We hadn’t heard of them two years ago and now we can’t imagine how we got by without them. Surprisingly versatile and chic, used as stools, stands or occasional tables. Old-school question: where in the garden should we put one? New-school reply: next to her soaking tub, piled high with bath salts, candles and, maybe, a soggy copy of Fifty Shades of Grey. No wood to splinter; plenty of style, in plenty of styles.
