Three Things; Finds – Vintage Stools

Vintage stools for the new studio

Tuesdays are ‘Finds’ on the Three Things blog and today we bring you some vintage seating we have sourced for our new art studio.

Industrial machinists stool

This is a vintage industrial machinists stool, we have a couple of these with seats and no backs but the main one pictured here has a very comfy backrest. They were reclaimed from a university physics department during a refurbishment. They would have been destined for a skip if they hadn’t found their way into our new art studio.

Vintage dental technician's stool

This is a dental technician’s stool that we found online and bought from a lovely gentleman in Lytham St Anne’s who worked from home as a dental technician and had bought himself a new chair. When Sue and Laura arrived to collect the chair the gentleman was sitting in it, he had forgotten how comfortable it was and was very sorry to see it go. We are very happy to have it in the new art studio and love to zoom across the studio floor on the castors. The reclaimed parquet floor in the studio makes this a bumpy ride rather than a smooth glide!

Vintage step stool

This step stool is a wonderful vintage find. Sue found it at a house clearance and paid a pound as it was covered in drips of paint. We think the paint drips add to its charm and it is used regularly in our art studio to reach the fresh coffee and specialty teas from the top shelf (unless you are Kris and can just reach them with your arms).
