New chairs and stools for the kitchen

Written by stephen gale

The new chairs and stools arrived for the kitchen today.  They were ordered about 6 weeks ago, but unfortunately it was just before the factory in Italy closed for it’s annual holidays.

The chairs and stools came from Nuovo Living out at Redbrick Mill.  They are made by Calligaris and these are the New York chairs and stools.  The seats are leather and although the colour is listed as being white, in reality the colour is more of an off-white.  We knew this before we ordered the chairs as there were swatches of the leather available at Redbrick Mill.  It was still a relief to see the same colour chairs and stools arrive today!

Although we had looked for some time for chairs and stools that matched, we dithered a bit when we found these.  It was probably more to do with the price than the actual product.  We decided to have a cup of coffee in Redbrick Mill while we mulled over our choice.  This decision was made slightly easier when we realised that the chairs we were sat on in the café  were the same chairs we were considering buying.  If they are sturdy enough for us in a retail setting, they will last well in a domestic one.  Decision made.

It took us a while to find these chairs and stools, but we got there in the end.

New stools for the island unit that match the chairs for the kitchen table.  It took quite a lot of effort to find these.
