Holy cow: what is UP with stools right now?! From practical to useless to cute to downright kooky…there are a lot of stools out there. Choose wisely.
(Brief public service announcement: You know about the 3 heights of stools and chairs, right? “Table height,” “counter height,” and “bar height.” So if you’re buying a stool for practical reasons, please pay attention to those labels. Thank you. Now back to your irregularly scheduled blog post.)
Some mainstream retailers have cool stools.
If you’re buying a stool for fun, say, as additional seating in your living room (they’re perfect in pairs, especially in front of a fireplace), or as a stool next to your beautiful tub to hold a towel and a glass of wine…
…then you can — and should — have some fun.
Don’t forget that as long as the seat/top is flat and not deeply curved, stools can serve as handy drinks tables. Don’t you think you need one of these? I’m totally eyeing the side of our family room sofa as I’m writing this. Don’t tell John.
