Rated 5 out of 5Â by mrg2013 Great Coat Tree
I bought the espresso for my bedroom. It looks great with my furniture and there are plenty of hooks. I am going to get the bamboo for my entryway. This coat tree is also very easy to assemble.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by billybaroo Poor quality, even if it looks nice
The Coat Tree represents everything bad about Ready-To-Assemble furniture: it looks great in catalog/web site; it appears to offer good functionality and aesthetics at a reasonable price; however, it simply does not last, and, in the end, is a poor value.
Virtually every joint in this coat rack has become progressively loose. While the fix seems simple at first, re-tightening the screws, this ends up making things worse because the threaded inserts are pulled out of their sockets. This results in none of the 'branches' resting flush against the 'trunk' and becoming even more wobbly. Container Store: you might consider improving this product's lifespan by sourcing better threaded inserts which actually screw into the wood rather than simple barbs which prove to work themselves loose.
What other reviews have said about the base also becoming unsteady is indeed the case. Here again, better fasteners would make a substantial difference. Very disappointing product!

Functional, compact, easy to assemble. The base is weighted. It is working just fine for me. I don't expect it to be a super heavy lifter, just a place I can hang my coat, and stuff. This Coat Tree is under $100. Simple.Functional.

(* not just a description of the last guy/woman you dated)
My family loved the look of this coat tree and enjoyed using it for just a few months....then it gradually became more and more wobbly before it eventually came crashing down in the middle of the night. The hole drilled into the middle post where the base attaches to the post with a screw had become too wide so it can no longer be screwed together tightly. Since there is no way to fix it, we have no choice but to trash it and buy something new from a different company. I don't like throwing money away on products that turn to garbage in less than a year, so I consider this a big waste.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by PPF1 great in a large shower
We have a stone tiled walk in shower and needed a place for towels without putting up hooks. This piece is great and makes it feel like a spa

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Iroko Very Poor Product
This was the worst purchase I made from the container store despite being properly assembled. Could not secure the base adequately, its a slip shod piece of furniture. Just ordered a replacement tree (not the container store) from another company.

I like this tree, and it gets the job done. Just beware in the winter time, too many heavy coats will make it tippy. Be sure to balance coats on all stems as well.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Ilenemf Now there is a place for all
I bought this for my daughter and son-in-law to replace a previous tree which was down to one dowel holder. It is sleek and has enough places to hang things in their DC row house, which is short on closet space. It fits easily into the space they had available and matches the furniture around it. It will do much to keep them more organized during the winter months. Would have rated it higher but just purchased so hoping it holds up in the future

Rated 1 out of 5Â by allow Very poor quality coat tree
I bought the Espresso coat tree about 2 months ago and it is broken! The wood is not sturdy enough at the base. At night the other day I heard a big "BOOM" and discovered that all my jackets/bags were on the floor... I tried to put it back in place but the wood was too loose to fit the screw. Do not waste your money on the Espresso coat tree! Maybe the bamboo one is sturdier...?

Rated 4 out of 5Â by wickpatt Love the look
I love the way this looks and it's sturdy, even when the kids are pulling their coats and backpacks off of it. My only complaint would be the hardware when putting it together. Two screws came very stripped and there were a few more that wern't in the best shape.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by iugirl1023 Nice looking, but easy to knock over
I bought this because it is the exact style and color of the rest of my living room furniture. It came with a few minor nicks, nothing major that you can see from far away. And it mostly works great. But if you bump into it or everyone puts their coats on one side it gets a little precarious. It's not super wobbly, just a tiny bit imbalanced in certain situations. Overall it's a fine rack with a lot of places to hang things and I really like the style.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by gladmom use it for dress up
Between my two daughters they accumulated big collection of dressup clothes, mostly dresses and hats. I bought this coat rack to create the dress up corner. It holds long princess gowns and hats perfectly in plain sight and unwrinkled. I also have a trunk with different skirts, vests and wings. It is a favorite corner for playdates and parties now.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Terrific with small footprint
This tree has a small, but sturdy base. It doesn't take up a huge amount of space and the hooks are well-spaced. Put together simply. Looked at a million coat trees & thrilled to find this.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Jenny12583 Great entryway storage.
Overall this is a great product. Allows for many coats to be hung from it and eliminates clutter. I like the dark color as it matched the darker wood in my home. I do wish there was also a place for umbrellas attached to it. Additionally, if there are too many heavy, winter coats hanging on this it does get a bit top heavy and has a tendency to tip over. It doesn't take up much space, which is nice for next to the door placement.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by hmurphy Sturdy Coat Rack
The coat rack was very easy to put together and very sturdy. It has a nice appearance and color. My one issue would be the height of the item, I thought I would be taller. But it is a good size for families.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DaniInArizona Beautiful, useful and space-saving
The wood coat tree is pretty matching other furniture in my apartment. Because the base is rectangular and small, it can nicely stand behind the door, where I put it to save space at the entrance. Eight hooks, ( three of them branching out) in different level offer many hanging options. One problem I had was assembly -- screwing the main pole. The particular position made it hard to screw straight. Mine didn't go straight and got stuck. Unscrewing and starting over was very difficult.

This coat tree is beautiful!! I had searched many stores online and this was the best--price, beauty, sturdiness combo. I saw it at a store and had to get it. It's quite versatile. When the winter is behind us it will be a beautiful part of my decor. It's very contemporary and compliments my decor very well. It was also very easy to install. So glad I bought it. Worth every penny.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by nightowlshopper Natural Bamboo Coat Tree -- Serves the purpose
The first one I received was damaged in shipping -- box not well padded; but the second one was in good condition and the store was very accomodating and prompt about the exchange. Overall, I am quite satisfied with this item. It does the job and matches my wood floors perfectly. The coat tree has a smaller footprint than many others and works well in my bedroom. Perfect for a child's room. It is fairly well constructed; nothing spectacular but worth the price; the wood is smooth and only the pre-drilled screw holes and the base seams splintered slightly -- in hidden locations. It looks exactly like the web photo. Very easy to put together -- just need a Phillips head screw driver. Pegs of varying size are serviceable. I recommend it if you're lookikng for a serviceable coat tree that's fairly sturdy and well balanced.
