Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and functional! I love the set of 4 Charles Ghost stools I bought to go under a black walnut checkerboard kitchen breakfast island in my kitchen. As a mother of 2 young boys they are easy to clean and the opaque white color is stunning! Before I placed my order I was going to order the clear stools but after describing the kitchen to the sales associate he suggested the white opaque...they coordinate beautifully with the large Hicks pendents from Circa Lighting in the room. It was well worth the wait. Thank you so much for the lovely addition to my kitchen!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really fun! I ordered the ghost stools in orange-- which felt really bold for me. I love white and neutrals and considered the clear stools, but felt I needed a pop of color in the kitchen and that this would be a fun way to do it. It is! The are really fun and cool, much less ubiquitous than the clear-- lots of personality! When they flood with sunlight they are especially gorgeous. They are relatively comfortable, but not super comfortable. I ordered three. One arrived solo and two arrived stacked in one box. The bottom of those two was pretty badly scratched, but YLiving had it picked up within a week and I am now waiting for my replacement. In general, they seem to fingerprint and get small scratches easily, so use it as an accent piece in a low traffic area or be okay with that. I am okay with it as it takes close inspection to see.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to new bathroom!!! I was delighted with my recent purchase of the small sized Ghost stool. I loved the look with carrera marble and gray walls. It is a small bathroom and the transparent crystal was perfect for not taking up much space visually. Although the shipping was delayed due to Sandy Y Living was very clear in communication about their delay. It was a good experience all around!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Charles Ghost stool in pale green is simply stunning. Working with YLighting was a friendly, efficient experience. They were most cooperative about giving me EXACT dimensions, as the stool sits over a small kitchen pipe and had to be able to clear it. My counters are dark green marble and the backsplash is a pale mint green. The green stool looks as if Kartell and I collaborated on the design and color! I love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Charles Ghost Stools are beautiful! I purchased 2 Charles Ghost stools in crystal to go along with a bar height table from a more moderately priced retailer. The addition of the stools makes the table look more elegant. The color of the stools allows for them to be used in any environment, so they can be moved from room to room easily! They look beautiful & were received in my tight time frame.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very modern, practical, comfortable We purchased 2 smoke-colored Charles Ghost Stools for our apartment -- they definitely match the sleek, stainless decor we are going for. They are sturdy, comfortable, and very practical -- be careful when you order though, so that you order the right height!!! Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stool for a small space!! I needed a stool next to a counter in my kitchen with very little depth and this stool has both form and function! The clear plexi does not take away from my beautiful marble waterfall counter. It's very sturdy and strong so very useful as well. Highly recommended.

Is the rose ghost stool more pink then lavender? And is the color true to computer? I do realize each computer is alittle different.

Asked by: Robyn
Hi there, and thanks for your interest in this design. The color of the rose chair has much more of a pink/red tone than a purple/lavender tone. If you think of the exact color of a rosé wine, you can be confident that this is the same color chair that you will receive. Kartell does a great job of providing photos that capture the true colors of their products without over-editing. Please let us know if we can offer any additional clarification beyond this - we are happy to help! Parin YLighting Customer Service
