I ordered this coat/umbrella rack for my husband's office reception area. Assembly was simple. The base is weighted nicely so it shouldn't tip. It looks very nice in his contemporary setting. Should hold up well when the temperatures drop and rain begins. I especially like that it includes storage for both coats AND umbrellas. No need for two separate items. The rack is on carpet, so the carpet had to be protected from rain off of umbrellas. Very happy with this purchase!
I love this coat rack. sturdy doesn't fall over. I actually use it in the bedroom to store dress that need to be washed because I don't want to put then in the hamper nor back in the closet so I hang until I have enough to make a wash load.
The coat rack is just what we needed in the corner. It was very easy to put together, I think we spent 10 minutes tops! It is sturdy and weighted on the bottom. It held all the coats of our volunteer staff and they were all highly complimentary of it!
