A seat or bench for use especially by pianists. There are two types The first type, which are mainly Victorian, and of English origin, have a circular upholstered adjustable screw seat, able to be wound up or down. They are decorative in their way, but very restricting to the performer. The second type, popular after around 1890, were commonly made in Australia, and is of a simpler bench design, sometimes with arms, sometimes not, and the seat may or may not be upholstered. Frequently the seat has a lift up lid and a box for holding music. Duet stools (seating two), in the bench type are rare, and in the screw type even rarer.

Learn about Stools

There are two distinct types of stools. The earliest is the simplest type of seat furniture probably devised by human beings, consisting of a short wooden bench standing either on four legs or sometimes a flat-shaped support at either end. The legs may be square or turned, and in primitive versions simply sticks cut from a tree. Round milking stools usually had only three short legs. The second more sophisticated type of stools, were constructed with a frame joined by mortice and tenon joints. Using this construction method, padded or upholstered stools for use in the drawing room have been made since the 17th century, following the trends in stylistic design over the years.
