Style Climbers Reach for the Modern Step Stool


At 6 feet tall, I've never had a problem reaching items around the house. But judging from my popularity at supermarkets and with dinner party hostesses wanting a platter from the highest pantry shelf, I think I'm in the minority.

I've never minded being tall, but I do wish I had an excuse to buy one of the great looking 'round the house step ladders conceived of by those masters of attractive utility Kartell and Magis.

Both have dreamed up colorful, modern, useful ladders perfect for the style starved person with plenty of overhead storage.

The Fio Step Ladder from Magis folds away neatly but has the looks to become a standby left to stand out in a kitchen, modern library or utility room.  $516 at AllModern.


The same is true for Kartell's Upper Step Stool, a nice choice for style climbers. The metal structure sports a polycarbonate frame available in a range of bright Kartell colors. A cheery way to change a light-bulb for $380 at AllModern.

Comment on This Article Here! Style Climbers Reach for the Modern Step Stool:

Iam looking for a backless counter-height step stool that I can use as seating at my island and desperately want a contemporary look. I have a beauitful new kitchen but being only 5'2" I need a step stool that is always at hand. I have searched for hours and don't want to settle for something less. Does any one know of a great looking modern/contemporary step stool seat. I am sure there are many other people who would snatch up such a item if it were available.
