Daniel Duarte’s Vintage-Inspired Coterie Stool

View all 12 Photos

Designed by Daniel Duarte, the Coterie Stool gives a vintage decoration new utility. The stool’s largest component is its capitone cushion, a pintucked wheel popular in the 1950s. Duarte’s version is made of tweed in two shades of gray, and, rather than adorning a couch, his design functions as the seat of a stool. Sitting atop wire legs, the cushion is more utilitarian than before, yet the design does not lose any of its original delicacy. The thin, colorful legs look no more industrial than a macaron, and the overall design is very twee pop.
