It happens a lot. When I see a fabulous piece of furniture or accessory in a magazine or a stylish friend’s house, it often hails from a Paris flea market. Les Puces (“the fleas”) is the most famous, and I’ve been only once, but that was enough to steal my heart--and make it beat really, really fast. One treasure I brought home was a dainty, velvet-topped stool that would be right at home in front of an antique vanity.
Our version, the Celeste Stool, has a deeply carved birch apron and four sturdy legs topped by a muted seafoam-green velvet seat.
Dimensions: 28 x 28 x 22 in inches. Material: Birch. Imported. Handling Fee is $75.
