Powell Big And Tall Stools

At the ongoing Spring High Point Market, Powell Home Fashions is expanding on several recent initiatives, including those associated with its Bombay brand license, accent furniture and juvenile bedding. But it also is growing a big and tall stool effort the company has said is paying large dividends.

Powell's big and tall stools are roomier than is typical of similar mass-market products and can support up to 400 pounds. However, the company notes that they have broad appeal because they sit more like standard chairs than stools and, so are more comfortable for everyday and entertaining purposes. With upholstered seats, the stools come in both metal and wood constructions.

The spring market concludes tomorrow in High Point, NC.
