I consider myself lucky to have purchased a house whose previous owner was likely a shoe-lover like me. At somewhere over 120 pairs of shoes, even I have not yet managed to completely fill up this legacy walk-through closet.
But, one glaring omission in my closet set-up is the lack of any proper stool or chair on which to sit when actually putting on the day’s shoes. Admittedly, it’s not exactly a crisis – but the daily hopping around on one foot while stuffing my other foot into a shoe would be a bit less comical and more dignified were I to correct this small wardrobe issue. And, while it need not be fancy – we are after all talking about a piece of furniture that is only briefly needed on any given day – something pretty or fun would be a nice way of starting out the day.
Luckily, today’s postal offerings included some intriguing shopping options in just this area (in the form of a new catalog ‘Design Toscano‘ – on whose mailing list I have apparently been recently added).
Included are a fair selection of salon chairs, tabourets (of which I have always been fond), and boudoir stools to fit a wide number different styles, tastes, and decors.
And, finally, the piece-de-kitschy-resistance:
How much fun is this last piece – definitely not for those who take themselves too seriously.
Which one would you choose – assuming you have a place to even put it?
