Must Have Item: Garden Stool

One piece of furniture I could use in any and every room is a ceramic garden stool.  You’ll find one in almost every designers portfolio… why? Because they’re the perfect little solution… extra seating, a side table, easily moveable from room to room, a gorgeous piece of eye candy… need I say more? Ok, well I will just in case….  The other fab thing about them is that they go outdoors as easily as indoors (or should that be the other way around considering they are called “garden” stools!), and they work with any style.  Actually I love that they bring texture and interest to a contemporary setting and a little pizzazz to a traditional one…

As a neutral person my favorites are the white and cream ones…

A little dose of color makes them pretty fun too!
