Love them in bathrooms to stack towels onto.
Why not use them around the kitchen or dining table?
They fill in the void space under a hallway table and hide unsightly cords and outlets.
Or use them in the entryway to sit down on, while you put your shoes on.
Or have it for no reason at all other than that it's pretty to look at.
Or to replace the traditional side table beside a sofa or settee.
