"Es ist ein Stuhl."

Translation:It is a chair.

Can it not be a stool?


I think that would correspond with "der Hocker"? - which is a small thing without a back, possibly with only three legs for milking cows; and those high things at a bar.

A Stuhl is a proper, fully-sized chair, with a back, e.g. for a dining table; and without too much of an arm rest and cushioning (because then it would be "der Sessel").
