Exclusively available at The Conran Shop, the award-winning winning Cross Leg Counter Stool was designed in 2015 by Magnus Long, a British industrial designer based in London working within furniture, product and lighting design.
Awarded for Excellence in Design by Design Guild Mark 2015 – recognising excellence and innovation in British furniture design – the idea for this stool came about from wrapping Post-it notes into cones to create a supple but stable shell for the seat.
The form of the cone developed into a bean-like shape to express a warm and inviting place to sit with the addition of multi-density foam building the fluid form and supreme ergonomics of the stool. A high strength tubular steel black frame supports the shell, while the back legs cross over, giving the stool both its name and a unique detail.
Crafted in Italy, the shell of the Cross Leg Counter Stool can be exquisitely upholstered in the diverse range of fabrics that make up The Conran Shop’s exclusive upholstery edit: a range of leathers, linen, a rich wool blend cotton, linen textured weave and cotton textured weave, in an exclusive palette of specially selected colours.
A little shorter than your typical bar stool, the Cross Leg Counter Stool is finished with distinctive, oversized criss-cross stitching on the visible seams of the seat to showcase its striking outline.
