Booti Stools

“Quirky” – it’s a word with an unfairly low reputation. Also a word that gets thrown around the British designer Jonathan Trayte quite a bit. When you stop to think about it, though – and Trayte’s work is an ideal prompt to do just that – quirks are downright fascinating: little sideways slides from the expected, the sort of thing that makes a person or an object worth knowing. They give a place its charm, a story its atmosphere. Trayte’s objects are, essentially, quirks in physical form. Each reminds you of things you’ve seen before, transformed through color and composition into an unforgettable new concoction. His Booti stools, for example, have Pink Panther legs and blue-and-white patent leather seats, like something from a 1960s bus interior. Not quite elegant, not quite awkward, they are above all specific, just the right kind of weird to fall in love with.
