Trending: Mismatched Stools

Lately, I’ve been noticing a trend: mismatched stools.  Grouped together in pairs or clusters, a variety of different stools can be quite striking.  As an added bonus, they are incredibly versatile.  Stools can be used as drinks tables or even extra seating.  In other words, they’re perfect for entertaining.  Here are 5 rooms with mismatched stools that shine.

Furry Stool Makeover

$25 Craigslist Score | Shopping with Gwen | Motley Decor

I take great pride in finding a good deal and Craig’s list has always been good to me in that respect.  Case in point–my latest acquisition–a $25, three-legged, triangular stool with gold, cabriole legs that hit the ground and then spiral like pumpkin stems.

Although, I can’t say this find was exactly what I was looking for, a few things drew me towards it.  First, it was only $25.  Secondly, the dimensions worked in my favor.  I was in search of something small enough to fit behind my front door that I could sit on to put on my shoes before leaving the house.  And finally, I had never seen anything like it before.  This a particular weakness of mine.  I spend hours each week scouring the internet for various pieces of furniture and vintage items.  So, it’s not often that I come across the unfamiliar.  However, when I do, my hunter-gatherer instincts surface and I feel compelled to add it to my collection.  So, one sunny Sunday morning, Gwen (pictured above) and I set out to collect our new stool with cash in hand.

Furry Stool Makeover on MotleyDecor.com

For aesthetics and hygiene reasons, I always like to reupholster anything I buy second-hand.  Luckily, I still had some long, black, faux fur leftover from my Kelly Wearstler-inspired chair makeover that I thought would suit my new stool well.  Recovering a pop off seat is pretty simple and I’ve discussed it a couple of times already on this blog–both in the previously linked post and on my Fortuny-inspired footstool post.  So, I won’t bore you with it here once again.

In any case, I was pleased with the results.  The stool now feels a bit edgier and, although the faux fur may be a little trendy, I didn’t spend any additional funds on the fabric.  So, I can recover it in the future with no remorse if (or when) this whole faux fur/sheepskin trend gets played out.  Please check out my next post to see how the stool looks in my entryway.
