New Classic: Jamaica Bar Stool

Are you trying to find a contemporary bar or counter stool that will amp up your house’s style? Get to know the Jamaica bar stool. Originally designed by Pepe Cortes for a disco in 1991, the Jamaica bar stool has moved to several homes and accommodated with ease. Its shape recalls a classic tractor seat, while the chrome-plated tubular structure and polished seat give it a contemporary look. This merging of new and old is a good lesson in how to make a design stand the test of time; 20 years after its still a top choice among designers.

Not only are those stools light, but they also have a visually light silhouette. This makes them a superb choice for this light-filled and open living space.

The stools swivel 360 degrees, so you can take them for a twist or twist 180 degrees to make a graceful dismount.
