We were looking for a piece of furniture for the kitchen that would be used for storage and to help keep things off the table and kitchen island. We are able to store and organize all our recipes, cookbooks, magazines, mail, and anything else that might pass through the kitchen. This furniture is serving its purpose but it's also very attractive! The wicker and iron combination makes this piece unique looking and the baskets add very neat flare. We were able to assebly it fairly quickly and easily in our living room and had it in the kitchen the same day we got it delivered. This is an excellent value and we got a lot for the great price we paid.
