"Very unique"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I do love this. I use it as a footstool. Only reason I didn t give it a 5 is because it s a bit narrow for my feet so I have to place them just so. A little to one side and it will tip over. But I still like it, and the look, and the craftsmanship.
