Shortstop Child’s Stool

A playful, functional and colourful stool for any children’s play area, or even the living room. From Australian designer, Keryn Hughes and In Your Room

25 Jul 2011

Designed by: Keryn Hughes of In Your Room


I am: A stool – designed predominantly as a first independent seat for a child (18 months – school age) but doubles as a stepstool, footstool and mini table for kids and adults alike.


About me:

Designer Keryn Hughes has a passion for creating simple, well-designed children’s furniture. It’s a passion that sparked the creation of her business – In Your Room – which now makes furniture from moulded plywood for every room of the house for kids and adults alike.

The perfect example of her love for kids furniture is the Shortstop Stool, with its organic, clean line making it as desireable a piece for the living room as for the kids’ bedrooms or play area.



Part of the full In Your Room Shortstop range – all designed and made in Australia – the Shortstop Stool is a versatile piece in its own right but also the perfect accompaniment to the Shortstop Child’s Table, Tablebox and Longrain Stool.




This month actually sees the release of new colours to the range – orange and purple – joining the kaleidoscope of colour choices. The stool also comes in natural beech.

Because young Design Hunters shouldn’t go without either!
