  • stool/table

    I use it as a coffee table and foot stool in a small room in front of a love seat. It is very attractive and light enough to move easily. It fills a function for me.

  • Royal Stool

    I love this stool. I was looking for something to use in my foyer beside my basket of outdoor shoes. Instead, this is so attractive, it is now on the hearth, with a coordinating vase of foliage on the other side. It added a much needed pop of color to the living room. About the price: with the cost of wood, to find a solid piece of wood this size with the price I paid is amazing. A silly additional note: this was my first order from Overstock.com. Not only did it arrive faster than I thought possible, it was the best-packed item I have ever received. Whatever the packing material was, it made wonderful webs for Trunk or Treat.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? exactly!
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. The stool is heavy and very solid.
    • How accurate was the sizing? also exact
  • very pleased!

    I am so happy with this little stool. It is very attractive and functional. I bought a microfibre covered pillow that matches my chairs and it is very comfortable as a foot rest. My guests always comment on how unique it is and want to know where I purchased it. Might get another one.

  • Just what I expected

    This stool is great! Came in 2 days and looks exactly as pictured. Great addition to my living room!

  • Gye Name Royal Stool

    The Ghana Royal Stool is not only a conversation piece, but is practical in a small room. It has a hand-wrought look and not a production piece. I am happy to support the master artist and value his effort making this unique work.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very good--truly hand-made
    • How accurate was the sizing? A bit smaller than the advertised picture
