Both chairs have become a favourite among our clients, so it only made sense for us to expand our offering with stool versions of both designs. Stools have almost become a staple in pubs, clubs, and restaurants, and many homeowners are now incorporating them into their furniture setup, especially those with open-plan living spaces where casual dining at the kitchen counter is a common occurrence.
Increased comfort, versatility and practicality are at the forefront of all our designs, and the Cala and Malmo Stools are no exceptions. The bentwood components and fastening techniques used in their crafting ensure that they’re robust, sturdy and strong, three characteristics needed for high-traffic environments, be it a busy restaurant floor or bustling home space where young and old alike are likely to occupy these seats.
The Cala in particular, plays to the always-popular minimalist aesthetic, with its open backrest that encourages the eye to flow freely around the room because of its perceived transparency. The Malmo, on the other hand, offers a padded, upholstered backrest fringed with wooden edging to protect the fabric from signs of wear and tear over time. Both stools feature a low backrest which we find is gaining traction in hospitality establishments because it offers occupants a place to rest their arms while talking to the person next to them.
These two products answer the current market demand for sophisticated yet relaxed stools with timeless appeal and make an elegant addition to any home or restaurant space. If you’re interested in learning more about the Cala and Malmo stools, get in touch with our team of seating specialists who will be more than happy to guide you in your order. We also encourage you to visit our studio spaces to view our range of chairs in person. All Woodbender designs are customisable and can be stained in one of our five standard timber finishes and upholstered in a fabric of your choice.
