One of the hazards of founding mywarehousehome.com has been that, as we research unique and unusual industrial, vintage and reclaimed items to recommend to you all, we inevitably fall in love with most of it ourselves! Tiffany Jayne hand crafts these wonderful storage stools and bench stools from vintage wooden apple boxes sourced in Norfolk.
The storage stool measures 21 inches in width, 13 inches in height and 14.5 inches in depth. And with a hinged lid, it’s the perfect place to store away all sorts of bits and bobs, from children’s toys to books and dvds. The professionally upholstered lid also makes this a very comfortable stool or footstool. If you have a particular scheme that you need to match, you can post your own fabric to Tiffany Jayne. Otherwise, there is the option to select from a range of beautiful English country style linen based fabrics by Emily Bond, Ada & Ina and Peony and Sage, all of which perfectly complement the rustic style of the apple crates.

We’re putting in an order for an apple box bench stool, which we’d like to put at the end of our bed for spare bedding, towels etc. The bench is formed from two apple crates (42 inches x 13 inches x 14.5 inches), providing even more storage space, and again has a hinged upholstered lid. Our bedroom curtains are floral printed natural-coloured linen and the blinds are a rustic stripe-printed natural linen. So we’re going to provide a lovely heavy plain natural-coloured linen for Tiffany Jayne to upholster our stool. We can’t wait to see our apple box bench stool in place!
