Our bestselling selection of rustic stools remain one of our most popular product ranges year after year, and for good reason, too!
Coming in a variety of shapes and sizes, these adorable additions are utterly unique and easily elevate any space, from bathroom steps and bedroom storage to crafty kitchen seating, the uses are endless.
This handy blog will provide you with some ingenious styling tips and tricks to ensure you get the most out of your stylish stool, so that it remains a timeless, eco-friendly addition to your interior for many years to come.
Sustainability is at the core of our values here at Acumen, and crafting products that stand the test of time - in both quality and design - is something we are extremely passionate about.
The poster child for this ethos is none other than our rustic stools, for three very big reasons.
Number one, all of our stools are hand crafted from repurposed wooden materials, such as old barn doors, dating back 80-100 years and lovingly restored to their former glory. Our skilled restoration team work hard to create charming pieces with plenty of character. Nothing is too polished, just how nature intended!
Number two, our products are designed to be timeless, and something you’ll keep in your home for many years to come with little need to repurchase or replace them. Their versatility allows you to reconfigure any space, and easily find a new use for them in your home. They come with a lifetime guarantee, too, so you can put full trust in the products you buy from us!
Finally, and this is possibly our proudest point, is that for every product we sell, a tree is planted in its place. Though our wood comes from pre-loved, sustainable sources, we still feel we can do more to preserve our beautiful planet. So, together with the One Tree Planted organisation, we plant one tree for each product purchased, so that we can reforest the plant, one tree at a time.
Now that we’ve gone over all of the amazing advantages of adding a rustic stool to your space, without further ado, here are 5 ingenious ways to style your stools.
