Inspiration: 9 Ways to Use a Garden Stool

Originally designed to be stripped down, functional, hardworking seats, Chinese garden stools fit virtually every purpose nowadays, from serving as accent tables to decorating your patio with a nice exotic or ethnic touch. These relatively lightweight furniture pieces can easily be moved from place to create the ultimate decor. Here are 9 ways to make your interiors or exteriors even more charming and comfortable.

1. Use a bright colored stool to make an accent table. Try to pair its color with another matching decor item like cushions, table clothe or outdoor rug.

2. Make a small coffee table that blend in the decor, adding texture and depth.

3. Use a combo to make a bigger coffee table. Bonus: pair the color with cushions!

4. Use contemporary color schemes to add freshness. Here we have turquoise and chocolate.

5. Don’t hesitate to multiply, more of the same items creates a statement!

6. The nails decorations are inherited from Chinese tradition, these are the perfect pattern for a colonial decor. And still matching a color accent ;)

7. Play with materials: here we have two lovely wooden stools that compliment a glass and metal table.

8. Light colors and floral patterns offer a more romantic and relaxing alternative.

9. Use garden stools to make a compound coffee table.
