Picciotto Stool – stylish seating gets blokey

I’m a parent of two sons and have to say the image above made me smile. Three generations of males from the same family bonding over a Picciotto stool.

And what a stool it is; looking at it with my non-Italian eyes I see a nod to Fred Perry aesthetics, although the name Picciotto apparently references a young Sicilian boy who wears the coppola, a hat from southern Italy. How sweet that it’s made in two sizes, perfect for father (or grandfather) and son!

The Picciotto Stool is designed by Fabio Vinella, who designs all kinds of amazing furniture as well as possessing an impressive interior design portfolio. The stools are cheeky design pieces with undeniable tongue-in-cheek appeal and even have a Facebook Page.

Watch this charming clip about the stool and see it in action on the pretty streets of Italy – you’ll be transported, I promise!
