    I use it as a coffee table and foot stool in a small room in front of a love seat. It is very attractive and light enough to move easily. It fills a function for me.

    Verified Purchase

    I love this stool. I was looking for something to use in my foyer beside my basket of outdoor shoes. Instead, this is so attractive, it is now on the hearth, with a coordinating vase of foliage on the other side. It added a much needed pop of color to the living room. About the price: with the cost of wood, to find a solid piece of wood this size with the price I paid is amazing. A silly additional note: this was my first order from Not only did it arrive faster than I thought possible, it was the best-packed item I have ever received. Whatever the packing material was, it made wonderful webs for Trunk or Treat.

    I am so happy with this little stool. It is very attractive and functional. I bought a microfibre covered pillow that matches my chairs and it is very comfortable as a foot rest. My guests always comment on how unique it is and want to know where I purchased it. Might get another one.

    Really nice piece in my family room that has an Asian feel. The wood is on the softer side which we realized when the dog was caught chewing on it, but I'm happy w/ the purchase. We repaired/disguised the chewed up area.
