I ordered this because of the dimensions. I have a narrow long living room and 'regular' sized furniture seems too clunky in that space. This piece is labeled as a stool but I probably would not use it as such, only by the fireside, since it's slightly lower than a normal stool. It is perfectly sized to sit at the end of a sofa or between two seating areas. I intended to use it to hold a vase of fresh flowers, but when I opened the box I immediately ordered another one to use as a book/lamp table. It is on the smaller side, making it appear a little delicate, but that's a nice balance to the heaviness of the iron. It is very current in its design, Restoration Hardware's latest catalogue is full of iron tables, but this piece is a fraction of the price. The finish is not perfect, i.e., it is a little rough in its texture, but that adds subtly to its charm making it appear to be an antique iron piece. If you like a modern eclectic look, and want unique pieces to accent your other more sophisticated furniture, then this will work. The colour is pretty uniform, it just has some pitting, variations in the iron etc, which I wanted, but this might not suit all tastes.
