In July 2017, the description stated that the base was made out of aluminum. The base is actually made out of plastic, which is why one star was removed. It was a pain to fill with 150 lbs of sand because of the hole's location. As other reviewers suggested, it's a good idea to fill the base in the location where you want to place the umbrella. Moving the base is no fun. We purchased the blue lavender umbrella and it's starting to fading in the areas exposed to the sun. Assembly is easy, but our umbrella base came with a defect (the holes in which one of the bolts goes in don't line up), so the umbrella is a bit slanted. However, communication with the Christopher Knight Home (CKH) has been successful and the company stands by its product. I was impressed with CKH customer service (it's not the fastest, but it's effective) and would not hesitate to purchase other CKH products.
Exactly as depicted. These stool tops are a little rough (natural wood finish) but are very comfy to sit on. The metal is great quality and they glide smoothly as you adjust the height. I absolutely love them! I have been able to transfer them into our new home because of the adjustable height feature. They are rustic, yet modern and add warmth and character to my kitchen. I loved them so much that I bought the version that also has a back to complement them at my kitchen island. WELL DONE Christopher Knight. Bravo.
