PONYING UP -> After a brief release more than a decade ago, Haworth brought back its playful Shetland rocking stool.
Michael Welsh, who designed the revival, said the piece was “meant to be informal, supple and iconic in its shape,” plus you can stow a briefcase underneath it. The stool, which comes in a stationary version as well, will be available in September in a painted finish or a walnut veneer, and will range from $700 for the stool alone to $2,000 with the optional companion covers in wool and leather that evoke horse blankets and saddles.
