Story Behind the Art:
Akwasi Agyeman was born into a family of 12 children in the small tribal village of Foase in Ghana, West Africa. The family was so poor that Akwasi was limited to only a 7th grade education in order to help his father farm to feed the family. In 7th grade his teacher asked each of them to make something for art class. Akwasi produced a fertility doll as his project and amazed the teacher. Akwasi knew then he had a natural talent for carving. After ten years and with the help of fair trade, Akwasi is now married with two handsome boys. He employs 15 people and has built a small three bedroom house for his family. Akwasi and his fellow artisans hope you enjoy their work.

I purchase 5 of these tables all different and this one is the most beautiful. Color (main) is brown/black and carvings are color of wood, and the only other color is milk chocolate color. This color is a bit darker then the online photo. Like all handmade tables it has "imperfections" such as carving "mistakes". I love it and last piece of advice. .. wait for sale on all World Trade items.Read More
The tables arrived in great condition. Shipping was prompt. I found the tables to be exactly what I wanted and needed. While I ordered a pair, each table was very different with its own distinct look and character. I love them. Thanks Overstock! GREAT item!!!Read More
I love African themed decorative items. While in college one of my favorite and most memorable courses was an advanced African art class which centered around Western Africa so I am able to recognize many themed pieces. This small yet functional table is perfect for what I intended to use it for. I am an author and artist so it now sits in my home loft area which serves as my office and studio. It gives just that finishing touch to my studio.Read More
The table is beautifully carved but the image color is misrepresented. The table is black, brown and cream only. There are no reddish browns in the table at all. The absence of the red color is a big disappointment! Pay attention to the measurements as the image looks wider than the actual size but the measurements are correct. Table is lightweight. I plan to put a glass top on it to help weight it down.Read More
Love it! A great accent tablet to have! No one else will have it so why not buy it!Read More
I got this table to use as a side table for a chair in a sitting room. It works well for that purpose. The table is light and care must be taken not to knock to over. I love the design, great price, fast delivery.Read More
I left a former review that I don't see. If you can get one of these that has a straight table top and that doesn't tip, it's a great little table and a bargain. I had to go through several tables to get one that works. If you're willing to go through this, you'll like the table.Read More
The piece is a lovely, high quality addition to the decor of my home.Read More
The table is very small and I would worry about its stability with a coaster and drink on it.. Yet it is decorative and I use it as a piece to fill a vacant spot in my living room.Read More

Best Sunroom Furnishing Ideas
Sunrooms are often some of the most popular areas of any home. Large windows and garden views make sunrooms feel like outdoor retreats while still providing the cover and warmth of indoor rooms. Because sunrooms are connected more to the outdoors than any other room in your home, pick design elements and furniture that work with that theme. Below, you'll find some of the best sunroom furnishing ideas. Seating: One of the most important parts of a sunroom is the seating arrangement. Since you'll likely want to spend many warm nights and bright days in your sunroom, you'll need adequate seating. Sunrooms typically feature either wood furniture or wrought iron seating. When deciding what's right for you, consider the overall look of the room as well as the intended comfort level. Wooden furniture with thick cushions is warmer and more comfortable than metal. A wicker sectional sofa with comfortable cushions will work well with the design of a sunroom. Alternatively, wrought iron benches and chairs give a modern look and feel to a room. Mismatched plush armchairs are a great way to bring both comfort and casual elegance to a sunroom. Tables: When picking out tables for your sunroom, consider how you're going to use the area. Choose a low table that can act as a coffee table for guests to set down their drinks. Tables with glass inserts match sunrooms well because of surrounding glass windows. Sunrooms are a popular place to go during parties and family get-togethers, so consider adding a small dining table and chairs to the room for meals. Design elements: Although sunrooms are indoors, they tie in the nature and wonder of the outdoors. Choose design elements that bring both sun and nature into the room. Wicker planters can hold plants of your choice. Place planters on side tables and on the floor next to entrances to give an inviting impression as guests enter the room. Artwork can change a bland sunroom into something charming and interesting. Look for paintings and sculptures that incorporate colors and themes from the surrounding decor.
