The classic camp stool has been a staple of outdoor recreation for generations. But when paired with a patterned fabric seat, it becomes an asset, not for the fishing hole or playing-field sidelines, but for the living room or den. Here, it can serve at a moment's notice as additional, surprisingly comfortable seating. Then, when not in use, the lightweight, collapsible stool tucks into a corner or closet. Available on Etsy; $69.
