(Relaxnews) – You could be forgiven for thinking this nebulous-looking seat belonged in a field, but the Baa Stool is in fact the latest quirky design to hit the world of interiors.

Set to go on display at Clerkenwell Design Week in London later this month, the handmade stool comprises a luxurious removable sheepskin cover on a hardwood frame.

Produced by designer Michelle Bartleet-Greavey, the pieces were inspired by the sheep in the countryside surrounding her home in North Wales, UK.

Each stool is made using local materials, with premium-grade British sheepskin stitched into a sleeve to create the covers.

The stools are available in natural shades of ivory, dark brown, mottled creams and browns and a limited-edition pink.

The hardwood legs come in two lengths and can be either turned to resemble sheep’s hooves or left to taper simply. Each stool is available for £299 (approximately $500).

Clerkenwell Design Week runs from May 20-22.
