2015 – Year of the Wooden Sheep/Goat


Hi I’m David, new to the Baa Stool team and I was born in the year of the Metal Sheep.

2015 is the Year of the Wooden Sheep.   We reckon that means it’s the Year of the Baa Stool – The luxury Sheepskin Footstools with wooden legs!

It’s our Year

According to Chinese Zodiac there are many lucky things associated with the Year of the Sheep.

The Lucky colours of this year include Red, Brown and Purple, all of which are available as Baa Stools.



August and November are the lucky months of the Year of the Sheep. Baa Stool was created in November and Michelle was also born in that month. Llinos, another member of the team has her birthday in August which also happens to be when New York Now takes place.  It’s the biggest trade fair in America and Baa Stool will be there to take the US by storm!
