Stray Dog Styled: Stump Stool

The Stump Stool: it's a Stray Dog classic. This one stands out with it's playful Faux Bois pattern in relief. Handmade, stylish, sturdy and multifunctional, we think everyone could use one or two of these around the house. 

But hold on a second... what is faux bois?! It means 'false wood' in French and is basically the artistic imitation of wood or wood grain. Hence the name, "stump stool." 

In our Mexican workshop, this style is sometimes called "el trabajo rustico" aka "the rustic work." In the Mexican tradition, sometimes it has more realistic colors and details.

Instead of being realistic, our Stump Stool is straight out of a storybook. Wherever it goes, it fits right in; like a sort of whimsical camouflage. We've loved it in nurseries, we've adored it in bedrooms, and most of all, we've enjoyed seeing it come to life through the eyes of our favorite customers and designers. 

When you get the Stump Stool, you're getting a true classic. It has stood the test of time... or should we say 'stumped' the test of time. Scroll down to see it in some of our favorite rooms in all it's glory...

There's nothing we love more than a double trouble Stray Dog moment. This cool corner gives us just that; the Willie Weed Sconce and the Stump Stool are a daring duo and all we can say is, "YAS!"

This kitchen/dining duo is giving us major jealousy. A minimalistic design with colorful statement pieces (like the trusty Stump Stool) is a killer combo. Who's in for a dinner party here to celebrate Spring?

This is what we imagine Carrie Bradshaw's room looked like as a kid. Totally chic, a little uptown, and a lot of pink. The Stump Stool has made the perfect home here...

We'll admit the Stump Stool stands out best in a really cool kid's room and this one is no exception. We can't decide if we want to look at the trees inside or the ones outside.

This stool isn't going to let that awesome car wallpaper steal the show! It's ok to stack statement pieces on top of statement pieces and this space is a testament to that.
