Stools are my favorite home accessory. They come in countless designs, materials, colors and sizes and they can be used for hundreds of things beyond sitting (most of you probably think this would make a much cuter end table than it would a seat!). My new must-have is the Axel Two-Tone Stool from CB2. It's made of solid beechwood and recycled leather. And, it holds up to 265 pounds! It will look great in my son's room holding a stack of books and a silver frame or two. When I tire of using it as a table, I'll find a new use for it and enjoy it all over again.
Make it yours for $129 at www.cb2.com (don't be afraid to buy two and pair them in a creative way around your house).
