Known for its standout shoes and accessories crafted from kilim textiles, Artemis Design Co. has been adding eclectic flare to Bostonians’ wardrobes for five years. Now, the company has teamed up with Swampscott-based Trim Design Co. to release a collection of eight bespoke stools to bring that same global touch to a few lucky homes. “A little footstool seems like a natural extension of our line and a small way to dip our toe into the furniture and home market,” says Artemis founder Milicent Armstrong.
Available for preorder, each stool ($528) features three sleek legs furnished from walnut wood that complement seats upholstered in a vintage hand-loomed Turkish fabric. Aside from the imported textiles, each piece is entirely fashioned in Boston. “We spared no expense in creating these,” Armstrong says. “We agreed that if we were going to create something, it should be something that will be loved and used for generations to come.”
With plans to add larger ottoman-style pieces in the near future, Armstrong is hoping the expanding collection will add a pop of color and dash of history to every owner’s home.
