I am constantly trying to figure out how to make the best use of space in my small condo. Months ago I relegated the table to storage b/c it was a magnet for clutter. That however, left me without a space on which to eat, make cards, and put my laptop and assorted papers for work, school or genealogy. I finally solved the dilemma with the purchase of this bar stool. I love it--it's just the right size and now my kitchen bar does double duty as food preparation site and work site. It also gives me an extra incentive to keep clutter off the bar.
