French Country Paysanne Stool: A Star Cut-Out, Slat Back Stool, Bar or Kitchen Height

The French Country Paysanne "peasant or rustic" stool was found in country cottages and farmhouses throughout Europe. It's beloved for its cottage-style with a unique star cut-out back, contoured horizontal slats, and medium-height back.

This cottage bar or kitchen stool adds a french-inspired, rustic feel to a traditional, farmhouse, or cottage kitchen. The slightly sloped back and horizontal slats makes the stool comfortable to sit for leisurely meals. The wood molded seat is contoured for comfort, and can be used without a cushion.

This French country cottage stool is available with your choice of (4) seat styles. Options include; a molded "Wood" seat, hand strung "Snowshoe" (rawhide) seat, or "Woven Seagrass" (rush) or "V-weave Seagrass" (rush) seats. Each seat style gives the chair a unique appearance depending on your seat and paint/stain selections.

Paint/stain finish options include a two-tone combination of paint and stain, entirely stained, or entirely painted with the wood seat selection. For other seat types, the chair can be painted or stained in a color of your choice.
