When it comes to design, you want to push the envelope just a little. You are looking for something that will update your kitchen, but nothing too extreme. The Lauren is that stool. This stool has a nice wide padded seat and low curved back for comfort. It is completely customizable. You get to choose the combination of materials (wood, steel, upholstery) to create the look you want to achieve in your home. Go for the metal backrest and wood seat for a more industrial look, or choose a warm wood back and soft upholstered seat for a traditional twist. Made in Canada by Amisco, this stool is constructed out of powder coated steel for extreme durability.
