This is one of those items that looks exactly the same in person as it does on the computer. The only issue we ran into is that all of the branches stick into a foam square that fits in the vase. Only problem is, when you push the branches into the block, the block goes deeper into the vase and you cant pull it up. So we solved this problem by stuffing newspaper/magazine pages into the vase first, so the block sat on top of it. It looks great in our living room, and was a great buy for the price! The white branches are fragile, so you have to be gentle when handling them. The "moss" that comes with it gets everywhere, so put something under your workspace. I would recommend this to a friend.
It took awhile, but my spouse and I finally came up with a decorating style that caters to (compromises?) both our tastes: "Modern Organic" We bought this vase because it fits our newly identified style. When assembled, it really does look like the picture and adds an earthy feel to the room, without looking "rustic". It has great proportion, height and color and is packed really well to avoid damage during shipping.
A few things to consider before buying:
1. Although it looks great, it requires quite a bit of assembly. It took me about 40 minutes to get it looking like the picture. The Mitsumata branches come in natural form and need to be shaped before being arranged in the vase. The instructions suggested soaking them in the tub for a few hours first, but I found that running hot water on the parts that need to bend works well. Just be gentle so you don't break them.
2. The vase is described as "black" but is not a true black. I liked the color shown in the picture and hoped it wasn't darker than that, and it's not. It's as pictured.
3. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the black branches that you fill in between the white branches. They're covered in glitter. I'm not a glitter kind of person. It isn't visible in the picture and probably would have kept me from buying. But it's subtle enough and doesn't bother me too much. I figure I can easily buy some less flamboyant branches at the craft store if the sparkle starts to catch my eye. But be forewarned and place some newspaper on the floor while you're putting this all together.
The item I received looks just like the picture shown. The instructions given to put this together were very detailed and I achieved the look that I was wanting. It looks great. It is unique and striking. Love it!
For the price, it would have been better if more branches were included. Some were broken off at the tops which resulted in loss of height. While I could have easily gone to Ikea or Michaels or Home Goods for this product, and might have saved some money, I'm still content with this product.
The container is beautiful, contemporary and perfect for the location I had selected in the house.
The branches were crushed and broken to the extent that I will have to replace them with something else. Very disappointed in that as the b/w combo was what I wanted.
I did not realize this was a diy design. The buds on the branches were all broke off. I actually thought one was a beetle. I am not very creative nor do I like to read instructions, this required both. Overall ok, but I would not buy again.
Beautiful vase with white branches although some of the branches were dark brown. The white branches are a bit delicate and one was broken, but you can't see it once assembled. You could easily buy different branches and use them to change things up. A bit pricey I think, but good purchase.
