The stool "Palle” by Swedish Yngve Ekström is a design classic by one of the most famous Scandinavian designers of the 20th century.
This one is the dark green stained version. It's made of birch wood and has lots of patina, which gives it an unique and charming look.
It has two small, shallow holes in the seat, besides that just marks from use and age. It's still stable and it's easy to assembly the four legs. See photos for overall condition.
The wooden legs is screwed directly into the seat, making the pallet very stable and useful no matter where in the home you place it. A thrue multi-tasker, it works just as well as a bedside table, an extra seat or when you need to grab something high up.
Ekström designed this stool in the 1950s and it's still in production.
