Antique Stools are one of the earliest forms of seating dating as far back as the the Middle ages and Egyptian times. In Britain the antique stool was commonly used in the 17th century, in rural farm houses; kitchens or public rooms with three legs of a simple trestle construction. The later Georgian stools resembled the base of chairs, consisting on a single upholstered seat and standing on four decorative carved legs. The 19th Century produced many different designs to fulfil many different uses, especially in the Victorian era. The piano stool was revolving and could be adjusted to different heights making it more comfortable for the musician. This same design was used in the bedroom for the dressing table stool, although these would usually be more decorative with carvings and have comfortable upholstery, occasionally with needlework tapestry. Antique stools are one of those useful pieces of furniture that do not take up much room in your home but come in handy when you have extra guests, making them very popular pieces of antique seating.
