Product details

Our classically curvaceous Thakat Stool is a much-loved seat design that’s been with us from our beginning and is handcrafted by our fair trade friends in India from sustainably sourced solid rosewood. With soft lunar curves and smoothed edges, this traditional Indian occasional seat flows with your décor, sitting beautifully at the end of your bed, as a charming window seat, in the hall or even at the piano for those musically-minded. Unlike boudoir versions, ours is a big beautiful statement piece, hand carved from solid sheesham hardwood to give it 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 protecting the wood from blooms caused by hot or wet items.

disappointment... :-(
| 01 Feb 2018
Service The fact that the stool's legs need bracing with a wooden lath in transit might tell Myakka that this furniture has design weaknesses! Myakka were easy to contact re returning the item but they get fewer stars for not refunding as soon as I sent photos of the broken stool, I had to wait nearly a week before a carrier picked up the item so that a refund would be issued. Product I was looking forward to using my Thakat stool with our piano. I unpacked it carefully and within 2 minutes the whole thing collapsed and thankfully I was able to land on my albeit arthritic knees! I expect a stool to be sturdy which this definitely was not.

Thakat Stool
| 14 Mar 2017
Unfortunately the stools arrived with protective wooden batons nailed to the base of the legs of the stools. One of these nails had split the base of one of the legs and the others all snapped off while trying to remove them (though not before cutting my hand). Although I'd carefully followed the instructions for removing the 'protective wooden batons' it was incredibly hard work and damaging to the stools.

Thakat Review
, Berkshire | 26 Oct 2016
Overall content with purchase but just three stars as I found that the legs were a quit thin when looked at from from the side view. I had expected them to be more substantial from impression given by front view.. Still think Myakka is a great company to deal with. and would recommend them but not necessarily this product

, Hampshire | 04 Oct 2016
I was very pleased with my stool but slightly perplexed when unwrapping it. It had two bits of board on the legs which i understood should come off but getting them off was a project in itself, as i was nervous of damaging the wood. There was no suggestions on the best way of doing this or getting those horrid little pins out. Other than that beautiful and much admired

Stunning statement piece
| 04 Oct 2016
Beautifully made and finished piece of furniture that is a true statement piece. Definitely not a run of the mill item. Arrived with protective plywood strips across the bottom of the legs. Not easy to remove as nails were embedded in the wood. This is the reason for the 4 stars as I didn't expect to have to remove these myself (or have so much difficulty removing them!).

Packaging
| 20 Sep 2016
The packaging overall was very effective, but the two strips of plywood attached to the feet of the stool were difficult to remove, hammer and pliers were needed, and each of the panel pins securing the wood snapped when I tried to remove them. I am sure there are other equally effective means of protecting the feet of the stool during transit without nailing pieces of wood to the feet of the stool.
Would you recommend to a friend? Yes
A note from the team

Thank you for your review. We have been developing the packaging of the Thakat Stool to support the legs whilst in transit. We are using your feedback to to try and improve it further to both protect the legs and make it easier for customers to remove the supports. We have now also included instructions with the stool on the best way to remove the supports.

Wonderful stool!
, Somerset | 02 Aug 2015
I bought this stool yesterday and I am thrilled with it. I have looked at it for ages and then I saw it in the sale... Fantastic! I live only half an hour away from the Wincanton shop so I was able to go and pick it up. It's really beautiful and sturdy. It is my new dressing table stool and I love it. I also bought a beautiful large rug some weeks ago which looks great over my flagstone floor in my kitchen. I highly recommend this shop... The staff are so helpful and it's a pleasure to visit!

Unfortunately when we unpacked it there was a large crack across one of the legs and so we have arranged for an exchange. It is a beautifully shaped piece and so we had no hesitation in ordering an exchange rather than being refunded. The lady on the telephone was very efficient and the exchange process was completed quickly. We are really looking forward to receiving the replacement.

Very nice piece of furniture
| 29 Jun 2013
The stool is really lovely, beautifully made and perfect for our hall. We did have some issues though. We agreed the day it would be delivered and I stayed home from work. Unfortunately it was sent via Royal Mail and they failed to turn up on the agreed date. As I was unable to stay home another day they had to leave it outside. The first stool was also quite badly damaged (given the type of fault it's unlikely this was as a result of delivery, so was probably damaged before it was shipped); so we had to wait a further week for an exchange to take place. However the second stool is fine and worth the wait. Only other comment is one of the nails in the runners (which are attached to the feet during delivery) was extremely long and required pliers to remove. Having said all that, I would absolutely recommend this product! It is extremely good quality for the price.

Poor quality
| 01 Nov 2012
Bought 3 of these stools - sat on one and it fell apart - I weigh 7 stones!! Sent it back and I was sent another broken stool, sent that back again - only to be sent yet another broken stool !! Needless to say, we are afraid to use the 2 remaining stools for fear of them collapsing. However, I must say, the service from Myakka regarding the returmpns and eventual refund was prompt and courteous. I have a feeling the problem is in the flimsy packaging.

A note from the team

Thank you for taking the time to review the Chandra Stool. We are really sorry about the problems you had with the stool and we have passed this onto our supplier. We have worked with our supplier to strengthen the stool by adding small metal brackets to the underside of the stool to stop any further problems of this nature occurring again. We have also modified our packaging design to make the stool a lot stronger during transit so it will arrive with customers in perfect condition. We are constantly working with our suppliers to ensure that our products are always as they are designed to be. Feedback is always so important to us as it helps us improve all the time.

Hammer needed
| 19 Oct 2012
I do like the product very much. However, if you live on your own as I do make sure you own a hammer to deal with the 'runners' that are the packaging. It took me some time, a scratched leg, and a cut thumb to remove them (because it had to be done with a knife). I wish I had known this at the time of purchase. Still, they are now reoved, my thumb has stopped bleeding, and the stool looks good!

A note from the team

Thank you for letting us know about this problem, we are so sorry that you had complications with your Chandra Stool. The ‘runners’ were added to the legs to try and protect the stool during transit. We have looked into your feedback and agree that they have been attached to strongly and can be difficult to remove. We are using your feedback to work with our supplier to try and come up with a solution to both protect the stool and the customer when taking them off. Thanks again for taking the time to feedback, we always try and use it to improve.
