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...?

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.

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.

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.
