The stool project that I mentioned last week has come to a happy conclusion. It’s very tricky to photograph, so I hope you’re getting a good idea of the colour. The original guiding light for the stool was the triangular shape of the top and bottom, but the crowning glory is the ultraviolet shade of blue.
I mentioned in my last post that I wanted the stool to be a flat-packable design, and it is! It’s also very light. It’s so light, I could pick it up with one hand and chuck it across the room, but of course I wouldn’t because I love it too much. The triangular top is an unusual shape for a stool, and when I settled on that idea, it only made since that Moroc should be a tripod joined together with stabilising bars in a triangular shape. I didn’t want the stool to come across sharp, so I asked my lovely furniture builder to round off edges where possible. Without his knowledge, there’s no way this could have come together so well, and he did a very good job of interpreting my unclear design requests. (I ended a few emails with “I’m not sure I just made any sense.”)
My husband and I are super chuffed with the result, and I’m feeling brave enough to try more projects like it. I have an idea kicking around for a door wedge that I’d like to sell in the shop, so we’ll see!
