like mike, i really like the benjamin stool. it’s a good looking stool that can be used as a side table, footstool or occasional table.
mike writes, “i like the aesthetic of the benjamin stool, but it lacks the padding necessary to be comfortable as a foot stool for any length of time, so i made a cushion. essentially, it’s a pillow in a custom made pillow case with heavy duty snaps on the short ends. the cushion wraps around the top of the benjamin and snaps together on bottom side. it’s not the most perfect upholstery job, but it’s comfortable, and it can be easily washed.”
