Questions & Answers
Umbra Casa Tissue Box
Danielle from San Jose, CA– Verified Buyer
I really admired its design, very reasonable price, but a little bit embarrassed when I fount it doesn't have the bottom part! But still looks okay, because you don't turn it over to see its bottom.

This tissue box holder adds a nice modern touch to the room. I bought 2 in white, although I'm sure the black would be equally nice.

Looks good but it's very light in construction and when you pull the tissue out of the box, the entire thing moves. It's not a big deal but you may have to use two hands or move the box back to position.

I love the tissue box! This is the second one I have purchased. When you pull a tissue out the box stays on the table without having to use your other hand.
