A pair of designer Pebble Poufs, Made in Italy by Bonaldo (our price is for the matching PAIR). These are the perfect dimensions to be used as seating stools (alternatively they would also be great as side-tables). They’d be great to use around a smaller dining table with a tulip base. Pushed under the table these stools would be a great space-saver and look stunning. (We actually have the ideal dining table for these currently in stock. Let us know if you’d like us to do photos of the pairing.) The Pebble Pouf has an inner compartment (that could also be used for storage). The design is characterized by soft, curved lines. The German designer, Matthias Demacker, wanted to create a smoothed form void of corners, to mimic pebbles moulded by the water’s activity.
The thing that drew me to these is the DURABILITY. These are basically indestructible- they’re very strong and stable- I can’t see any reason why they won’t last forever. The structure is entirely polyethylene. Retailers in Europe state these can even be used outdoors as this material is resistant to atmospheric agents. I can’t see any reason why this wouldn’t be true but be careful as the plastic may discolour if the dipped top and inner section holds water for any length of time- discolouration shouldn’t happen but we haven’t tested them in full weather though.
The Italian manufacturer, Bonaldo, came into being in 1936 and since then has been expressing its personality through furniture and projects for modern domestic needs. The business has been furnished various awards and prizes in international competitions and Trade Fairs. All products from Bonaldo are the result of a completely Italian production process so their love for design is married with high-quality construction.
These stools are 8 years old and have already seen considerable use as seating stools. They are symbol to us all that well-made items will stand the test of time. With pieces like this that have already been used, you have verification of how the item will stand up to use before you shell out even a cent. Plus you also have the satisfaction of knowing this pair will retain their value like no new piece ever will. These still retail new for up to $525 AUD EACH– at our price they shouldn’t lose any value in the future. This investment is a win for you, our environment plus you’re also supporting local small business.
