You may not be blessed with the domestic space to expand your collection of home furnishings, but the introduction of this Arm Rest by Peter Marigold can transform the minimal seating you have more cozy reposes.

Photographs by Lucas Hardonk capture the quirky stand-alone ledge, inspired by the design of much shorter separate armrests found in Japanese countryside homes. To allow the concept suit the Western sitter, the seat accessory has been integrated with a built-in magazine holder.

It's funny to see a lone forearm support mounted on task chair wheels with a basket braced onto its side, but there's an undoubtedly practical quality to this eccentric stool-side piece. Arm Rest by Peter Marigold is handy as a rolling folder alone, but introduces such versatility into a room.
