Flip through the pages on any decorating magazine and you are likely to find colorful garden stools.

Garden stools were once considered only for use in the garden, but more recently they have come indoors and they are not only pretty but functional. 
They can be used all around the house and although probably not very comfortable to sit on for a long period of time, they can even be extra seating in a pinch, such as at the end of a bed.

They work well in either a modern or traditional space.

Come in many designs, shapes, color and sizes…  And can be picked up for as low as $40 in places like HomeGoods, Ballard Designs and Pier One.
They are perfect in a foyer where they can be used for additional seating.

And my favorite use for them.. End tables!

You can even use them in the bathroom next to the tub!

They have really grown on me and I plan on picking up one or two next time I’m at HomeGoods!
What do you think of this trend? Do you find them useful or impractical?
