Floor poufs are a low-price way to add seating without investing in larger pieces of furniture, such as a sofa or chaise, say Gabriela Eisenhart and Holly Conlan with Wake + Loom Design. While you can find outdoor poufs for less than $50, you also can make your own fabric pouf ottoman in a pattern and palette that you prefer. Also, a garden stool is a versatile item that can serve as extra seating or a side table.
This teak stool can serve as a stylish and multi-functional gardening seat. You can use it when gardening, and then offer it as extra seating for guests. The teak will naturally weather to silver gray outside. It's sold by Gardener's Supply Co.
