Seven stools we’ve recently found

While not intended for the most relaxed version of sitting, stools serve a mighty purpose in the workplace. They offer seating for quick and informal meeting points, pantry and kitchen areas, casual work lounge settings, and so much more. They provide flexibility when you need an extra seat and enhance the overall look and feel of an office space.

As we near the milestone of identifying 400 different stools, barstools, counter stools, and low stools in project photos on Office Snapshots, we wanted to share some of our favorite picks. While these aren’t necessarily new, here are seven we’ve only recently identified for the first time.
