My wife and I had been researching a combination Coat rack and Umbrella stand for about a month. We visited almost every on line site, as well as a number of brick and mortar stores. I never realized how many coat racks there are. We literally stumbled upon this unit while looking for something else on Overstock.com. The picture was interesting, and the dimensions, color and price were exactly what we felt we could use and want to spend. We live in Southern California so the rack is more decorative than something we will use for its true purpose. The unit shipped quickly and was well boxed. It was easy to put together, and from a distance looks great. Up close, you can see the screw heads, especially on the top hooks, and to me, it cheapens the overall look. But, it is a minor issue overall, since, I have to guess, you won't see them if you do hang coats and hats.
