I purchased this stool for my young son as it appeared whimsical as well as useful. It's very lightweight and unstable.

versatile, adorable, perfect size

By: M. R., Homeowner (Philadelphia, PA )

The Bubu stool can be used for many things - as a side table, a sitting stool, a planter, an ice bucket for large parties...and it's the cutest object as well. It's perfect for both indoor and outdoor spaces, and the size is great - neither too big nor too small. The colors are fantastic, and you can get them in either translucent style or solid. I got a number of them in different colors, and use them on my outdoor terrace as both planters and for side tables or just a place to put my feet up. I adore the Bubu stool, and if I had more space, I would surely get more.

The colors are charming. Works great as a dirty clothes hamper. So useful for such a playful piece.

It's lightweight and functional with a removable top for storage. Can be used for many purposes other than sitting. I love it's contemporary flair!
