As homes become more streamlined and focused on convertible furniture, products like the 'Chaool' are likely to see an expansion. Designed by Georgia-based designer Joshua Dycus, the 'Chaool' is, as one might guess from the name, one part chair and one part stool
A simple to use hinge system allows the 'Chaool' to convert from a comfortable chair into a step stool that features two steps. The 'Chaool' is inspired by traditional Japanese seating and woodworking processes to create a product that's of the utmost quality with small living spaces in mind.

Convertible furniture like the 'Chaool' shows significant promise in this sector for being able to offer a dual-purpose product for inhabitants.
