Iconic Schoolhouse: Utility Stools
A versatile workhorse for any room, our line of industrial-strength welded steel Utility Stools have an impressive range of uses. Each one is fabricated in a family-owned shop on the west coast and painted inside our Portland, Oregon factory. Available in three heights, multiple finishes and with backed or no-back options, they provide so much more than simple seating. We love them flanked as modern bedside or end tables, used as extra bathroom storage, or to give planters extra height. A classic part of our core collection for years now, this year we revised the design, added new finishes and (literally) put our Schoolhouse stamp on them.
“The Utility Stool embodies so many of the values that Schoolhouse stands for. They’re versatile, timeless, and expertly manufactured in the USA” says Kate Richard, Schoolhouse Product Management Lead. “When we found out the original factory was going out of business we were determined to find a way to make it ourselves.” And so we did: The new Schoolhouse Utility Stool has a more ergonomic stamped seat that prioritizes comfort, along with a rounded back-rest to remove sharp edges and low-pro rubber feet to protect floors and reduce skidding. We also introduced two finishes to the line: a glossy, rich navy and industrial raw coated steel. As the finishing touch, each stool is embossed with our signature Schoolhouse logo.
