The chair ironing board step stool combination is a piece of furniture which features a chair, an ironing board as well as a step stool in the same piece and can be converted into either of the three and used as per the choice and convenience of the user. It was way back during the eighteenth century that furniture of this type was in vogue thus making it vintage in the present era. Being a part of the vintage collection of furniture, it is but natural that this is available in wood only and is generally found in stores which sell vintage wooden furniture.
When it was discovered back in the eighteenth century, the chair ironing board step stool combination was popularly referred to as the ‘Bachelor’s chair’ as it was meant to serve uses other than just to facilitate sitting. It is since then that the chair has been fitted with metal hinges and wooden parts so that it can be transformed into a seat, a step stool or an ironing board without the requirement of any additional parts. The ingenuity of this wooden piece of furniture lies in the fact that while fixed in a seated position, the ironing board serves as the back of the chair and can be pulled out whenever needed for ironing and the front step serves as a flap which conceals the 2-3 steps of the step stool. The height of the chair and the step stool, as well as the length of the ironing board, are various factors which can be decided as per the requirement of the user.
It is rightly believed that it is the little things within the house in form of furniture which adds to its beauty, warmth and charm and therefore selecting the right wooden furniture which reflects the effort of master craftsmen would evidently make a lot of difference. Wooden furniture which has been handcrafted from high-quality wood prevalent during the yesteryears is often reflective of excellent craftsmanship and is passed across generations as a family heirloom.
The chair ironing board step stool combination is ideal for being placed in the laundry room, kitchen or in the shop which are locations in which all the three components can be put to use. While it is a good choice to spruce up the laundry room décor, its usefulness in the kitchen or the shop is apparent from the fact that it is an ideal accessory for gaining access to seemingly out-of-reach areas.
