About two weeks ago, I became obsessed with Chinese ceramic garden stools and couldn't sleep thinking about them. So I made the decision to purchase not one but two of them (they were on sale) at a store called Indigo at Prince's Building in Hong Kong. I went to the store intent on buying just one, (the blue one above) but then the shop clerk showed me one in metallic silver and as I love silver and shiny surfaces, I had to buy it as well. I think they are the chicest, mutli-purpose little things. They also have that timeless appeal and can fit into all sorts of design styles as you will see from the photos I've gathered below.
I found these at the Lane Crawford home sale. Pretty but I wanted something more classic. Plus, even at the sale price, they were still three times what I paid for the ones I got.
I like how this still feels contemporary despite being so traditional. I think it's the use of colors.
