Much like the RÅSKOG cart, the BEKVÄM step stool is a kitchen workhorse. Once you start looking for it, you see it everywhere!

The BEKVÄM comes in unpainted wood, but it seems you rarely find it that way. It’s so easy to paint, so you often see it as a brightly colored piece in the kitchen — a shot of electric yellow or red in the corner or under the table. It’s also a great piece for kids.

Do you have the BEKVÄM stool in your kitchen?
