The Garden Stool

Garden stools have a way of popping up quite frequently these days in just about every designers work, leaving many wondering where did this quaint little piece come from?
The drum-shaped design originated in China between 960-1279 under the Song Dynasty.  They were typically made of glazed stone or porcelain and actually used in gardens.  Today they are made out of just about anything and placed almost everywhere indoors!
