The kitchen is often the favourite meeting place in a home and the kitchen island has become the central, spontaneous, area to welcome family and friends. To enhance quality of life, comfort is a must!
The kitchen’s central island is no longer only a work surface or a lunch counter; it has become a fun place to eat, replacing at times the dining room.
The kitchen island clearly reflects the changes in home life and society as well as how life is now lived. And to live well, you need to sit comfortably!
The Walter Tabourets product line was created to meet the needs of today’s kitchens . “We developed these products with three key principles in mind: comfort, quality and design”, states Guyleine Bureau, Founder and President of Walter Tabourets.
The Walter Tabourets Collection breaks from design codes that promote look over comfort. “The kitchen stool must relate to the times and needs of those who use it. This was my guiding principle when I decided to go for models that featured backs and upholstered seats. I did so to move away from the ‘programmed anachronisms’ where kitchen counter stools were only selected for their streamlined shapes exempt of back or upholstery”, clarifies the president of Walter Tabourets. “However, choosing comfort doesn’t mean sacrificing look. The stool is to the kitchen what the handbag is to the outfit: an accessory that completes the look”.
The Walter Tabourets product line was launched by this retailer after a decade of behind-the-scenes work looking for quality products at affordable prices for the Léo Victor boutique. “I worked on all kinds of chairs and stools made in Asia, Europe, Quebec and the rest of North America. I tested them for quality, comfort and client appeal. After being fully immersed in this creative venture in seats, I gathered all the best components in order to create a superior quality stool at a reasonable price.”
The Walter Tabourets Collection uses brushed steel as the main component of the seat-rail and leg. The satin finish of this type of metal definitely upstages chrome, and its garish look often associated to inexpensive stools, or painted metal that never looks classy. Brushed steel resembles stainless steel and can easily match stainless kitchen appliances. The superior-quality central cylinder allows for customized adjustments in height and can easily support heavy people. Its mechanism is guaranteed, something rare for these types of stools.
Seats are upholstered with 100% synthetic material, look and feel like rich leather and promote easy cleaning. All models are available in a variety of colours, from dark to colourful.
All the products of this new collection were created and planned in Montreal. They were produced abroad in order to strike a balance between design, quality, comfort, emotion
The products of Walter Tabourets are available in more than 30 points of sale in Quebec.
