This project was made to improve storage and efficiency in seating. The design features a leather pouch for storage that can be buttoned to any of the 3 sides depending on the orientation of the seat. The armrest features storage for a phone, a drink or a book and can orientated and used as a padded backrest when need. This makes the stool usable in a number of scenarios and a versatile piece of seating for any home.
