Nilserik Stool From Ikea

Recommended Posts

I have been trying to find a stool for throwing that will tilt and be adjustable height. . . I saw the nilserik at Ikea yesterday and for $50 bucks seems like it would be a good less expensive alternative to the fancier stools available - but it kinda rocks and swivels

 

I was wondering if anyone has used it?

No,I use a stool made for handicap people getting in and out of a bath tub. It tilts, is adjustable height and has a broad seat which helps not having pressure points . Best part , it was 5$ at the 2nd had store.. they are there often. Best wheel seat ever. I REALLY believe in the tilt.

this moves too much to allow you to concentrate on what is in front of you without having the stool slide backward and throw YOU on the floor.  see above post.

 

those nice, round bottoms look great and the designer must be very proud.  BUT once you fall off of one of them you will understand.

Before switching to throwing standing up, I just used a normal old wooden kitchen chair from Target. I put rubber stoppers on the back legs to tilt it forward a little more. I liked having the back on the chair so I could sit back and relax when needed.

 

For the classroom wheels I have a bunch of square wood stools form Ikea, that they unfortunately don't sell any more. They were only about $12 each! Every few years I have to re-glue them, but they're still going strong after 11 years of heavy studio use. Some of my students bring a small cushion to put on them.

I called it a stool, but it is really a bench . They come regular chair width or extra wide,so that one side is on the bathroom floor and the other is in the tub,tub side has big rubber cup feet to prevent sipping. Very stable. I guess there are more old folks in the South,because the resales stores here almost always have one. Google 2nd hand hospital supplies in your area .??

aperhapshand: I bought the Shimpo adjustable stool years ago. I am convinced that we should spend some money to prevent later orthopedic problems. I am with oldlady on the nilserik stool. You would wiggle around too much on that stool.

 

Claylover: we MUST have a pic of that special stool of yours!

31xxihjs2gl.jpg115 bucks, but I have been using this stool  in the studio for two years now, and love it. Years ago I bought a bunch of these for the hs, and 30 of the flat ones. They are still holding up quite well for wheel work, and others are working well for the classes that are Art 1 and Ceramics 1. No punctures in stiff padded top, no gas cylinder problems, and no breaking arms. HS kids are rough on furniture and these are tough stools.

 

 

best,

Pres

I completely agree with Pres. I have been using a "secretary's chair" for 10-years, and love it. It has a taller back then the one Pres uses, but otherwise is the same. I love being able to swivel the seat, lean back against the chair back, and even "crab" around, since the 5-wheels allow it. When new, these can be a bit expensive, but hey, my back is worth it! If you can find a used one, it's even better.

Good luck, whatever you choose.

I have an old "office chair"  leather padded seat and back-adjustable height and wheels --found it free at the swap building at the recycle center (dump).  Have been using it for about 20 years.  Keep hunting!
