Ode To A Garden Stool

The ceramic garden stool.

Stylish and functional, practical and inexpensive.
A style for every taste and decor.
Whether you choose a classic:




Or prefer to go with something more modern:






There is a garden stool to please every taste and style.

{We have five garden stools through out our home.}

 Indoors and out, as extra seating, as an end table,
in pairs as a cocktail table,
in almost any room in the house...
the garden stool gets it done!

It's multitasking furniture at its best!

And, speaking of multitasking...
Today, I'm not only posting over here,
but I am guest blogging over there:
FROM THE RIGHT BANK.


I hope you will join me over at Ally's blog, to find
out what I have to say about one of my favorite home decor trends!

AND....
Don't forget to enter the giveaway...
going on all this week!

  3. You and I must be on the same wavelength - I was just gathering ideas on a post on our favorite garden stools for later this month. We love them as accents and as furniture - they're not just for the garden any more!

  4. Right beside the tub- perfect! I used to be the buyer for a major destination garden center. After a long week in Atlanta- the garden stools started to arrive back at our showroom... I had purchased dozens~ all different-all gorgeous. I remember getting an eye-roll from the owner... and they were gone in a week. My turn for the eye-roll!

  15. I like how the little stool fills up a corner just perfectly. I also like to bring the outdoor in and put things in a spot one would normally not. Enjoy! xo

  36. Those are called garden stools? I never knew that. I definitely like the more modern ones.

    ReplyDelete
  37. These are like pillows for me - chinoiserie garden stools are insanely additive, colored like candy - and sadly, take up way more space. Lovely post on collected spaces at FTRB!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Love the cement ones from Wisteria... My grandma has about 10 garden stools in her house. LOVE.

    ReplyDelete
  39. i have one in teal, but those navy one are really hot . . . haven't seen any others like it. i really want those $20 white one everyone scooped up from big lots!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Darn it now I NEED my own! You have 5 gf?! Pass one over :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Garden stools are really versatile - my mom is still chiding me about talking her out of one a year ago. I have to agree - my advise wasn't good! Love your photo choices, too, Sue - nice work, as usual.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh I just love garden stools. They add such great pops of color and style

    ReplyDelete
  43. I've always loved these things. But what I really love in this post is the round hassock
    pushed under the contemporary table. Really pretty, very practical (which I am not BTW).
    Lovely post, cookie.

  44. Zhush this will shock you - I don't have one single garden stool. I love them...but not one. How is that possible?! I thought we were had completely parallel lives!!?!?!?! That's it. I'm getting some!

  45. I too think garden stools are great additions to any room. I love them and have them!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Is there anyone who doesn't love a garden stool... pray tell!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love them too, especially in a deep, rich colour like indigo. Homesense (Canadian equivalent of Homegoods) had some in different colours so must check and see if they are still there. Enjoyed your post at From the Left Bank.

  48. We are building a curbless shower in our bathroom and will be putting one stool in the shower instead of a built in bench thingy - so much more fun and interesting. White ceramic with hand painted cinnabar foo-dogs - lovely!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Thanks for your visit:) I love your header, everyone can use a little zush indeed! Nice photos, I especially like the one with brown and white, those are my favorite colors for furniture and home decorating. Great idea to put a garden stool inside!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I love this idea! My mother is great about mixing up indoor with out outdoor furnishings -- I think that comes from being in AZ. The pictures are stunning, I am gaga over the bath, simply stunning.

    ReplyDelete
  51. You have five garden stools?? I'm envious because I love them and there are so many beautiful ones out there! They are so practical too! I only have one currently but I can see myself getting to that point soon of having quite a few :)

  52. i know we're looking at garden stools but i can't help but LOVE the tuffted ottoman peaking out from the table in the 3rd to last pic.
