Tiki Stool

Sit! Sit! Tipped off to the Tiki Stool (because it’s kid’s month), we went to check it out and were a little skeptical until we saw this and knew someone had read our mind:

What’s so cool about a stool? And why are they all over the design mags these days? It takes having one around the house to appreciate a stool’s uncanny knack for becoming the furniture Johnny-on-the-spot.

Okay. It doesn’t look like much, but it becomes one of those things that you use all the time. If you have kids, wierd things happen. Even the most god awful object can grow to become an icon of absolute necessity. And this (despite more plastic) is even cute. Available in 5 colors at Offi and at Target for $49. (Thanks, Christy!)
