Alvar Aalto-style Paula stool at JYSK


Look familiar? Yes, you could be forgiven for thinking that this is the classic Alvar Aalto Artek 60 stool. But it isn't, this is the much cheaper Paula stool at JYSK.

If you've never hard of JYSK, it's a Danish chain of him stores that seems to be expanding across the UK and indeed, the world. This is part of its current range, a still that looks almost identical to the 1933 Aalto design and modernist icon.

Of course, there are subtle differences, but compared to the £165 price of an original, this birch stool sells for just £6.99. Yes, you read that right. Downside? No online ordering, but you can check the site for your nearest branch, if you want a closer look.
