My apartment is really tiny, so every piece of furniture I have needs to be super functional and pretty (it's a studio, so you can see EVERYTHING at once). I purchased two of these chairs in blue, and they are fantastic! I saw one in the Anthro store, tested it out (surprisingly comfy for a metal chair), and took it home on the Metro. Even though I accidentally knocked it twice while carrying it (once on a low concrete wall, once on the Metro escalator), it remained unscratched/unharmed. I then bought a second one online.
I'm using these as dining chairs or as extra seating for guests, but I could definitely see using one as a nightstand or side table. These chairs are so special and fun without being too heavy or taking up too much space!
