Aren't these pronouns just object pronouns?
This question relates to:French lesson "Moi, toi, lui, elle = me, you, him, her (stress pronouns)"

While most stress pronouns are similar to object pronouns, there's one big difference: the indirect object pronoun lui is both masculine and feminine, while for stress pronouns, there is a separate feminine form: elle.

There are different sets of pronouns in French . Fortunately the 'nous' and 'vous' pronouns tend to remain the same in all of them!
These stress pronouns are the ones which come after prepositions too , so I find that a good way to learn them is after the 'chez' ( at the home of) .
Chez moi, chez toi, chez elle, chez lui, chez nous, chez vous, chez eux, chez elles.
Hope this helps!

Hi Laura, yes, I see that these are a separate set of pronouns from the Direct Object and Indirect Object sets. My question was more based on the usage; basically, when I would use these vs using the object pronouns. I think I've gotten them straight now, to some extent. :)
Thanks! I see that they are a different set from the object pronouns - I was curious more so about the usage; in other words, when to use these vs when to use object pronouns. But your explanation about the prepositions in very helpful in explaining the difference.
