This stool is slightly bigger than it appears in the picture, but that is actually a good thing. It functions very well as a table or a large stool. I placed it in front of the black leather sofa that folds down as a bed (it has the middle section that doubles as a cup holder.) The net result is a larger bed for the kids' friends when they sleep over. It is nice leather, durable and sturdy. An excellent buy. And the delivery company put the legs on so all I had to do was place it and use it! I just LOVE Overstock!!
