Retro Stools (Each)

R1,250.00

Believe it or not, but this is actually a pair of high-end dental stools! I didn’t realise it at the time, I could just see that they were fantastic quality stools (they really are!), and knew that I had to have them. It tuns out that they were manufactured in Germany by Jörg & Sohn, a company that’s still going today. New these stools sell for around R8000 each, and I don’t think that the contemporary versions are quite as nice – although they’re very similar in design, and still super well made (they should be at that price shouldn’t they?). And don’t be put off by the fact that they were designed for dentists to use – all that means is that they made to endure some serious abuse, are fairly adjustable, and sturdy as all hell! The hydraulics work really well, so they can move up and down with ease. I think the height is perfect for a desk (see the last photo), and they could even maybe used as bar stools provided that your bar or counter isn’t too high (see details below for lowest and highest dimensions).

This is an unusual pair of stools that you’re not likely to see again anytime soon. They’re also ridiculously good quality, so while they do have a pretty heavy price tag, they’re going to last you well into the foreseeable future, so are more likely to be considered ‘investment pieces’ than most of the furniture you can buy today.

NB: For sale in Joburg only
