The cookware stand looks exactly as pictured. I use it for my LeCreuset pots and they hold up well. I do feel the need for rubber shelf liner on each shelf because the pots will slide a little too easily for me on them if moved. But it fits the corner I have it in and looks great. The top part of the stand does not fit flush into the corner of wall however. It was easy to put together. I did it by myself in about an hour for me. It's nice.
