  • Great craftmensip!
    Verified Purchase

    Great craftmenship that often reminds me of someone's ancestral times. Often use this stool as a part of my meditation routine. If you don't meditate it can be used as a foot stool, or just a beautiful piece of art.

  • Awesome piece....
    Verified Purchase

    This was so much better than I expected. I get loads of compliments, it works as an accent piece, for an end table, for extra seating, or for a conversation piece.

  • Not exactly as pictured, but perfect for me
    Verified Purchase

    I needed something small for my back entry to sit and take shoes off. This is the perfect size but the finish is nothing like the picture. I expected a brown stain and what I got was black paint. This was a little disappointing, and I am waiting to see if it rubs off on the seat of someone's pants. Overall I am very happy with the stool, I like the carving, but I am considering sanding off the finish. I have many other international pieces that I picked up overseas and many have dubious finishing so this doesn't worry me too much.

  • Actually a 4+
    Verified Purchase

    But not quite a 5. It's an interesting and unique piece, although it's a little more rustic than I had anticipated and doesn't sit evenly on the floor. But I found a good spot for it and placed a mirror above it, and it definitely fits well into the decor and isn't a piece you see everywhere and I would certainly recommend it or one of the other similar pieces to anyone looking to pick up an accent stool. It's also a great price, so all things considered, I give it a 4+

  • One little "but"
    Verified Purchase

    Really beautiful piece that I am happy to have. I will probably order another. Small and the perfect size for propping up feet, sitting to remove shoes, stand for lamp, and many other uses.The little "but" is that it does not match the picture. That does not matter too much as the one I received is well-crafted and also striking but it is always nice to get what you have seen and think you are receiving!

  • Ashanti Stool
    Verified Purchase

    This is the third ashanti stool that I own and it looks exactly as pictured. I use my living room as an area for displaying my art, so there is minimal seating around the walls to give it a gallery affect. It was a little smaller that my other pieces, but I attributed that to you get what you pay for. I paid more for the other pieces and they are larger. Although most people are hesitant to sit on it saying "you don't sit on art" - I tell them I purchased it for seating purposes. I sit on it with no problem. Glad I made the purchase and brought some of Ghana to my home.

  • LOVE IT
    Verified Purchase

    I ordered the alligator stool. Very happy I did. Perfect height to put my feet on while I'm at the desk, not too bad a height to sit on, I'm 5'11 and it felt comfortable. Very solid and the picture does not do the piece justice. Does not take up alot of space and could function as a seat, a stool, or as a low end table. LOVE IT.

  • Just what I was looking for
    Verified Purchase

    This stool was just what I was looking for. I wasn't looking for a functional piece for seating, though I am sure guests could sit on it. I chose the Sankofa stool, and like others, I love the fact that it looks darker and more "weathered" than it does in the picture. The color and look is perfect among the green of my plants.

  • Hand Carved Stool
    Verified Purchase

    This was a present for my wife, this is the real thing. If someone said the stool is small, thats the whole point. People in Ghana use this stool to smash seeds and they sit in a confortable way so they don't heart their back. My wife is very happy with the stool. The reason is, because she use to live in Africa and she mean to buy one. The quality of this product is great.

  • Hand Carved Stool
    Verified Purchase

    The stool is cock-eyed. The base is not symetrical with the stool portion. Just looks odd. I was disappointed with the stool and would not encourage anyone to purchase it.

  • I was really disapointed by the size
    Verified Purchase

    This stool is extremly small. My nine year old was a little big for it. It is very light and hollow and looks very weak like it could break easily. I am looking for a box to send it back. If it was not hollow and twice the size it would be a good value...hence it is not.

  • Ashanti Stool (Ghana)
    Verified Purchase

    My husband and I just love our Ashanti stool. We looked for almost a year to find a stool to fit in our hallway which was very narrow. Our Ashanti stool fits perfect. It was true to form and picture. We even purchased a second stool because we were so impressed with our first puchase. You will not be sorry if you choose to purchase one. It is also an eye catcher. People are very quick to comment on the stool when they walk into our house. I would definately reccomend the stool.

  • Love this piece!!!
    Verified Purchase

    I was quite pleased with the beauty and the sturdiness of this peice. Perfect size. Very sturdy. Beautiful workmanship. Fits perfectly in the space that I had reserved for it in my living room. If you like nice African art at a great price, highly recommend this functional piece.

  • Just What I Wanted
    Verified Purchase

    I chose the stool that has the siamese crocodiles carved into it, and it is absolutely beautiful. It arrived before I expected it to, was well-packed, and required no assembly. It doesn't have the reddish cast that is shone in the picture; it's a very dark brown, but I knew that the colors might vary, so that's okay. It's very sturdy so the piece actually can be used as a stool. It's a stunning addition to my Afro-centric livingroom! I've shown it to and recommended it to several of my friends and neighbors and they have all loved it too.

  • Fascinating&Functional >>>
    Verified Purchase

    This carving arrived EXCELLENTLY packaged and in a timely fashion. It is a beautifully carved - and sturdy! -stool (considerably darker than it appears in the photo and "hollowed-out", making the piece much more interesting than I imagined). I would recommend the temptation to "find a better deal" --- I did and regretted it. This is the "real" deal...and overstock.com has proven to be a reputable merchant that has proven reliably consistent over time.
