I am extremely happy with this footstool. We have another teak footstool which we purchased as part of a set which cost us over $300. While it may have come from a premire teak furniture company it is alot to pay for a footstool. That being said, I found this footstool everything I had hoped for especially for the price. It is well made (sturdy) and looks good too. As an added bonus I found it folds for easy storage and can be set fot two different heights. I would highly recommend this to someone looking for a teak footstool.
