LaDonna Enters from Milwaukee, Wi
It's beautiful and it's really strong. It is a light wood and will change slightly with age. We have had it in our house for 5 years --- yes, this exact product -- and it still looks new. I will say that we don't wear shoes in our house -- and one of the hotels in the area has bamboo (not sure it's Teragren) and the only negative they told me (they have had it for at least 7 years) was women's high stiletto heels ... they can leave slight dents. Not a problem for my family.
