Idea of the Week: Hostess Stools
A Few Well-Placed Stools Offer Quick Seats When Entertaining Guests
We'd never heard of this phrase before, but after seeing a few in the formal dining room of Meredith Heron's beautiful Toronto renovation, our interest was piqued. So what is a "hostess stool," anyway?
These spare seats offer a place for the host to perch for a moment before alighting back to the kitchen, refilling drinks or changing the music. As Heron describes it, "When entertaining, the host rarely sits, but when they do they can pull up one of these little stools for a quick chat."
