Our ceilings are pretty high, which can be both a blessing and a curse. Yes, I love the drama and open feel, but simple things like changing a lightbulb can be a pain without a pretty tall step ladder. So when I spotted the STEP ladder at huset shop, I immediately fell in love. Produced by Design House Stockholm and designed by Karl Malmvall, this step stool is designed to hang on the wall, displayed proudly rather than secreted away in a closet. While I absolutely adore the minimal design, wood frame, and bold red color, the price — a steep $298, is a no-go for me. I wonder how many coats of red spray paint it’ll take to get a similar effect on my current Skinny Mini? — Megan B.
