Hi everyone! I hope your week is off to a good start. I packed up my parents last week and am back to my regular work schedule and routine. It feels good to get back into the swing of things- especially after some great family time! To kick off the blog week, I’m sharing a new Best of Etsy post, that features my latest obsession: vintage wood stools. I’m officially crossing one thing off of my “must find” list. Remember when I shared 5 things I’m currently on the hunt for a few weeks ago? Well- my little French stool arrived and it’s pretty perfect. Click through to check it out, and to see a giant roundup of similar options I saved during my search!
I initially purchased this little stool for my home office. Once that space is finished, I think it will live in there, but for now- it’s also proving handy to reach books at the top of our living room built-in. It’s heavy duty, has a great aged patina, and is really sturdy. At first, I wasn’t sure how practical it would be as a step stool, but it works great!
Let’s dive right in with the roundup! I saved a LOT of vintage wood stools… mostly of the European (French) variety with bobbin legs- because that’s what I wanted for my home office, but there are some other styles mixed in as well.

While I absolutely love my stool… if #11 would have been listed or available while I was on the hunt, I totally would’ve snatched that one up! I really wanted the demilune shape, so it could easily tuck out of the way, and it has a similar notched leg style that feels a bit more modern. Which ones are your favorites?
I think the age and patina is the most charming part of vintage, so the imperfections in the stool feels special to me! I’d love to know where in France it came from and the story behind it. These beauties can be used as step stools, small side tables, to elevate plants, or even mini pedestals to display stacks of books or three dimensional art. My plan is to use it as a side table and step stool for my office built-ins, since they’ll be extra tall.
Do you also find these pretty warm, wooden stools charming? I think they can easily blend with any aesthetic and are versatile little pieces! Home decor and furniture like this always adds so much timeless character. I’m glad to have checked something off my list. What should I search for on Etsy next month? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
