Comfortable, Really?!

15 Mar

To start off the first of (hopefully) many furniture/product articles, I wanted to spark your interest with this stool I recently saw on the website Contemporist (www.contemporist.com):

When looking at this stool, my immediate reaction was probably what most normal reactions might be…”that is actually comfortable?!” To be quite honest, I would need to test this for myself to be sure.  However, the reason I wanted to post this is due to it’s construction: an everyday product, used primarily for basket making, inventively used in a new way to create a strong and comfortable piece of furniture.  While Rattatan is used in furniture, Wiktoria Szawiel took a unique approach with a new technique and created something fun and, well, I guess comfortable.

Think outside the box!
