We wanted to create a stool for everyone. A non-directional stool that would accommodate movement and conversation; whether it’s the morning breakfast rush with the kids, impromptu drinks with friends or coffee with a colleague. Whether you perch, straddle, sit cross legged or side saddle, the Baker stool will bring joy to your every day for decades to come with its hard wearing materials and meticulously refined details. Mix and match the colours and materials of the seat, legs and foot ring to create your perfect perch. With three heights and over 16,000 material and colour combinations there is sure to be a favourite combination for even the trickiest to please.

  • Mix and match the colours and materials of the seat, collar, legs, and ring to create your perfect perch. With over 16,000 material and colour combinations the hardest part will be which one to choose. Seat Options: Solid Oak or Die Cast Aluminium in White, Bone, Grey, Black, Cocoa, Red, Yellow, Blue or Green Powder Coat Leg Options: Solid Oak or Galvanised Steel in White, Bone, Grey, Black, Cocoa, Red, Yellow, Blue or Green Powder Coat Collar & Ring Options: Die Cast Aluminium in Raw or White, Bone, Grey, Black, Cocoa, Red, Yellow, Blue or Green Powder Coat The custom powder coat has been formulated for high performance and to ensure the colours work well together, on their own and in surrounding environments.

  • The round, non directional seat was designed with movement and conversation in mind. We all sit and move differently - so whether you perch, straddle, lean, sit side saddle, parallel or cross legged, the Baker stool won't constrain how you get on, sit on or get off the stool.

  • Every aspect of the Baker stool was designed with performance in mind; the result of an obsessive focus on detail. Highly resolved connection details and hard wearing materials ensure this robust stool will withstand wear and tear for decades to come. The Baker Stool has a 10 year Warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.

  • Don't find yourself with short-lived items that quickly go out of style. Baker has been designed to survive changes in tastes and trends, to remain relevant so it can be passed on to the next generation. And if the next generation aren't happy with your colour choice, they can have it powder coated in something to their liking.

    Inexpensive doesn't have to equate to poor quality. And design doesn't have to be expensive or elitist, just good and accessible. Packed full of goodness, this high performance stool provides excellent value for money, especially when enjoyed over a long life cycle.

    With weight distributed in all the right places, Baker is stable on its feet. It's light enough to pick up or move around but won't tip easily - perfect for the early morning frenzy with the kids or when the after work drinks get out of hand.

    Powder coated legs are fitted with extremely tough, injection moulded plastic feet. They have been designed for a precise fit so they won't fall out, are UV resistant and won't damage your floors. Timber legs are supplied with noise reducing felt feet. The extra strength adhesive bonds permanently and withstands repeated movement for ongoing floor protection.
