Really pretty to include the look of the wood. Be aware the color's are MUCH brighter than pictured so if you buy this color you better like orange. the wood is beautiful looking and not sure what type of wood this is. Here is what I learned; I bought a console table made of "rubber tree wood" and though its stunning, its VERY soft and will easily scratch deep. This wood appears to be the same. For me the look of it is a favorite, but it your dog for example jumps up on the arm, expect a deep scratch. Its really, really soft wood, but again really nice looking.. I bought some wood filler markers to hide the scratches. your thumbnail will easily put a deep scratch in it. Not recommend for a little kids room. I still love the piece, its nice looking.
I choose this stool because of its beautiful design; however, build quality is poor. The wood joints have large gaps that will not close no matter how tight the provided screws are installed. This makes for a very loose fit of the side arms and leg end pieces that may actually result in the stool coming apart if a person sits on it. Needs several bracing brackets to make it sturdy enough to sit on it.
