I love it when you find something that is not labeled as "modern" but would look great in any design lovers home. That way you manage to escape the typical huge price mark up on the item just because it's modern. Point in case, the Cramer Scooter stool. Personally I think it is a fantastic looking stool, and the fact that it's designed to be used in garages and shops, and it includes a 10 year warranty means that the build quality is probably pretty good. The everyday price for this beauty is a reasonable $60 from your local Sears. It's available in red or silver.
