The Product Our Community Can't Get Enough Of

A Utility step stool in an open kitchen.

There's a reason why the Schoolhouse Utility Stool is so beloved. A versatile workhorse for any room, this community favorite celebrates the functional design of craft artistry and has an impressive range of uses. Each one is fabricated in a small shop on the west coast and powder coated inside our Portland, Oregon factory. Available in four heights, multiple finishes and with backed or no-back options, this bestseller is perfect for kitchen seating, as bathroom storage, or to lend a little extra height to our littlest family members. 

A classic part of our core collection, this fall, we welcomed 12 new finishes to the Utility Stool family. Scroll below to read the raving community reviews and hear how others style this handy helper in their spaces. 


Utility Stool in different colors.


The Utility Stool's bright hues are inspired by colors seen in factories—Industrial Yellow, Juniper, Dune, and Persimmon are part of a palette that you might see on equipment in a workshop.
