This hand carved stool, looks nice online but I was not satisfied with the size. I coulndt fit both of my feet on it and I did not want to use it as a foot swtool but that is what it is. The craftmanship is nice but its the size of a barbie van.
This stool is very SMALL. There is no untiy as it would be lucky to seat one. I might have liked it better had the hand carved symbols on it not looked like someone carved their initials on a tree. The design of the legs on this stool are awesome with the way they wrap around each other. Mostly because of the size & the poor carving decorations i must give this item a low rating. The assembly was easy, just take it out of the box and hide it behind a plant in the corner. Sorry Mom, i promise next christmas i will not get you an eye sore!
We ordered this item so we could use it as a conversation piece, rather than a practical item. It arrived quickly (thanks O!). The first thing we noticed is that it is very lightweight, which doesn't really make any difference. It is on the small side, but exactly what you would expect a footstool to be. You can actually see the marks from where they used tools to shape the stool, and it is really quite unique. It does not, however, look like the picture listed *it does look similar though*, but since it is handmade, they warn you that every stool looks different. We are very happy with this item and would buy something like this again.
I love my hand-carved Ashanti Unity Stool. It has a natural look and it seems very well made. It was easy to order and I received within a few days. This was my first time ordering w/ Overstock. It wasn't cheap but because included the shipping I didn/t mind paying the price
This stool is very attractive, but I should have read the reviews before ordering it. It is so small there is not much you can do with it., even though the size is, I think authentic. Overstock did have the correct dimensions in their ad, but I guess the assumption that a stool would be tall enough to sit on overrode the careful analysis of the description. I kept it since shipping it back would be almost as much as it cost, and it is lovely--now to find a place to put it.
Unfortunatley, we didn't use this in our show, but it was a great option. Terrific design and reasonable price.
