Stools can make a stylish and practical addition to your living space. The extra seating during big parties can function as extra end tables for holding beverages, books, and other essentials. When they're not being used, stow them under an open-base console tables, where they'll sit pretty and be simple to reach. Pull up a bold garden stool near a cozy corner or window seat and use it as a surface for a book or a hot beverage. For extra panache, blend in printed cushions, rugs, and accessories at a similar colour as the stool, which will turn the space into a personal sanctuary.
