In the world of design, drawing, architecture and engineering, this storage furniture, called taboret, is known to be one of the most useful for a studio or a work room.

What is a Taboret?

Many people have never heard of the term and probably have not considered using it for such an item. They are often seen in artists’ studios, but are also suitable for use in a work room, craft room or even a sewing room. Taborets (also called stool table) usually have the ability to move around a room (because they have rollers, casters, or wheels), which makes them popular with painters who need a place to put their paintings and other supplies next to their easels. There are also drawers for storing supplies.


History of Taboret

The history of the taboret is of what was once a small stool. This stool was short, with no back or arms and was probably called taboret because it was cylindrical and resembled a drum (in old French, the word for drum is tabur). In France at the time of King Louis XIV (in the 1600s), special visitors to the royal family received a seat of honor on a more elaborate version of a stool. It was an upholstered piece of furniture in the decorative style of the time (it was sometimes a folding stool) with wooden legs and tassels on the edges. When royalty came to visit, this fancy taboret was taken out by a servant and placed just in front of the queen. Sitting on it was a coveted privilege often given to the Duchesses.

So in the past, you could say, pull up a taboret, instead of pulling a chair, but today it wouldn’t work at all! It works for placing objects on top and inside (in drawers or cabinet).

The Taboret Today

Today, taborets are not as elaborate or decorative. We now use the term for a portable stand or cabinet or cart for storing plastic or wooden art supplies. Larger taborets can be used to hold a table easel and paints, brushes, and other paint supplies. Many are made of oak or birch wood, and are quite attractive (although these larger ones can be expensive). If you are considering buying one, you can find them at local art supply stores and many online stores.
