Straight from an Indian marketplace – or so it looks…

Don’t the brilliant colors in this hand-woven stool make you think of a crowded marketplace in India, or an ornate sari? There’s a reason for that.

Manufactured in India, this unique piece consists of recycled fabrics woven over a solid mango wood frame.

The traditional turned legs tone down the vibrant pinks, purples and golds. At 19 inches high and 22 inches wide, you can use it as a foot rest, extra seating, or to pull it up to a tea party.

$89.95. Pier 1 Imports, 2264 Black Rock Turnpike, Fairfield,  (203) 336-1327, or 1460 Post Road East, Westport. (203) 255-3413.
