Unfinished and small
Alan from Denver, CO– Verified Buyer
I bought this in (bright) white to be used as a garden seat and for that purpose it's fine. It's lightweight and easy to move about. However, it is much smaller than I expected (It really is a footstool/ottoman). Also, the seams from the plastic molding are visible which takes away from the mod design. I think that I would have been more satisfied if I had been able to get this product in black.
works as an end table too

If you are interested in modern outdoor furniture and are looking for something that fits that bill, is easy to clean and will stand up to the elements, this is it. We use it as an ottoman, and also as an end table. It works for both.

Ottoman looks great and is very comfortable/functional. Great outdoor piece.
Jenna from Westport, CT– Verified Buyer
These were a perfect fit for a children's room project...interesting shape to look at, vibrant color (green), low height to pair with a low slung couch...and best part, virtually indestructible so kids can climb on. (or through!)
Perfect for pool area
Sally from Park City, UT– Verified Buyer
We use this as a side table or low single bench for our pool area. Indestructible and the bright orange I chose is fun! Thinking about ordering a couple more in other bright colors.
A conversation piece
James Deas from Miami, FL– Verified Buyer
Simple, sleek, and very modern. can fit indoors or outdoors.

love them. the color on the green is much brighter than shown. so , i put it in the bedroom. now, i ordered another white one, great item and easy to clean.
Great design, comfort, and indestructible (around kids!)
Hedy from New York, NY– Verified Buyer
Perfect height for our low slung couch to rest your feet, use as an extra seat or to rest stuff on (including beverage as its level and rigid). Got it in black and already wearing well after little kids jumped on it and crawled through it.
