The wonderful thing about stools is that they often take up less space than a chair -- a helpful feature when you have but a cramped apartment. The Bobbin Stool has a small circular footprint and no backrest, enabling it to be stacked on top of another and tucked away when it isn't needed.

Martin Björnson's piece of furniture does not get its stability from a solid core; in fact, the cylindrical object is hollow. Remove the round seat and you'll discover a convenient compartment to store cushions, blankets and other miscellaneous household items.

But what is oh-sew-cute about the Bobbin Stool is that it poses as a magnified version of a spool of thread. It's delightfully quirky and country and the second half of its name alludes to its concealed storage capabilities.
