Japanese Garden Stools 


Said to have been brought into the design world through a Buddhist tradition of utilizing tree stumps and large smooth rocks as seats in a garden, Japanese garden stools have been modernized in the sense that they can be styled indoors and out. Due to the often glazed and intricate patterns and designs on Asian garden stools, they can fit seamlessly in any living space or patio to introduce fresh colors and textures.
