John Austin

Bespoke British Handmade Piano Stools

Please note: all John Austin Piano Stools are available in a White Finish

Simply click-through on any stool picture, until you see the colour chart selector.


The John Austin range of piano stools are made to last in solid timbers and upholstered using traditional methods and materials.

These sumptuous stools are hand-crafted with care and made to order in the United Kingdom.  This process only takes between 15 to 20 working days to complete.  Your stool is then safely delivered to your door or work-place by courier.


British Standards

Both our John Austin and   Woodhouse   premium and budget range of piano stools, are all hand-made to 'British Standards'.  This is important when you start to consider consistency of materials used and especially British Standards regarding fire safety - this can not always be guaranteed when purchasing upholstered piano stools, which are mass-produced and imported by the container-load from the 'Far East', for example.


Upholster with your own fabric

You can fully customise your British hand-crafted stool to your particular desire - you choose the colour, fabric, leather and wood finish.

We can even upholster the stool with your own fabric, just click on the "Supply my own fabric" swatch towards the bottom of any stool page.  Your order confirmation email will then contain all the information you need - you will then be able to send us your own fabric with the correct dimensions and specification.


Each Stool is Unique

All the stools we sell are hand-made and therefore, each stool is unique.  The nature of the hand-making process ensures that your stool will be very slightly different from any other piano stool sold.  Furthermore, your stool will not only be the colour and finish you choose;  including a bespoke 'colour matching' service but will also be upholstered with one of many fabric options - or even with the material that you supply.


The real feel

The touch and feel of real wood, compared to composite alternatives, can not be overstated.  A piano stool made from real wood is warm, pleasant and reassuring to the touch - it will also give you a lifetime of enjoyment.  A 'real wood' piano stool would also make a much loved family heirloom.


Can't quite find the right wood colour?

Give us a quick call on 01953 456 654 to discuss your requirements and we'll advise you on how to choose the best colour match to your piano.  This may also involve you emailing a photo of your instrument - but don't worry, we'll also advice you on how to best go about this as well.  Ultimately, you'll then be the proud owner of a sympathetically colour-matched piano stool that will complement your treasured family piano, harp or keyboard.


Looking for a white stool?

All the stools we sell are available in a white finish.  Just click through on any stool image until you see the Stool Colour Chart - then simply click on your chosen colour, done!  If for some reason, you find a stool with no white option shown then please just call us on
(01953) 456 654.
