This stand had to be assembled, which wasn't mentioned in the product description. It serves the purpose -- I have a large stoneware pot that needed to be on a stand -- but I'm glad it's back in a corner. It seems sort of cheap to me. However, like I said, it does what I wanted it to do, so I can't complain.
I was very pleased with this product; I would order another if I had enough space in my apartment. I am using it as a 'spacer' between two chairs to break up an open layout into separate rooms. Because of the finish and it is equally attractive at any angle.and the flat black finish makes it work with any other finishes.
I love this piece and it is so sturdy and holds my fishbowl perfectly! I had looked for one that wasn't as tall and it was exactly what I was looking for!
