If someone asked us to name an affordable design classic, the first thing we would say is likely to be the Robin Day Polo Chair. Designed back in 1973, it was the world's first indoor/outdoor polpropylene chair, complete with an eye-catching and timeless appeal, not to mention being very useful. So it's no surprise to hear that we also like the Robin Day Polo barstools.
Based on the original 1973 design, this variation isn't a million miles away from the standard chair, only this time there's the added height of the chrome frame – the seat part is identical. And like the standard Polo, it's available in a seemingly endless range of colours (not just the pink above).
More expensive than the £49 chair, the barstool will set you back £89, which still keeps it in that 'affordable' bracket.
