Story Behind the Art: Thai artisan Khun Pacume speaks of her work: '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

Ships Carbon Neutral* This item may display patches, due to the tools used in its creation. Any knotholes, cracks, natural inclusions or visible marks are results from the natural wood. This does not compromise the structural integrity of the piece, but is part of its design.
I love the stool/bedside/couch side table... it is rich looking.. one of a kind and uniqui.. It does have some cracks yet that is part of its charm....it is not perfect it is a gorgeous piece of carved wood made by human hands not spit out by a machine... just gorgeous....
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? pretty much.. wood always changes with the grain.. it is gorgeous and uniquie
The Walnut twist stool, which I'm using as a side table, has wonderful flows of dark and light wood, and depending on how its viewed, gives different pleasing visual presentations. That said, my first thought out of the box was to return it, as there were deep, gaping cracks 4 and 5 inches long running across the bottom and from the top down the side. I was prepared to see some small cracks in the wood, but this was beyond "natural" and into "defective".
I experimented with turning the large cracked top to the bottom and facing the worst lower side offender towards the chair where I wanted to position it, and decided that what now could be viewed wasn't so bad that it outweighed the overall beauty of the piece.
As some of the other reviewers have said, this wood has natural cracks in it. If that bothers you, pick another product! I just put the end with the largest crack on the bottom. I also love the oil rubbed finish. Be sure to take measurements of your space and compare them to the size listed as there are many similar stools/tables of varying heights offered. I had a small space that needed an end table so someone could put down a drink or snack. This was a perfect fit for me. The style is unique and can fit in many types of decor including a contemporary house like mine.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. the finish is smooth, the piece is very solid. Surfaces are even.
Received this and it is exactly as pictured. I love it and it fits in perfectly for what I need....a little "table" that may be used as extra seating at the dining table but I bet the grandkids will fight over who gets to sit on it!
It is a nice stool. The original picture had two stools in it and I purchased it thinking there was two and there was only one. It is expensive without a coupon I found lower prices at other sites and saw it at a discount well known home decorating store for less. I had a coupon so it was more reasonable. I was upset and felt misled as did other people in reviews. Not cool overstock but the stool is a heavy one and good quality.

I purchased two of these beautiful tables a few months ago. I love them so much. What is the proper way to maintain or clean them? Thank you.jlo33 on Aug 22, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Use a soft nonabrasive cloth with a little soapy water to clean up any spills, then apply furniture polish or natural wood oil with a clean soft nonabrasive cloth.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 24, 2012
