I'm enjoying these garden stools (I ordered 2) and they add the right elegant touch to my dining room and bedroom. They are a soft, subtle light grey, which works perfectly with my decor.Read More
I bought this piece to put in a corner of a sitting room that just needed a little "something." There seems to be some disagreement in other reviews about the color of this item. I would definitely call it a soft off-white/ivory...which is exactly the same color as the furniture in the room, so it's perfect! Understated and elegant. I'm very happy with this purchase.Read More
I ordered two of these porcelain garden stools to use as side tables in a small screen room. They were extremely well-packaged and arrived in excellent condition. They are just the right size to function as a small accent table and provide additional seating if necessary. I am very pleased with the quality and with Overstock's service.Read More
Stool is great! Came quickly and contrary to some reviews I don't notice any "greyish" tint to it. If so it's minimal. Too me, Its white. I decorate with a lot of whites and have white crown molding, baseboard, pillows int the room and and this is white! Its very sturdy and quite heavy too so It stays where its put and you can sit on it. I think its great and a really good price. Just FYI, it has an opening at the bottom so you could put a light inside or candle if you are using this outside. I am not.Read More
I ordered this stool from a big-name company & it arrived in tiny little pieces after weeks of delay. I found this on Overstock - it was even cheaper than the other site's sale price. It arrived quickly, was extremely well -packaged and in perfect condition.Read More
After reading many of the reviews, I was skeptical about ordering this stool. After going back and forth between many designer sites, I decided to just go for it. The price absolutely cannot be beat. It arrived very quickly and it was packaged well for a fragile object. I held my breath as I opened the box...to find the perfect garden stool. It is everything I ever hoped it would be. I'm uncertain why others have posted comments about the color. Color looks identical to the picture. Hope this helps someone! If you are on the fence, go for it. Like me, you won't have any regrets.Read More
Love these! I am using two of these as stools (additional seating) in my living room. They sit under my sofa table/console table that sits behind my sofa. They are the perfect height and very comfortable to sit on, even for an extended period of time. I will even sit on it at the table while doing paperwork as I watch television. These are so versatile! I can use them indoors or out on the patio, as a stool, or an end table... the only limit is your imagination. These are heavy duty solid quality. Packaged extremely well for delivery! Thanks.Read More
nice stool if you want a very cool white white. not off-white at all. wish i could sennd it backRead More
This stool was exactly what I had hoped it to be. it is versatile since I can use it in virtually any room and outdoors! I have seen similar stools in stores but they are not made as well as this one. I am very pleased. I have also received compliments..Read More
I received my off-white garden stools. They are very heavy and sturdy, but I have 2 comments that may help others: These are NOT in the white family. The two I received are the same color and I would describe them as "light celadon" or "light seafoam green." Fortunately that color goes well with my decor, so I am fine. If you want a white or cream, this is not it. The top is slightly curved inward. I put my coffee cup on the edge and it tilted, but wasn't going to spill. I'd be more nervous to put a stemmed wine glass on them anywhere but in the middle, though. The top is comfortable as a make shift "seat" but I am planning to use the duo in place of a coffee table. I am happy with the purchase, but I think the color is mis-represented.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.
