Good Design, Worst Quality

I have loved the look of the gnome stool for a long time and finally bought it. Unfortunately the quality leaves a lot to be desired. There are just too many problems:

- The base of the stool is uneven so it is shaky on the floor
- The finish of the paint around the ear area is bumpy and rough
- The biggest problem is the top. First it is hollow so it can't support much weight. Second, it is not flat with a raised center. Who would want a stool that can't hold weight, shaky and not flat.

Loving the Gnome!

It's true what the other reviewer said about these being shaky to sit on, but I put a lamp on mine and don't sit on it. So, I'm happy to look at it and have it in my place.

Saint Esprit, Kartell's little trea trunk stool, lightens up any room

I love bright modern things, my husband prefers the dark wood antiques he inherited from various relatives. The solution: Kartell gnomes. No matter how boring the other furniture, the funny, fairy-tale like Saint Esprit -- even the name makes me laugh because it is so outrageous -- adds a touch of humor and lightness to any room. I will have to buy another one because I found so many uses for it. Currently, Saint Esprit serves as a pedestal for my small aquarium. I am thrilled to say that I also own the gnome Attila -- every morning he smiles at me and I smile back, which is more than can be said about my husband's dull and depressing antiques.
