The Staff
of Valet.

Coachella may be over, but there's
plenty of outdoor occasions this summer where a clever tripod chair could come in handy. Sure, you could sit on the ground. But where's the style or fun in that? Be a gentleman, and offer it to a lady. Originally based on an antique hunting field stool, the triangular seat looks like something Hemingway might've packed on an African safari and actually makes for a comfortable and ergonomic solution to sitting on a blanket. Built from solid wood, full-grain leather and brass hardware, the handsome piece will only get better with age as it patinas. And when we're not planning to cop a squat outdoors, we might bring it indoors and use it as a slim side table, housing magazines and the remote.
$65, at Design Within Reach
