Are you sick of trying to cram guest seating into a small room, scrambling to find chairs that fit and leave leg room? You may want to give modern nesting/ stacking stools a try. These fabulous pieces fit together like a puzzle, one that saves you space without sacrificing style and comfort.
1. Norwood Plastic Stack Stools
Norwood’s Colorful Plastic Stack Stools are a child’s delight! These bold and vivacious nesting stools are a great space-saving tool for both classrooms and children’s rooms.
They’re easy to clean, requiring only a quick wipe-down with a damp cloth. Non-skid pads on the stools’ feet prevent marking on hardwood floors and stability for children who like to wobble in their seat.
2. Vava Stool
There’s nothing ordinary about the Vava Stool. Not only is it easily stackable like other modern nesting stools, but it’s also a work of art waiting to happen. The soft arches that come to a point on the stool’s legs can form a fascinating sculpture in your living room no matter how they’re angled.
Create a stunning centerpiece for your room by flipping them upside down or rotating them, whatever your imagination leads you to do!
3. Elephant Stool
Sturdy and balanced like the thick feet of its namesake, the Vitra Elephant Stool is a marvelous bit of outdoor furniture. A special coating prevents it from blanching in moderate sunlight, so you won’t have to worry about an accidental bleach job on your new black furniture.
It also comes in a lovely cream color to suit just about any décor style.
4. Spin Stool
Don’t get dizzy looking at this stool for too long. The Spin Stool is a stackable seating option for the modern day minimalist, and it’s turning heads (both literally and figuratively!).
Carved in beautiful ash wood, the Spin Stool has both neutral and colorful options for your individual décor scheme. When you’re finished using it, simply stack each stool on top of the next and watch your floor space magically reappear. Looking for a more affordable option?

5. Tuck Stool
Some modern nesting stools let you keep stacking… and stacking… and stacking. The Tuck Stool is one of them. Just from looking at it, you could probably stack it a mile high and it would still remain sturdy and unmoveable.
Its solid design is still lightweight, lending it to outdoor functions as well as indoor ones. It’s a concept so simple that you could say it’s too genius to have been made before.
6. Butt Stools
The Butt bright colored stools can function as an extra seat in the living area, children’s room or bathroom. They are comfortable, durable and easyly transportable through the three holes. Also suitable for use outdoors.
You don’t have to worry about fading because of its UV-stable plastic material. What can we say more, Butt Stools look great in any interior, are space efficient, serve many purposes and are appealing to both parents and kids alike.
7. J+I Zig + Zag Stool
Raw design is always in style, and the J+I Zig Zag Stool uses that to its advantage. Two halves of bare wood have been carved out of what looks like a single sturdy log to make a couple of classy nesting stools.
The Zig Zag stool is especially pleasant to the nostrils due to the scented cedarwood used in its makeup, and it will last you for many years to come thanks to its solid construction.
8. UrbanMod Stool
Fresh, clean, crisp design in a stackable stool – what more could you ask for in a seating arrangement? Whether it’s a cocktail party with dozens of guests or a conversation around the fire pit, the UrbanMod Stackable Stool is there for you when you need it.
A set of 4 comes in five radiant colors for whatever suits your fancy, and you’ll soon be the life of the party when you show up with seating for all your friends.
9. Poke Stool
Sometimes it takes a novice to turn a design on its head. Kyuhung Cho began his career as a typography designer, and the Poke Stool was his first furniture design.
Most stacking stools have wide-spaced legs to fit around the edge of the seat: instead of mimicking this shape, Cho drilled holes in the edge of the seat so that the legs of one stool could slot into the seat of another. Each four-legged stool has eight holes, so that a further two stools can be stacked on top.
10. Glitzhome Nesting Side Table Set
These durable nesting tables with bubble pattern are a shining example of furniture that keeps the ‘fun’ in ‘multifunctional’. Glitzhome’s nesting tables can be used either as seating or side tables or plant stands and they work equally well outdoors as well as indoors.
Alternatively, the Glitzhome Nesting Side Table Set could be used as colorful decorations in a child’s room. The stools are avaliable in cream white, green, blue, yellow and orange.
11. Clover-Shaped StoolS
The luck of the Irish is now being brought to you as a seating option thanks to the Clover-3 and Clover-4 stools designed by Richard Hutten. Clover-4 is obviously the luckiest one, but one cannot escape the charm of the ‘three-leafed’ stool as well.
Made from solid walnut or oak, Clover provides you with comfortable, durable seating. They even have a version designed specifically for kids. It’s luck for the whole family!
12. Butter Stool
The Butter Stool is one of the most earth-friendly stools I’ve seen so far. Recyclable materials are becoming more popular in modern design (you may have heard about Emma Watson’s recycled dress). This has led to the creation of the Butter Stool, which is made from 80% recycled materials.
Despite its look, it’s actually a single piece folded at different angles, creating an incredibly sturdy piece that lasts longer than traditional design.
