When I thought I had enough of cowskin covered everything, the team at Canadian design firm Powell & Bonnell ‘udderly’ changed my mind….sorry for the pun, I couldn’t help myself. It is called the Contralto Stools and yes, it is pitch perfect.
First of all it is meticulously tailored. The ‘ponyhair’ is partnered with an elegant black metal frame. The marriage makes for a contemporary stool that would suit most decors. What’s more, the seat itself is designed to be roomier, measuring about 20X20 inches, perfect for sitting and chatting and sipping for extended periods around the breakfast bar.
