Mini Bench Coffee Table from Frosta Stool

Materials: Frosta Stool, Screws, Screwdriver

Description: These are Frosta stools (a copy of an Alvar Alto stool for Artek) hacked into small coffee tables by moving the legs around (and using it differently than intended). I did not make these, I just saw them outside a place called Tully’s Cafe on the corner of Götgatan and Högbergsgatan in Stockholm, and thought I’d submit them.

Not sure if the stools are available at IKEA in the US though? They are called Frosta in Sweden at least.

    Very sadly, they are not available anymore in the United States or in Canada. I hear you can find copy of it at Target in the the States.

    I think this stool was one of the most popular Ikea classic design.
