CHINOISERIE: THE GARDEN STOOL

Ever wonder the history of the oh so popular garden stool that is showing up today in all types of interiors.  I grabbed this quick history lesson from one of my favorite sites:  Circa Who.
 
"The garden seat, or garden stool, first appeared in elite Chinese gardens as early as the Sung Dynasty (960-1279).

Garden seats can be used as either a table or seating indoors and outdoors. Styles of garden seats range from elaborately ornate to beautifully simple and are usually made of porcelain, ceramic, terracotta, or wood. Garden seats are a stylish way to add color, texture, or a touch of Chinoiserie. "
 
 
I love the garden stool especially the elephants.  I have to admit I'm becoming a little obsessed with them.  I currently have two elephants and one blue and white drum in stock.  If you are interested let me know.  I've taken Gogo Studio down for now while I get new inventory loaded.
