Meru Counter Stool - Teak

Easy 30 Day Returns

Featuring sculptural lines with sleek curves, these counter stools double as modern works of art. Handcrafted from rich, durable teak wood, they instantly add a layer of warmth and texture to your bar or kitchen.

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 teak. 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. They are designed to fit most residential counter heights.

NOTE: Due to the size of this item, returns for a refund require a $65 total fee. Returns for store credit are always free.

Meru COunter Stool

I bought two--- I love them. They are beautifully made and finished, and exactly what I needed and wanted. Comfortable, handsome, and at the same time fit neatly under the counter until needed, so they do not take up a huge amount of space. Highly recommended.

Difficult customer service

Ordered 4, 1 was shipped broken. Although I was credited for the broken stool, I was told it was sold out and that Citizenry could not send a replacement. Both my designer and I made several phone calls trying to find out when another stool would be available. A week later, I found on my own that the stool was back in stock. I contacted customer service to see if I could get a replacement, and was told it was “an online glitch” and that the stool was still sold out. I decided to chance it, and ordered the stool and it showed up. Very odd, and I will definitely think twice about ordering again.


The Citizenry

Hi Mari, First, thank you for taking the time to write this honest note. We wouldn’t know when we’ve missed the mark without feedback like yours. We completely understand your frustration — both from a product perspective and the subsequent communication. This is not the level of service we strive to provide in any way, and we’re truly sorry that this has been your experience. We’re so sorry that this piece arrived in less-than-acceptable condition. That’s not the experience we strive to create, and we've worked with our team and artisans to correct this going forward. Because you’re absolutely right — when one of our pieces arrives it should be nothing short of perfection. We spoke with our Client Experience Team and are happy to hear that we were able to remedy this for you. We also sincerely apologize for any confusion surrounding the ordering of these beauties during this ordeal. If there is anything else we can do at all, please do not hesitate to reach out. We certainly hope we can make it up to you in the future. Sincerely, The Citizenry Team

The muse for the style of my entire home

I saw these barstools in a magazine and fell in love. They were literally the first piece I bought for our new home and were the muse for the style of our entire home. We absolutely love these barstools!!
