as i mentioned in my previous post, we started with only two dining chairs. we may purchase at least one more in the future, but for now, i decided to purchase a set of stools that would be useful for guests. i wanted chairs that could be kept out in the open, but still small enough to prevent cluttering our space.
i immediately thought of the three legged, stackable alvar aalto stool:
but at $260 a stool, there was absolutely no way i could even consider buying one, let alone four.
my second thought was the ikea frosta stool, but unfortunately for me, it turns out they sell it at pretty much every ikea in the world except the u.s. bummer.
amazon ended up saving the day for me (hooray for amazon), and i was able to buy a set of four for about $75.
i tucked two in the corner underneath the kitchen counter. another went to the bedroom, and the last by our shoe bins.
totally space efficient and functional. they may not be the best quality, but they are perfect for our current needs.
