Meru Counter Stool - Mindi

Free U.S. Shipping & Easy 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. Unrivaled in their woodworking expertise, this group artfully constructs these stools with carefully placed joints, only using screws to secure the seat to the base.

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

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.

The Citizenry

Susan, Thank you for your note! We can sing the same praises for your thoughtfulness and your kind words — they truly mean the world to us. We’re thrilled to hear that you’re happy with your stools. If good things come to those who wait, then great things must come to those who wait seven months! Thanks so much for your support. Here’s to creating beautiful spaces and memories for years to come. Warmly, The Citizenry Team

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!

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!

Beautiful, but slightly uneven legs

While I absolutely love these counter stools and feel they are beautifully crafted, the legs are slightly uneven on both of the two stools I ordered. They are a little wobbly. That is their only flaw! The are light weight and lovely, and add understated elegance to my kitchen.
