A Hornsey stool ticks all the boxes: handy for pruning the wisteria, children love to climb up and sit on it, cooks use it to reach high cupboards, and creatives sit on it to paint, play instruments, you name it…

Giggy & BabAs it is, the good people at Country Living Christmas 2018 magazine have chosen to put a red Hornsey stool on the Gifts for Cooks double page spread. We’re happy to share the space with this fab goat jug from, and lovely trad basket from

The whole magazine is a cracking Christmassy read… ok so it’s only October but no time like the present (excuse the gift-related pun).

While we’re on the subject, seasonal uses for a Hornsey stool include:

  • Decorating your Christmas tree
  • Extra seat at the Christmas lunch table (especially good for kids)
  • A perch for keeping cook company in the kitchen as s/he slaves over a hot stove
  • In the living room, steps out make useful shelves for mince pies, prosecco, chocs, port…. Rennies


Festival of Female Entrepreneurs In other news, Giggy & Bab is proud to be providing stools for speakers on stage at the forthcoming Festival of Female Entrepreneurs in Bristol on 19 October 2018, organised by marvellous small business network Enterprise Nation.

The day-long event boasts an amazing line-up of inspiring entrepreneuses, and promises to be a belter par excellence. Details here.

Those in attendance include a veritable constellation of stellar Emmas. Emma Jones and Emma Greenfield of Enterprise Nation, Sunday Times business journalist Emma Broomfield, and Emma Bridgewater (no introduction necessary)… a woman after my own heart, she refused to outsource manufacturing to low wage economies and has become a champion of British industry.
