I also noticed, on top of the stool, a rough patch that when tilted in the light shows that a small section on top was painted over and not reglazed so it is obvious and when you touch it, it feels rough. There were also a few indentations in the piece, not sure if these are damage or naturally occurring little 'bubbles' in the ceramic. These are not a deal breaker for me bc unless you get right up on it, you can't see them but still, if this is truly hand made, why do such a crappy spackle job - if an area is damaged, repaint AND reglaze it. I thought Safavieh was a cut above in terms of their products, guess not.
I was very disappointed when I received this product. When I first took it from the box, I was impressed with the design. Then I noticed the damage. In many areas it looked like the piece had been damaged and painted over. This may have been OK but they did not bother to reglaze the piece so the damaged areas were very obvious. There were at least 15-20 small areas of painted areas that had a different finish then the rest of the item. I really loved the design of the piece so I decided to return the damaged piece and have it replaced with another one, hoping I would be luckier the next time. Unfortunately the second piece was worse then the first. I really like the design and wish I could get a high-quality product, but I decided not to take another chance and just get a refund.
Very charming addition, perfectly sized for our small back deck off the master bedroom. A surprise bonus detail is that each delicate looking lattice-like opening on this garden stool is edged with a subtle golden glazing that adds depth and enhances the overall effect. I love it!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The cream color has a slightly grey undertone, not yellow, in some lights - not offensive tho
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. nicely crafted & glazed
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? very close
I have bought three of these! First I bought one for my friend for her birthday. She loved it Then I bought two for my daughter in law and son. They all couldn't decide where to put them ---there were so many options for such a cute stool. Inside or on the patio---either place works Very pleased with the packaging and prompt delivery.
Ordered two matching cream colored stools for the living room, and these are great. A little lighter weight than those I previously ordered, but very well priced! Garden stools make great accent pieces and extra seating, so I'd recommend these for any room. Lovely!
