I am always on the hunt for a great buy. Lately I am looking out for yet another Chinese garden stool....we have six inside our home! I am a firm believer you can't have too many! Garden stools are the "superhero" of interior design...they have endless possibilities and with their short stature can be tucked into any space. Garden stools come in a variety of hues, styles and textures, making it one of the most versatile pieces I know of. Take a look at what I mean:

outdoor use it has been welcomed in any
interior space as well.

Notice that they are placed slightly to the left, not
centered with the sofa.
These copper colored stools act as a bench at the
foot of this master bedroom. The metallic color
adds sparkle to the room.
This entry hall would be too crowded with
two chairs and too sparse with only the
table. Two black stools do the trick!
Although this is a catalogue picture one can see
how silver stools can add some bling to any room!
