Provincial Crossback Chairs Feature on the Block

As the season of Channel 9’s hit TV show The Block is wrapping up, they have shifted to the outdoor space. We were super excited to see not one, but two of the teams feature our Provincial Crossback Chairs in their outdoor dining area!

Brad and Dale used our Black Provincial Chairs alongside a timber table with matching black legs. 




While twins Alisa and Lysandra went for clean white lines of the white Provincial Crossback Chairs, matched up with an oak timber table top and matching coffee table.




Holy Toledo Industrial Stool!

We welcome some additions from the Toledo Metal Furniture Company to our Industrial Range and our store.

Toledo Adjustable Height Industrial Stool

Toledo Adjustable Height Industrial Stool

What was eventually incorporated as the Toledo Metal Furniture Comapny, started out as the humble Uhl’s Cycle Emporium in Toledo Ohio in 1898. The Uhl brothers founded the company on $85, producing bicycle parts for their local area.

As the popularity of bicycles decreased with the introduction of the Automobile, the Uhl’s shifted their company focus to manufacturing ice cream parlour furniture. By 1920, capital stock reached upwards of $300,000 and there were over 150 employees in the company. With this growth, their range also had increased to include office and classroom furniture.

We are happy to have the Toledo Industrial Stool also known as the Draftsmen stool in our store. We have it in 2 colourways seen below.

These 2 additions to our store expand on our Industrial bar stool range that have been extremely popular in the last few months. They have a swivel seat and are height adjustable from 65cm – 77 cm high, and the backrest is also height adjustable. Visit our store to see more: 

Rustic Dining Table pairs with Bentwood Chairs

One of our customers sent in some images of their beautiful custom dining table paired with our Replica Thonet Bentwood Chair in Black. The dining table uses recycled timbers salvaged from old farmhouses in the customers country of origin, Latvia. It was custom designed by her (what talent!) before it was sent over to Adelaide, Australia to get stained and treated before finally making it to her home in Melbourne, Victoria. We are seriously loving the look of the table, combined with the clean aesthetics of the Bentwood chair on a white canvas that is her home. Take a look for yourself

Stools & Chairs help fitout Zen Garage

Last Friday, I made a small delivery to our friends at Zen Garage. They rang me up and asked if we had any stools suitable for their space. I immediately thought of our Black Tolix Stools which would complement their black and white theme going throughout their garage. Needless to say they were stoked with the result, and why wouldn’t they?!
Check out the shots below!

Black on Black is the new Black

Has anyone noticed that the colour Black is making a strong return? While strong contrast colours and standout feature pieces are still very popular, we here at Stools & Chairs are seeing a strong comeback with the colour black. We’re not sure if it’s the upcoming Winter, or a resurgence of minimalist luxury themes in interior design. But we sure love the look of Black on Black as seen in our Replica Hans Wegner Matte Black Wishbone Chair. Only $169, that’s the cheapest we’ve seen in Australia!
