Product details

Our gorgeous Thakat stool is so popular, we've designed a new, extra wide version to double the delight. With soft lunar curves and smoothed edges, this is traditional Indian design that flows with your décor, sitting at the end of your bed, as a window seat or in the hall. Unlike boudoir chairs, the original stool is a big beautiful statement piece, high enough for dining or at the piano. The new model is simply wider and just made for sharing. Both are hand carved in graceful curves from Sheesham hardwood, creating a weighty presence and a very grown-up grandeur.

100% Sheesham wood (Indian Rosewood) with a hand waxed finish.

Fair trade furniture imported directly from Northern India.

This product is delivered fully assembled

Care

As this Chandra Stool is hand waxed, we would strongly recommend the use of coasters and mats to protect the wood from blooms caused by hot or wet items.

beautiful items and great service
| 04 Apr 2018
Service I bought two round bedside tables and a bench. Very pleased with the look and quality. Smooth delivery by two very careful and polite people who arrived on time,unpacked and took away all the packaging. So nice to buy from this company as their products are fair trade and always very good quality and beautiful. Product A beautiful piece. Not too big so ideal at the end of a bed which is what I wanted. So nice, I'm tempted to buy another for another bedroom or under a window.

Thakat Large Stool
| 13 Dec 2017
Service My delivery slot was changed twice at the last minute. Very annoying when I had to rearrange plans to accommodate on two separate occasions. Eventually it was delivered at 7.30 am on a SATURDAY morning. I feel this was unacceptable as reasonable service let alone high quality. Product Lovely piece of furniture. Very pleased.

Where have you been all my life?!
| 09 Aug 2017
I had seen this bench ages ago and really liked it- every time I opened the catalogue I would always linger there and at the large shoe storage bench- which I have, now I have the space in my hallway. I really wanted a chaise longue but still can't find the perfect one! I love real wood, so I bought this in the sale- which was still expensive but I really did like it so I just got it. Other reviewers have commented on the lightness of it which makes it feel not very secure for more than one person- I have to say I agree, I feel I have to sit on it carefully because the legs are a bit slim. However two adults can fit on it comfortably, and I can even sit on it with my legs outstretched while chatting on the phone (I'm only 5ft!). It is a very lovely piece of furniture, the quality of the natural colour and finish speaks for itself. It doesn't really go with the modern vibe in my apartment, so it's in my bedroom- which I love because I don't want to share it with the kids! And i feel proud to say it's furniture from India! Don't hesitate to buy it, it really can blend in with most looks if you accessorise well, and it's such a beautiful shape- not just a boring bench and such a beauty to look at.

Thakat Stool
| 14 Feb 2017
The stool must have been packaged before the varnish was dry as some of the paper packaging was stuck to it. Varnish was missing and bits of the paper were ingrained in the wood. Excellent customer service no questions just ordered replacement product and kept the damaged product until a replacement came. Really pleased with the stool very lightweight but looks good and seems very sturdy. It's in the hall for anyone to sit on while taking off shoes and is just the job.

Thakat large stool
| 24 Nov 2016
I first saw this stool in John Lewis, but was put off by the price. I searched for the product range online and was delighted to discover this one from Myakka. Not only was it a Fair Trade product, but it was also £100 less. I am very happy with the stool and will shop with Myakka again

Looks nice but not very strong
| 23 Sep 2016
Initially very pleased with this but just one weekend of constant use and leg joints came loose and it became unstable. The attachment of the legs is through rather thin pieces of wood and it was simply not sturdy enough for my family's use. A shame but as it had 'broken' so quickly I have been offered a full refund. Hopefully it will be collected for return and the refund will come through. Would hav e been very useful as it can easily seat two but I'm going to have to look for something more sturdily built.

Lovely addition to our hallway

Really like this product
| 30 Sep 2014
The stool fits beautifully in the bay window recess in my living room. It's a really nice piece of furniture, I am using it as a table to display items but it can easily be cleared for extra seating should the need arise. It is good quality and built to last - I am very pleased with it. The only issue was the long wait for the delivery which was 10 weeks! Such a long time to wait - but still really pleased with the product. Excellent!

Chandra Large Stool

I have coveted this stool for more than two years, thought why shouldn't i , so I bought it. I love it, have it at the bottom of my bed. Everyone who has seen it admires it. My only gripe is it's now £50 cheaper in the sale. Still love it though

Slight Disappontment
| 04 Apr 2014
I loved the design and shape of the Chandra stool, but was not happy with the roughness of the finish: come some fine Spring/Summer weather I shall be taking it into the garden to sand it down before I can wax it. I would not buy from Myakka again unless I had an assurance of proper finishing of the product. E.A.

A note from the team

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are very sorry that your Chandra Stool did not arrive with you in perfect condition. As discussed, some wax is on its way to you, which should help with the roughness. If you have any further queries or questions please do let us know and we will be happy to help.
