The Chinese Garden Stool
The Chinese garden stool has become an icon of interior design, and for the lover of Chinoiserie, one cannot do better than a classic blue and white version. Its versatility is amazing-perfect as a decorative piece, a small side table next to a chair, for a stack of magazines, for a towel or robe perch in the bathroom, as a plant stand for an orchid, or in the garden, to name a few. This example from Overstock.com is very well-priced at $99.95 plus $2.95 shipping, as they are generally priced at $250.00 or more. I use Chinese garden stools inside my house and in my garden.
