Hip To Be Square

Day to Day

Today we are exploring our charming Shop Kit Kemp cube stools...

At our Design Studio, we have a deep appreciation for a good stool. When designing our spaces, flexibility and a variety of seating options are crucial for comfort during all types of activities. Cube stools, in particular, are perfect for adding an extra layer to any design scheme, bringing a fun pop of colour to the space. Historically, stools are one of the oldest known forms of seating, dating back to ancient cultures where they were used as royal thrones. Only leaders could afford such a luxury. Today we are exploring our charming Shop Kit Kemp cube stools.

We love the versatility of cube stools, especially in our Croc Bowling Alley & Bar at Ham Yard Hotel. These stools provide a vibrant splash of colour, making them ideal for a quick rest between activities.

In the compact Potting Shed at Dorset Square Hotel, these stools add extra seating without making the space feel cramped. Their backless design maintains open sightlines, keeping the area feeling breezy and gracious.

When gathered together in a row, they create a moody and sophisticated atmosphere, perfect for accommodating a crowd in an intimate space. Whether you’re sipping cocktails at The Soho Hotel Refuel Bar or waiting for a film screening, cube stools are the perfect seating solution.

Upholstered in our ‘Tight Rope’¬†fabric for GP & J Baker, these stools are a controlled yet joyful choice for any scheme. The pure cotton narrow woven stripe features a wide array of colours, smartly detailed with a yellow leather pipe, adding texture and visual dimension.

We hope this inspires you to incorporate cube stools into your own space. Their perfect proportions and versatility make them ideal for various settings. Place a pair at the end of the bed or in front of a fireplace for a fresh accent that doubles as seating, or tuck them under a console table for a layered look.

For a zest of orange, consider our cube stools upholstered in our ‘Little Weed’ fabric for Christopher Farr. This contemporary twist on traditional designs features geometric shapes and intricate details, making it versatile for both classic and modern interiors.
