Just went to the link provided by lynnag (above) to a well-illustrated page concerning Lincoln's final hours in the Petersen House across from Ford's Theatre, and the liberties taken in later artistic depictions of the scene. I'm sure many of the commenters would likewise enjoy it, even if they have visited the historic site in person.

Use it as a table, a seat, a display space, a footrest ... and indoors or out. Meet the ever-versatile Chinese garden stool Full Story

I don't think they are practical at all, actually. As side table they are too small to fit a drink if there is anything else on them and as a stool they are VERY uncomfortable. On a patio they are breakable....I could go on but I think garden stools are a terrible fad. Their only redeeming quality is that they add color when you need it.

I have five of them -- both inside and outside. None of them even have a chip in the glaze. I think I'd be hard pressed to break one without tossing it off the second floor balcony.

When used as a seat, they're designed to be used with a woven straw cushion -- but any cushion would do.

I like them because I don't have the room for big side tables in most places.

It's kind of hard to think of something popular for hundreds (maybe thousands) of years as a fad!
