I’m partial to a stool, especially ones like this 1940’s Toledo stool manufactured in – you guessed it – Toledo, Ohio. They’re virtually indestructible, versatile and drip with character. The patina on the bent steel of this example is superb especially after a bit of elbow grease removing the layers of dirt and rusts spots.
Though Toledo is best known for its drafting/ factory stool which currently attracts a hefty price, I reckon these smaller stools are quiet achievers, most likely due to the fact that it’s not widely known that they were manufactured by Toledo. Shhh…
Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective.
A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance. I must say that you’ve done a superb job with this.
Also, the blog loads super fast for me on Firefox. Superb Blog!
