Story Behind the Art: Thailand's Khun Pacume speaks of her craft: 'I learned to carve during the rice seasons, while we waited for harvest, from my father who learned from his father. Our family works together with cousins as time allows and there are jobs to carve. I create some of my own designs but most work is by customer design or modifications of my original designs. Working with wood is peaceful and allows our family to earn extra money between seasons.'

Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
We bought this to go next to a very low slinging chaise which features chrome and black and white accents. Our goal was to inject a little handcrafted wood accent table in an otherwise very modern and contemporary living room. We saw it on many other online retail sites for 2-3 times more. It's the perfect accent piece for us. But pay attention to the width and height you need because although it's just right for us we were seeking a very short end table and rejected many others which would have been too high next to our chaise.
I absolutely love my Twist Stools. They are smaller than I expected (I'm glad I ordered two, though I could probably use a third); nevertheless, they are gorgeous, well-made, and constantly drawing compliments from friends. I use them as seats, foot stools, and, together, as an alternative to a coffee table in my living room. They are so multi-functional! Definitely a good buy.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent quality
How accurate was the sizing? Slightly smaller than I expected
The description indicates that because it is a natural wood product, some cracks may occur during drying. I was prepared for small cracks and little knot holes. I got two of these. The cracks on one were as wide as 3/4" in places and ran from one corner through the middle and part way to the opposite corner. The other was also severly cracked at both ends with a crack wide enough to drop a AA battery down it.
While the picture shows shiny and polished looking wood on the top, the wood on these stools was not polished looking. It looked rough hewn.
I was very happy with Overstock.com's customer service's willingness to have these returned as defective, but when they offered to replace them, I had to turn them down. It wasn't just one piece that had problems. It was both.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Not even close.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very poor
It's definitely unusual and the wood is a nice addition to our decor. I realize they are expected to have some imperfections, but in my opinion, the splits in the one we received were a little more than should be the case for an item that cost so much. I'm still glad we bought it, but I wish it was in a little better shape since it's so showy.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Pretty good
That (200 pounds) sounds about right. The design could probably handle more, but it's actually more petite than you might think and someone over that size would overwhelm the seat and they would be very uncomfortable. Really, it makes a better side table than a stool - I say that because it's so thick near the upper and lower edges that it's hard to move it (there's nowhere to grab onto), so it's best if you can put it in one spot and leave it there.homeowner123123 on Apr 30, 2013
I would like to purchase this stool, however I see one picture shows it has (naturally) a crack. Is there anyway I could secure to receive one without a crack?
