Description

This 18” tall cow milking stool gives an authentic look, while the 9” wide by 1.25” thick backless saddle seat is the perfect resting spot. Clean lines and thick braces provide the ideal footrest to accent the rich dark color.

Designer Advice

Other styles of milk stools forego the flat round seat in place of a curved saddle seat design that can create a more comfortable seating arrangement. However, the downside of having a curved seat is that it can be more difficult to use the stool for a tabletop display. Instead, decorate your stool with a soft pillow and a cozy throw.

Buying Guide

Milking stools can be practical and delightful additions to homes. As its name suggests, a milking stool is made to be used for milking cows and goats; however, homeowners and furniture makers have seen its potential which is why it now has a variety of functions including as a comfortable footrest, an end table, and an indoor/outdoor seating option. Its stylish silhouette is also capable of enhancing a room’s overall look.

Choosing a milking stool can seem pretty easy but it’s more complicated than it seems, which is why we’ve decided to list down a couple of tips to help you make sure that you get the stools that look great, feel comfortable, and last for years. Check them out!

Milking stools are constructed using durable materials in order to support weight properly. In the past, they were mainly made of solid wood, which is a material that's great for its strength, durability, and of course, aesthetics. But, they're now available in other materials including metal and plastic.

If you're looking for a material for milking stool that's the best, we would recommend that you look for a mahogany construction. Mahogany gives milking stools an exceptionally beautiful stature and affordable value. It's a medium-density type of wood and it creates an exotic look with its unique and stunning patterns which will definitely add character into your home.

Another type of wood that is often used with milking stools is oak. It creates a traditional or modern milk chair and it's incredibly long-lasting with its strength and durability. It's a high-density material and milking stools made of oak will last a century if maintained properly.

When it comes to the seat material, function and comfort are the two significant factors that are to be taken into consideration. The choices are between:

  • Upholstered Milking Stool - Lots of homeowners prefer the comfort well-cushioned, upholstered milking stools offer. An upholstered seat for a milking stool won’t just increase the chair's aesthetic value, but it will also give you an opportunity to add some texture, pattern or color into your living spaces. Some of the best upholstery materials for milking stools include polyester, leather, and microfiber.
  • No Cushion Milking Stool - An unupholstered seat for a milking stool is best for an area that receives high traffic. It offers an easy and quick cleanup as well as maintenance. It's also ideal if you entertain frequently as there is no cushion that gets worn out from constant use. It is a good choice as well if your home has small kids. An upholstered seat lets you be free from worrying about staining and wear.
