Just what I have been looking for! A bit heavy -- YEA! It won't tip over easily like my other one did. VERY easy to put together. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the fact that it DOES rotate, and this was the deciding factor for me! Makes reaching things on the other side of the tree soooo much easier. Plus, it looks really nice and I believe will look nice with just about any decor! If I ever get tired of the black finish, I'm sure it will be very easy to spray paint any color or finish. Now the coats and purses, packs, etc are in easy reach and don't look like a mess on the couch!
The coat tree was easy to put together. I was sorry I didn't buy two of them. I brought it to work and the compliments continue to come. Everyone ask where I purchased the coat tree, and I tell them overstock.com. I would recommend this metal coat tree to those who want to add some vintage to their home or office. It is strudy when coats, umbrellas, and pocketbooks hang on it. I probably will purchase another one in the very near future.
We've had this hall tree for a few years now. It's very nice looking, but honestly I haven't actually seen it in a while because it's under so many coats! It does tip over easily when heavy with coats...that's not a huge problem for us because we have it in a corner, but in a walkway that might get annoying. Overall it's functional and beautiful.
I would not recommend this unless you are not concerned about the stability of the rack. I thought it was fairly priced when I saw it online, but when I received the actual product, felt I got a bit cheated. The assemblage seems a bit inadequate and, for lack of a better word, cheap. I wanted something that was a bit sturdier. Not that this is going to tip over without some effort, but we have a 2-year old and a dog. We are cautious of what we hang on it, so that it doesn't increase the likelihood of tipping. We decided to keep it simply because the effort to ship it back wasn't worth it in this case.
Lokks great and I love the look. Mu husband loves it for his hats.

First of all... I would not say this is crafted of solid metal and steel, it is of metal TUBE construction. And connection at the top needs to be longer so there is more stability... leans a little.

easy to assemble; like that it rotates. antique bronze finish, matches other fixtures in my home very well. have out in the living room, no concerns about people looking at it up close as finish looks good. has held pretty heavy bags with no problems
this hall tree is made well, but it looks heavier in the pic than it actually. It has not fallen over, which I thought would be a problem, so I am happy with it. Now if only I can get the rest of my family to put their jackets on it instead of the chair in my family room.
Perhaps I put a bit too much stock in all the recent, glowing reviews of this coat stand that I expected too much. I was prepared for the rotating top half--a big thank you to reviewers who included this info since the item description fails to mention it--but not for how shoddily constructed the entire piece turned out to be. Because the base dimension of this stand works well in the space I intended, compared to a few similar models sold on the site, I do not plan to return it. But ultimately I am disappointed in the finish (dull, chips easily with just a fingernail scratch, cheap-looking) the sturdiness (holds a few lightweight items well, but skip the family parkas or heavy purses) and the overall value. It's been recommend to spot weld and spray paint the stand to make it more suitable and if you're prepared to do this, order with confidence. If you want an item to be perfect straight out of the box, you may be slightly disappointed. I know this kinds of coat tree sells for quite a bit more at brick and mortar stores, but I am grateful the hubby is handy because this piece needs some work. If it looked beautiful I could handle some of the less than practical features, but it doesn't succeed at either level.
I read the reviews before I bought, and this tree is just as good as they say. We bought a house with an "open" design, so no hall closet, and our hats and coats ended up on chairs, on beds, etc. I needed something that wouldn't tip over when loaded with heavy coats, and this doesn't! There are basically just two parts to it, so easy to assemble, and it fits any decor. It's durable, attractive, and the top part rotates for easy access to anything hung on it. Buy it!
