I've seen numerous coatracks in stores, and most have been wobbly and look very poorly made. This one is very sturdy, very easy to assemble, and looks expensive. The quality of this product is excellent, and I would highly recommend to others. The lower hooks are low enough that my children can reach them...great for backpacks after school. The umbrella holder is a bonus, and the perfect place to store those damp umbrellas. This is a must have!
