The name of this piece has been chosen as a nod to Guy de Maupassant’s famous character from the novel “Bel Ami”. Seemingly fragile yet resilient, reserved yet determined, Du Roy stool does not let on and stands out for its spirited design.
Shaped as a King’s throne and displaying dynamic wavy pattern on the surface, Du Roy exudes timeless nobility and panache. Either serving as indoor or outdoor furniture piece, Du Roy entices any modern enthusiasms.
Different colors are available. Please contact Pamono with your preference.
