Design by Philippe Starck.
Made in Italy by Kartell.

Charles Ghost is a transparent monobloc in polycarbonate, which makes it indestructible and allows it to be used everywhere, indoors and outdoors. The shape recalls that of the chairs of the 1800s, the line of the rounded leg is slightly curled, the icon of the classic stool. The contemporary stool, formed from a single plastic injection mold, is available in three different heights. It is suitable for indoor use and outdoor, it matches every furnishing style and every culture. The taller height is perfect for use as a bar stool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and functional! I love the set of 4 Charles Ghost stools I bought to go under a black walnut checkerboard kitchen breakfast island in my kitchen. As a mother of 2 young boys they are easy to clean and the opaque white color is stunning! Before I placed my order I was going to order the clear stools but after describing the kitchen to the sales associate he suggested the white opaque...they coordinate beautifully with the large Hicks pendents from Circa Lighting in the room. It was well worth the wait. Thank you so much for the lovely addition to my kitchen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Charles Ghost stool in pale green is simply stunning. Working with YLighting was a friendly, efficient experience. They were most cooperative about giving me EXACT dimensions, as the stool sits over a small kitchen pipe and had to be able to clear it. My counters are dark green marble and the backsplash is a pale mint green. The green stool looks as if Kartell and I collaborated on the design and color! I love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Charles Ghost Stools are beautiful! I purchased 2 Charles Ghost stools in crystal to go along with a bar height table from a more moderately priced retailer. The addition of the stools makes the table look more elegant. The color of the stools allows for them to be used in any environment, so they can be moved from room to room easily! They look beautiful & were received in my tight time frame.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very modern, practical, comfortable We purchased 2 smoke-colored Charles Ghost Stools for our apartment -- they definitely match the sleek, stainless decor we are going for. They are sturdy, comfortable, and very practical -- be careful when you order though, so that you order the right height!!! Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very Beautiful We received three Charles Ghost Stools in orange, crystal and blue. The proportions, transparent color and overall high-quality render these stools wonderfully sculptural and elegant in nature! We could not be happier with our purchase and timeliness!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really fun! I ordered the ghost stools in orange-- which felt really bold for me. I love white and neutrals and considered the clear stools, but felt I needed a pop of color in the kitchen and that this would be a fun way to do it. It is! The are really fun and cool, much less ubiquitous than the clear-- lots of personality! When they flood with sunlight they are especially gorgeous. They are relatively comfortable, but not super comfortable. I ordered three. One arrived solo and two arrived stacked in one box. The bottom of those two was pretty badly scratched, but YLiving had it picked up within a week and I am now waiting for my replacement. In general, they seem to fingerprint and get small scratches easily, so use it as an accent piece in a low traffic area or be okay with that. I am okay with it as it takes close inspection to see.

What is the weight of each stool? And do they scratch easily?

Asked by: Linle
These stools are lightweight. They range from about 5 pounds for the small version, to 6.5 pounds for the tallest model. These stools should not scratch easily, but it depends on the application. They are made for normal everyday use, but not for a commercial setting. If you have additional questions, please call one of our knowledgeable product specialists!
