We're loving the campaign stool trend, but after drooling over the Serena & Lily cooper leather stool for weeks (while simultaneously gawking at the price, I mean $798??) we were super excited to stumble across this little gem c/o of Urban Outfitters. It's not quite as substantial as the cooper stool, but it's still that gorgeous tanned leather with VERY similar lines, and a total steal at $129!

trending: wicker & rattan seating

Also making a MAJOR comeback (see “crushing on credenzas”) is wicker and rattan seating. What began as a play on basket weaving in ancient Egypt circa 1341-1323 BC, wicker furniture eventually made it’s way to United States during the mid-19th century, when two American companies, Wakefield and Heywood (now Heywood-Wakefield), found themselves in fierce competition for the American wicker market. 

Given its airy, casual character, and association with traditional hand crafts, wicker continues to be a favorite from desert going bohemians to beach house owning traditionalists.
