Take A Seat, Decor Junkies: You Are About To Be Blown Away By These COOL Stools!
Vintage velvet with wood, traditional kantha embroidered, knitted wool, woven jute, or industrial-chic iron - the stools at Amoliconcepts are as dynamic and diverse as the brand itself! If you're looking to bring home a mix of understated and dramatic seating, you now know where to shop from now. It also helps that Amoliconcepts is experimental with design together with the material. You can pick up bar stools, footstool, or stools that fill in space while adding heaps of character to the area from here.
Nestroots is turning up the fancy with its footstools and ottomans. Browse through their catalogue and you will realise that the styles and designs are totally something Pinterest and IG are currently obsessed with! For something demure check out the mango wood and printed/embroidered cotton upholstery ottomans available in pastel shades and pleasing patterns. For edge, the metal stools with velvet cushions are what we are recommending. The brand also scores big for its affordable prices, that's pretty shocking for the sophistication we get in return.
Expect a whole lot of quirk, colour and in-your-face patterns in Sheen Decor's puffy stools. We're talking tropical forests, rose gardens, and camo prints. These stools make a fun eye-catchy statement in a sea of monotones or will only add to the cheer of a maximalist home. To us, they depict a celebratory mood all day! You also have a limited number of sober pieces in a velvet-finish or jute, if that's more your style. These stools are available at throwaway prices as low as INR 1,999, we say so because they are all engineered with German teakwood, so quality, definitely greater than price.
Sirohi by Skilled Samaritan Foundation
Sirohi's handcrafted stools, (emphasis on it being handmade) deliver some serious style and some good feels with it too. Every piece of furniture here is made by local women artisans from low-income communities and using upcycled, sustainable materials. Not that just this, these stools are also highly-functional - can be used as decor, a seat or even a side table. These stools are surprisingly comfortable and have a sturdy base too. We love the ones in the signature Aztec patterns most.
If you're looking for that one vintage-themed bar stool or a retro statement piece for the living room, we cannot recommend FurnitureRoots' stools enough! This brand is statement all the way, so don't go wanting something basic. Instead, act pleasantly surprised when you find cast iron metal and wooden stools shaped like the Eiffel Tower or like a cool Victorian art deco and Bistro-style stools. These stools are vintage through-and-through without burning a hole in your pocket.
Zawadi doesn't make regular stools but muddas (low-lying, desi -style) using colourful traditional Rajasthani patchwork, printed and embroidered fabrics. A desi home will really appreciate these comfortable, fairly large ottomans. These are also convenient that they can be used as large pillows on diwan or as the only piece of furniture on a floor bed. Fair warning, these stools are so pretty they may just accentuate your other accents!
Upcycled footstools that add just enough colour and character is what you will at Rimagined. The catalogue is limited but what you have to choose from is clean, earthy in its vibe and made from quality wood and upcycled upholstery. If you're one who doesn't use too many footstools, these options may just change your mind and have you make that purchase at least for the sake of decor.
