Small Space Solutions: Storage in a Stool

Small spaces and dual-purpose furniture go together — and one such furniture piece is the storage stool. For storage and a splash of color, there's the Candy storage pouff from Calligaris; many different color combinations are offered. You can buy it here, here and here. [via From Europe]

Great finds! Those bucket stools are really unusual.

What finds! I love the Stoll, ikat, and Neiman Marcus pieces. My parents had a similar piece, good as a footstool, table, and storage unit when I was born in the 50's and my mother still uses it. It was metal with a plastic covering. They referred to it as "the hassock". I enjoyed taking off the top and finding storage space. I'm glad they're popular again, just under a different name.

The English Organizer: Glad you like them!

Lee, some people still call them hassocks - I just totally forgot to search on that term. And when I did, I found something cool I missed the first time around. You'll see it in my next post.
