I love the pop arty fun that comes along with oversized everyday objects, so I went a little cuckoo when I read in Garden Design about these oh so lovely spool stools, designed by the two brothers Francesco and Marco Gillia. The brothers, originally from Italy, relocated to Montana and have set up a furniture studio there where, among other things, they craft these beautiful hand turned cedar stools and stain them in every color of the sherbetty rainbow.

I am not quite sure why this 23 second clip is on YouTube but you can see the pretty colors the seats come in on the video:

That bobbin hole in the center functions to draw water away from the tops of the stools, FYI.
