Even full-grown people need a little boost sometimes. If you've got high shelves in your closet or tall bookcases around the house, use a child-size chair to give you the little lift you need. They're more charming than a regular old step stool, and they'll double as seating for the little tykes you know. Plus, small versions of your favorite chairs, like Philippe Starck's Lou Lou Ghost Chair, are much more affordable than their big kid counterparts.
