As can be seen from the photographs, the line is very clean and classic, typical the stools by T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings design.
The stools by T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings pair is ideal for furnishing bedrooms, to be placed on the edge of the bed, or to complement very warm and enveloping living areas in a classic style. Some areas of the fur may denote slightly more yellow areas, but this is typical of the fur.

The design work of T. H. Robsjohn Gibbings is hallmarked as a modern mixture of the classical elements of Ancient Grecian design, and Art Deco design. It features mosaic floor reproductions, sculptural fragments, and sparse furnishings, all combining to achieve his trademark brand of modern historicism. He disliked the prevailing tastes of the day, describing them as “an indigestible mixture of Queen Anne, Georgian and Spanish styles.” He likewise considered Bauhaus-style modernism a fraud; he expressed his views in his writings such as Goodbye, Mr. Chippendale (1944), a spoof of modern interior design, Mona Lisa’s Mustache: A dissection of Modern Art (1947), and Homes of the Brave (1953).
