Pine stools

Monday, March 21st, 2011

The kitchen is one of the busiest rooms in any home and, given the growing influence of a more modern style of living, a pine stool is the perfect addition to the 21st Century kitchen.

Not as formal as a more conventional seating arrangement, a pine stool emphasises the kitchen as a  place to relax – to read the newspaper, to enjoy a hot drink and to listen to the radio – as opposed to a space that is solely dedicated to cooking and food preparation.

A pine stool is also the ideal accompaniment for a breakfast bar, a more contemporary kitchen item that can be also constructed from pine. However, a principal strength of a stool is that it can stand on its own, and a pine stool can be placed near kitchen worktops or other flat surfaces and prove very useful.

Stools are also light and portable and, given the fact that pine is a light wood, moving one around from the kitchen to another room, or even outside to the garden, is very easy. Pine can also be painted and treated so, if the urge for a make-over strikes, a pine stool can be easily overhauled for a brand new look.
