The interest of the stools lately is quite strong. As shown by the old name of the stool, namely the “ottoman”, the emergence of this additional piece of furniture is inspired by the habits of people in the Ottoman Empire. The population there has been a habit to sit with legs crossed, low to the floor on a pile of rugs.
Futuristic stool design
This low furniture with small round feet quickly has become a part of the interior of the Victorian parlors. In the seventeenth century, initially the stool was installed as an extra seat to the construction of the chair. Usually stool was designed as a seat of women and young children. Two centuries later, is expected of every young person with good manners to sit only on a stool, especially in the presence of an older man.
