Lucia van der Post
Small stools that look good and don’t cost a fortune – the sort that come in handy for anything from providing spare emergency seating to being a useful repository for post, shopping bags and sunglasses – aren’t easy to find. Look no further than Marks & Spencer, which has a supremely elegant model for just £99.
Made from Indian sheesham wood, it has a distinctly ethnic air, as if it had been discovered in some wonderfully dusty emporium rather than a high-street store.
