from some of the world's top sellers.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMay 5, 2023
    Merrill T. Hamilton invented the milking stool and received a patent for his design in 1906. He created the stool with three legs instead of four to increase stability on uneven surfaces in barns and pastures, so a farmer could more easily milk cows. On 1stDibs, shop a selection of milking stools.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 13, 2023
    A milking stool is a stool that has three legs and a semicircular seat. The original purpose of the stool was for farmers to sit on while milking cows. However, people now use them as everyday indoor accent chairs and even as decorative accents. Find a variety of milking stools on 1stDibs.
