The Gardener's Tool Seat is a complete package of portable seating and tool storage. The stool, made of steel and nylon, can be used with the tool bag underneath, or the tool bag can be separated from it via hook-and-loop fasteners. It comes in hunter green and kelly green, sold by UncommonGoods.
For this guest bathroom, the homeowners wanted a space that would be friendly, have good storage and strike a coastal, casual vibe.

A vintage green stool and blue-and-white striped dhurrie rug provide cheery pops of color.
For a nightstand in this teen girl's room, designers used a Parsons table in between the two twin beds. The table's height allowed for things to fit underneath: a ceramic garden stool and a basket for extra storage.
This space was all about finding storage solutions for a couple moving into a small space. Two sheepskin stools kept beneath the console table provide extra seating for entertaining guests. The Lucite table helps to visually expand without overwhelming the space.
Part of making a small or tiny space work is keeping rooms clutter-free. Ample cabinet and closet space in this Movable Roots tiny home does the trick. In lieu of a table, a small half circle countertop for a few stools offers space for a quick bite, but plenty of extra room in the living area means guests can be accommodated for larger meals.
This historic kitchen's original configuration was tricky because it didn't have much storage or room for modern appliances. New cabinetry and clean stucco arches protect the Mediterranean aesthetic and fit around a stainless steel refrigerator. A kitchen island answers the more storage call.
A long storage table turns this awkward wall into a functional space to store books, wine bottles and tabletop accessories. A bar stool fits under the unit to create a makeshift desk, and colorful art and a wooden sculpture hang above the table to add interest to the mostly neutral space.
Designer Genevieve Gorder converted an outdated bathroom into a spacious and modern bathroom for her master suite on HGTV's "Genevieve's Renovation." A teak stool with a convenient storage shelf provides a place for shower necessities.
This modern kitchen has a distinct mid-century vibe, with dark brown cabinetry that extends to the ceiling for maximum storage and throwback barstools covered in a burnt-orange leather. A pot filler adds function above the cooktop.
Although the cabinets don't meet the ceiling, white walls and transom windows close the gap to prevent the kitchen from looking disjointed and blocky. A large kitchen island anchors the room, providing additional counter space, storage and an eat-in breakfast bar area. Modern wooden barstools bring in warmth and a natural element to offset all the white surfaces.
This simple traditional dining room is covered in natural light thanks to the large bay window and french door. A banquette offers plenty of seating, while storage stools function both as seating and storage.
The middle of this table custom made by cousins Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri opens and closes for storage and game pieces. Four wooden storage stools tuck beneath the table when not in use and open up to reveal extra storage.
