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.
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.
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
