This leather stool from P o t t e r y
B a r n reuses a signature style of
Ancient Egypt . The X – Shaped

base is present in the modern

rendition . Additionally , leather , a

prominent material used in

ancient Egyptian culture is

featured . The smoky tones of

both the leather and the wood is

yet another way the ancient stool

has been revamped to suit a

modern interior .

It is fascinating to see that an

ancient style and the most

elemental type of seating is stil l

being used today . The X – shaped

base allows for furniture to be

collapsed and therefore portable ,

but also adds a l ight airiness to

the aesthetic of furniture .

The Klismos Chair had sabre legs ,

which meant that the legs curved out

opposite each other . This iconic chair

featured a curved back that hugged

the human body and the seats were

made of cloth or leather .

The modern T r i s t a n A c r y l i c Klismos
Chair certainly echoes the original

chair ‘ s shape and curvature of the

backing and legs . The difference l ies

in the futuristic clear material of

acrylic and the cushioned velvet seat .

Judging by the curves of the back

seat , one can deduce that the ancient

Greeks were conscious of ergonomics

and prioritized comfort , especially

when seating those in higher social

classes . The matching degree of

curving in the backing and legs is also

an admirable harmonic design choice .
