About the Designer
Philippe Starck Philippe Starck France (1949 - )

He remembers having spent his childhood under his father's drawing tables, passing hours stitching, cutting, gluing and grinding, disassembling bicycles, motorbikes and other objects. Endless hours, an entire life spent dismantling and reassembling anything that fell into his hands, reconstructing his surrounding world. He continues to shake the traditions and culture of the world's major cities, with the interior design of the restaurant at Hong Kong's Peninsula Hotel (1994), the Teatron in Mexico (1995), the Delano Hotel a Miami (1995), the Modrian in Los Angeles (1996), the Asia de Cuba restaurant in New York (1997), as well as an entire series of ongoing projects in London and elsewhere. His skill lies in being able to transform instantly the object of the commission into a place filled with charm, pleasure and encounters. He tirelessly modifies everyday life, exalting the deepest roots of existence in his changes. His increasing fascination with life has now led him to create clothes, underwear, footwear, glasses, food, and always with the conviction that his design respects nature and the future of humankind. In the exhibits of museums all around the world, in Paris, New York, Munich, London, Chicago, Kyoto and Barcelona, his work is considered to be that of a master. He has received numerous prizes and awards: designer of the year, the Oscar de luminaire (1980), the title of Officier des Artes et des Lettres (1985), Compasso d'Oro ADI (2001), Show Boats in Munich (2003), and many others.

Kartell Charles Ghost 18" Barstool


Modern Classic

 from Charlotte, NC– Verified Buyer

Beautiful stool, a new classic and well made. Has a top hole for easy carrying and prevents water buildup if used outside.

 from West Bloomfield, MI– Verified Buyer

I would have given this product 5/5 stars if that shipping had been faster. When I ordered the product my estimated shipping date changed 3 times, so it took about 2 months to arrive. All in all, I am however very pleased with the ghost stools. They add a contemporary element to the room.

18" barstool

 from San Francisco, CA– Verified Buyer

The stools are just the right height for my breakfast table. They're high quality and look exactly as expected. The only downside was delivery time; they look ages to arrive and the shipping date was pushed out for a month past the already long lead time.

Love It!

 from San Mateo, CA– Verified Buyer

I thought it might be too small, but the stool fits the space in our vanity dressing area perfectly, the seat diameter and height are perfect for putting on shoes and it makes a great statement in the fact it is so translucent it takes up almost no visual space at all. Don't be fooled by the description. This is not a barstool. It's way too short for a barstool.

These little stools are wonderful. They look amazing. We have a couple of the taller ghost stools as well and love them all.

A burst of color in my grey bathroom

 from Durham, NC– Verified Buyer

I got the red stool and it is just wonderful. The color is so deep and luminous, it reminds me of a candy apple, cheering me up every morning. The stool is decorative as well as functional. I keep my shampoo bottles on it. I love this little stool and I highly recommend it.

It's very durable and modern-perfect for our bath. I thought it would have been a little heavier bu it's great for our purposes.

Super well-made stool!

 from Glen Mills, PA, USA

I've only recently begun expressing an interest in furniture design and decided to purchase a Kartell product to test the waters on the quality. I was able to purchase the Ghost stool on sale (sweet!). The quality is definitely there, and I plan to purchase a Ghost chair soon (soon as they are on sale...). I felt the price was a bit steep for a small item like this, but was surprised to find two in the package when it arrived. Either the website is not clear on this, or I received two for the price of one. Who knows? There is a tendency to only offer Kartell products in pairs, which has deterred me from buying. Shipping exceeded a month.

Love the Kartells...

 from Boston, MA

This little stool is just as great as everything in the Kartell Ghost collection; it's strong, sturdy, and of course the design is fab. It also works well as an occasional step stool for my dressing room (I'm on the smaller side so supporting my weight isn't a problem). My only complaint is that the white is more of a milk-white rather than an all-color-removed-brite-as-all-get-out white. I got over that though, and we're good friends now.
