Meru Counter Stool - Mindi

Easy 30 Day Returns

Richly-grained mindi wood. Clean, architectural frame. Add a relaxed, yet refined feel to your bar or kitchen with these modern counter stools.

Handcrafted by master artisans in Jepara, Indonesia, each stool takes about 18 days to complete, all made in a fair trade environment with ethically-harvested mindi wood.

As a heads up, these are counter stools, not taller bar-height stools, designed to fit most residential counter heights.

So beautiful and comfortable. These look amazing in my kitchen, and I am really pleased with the quality and scale of the stool.

Great looking stools!

Love the proportions on this chair. Was looking for a stool with a back for counter height bar seating that could still be tucked away under the counter. The shape and curvature worked really for our style. One thing I'd say is that the actual color was a bit "richer" than we anticipated. From the pictures it looked a little more whitewashed almost...but in fact they had more brown and subtle orange tones. This wood is a cedar like wood I believe and that shows.overall though really happy with the chairs

Beautiful stools

I waited for these stools for over 7 months and was not disappointed. They are gorgeous. Also very sturdy, which is helpful in a home with a toddler. Would buy them again in a heartbeat. They also came so well packaged- you can tell there was a lot of thought and care put into these pieces, from start to finish.

Perfect kitchen counter stools!

These are so versatile and look so great in my kitchen. They fit perfectly at the counter for my child and for us adults. They're sturdy and not too big or small. Highly recommend!

A work of art!

Gorgeous chairs. A piece of art! Can’t wait to show them off once I can have people over again!

Gorgeous, handmade stools that are as comfy as they are beautiful!

First off, we were impressed by the detail, the color and richness of the wood and how each stool was unique (we ordered 2 sets of two) and had different variations of the wood with it's own quirks. They are the perfect size and height for our countertop, we really love having a back on them (that was one of our musts) and they are very comfortable, like...really. These Meru stools make a statement and in our home, they match our #woodonwoodonwood theme throughout our kitchen and we can't wait to host our friends & family!
