The stool did arrive quickly and well-packaged for sure. However, my stool has odd lines horizontally down the sides, like it was a mistake in the manufacturing or something. Maybe they used a mold or something when they constructed the stool and it left lines down the sides. They are evenly spaced out down the side and doesn't look terrible, but you can see them. My stool does not look like the one pictured in this photo. I decided I'd just keep the thing because it would be too difficult to repack and ship back. Also, I agree with one of the other reviewers, I set this down on my hardwood floor and it immediately scratched it. I'm going to have to get some of those felt pads for underneath, I suppose. Anyway, if you're not too particular, this stool might be a good option for you because it was a bit cheaper than the others I had researched and the shipping was either free or really cheap. But, if you're like me, particular, you won't be happy with this one.Read More
This is a smaller stool than some i've seen. Only clean with water and a little soap. Spray cleaners take the paint off.Read More
This stool works perfectly for my house. My living room is asian in design but the kitchen next to it has lots of stainless steel, this was a perfect meld of both. I was afraid the chrome finish would look cheap but far from it, I'm very impressed. The stool has good weight to it and looks like I paid much more than I did. I think this is an excellent classic with a modern twist, very happy I found this.Read More
Yes and no as far as recommending. If all my friends get the same thing where is the impact. Nonetheless it looks fabulous and the price was great! It's well made and attractive to boot. A definite A+.Read More
Best price I have found for this particular stool. Love the silver mirror-like finish. Adds style to any room. I use it between two Wassily chairs (black and chrome) in front of an antique Asian screen. Have received so many compliments on the juxtaposition!Read More
One can accent your garden, patio, or any indoor room with this ceramic garden stool. Handmade of quality ceramics, this stool can be used outside or inside as an extra seat, foot rest, small table, plant stand, cocktail table. Having said that,at the moment is next to my favorite reading chair I'm using it as side table, it's the perfect compliment to the room.Read More
These are unusual decorating accents, I have two and use them as side tables, extra seating and have even doubled them up next to each other as sort of drink tables in front of a couch. They also work outside and are very sturdy. The silver paint is very shiny, metallic/mirrored and hasn't faded or changed at all. Overall a great value. One thing - the bottom is unfinished porcelain (it's not visible at all, but it rests on the floor and will scrape the floor if you aren't careful - we have a wood floor and I make a point not to drag these, only lift and place).Read More
I'm in love with this little stool! I got it for my kids bathroom, next to the tub. It looks amazing and it was the perfect size too.Read More

Modern Wedding Anniversary Gifts
A wedding anniversary, whether the first or the twenty-fifth, is a milestone worth celebrating. Giving a thoughtful gift to your partner is a wonderful way to show affection and commemorate the time you've spent together. Finding the perfect gift isn't always easy, especially if you've been giving each other gifts for decades. Where do you look for new ideas? This list is the best place to start. Each gift idea has a link to the department where you can shop for the items. In England, during the Victorian era, celebrating anniversaries with gifts and parties became very fashionable, and it didn't take long for the trend to reach the United States. The traditional list of anniversary gift ideas came from this time. Then, in 1937, a group of jewelers decided to update the list to include more modern items (and more items that they sold in their stores -- diamonds show up on the list three times). That's where this list of modern wedding anniversary gifts came from. Many items from the original list appear here, and we've offered even more contemporary interpretations of the ideas. If you want to give a creative gift, you can use this list as inspiration.
