Frame & filling
We build our frames using solid timber and proper joinery – they’re pieces of furniture in their own right. Out of all of our stools, Alex is the most likely to be used just as a stool, so we’ve used a firm foam around its perimeter so you’ll never feel the frame beneath, but softer padding in the centre and webbing under that for a comfortable sit or place to prop up your feet.
Form and function
It’s Alex’s unassuming design and convenient size that make it such a versatile piece. It’s equally at home in a bedroom to use as a dressing table seat, sat in front of a piano, or as a side table-meets-footstool in a living space.
Alex’s intersecting legs are made using halving joints. This is a traditional joinery technique, where sections of each piece of timber are cut away to allow them to seamlessly slot together. Oak rods join both sides for extra stability.

The textiles in our fabric library range from pure linen to rich velvet and wool, and each one has its own character. Tone and texture can vary slightly from thread to thread, and expect to see the occasional slub in our linens and pile movement in our velvets. We’ve written an article about the personality behind each of our fabrics so that you can figure out which one best suits your home.
Sometimes colour between batches can vary ever-so-slightly. To be on the safe side, we’d advise buying pieces that are being used in the same room in one go.
