I'm looking for a....vanity stool!

Everyone now and then I have a client that needs something more than just a couch or a paint color.   There is a weird piece of furniture that has thrown them off.  The piece isn’t exactly common and there are definitely some bad examples of there.  The piece of furniture I'm referring to is actually a vanity seat or vanity stool. 

Many of us have a vanity.  It might be built in or a piece of furniture.  We spend much time sitting in that seat applying makeup and preparing for the day.

A friend of mine has just that…a built in part of her bathroom cabinetry that needs a little attention.  What could a find to fit the space?  Of course…there is everything from the high end trade type places (Pieces and World-Away) all the way to your every day IKEA and Pottery Barn. 

How do you get started?  Where should you go?  What do you search for ? Well, you could go ahead and google vanity seat or vanity stool, but that's not going to get you very far.  Keep your options open and creative.  Consider ottomans, stools, benchs and footstools. Here are some choices I came up with….
Target $149

Horchow $699

CB2 $129

JCPenney $300, now on sale for $159.99

Ballard Designs Courbe Ottoman $149

Pottery Barn Lewis Cube $199
IKEA  $19.99

The famous "x-stool"  from Pieces $595
From Williams-Sonoma Home $795

Jan Showers Collection

Belle Meade Signature  $539

Plexi-Craft Classic $403

Mid-century Modern Knoll Planter $1431

So...what are you sitting on as you prepare for that Christmas party?  I hope its something wonderful!  

Until next week,
