They are not bar or counter mates. They are their pocket-sized relative … perfect low profile seating forms and in some cases table surfaces. They are accent items for just about any room. They have been a common thread by designers of wide-ranging international origin. They are instantaneous friends to young children given their stature. They are task partners for low or tight spaces. They are functional, architectural and at times whimsical. Given their apparent multiple personalities consider one of these pint sized additions. Once again a good source for starters is Bonluxat.
