Stratton Step Stool

Change colour

A closer look at Stratton

The Stratton collection brings the decorative and the useful together, and the Stratton Kick Stool is both beautiful and functional. We believe in designing pieces that will last a lifetime, and it is one of the sturdiest pieces of furniture we have ever created. This solid step will be supporting you for the rest of your days in its construction is virtually indestructible.

Materials

We love oak (and know you do too) – it’s a hardwood that comes with a real sense of heritage, and the odd knot and change in its grain that mean no two pieces are ever the same. And it looks great contrasted with painted timber. That’s why you’ll often find us pairing it with tulipwood. It’s a timber that’s just as strong but has a less-characterful grain that’s ideal for painting.

The finish: oak

Meet IsoGuard® – our timber treatment oil. In a nutshell, it makes oak easier to live with. Think of it as a bit of a defence barrier, but one that you can’t see, feel or would ever know was there. If you’d like to know all the science-y stuff behind it, you can find that here.

The finish: paint

You might think hand-painting is best – usually anything done by hand is best – but that’s not always the case. Take our pieces: we’ll spray paint them a few times (and, if they need it, a few times more) and then finish off with a brush. Because that’s the way to get a properly perfect finish. Just know that it’s not a bomb-proof one. But that’s the beauty of painted timber: it’s touch-up ready.

Design is in the detail

Most step stools have two steps, and Stratton is no exception. What’s a bit special about it though is that you can tuck the little one underneath out the way, and pull it out completely so they’re two separate pieces, and you can lift the big one up and the little one will come with it (it sits on wooden runners). Simple, but useful.

Just so you know

So you don’t go flying, we’ve hidden rubber feet under Stratton’s legs that keep it from sliding across the floor.

Natural timber will always want to move. Fact. It’s going to expand and shrink as the temperature and humidity in your home changes, but there are specialist joinery techniques that can help to counteract the movement. And that’s exactly what we do.

If you’d like the colour of your piece to be spot on, there’s really nothing better than ordering a sample paint pot or colour card – on your screen, the colour might be one or two shades off.

Taking care of Stratton

You want: easy-to-care-for pieces that you don’t need to tiptoe around. We’ve got: easy-to-read-through care guides that give you just that.

Right this way

We take our delivery service seriously. Neptune transport, Neptune people, Neptune service.

Our white glove service means you’ll have a two-man delivery team. That means no heavy lifting on your part is needed. They’ll take it to your desired spot, assemble it for you and take away the packaging for recycling. The assembly service doesn't include fitted furniture.

For homes and customers outside of the UK and Ireland, our international team are here to help arrange shipping and delivery. Call us on +44 (0)1793 427 427 or e-mail [email protected] and together we’ll sort out the best method for you.

No-quibble returns

Returns should be easy, that’s why we have a ‘no quibble’ mindset.

If you decide on the day that it’s not for you then our delivery team can take it away for you there and then. But if you’d rather mull things over, you have 28 days to make up your mind. We do charge a pick-up fee of £29.95 here though, because we’ll need to send our delivery team back out.

And when it comes to designs upholstered in a made-to-order fabric or painted in a bespoke colour, there’s also a 20% returns/cancellation fee. We’d love to not have to charge a penny for this, but as they’re made just for you, we can’t always guarantee that we’ll be able to sell them again.

If you’ve bought something from us outside the UK or Ireland, just get in touch with the store you bought it from – or with our international team if you bought it through them – and they’ll let you know how you can return or exchange it.

And talk to our international team on +44 (0)1793 427 427 or at [email protected]
