Resident’s Kashmir chair and stool exemplify this and then some. So prolific have these styles become, in fact, that they can be found in some of the most impressive homes around the world, beloved for the pared-back elegance they bring to a space.

Both the chair and stool boast a curved, steel frame that proves how impactful simple design can be, with slender, straight legs that offset a meticulously-stitched, tailored backrest—made to curve comfortably around the sitter. Despite their sparseness, the Kashmir chair and stool have been designed with comfort in mind, each version boasting a plush, upholstered seat that makes us forget any uncomfortable encounters we might have had with dining chairs or barstools in the past. Here, the rules have been re-written.

Able to be made in a wide variety of textures and colours, the Kashmir chair and stool will deliver a touch of simple sophistication to any kind of home. So why not make it yours?
