well-made metal stool makes for a very attractive end table. received exactly as described and pictured. it's simple yet eye-catching and would blend with a variety of decor styles. also versatile in use, whether table/stool/storage, and could be functional in any room of the house...even outside. exceptional value for something you can repurpose as often as you'd like as well as a reasonable price for a safavieh piece which can range into the high-end. love it!
