    The Cassina 524 Tabouret Berger stool was first unveiled at the Synthese des arts exhibition in Tokyo in 1955. Its easily recognisable shape is a contemporary take on the classic shepherd’s milking stool.

    The Vitra Butterfly stool by Japanese designer Sori Yanagi came by its name from the shape of its seat. Made from either maple or Palisander wood, the twin-seat shells are reminiscent of a butterfly’s wings.

    The Sika Design Roger stool is constructed from aged teak and adheres to a rustic aesthetic fitting for a beach house or country retreat.

    The Riva 1920 Clessidra stool’s symmetrical build transforms it into an incidental sculpture in the bathroom. The stool dates back to 1920 Italy and is made from recycled timber.

    A stool that will stand the test of time, not just in the bathroom but in any part of the home, is the Nikari Benniale. Each one of these uniquely crafted stools celebrates the natural beauty of wood.
