Most of us probably will not own a Charlotte Perriand stool in this lifetime; as shown in this minimalist house in the Alps by architects AFGH.

Above: Charlotte Perriand designed her classic—and deceptively sophisticated—stool in 1955.

Above: The Ikea PS Karljohan Side Table; designed by Christian Hallerod and available in birch or pine, could function as a stand-in; $59.99 at Ikea.
