Sweeter in person, I use this as a stunning piece as bedside table. I only wish there another to accompany it. the colour is a rich walnut which compliments the other great furniture finds in my room. Its solid wood (a treat and rarity nowadays) and is both attractive and functional. It grows on me more and more.

"everything I hoped for"

"We love our wall hanging"

Since both myself and my friend are breast cancer survivors we found this item as a reminder that there is life after cancer as depicted by the rising sun and moon indicating a new beginning since we also purchased a new home together. Item was wonderfully packed to eliminate potential damage in shipping. We both love this item.
