Button Wednesday : Button Stools



It is Wednesday again, so it's BUTTON DAY on my blog. It would be great if you could do the same; make your Wednesday a button day too. Have you seen a lovely, beautiful, stunning, crazy button or button-related thingy, or did you make something with a button / buttons, or did you even make buttons yourself, blog about it on your blog on Wednesday, and give the link here via Mister Linky at the end of this post.


This Button Wednesday is about button stools. The form of a stool is probably very inspiring for button lovers. I found quite a few fantastic designs !
The stool above is the "Button Stool" by Josef Frank, a great Swedish designer who died in 1967. Svenskt Tenn, an interior design shop located in Stockholm, has brought this "new" little stool in production again.

Spanish designers macalula created the above "buttom stool". The button hole perforations in the seat make for a perfect outdoor stool, allowing water to pass through, keeping the seat dry.

The next "button stools" above are from Karina Clarke Designs in Australia. She says:'The seat is representative of a button and the frame is like the thread connecting the two together.'

And these cute little wooden "button stools" are by ippei takei from Japan.

And last, but certainly not least, these funky button stool and bench from Ogata Works Original Furniture in Japan.




!!!!!!!!!! If you have something for The Button Wednesday, give Mister Linky your name and the link to your button post !!!!!!!!!!!!!
