DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

The technical contents, structural characteristics, objectives and effects of the application are described in detail accompanying the following embodiments and attached drawings.

Refer to FIGS. 1 to 4. A storage stool is provided, comprising a stool stand 1 and a stool lid 2. The stool stand 1 comprises a bottom face 10 and a side wall 11 extending upward along the bottom face edge 10. The bottom face 10 and the side wall 11 together form a storage chamber with the upper end having an opening. The side wall 11 comprises an inner face layer 110, an outer surface layer 111 and an interlayer between the inner face layer 110 and the outer face layer 111. The interlayer has at least one layer made of a rigid material. The bottom of the stool stand 1 is detachably connected to a rotary base 3.

In the above embodiment, the stool stand 1 may be round, polygonal, square or rectangular, preferably round. The side wall 11 is sandwich structure, and the number of layers of the inner face layer 110 and the outer face layer 111 thereof may be one or above. The layers may be made of cloth, leather or artificial leather. The materials of each layer may be identical or different. The materials of the inner face layer 10 and the outer face layer 111 may be identical or different. The selection is specifically made upon design needs. The inner face layer 110 and the outer face layer 111 may be integrally connected at the top and bottom to form a closed space so as to clad the interlayer in the closed space. The number of the interlayer may be one or above; the materials of the interlayer may be identical or different, but at least one of the interlayer is made of the rigid material; and the rigid material is preferably hard paperboard to provide enough supporting strength and reduce the production cost. In this embodiment, the interlayer is preferably hard paperboard to simplify the structure and reduce the production cost, while the type and thickness of the hard paperboard are selected upon bearing needs.

In the above embodiment, the bottom face 10 is provided with a rigid plate 112 to ensure that the overall structure is more stable and not easy to deform. The shape of the rigid plate 112 is matched with the bottom of the storage chamber. The edge of the rigid plate 112 is connected to the bottom of the inner face layer 110, while the bottom of the inner face layer 110 is separated from the bottom face 10. Refer to FIG. 3 for dismantling and assembling. The rigid plate 112 is connected to the bottom of the inner face layer 110, so the inner face layer 110 of the side wall 11 turns outward when the rigid plate 112 is taken out, thereby bringing convenience to cleaning and keeping the storage chamber clean; and the inner face layer 110 covers on the chamber wall of the storage chamber formed on the interlayer again when the rigid plate 112 is slipped onto the bottom face 10 of the storage chamber. Wherein, the rigid plate 112 may also be a sandwich structure. The inner face layer and outer face layer thereof are made of a material identical to that of the inner face layer of the side wall 11, and then the rigid plate 112 is connected to the bottom of the inner face 110 by sewing. The interlayer may be paperboard, plastic or other rigid sheet.

In the above embodiment, to make the storage stool more comfortable, the stool lid 2 preferably adopts a sandwich structure of the surface layer may be made of the cloth, leather or artificial leather and the interlayer is preferably made of foam, in particular PU foam.

In the above embodiment, the lower surface of the stool lid 2 is convexly provided with a cover plate 20 matched with the opening of the storage chamber. The peripheries of the cover plate 20 are just pressed against the inner surface of the side wall 11 when the stool lid 2 is fastened on the stool stand 1, such that the stool lid 2 and the stool stand 1 do not move relatively and stably integrated; meanwhile, the edge of the stool lid 2 is not required to be turned to form a cover edge, thereby greatly reducing the production difficulty and improving the production efficiency.

In the above embodiment, the bottom of the stool stand 1 is detachably connected to a rotary base 2. The rotary base 3 is preferably made of plastic. The stool stand can rotate 360° in use such that users can change direction without adjusting their sitting posture. Thus, the storage stool is convenient.
