Perfect for a child or teenager's room.

Unique, casual, playful.

Pros: sturdy, can use in different settings
Cons: Ordered transparent rose. The color was not as pink as I had expected.

I love Kartell.

from Glen Mills, PA on 01/01/2016 – Verified Buyer

I used these little stools as a side table and made an art piece homage to Duchamp with one.

from Dallas, TX on 02/01/2016 – Verified Buyer

The Kartell Ghost bar stool is the perfect solution for a compact stool beneath my vanity. I also love that it adds a unique design feature to our bathroom but does not take up any visual space. Highly recommended!

Way too small

from Brisbane, CA on 11/06/2015 – Verified Buyer

I have the taller stools. These smaller stools - I can't imagine who would use this stool.

My favorite counter stool.

from Westport, CT on 04/14/2015 – Verified Buyer

Perfect choice for tight spaces for two reasons: it is very compact so it works with overhangs as shallow as 12", and it virtually disappears creating an illusion of more space.

Charles Ghost 18" side table

from Chicago, IL on 06/11/2015 – Verified Buyer

I am a huge fan of Kartell and Phillip Stark. I have several lamps, ghost chairs and counter stools created by this collaboration and am pleased. The 18" size is perfect for a small side table. However, the acrylic is not scratch resistant as advertised. After only using once the top of the table had several scratches made by the bottom of a coffee mug. If placing anything on this table it should have a coaster or padding.

I would have given this product 5/5 stars if that shipping had been faster. When I ordered the product my estimated shipping date changed 3 times, so it took about 2 months to arrive. All in all, I am however very pleased with the ghost stools. They add a contemporary element to the room.

Charles Ghost 18" Barstool

Love It!

from San Mateo, CA on 04/20/2014 – Verified Buyer

I thought it might be too small, but the stool fits the space in our vanity dressing area perfectly, the seat diameter and height are perfect for putting on shoes and it makes a great statement in the fact it is so translucent it takes up almost no visual space at all. Don't be fooled by the description. This is not a barstool. It's way too short for a barstool.

18" barstool

from San Francisco, CA on 07/06/2014 – Verified Buyer

The stools are just the right height for my breakfast table. They're high quality and look exactly as expected. The only downside was delivery time; they look ages to arrive and the shipping date was pushed out for a month past the already long lead time.
