Four Ways to Style a Stool

Though Liliputian in size, stools possess tons of design versatility. They come in countless colors and styles to suit just about any space. Not to mention they’re lightweight and small enough to move around at a moment’s notice – great for those us who like to rearrange on a whim!

We have a few metallic versions under $90 (here, herehere, here and here) and figured we’d show you how to make the most of these little guys. Read on for four ways to style ’em!

1. As an alternative to a coffee table: Side by side, stools are a funky alternative to the traditional coffee table. If you’re short on space, or tend not to accessorize your coffee tables with books or other accents, stools are a great way of creating a unique focal point in a living room.

2. As an eye-catching end table: Instead of a regular ol’ end table, try using a stool as a perch for a small lamp or decorative accent. They’re unexpected and in funky colors, they can add just the right pop of color or shine.

3. As in-a-pinch seating: We love the idea of stowing a couple of stools under a console as a decorative element. Not only do they look incredibly chic, but they’re poised and ready to become occasional seating should guests drop by.

4. In the shower: Instead of cluttering your countertops, keep bath essentials dry on a handy stool placed outside a tub or shower. Just make sure you choose a glazed ceramic option as they stand up better to warmer, more humid environments.

In the Clear

They may be see-through, but these “ghost chairs” certainly don’t go unnoticed. Practically designed, these chairs are transparent and lightweight, not to mention incredibly durable. Even better, they come in a variety of tempting iterations from traditional to contemporary. Ultra-modern styles look sleek and futuristic, preventing décor from looking too one-dimensional. Then there are the traditional interpretations – Louis chairs that represent the intersection of Baroque and modern design, a blend that’s intriguing, versatile, and incredibly stylish.

|Contemporary silhouettes are easily stowed, creating the illusion of more space|

|Tinted versions add a subtle pop of color|

|These chairs enhance the airy, open quality of this kitchen and keep it looking modern |

|Clear chairs feel less obtrusive in smaller, more compact spaces like a breakfast nook |

Love what you see? Would you give these see-through styles a spin in your own home?

Design Inspiration: Sunburst Salon

|A gallery of mirrors is a glam alternative to traditional wall art|

If you’re not big on art, try grouping several mirrors together on a bare wall salon style. The more ornate or detailed the frame, the bigger the statement. Don’t be afraid to mix materials as well as sizes and shapes – we love the way a sunburst looks with traditional round frames. Recreate the look with our chic and affordable selection of  sunburst wall mirrors from our White x White event. At $45 and under, you could snatch up a whole set!

Trend We Love: Ikat

Ikat is everywhere and frankly, we couldn’t be more thrilled. Known for its vibrant colors and hazy pattern, ikat fabrics employ a centuries old resist dyeing technique that has a long, multi-cultured history with origins in Asia, South America and Central America. The name, “ikat,” is derived from the Indonesian word, “mengikat,” meaning “to bind,” and that is exactly what goes into the arduous process of producing one of the three types of ikat – warp ikat, weft ikat and double ikat.

|Proof that ikat plays well with other patterns|

To create warp ikat, weavers dye the threads that are affixed to the loom (the warp threads), while to make weft ikat, weavers dye the thread that is woven in and out of the threads in the loom (the weft threads). Double ikat entails dyeing both the warp and weft threads and is the most highly prized of the three for the incredible amount of skill it takes to create the intricate patterns.

Stroll on over to our Eclectic Avenue event to see this funky textile in action!
