Story Behind the Art Khun Pacume learned to carve during the rice seasons while he waited for harvest from his father who learned from his father. His family works together with cousins as time allows and there are jobs to carve. He creates some of his own designs but most work is by customer commission or modifications of his original designs. Khun loves working with wood because it is peaceful and allows his family to earn extra money between seasons.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
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.
This item can be used as a stool, an artwork stand, an end table, a door stop, etc. It is extremely heavy so find your place and leave it there. The coloration is nothing like the photo. The ad pic shows a beautiful shiny grain. The actual stool has a dark bland finish. Hopefully theAsian finish will allow for polishing to a high lustre without excessive effort.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Unlike the photo, the color is a dreary flat finish. I hope to shine it up so the beauty will show.

We have had this side table for about 9 months and get so many compliments from guests on it's uniqueness. We have a small area for a table next to my furniture and this fits perfectly. I consider it a signature piece- art meets practicality. Recently though I noticed that there is a crack on the side of the table. It is a natural process for the wood to expand/contract but bummed me out. A friend who also loves a rustic look assured me that it doesn't look bad, but it looks more like something happened to it then the natural process. The return policy doesn't extend this long so I'd have to take a chance to send it back at my expense. Because I love it so much I'll keep it and hope the crack does not expand more.
I bought these as side tables for our waiting room and I am so happy with them. They are solid and very substantial pieces. I actually decided to use them as coffee tables in the center of the waiting room once I saw how cool they look. They add a unique and earthy flair to the space and we get daily comments on them. I highly recommend and I don't think you'll be disappointed. Just note that they are really heavy and I recommend you drag the box where you want them and then open.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. These are substantial pieces that actually weigh 75lbs a piece. They are bigger than they look in the pictures
I like this stool a lot and bought it because it was different. I only gave it a good rating because it is, really, just a twisted tree trunk (or so it appears) and I thought it was priced a little too high. But I used it as a short table for a plant, and I'm happy with it.
This is a truly unique purchase! I bought this to use as a table between two accent chairs in my brand new home. It works beautifully and I'm sure I'll receive lots of compliments! And yes, it is very heavy!
This is a very unique product; each every piece will be different. It is definitely a work of art as other reviewers have mentioned. Mine is exactly as expected. It makes for an excellent end table. I've used it as a base for 36 inch round coffee table. 36 inch glass is very stable on this base. The workmanship is so exact that the clear plastic cushions used on glass tables aren't even necessary. The height with 1/2 inch beveled glass is an inch or so above a traditional coffee table.
As most people mention, this is a really heavy object. Be prepared with a hand truck for the day of delivery. FedEx ground delivered and of course would not even put over the threshold. Expected that, so not a big deal. The packaging of the product is the first sign of the quality inside. The care and attention detail goes from the excellent packaging right to the product. It says a lot to me about how company feels about their product and how they package it. It's obvious that there is a lot of pride in the product.
The table was shipped on the day I ordered by FedEx ground. It arrived exactly 7 days from ordering.
Very, very pleased with this purchase!!

What is the finish like on this piece? Is it shiny or more of a natural finish? I'm looking for something in the middle. Also, I'm looking for a piece with both light and dark to help tie some different colors together. Do all stools vary in color like this one?bandoboots on Apr 11, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This is between natrual and shiney. Not all stools will vary in color, but it will be close to what it looks like in the photograph.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 13, 2012
