You could be forgiven for thinking this nebulous-looking seat belonged in a field, but the Baa Stool is in fact the latest quirky design to hit the world of interiors.

Is it a furry stool, a fluffy cloud or a fuzzy sheep? Whatever it is, wouldn’t you like to have one?

Set to go on display at Clerkenwell Design Week in London later this month, the handmade and cheekily named Baa Stool comprises a luxurious removable sheepskin cover on a hardwood frame. 

Produced by British designer Michelle Bartleet-Greavey, the pieces were inspired by the sheep in the countryside surrounding her home in North Wales.

According to Bartleet-Greavey, each stool is made using local materials, with premium-grade British sheepskin stitched into a sleeve to create the covers. The stools are available in natural shades of ivory, dark brown, mottled creams and browns and a limited-edition pink. There are also other colour options but these depend when you place your order online. 

The hardwood legs come in two lengths and you can choose between a design resembling sheep’s hooves or a minimalist tapered design that's less animalistic. Each stool currently retails for 299 pounds (RM1,642).
