This stool is not only incredibly beautiful in form, finish, and function, but is substantially constructed. I initially bought 1 for my modern living room and loved it so much that I purchased 2 more. They work great as coffee and end tables with my black-leather Francis Knoll sectional and Barcelona chairs. The barrel shape adds an interesting contrast to the square and rectangular shapes of the chairs and sofa, and the chrome finish complements the stainless steel frames. With my jewel-toned area rug and natural bamboo floors, these stools look fantastic! Also, the solid surfaces and modern scale (i.e., not big and bulky) add the appropriate amount of depth, weight, and dimension to the overall decor. As for all you home decorators. If you're struggling over the color of an end table finish that will complement your area rug, fear not with this piece - the rug is partially reflected in the chrome finish in an interestingly abstract way on the lower 1/3 of the piece, and thus, is a perfect color complement!
These chinese drums look great. I bought 2 of them to use as end tables in my living room. They sit beside each chair. They have scratched my floors quite a bit. I bought cork protectors that normally sit under plants. This has helped, but, they can be pushed off of them by my children. Felt protectors were not enough to stop my floor from being scratched. Product arrived very well packaged.
I love my chrome porcelain stool. It arrived in perfect condition. Bought it to replace an end table the dogs used as a snack. Pretty sure they cannot destroy the stool. I am considering ordering another one before they are out of stock. It is a very nice addition to my family room.
This is a wonderful accent piece to place anywhere in any decor, particularly an eclectic decor like we have. We placed it next to a red leather chair near black cabinets on a black and white checkerboard kitchen floor, which makes it stand out as a sharp accessory. It's the perfect height and size to put a drink, a cellphone, an IPad. As usual, I saw it for more than twice Overstock's price elsewhere so snap this up now if you can. I'm thinking of getting another myself!
I purchased this stool to be a plant stand in my dining room.. The dining room is traditional cherry in color and wanted something that would stand out. I put this in the corner of the room and it really looks beautiful. I have received numerous compliments on it when people walk in. I saw this in another decorating book for 35 dollars more expensive plus shipping and tax. What a bargain Overstock is- and the delivery was fast and perfect. I highly recommend this to all..
Received this stool today. Arrived well-packaged and no damages. A gorgeous 'modern twist' on a classic. Looks better in person. Also, very multi-functional...can be used in other rooms. I have mine as a table beside a modern chair. Love it! Will not tire of it. Btw this is my first purchase from OS and will not be my last.
This arrived in tact and was packaged well. It is quite heavy and very much like the picture. I added more felt padding on the bottom, just to stabilize and so that the ceramic (a little chipped) would not scratch the floor. But I sat on it, and it seemed sturdy. It reflects the light in the bathroom, which is why I wanted it. The moisture and humidity will not affect ceramic as much.
I had been looking for something to cover a hole in the wall made by the cable guy and I was thinking about a garden stool. I was thinking white or blue until I saw this chrome one. It is so perfect and pretty. Do not hesitate to order!
