Aalto Stool: The Icon turns 80

Alvar Aalto designed this stool in 1933.  It is just as fresh today as it was 80 years ago.  To celebrate the anniversary, an anniversary edition is now available in the five colors you see above.  

At over $250, the Aalto 60 stool is pricey.  
How about this Ikea knockoff for $11.90?  Now you're talkin'!!!

And why not paint these stools for some added panache.  

This is the stool I painted for my studio.
Don't think of the stools just as extra seating.  They work as plant stands, side tables, nightstands too.
