Variations on the Chinese garden stool

Categories: , ,

The Chinese garden stool is a low stool (only about 20" high) that typically is round on top, bulges out, and then tapers to the bottom. It is great as a home accessory, a side table, or even a place to sit. The one pictured above, from Oriental Furniture is a real example of chinoiserie, with a black lacquer finish and mother-of-pearl appliques.

Visit our photo album for modern takes on the Chinese garden stool, including stools by ceramicist Michael Jones, a tea house fountain from, and a steel "Penta" (5-sided) end table from Room & Board.
