Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 274 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great buy! Just purchased this before Thanksgiving and all of my holiday guests commented on this sturdy, attractive stool. Everyone was absolutely in love with it. It literally looks good almost anywhere! So happy I purchased it. December 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect I got this stool for my daughter. I wanted something attractive in our formal living room that was "hers" to use. She loves it and it blends really well with our eclectic/global decor. December 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Adorable I just remodeled my half bath with birds and bees, so when I saw this stool, I knew it would fit perfect! November 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Handy Item I get a lot of use out of my stand --- I rest my pocketbook on it if I don't want to put it on the floor and of course, I use it to stand on if I need to reach some thing up high. It is very sturdy. I thought it was going to be black but mine is brown. Still like it anyway. November 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love it when form and function come together in such a nifty little package! I use this cute little bee stand as an extra surface when needed. It is also built well-enough to stand on when you need an extra bit of height. It's just over 10 inches tall and has an 11 inch circumference. Very happy to have this in my home! September 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just perfect The stand is the perfect size to sit near a chair or bedside. Workmanship is good and the color goes with any decor. Stand was heavier then I thought it would be. A truly great buy. September 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a very handy stool for holding magazines This stool adds a unique touch to a chair in my bedroom. Love it! September 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very sturdy Bought this stool for granddaughter it works perfectly ! September 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by So Nicely Made I purchased this little stool for my Grandson, so he could reach the top shelf of his bookcase. It was the best idea yet! it is very sturdy and very cute! So nicely made and blends with any décor! I am very happy with this little purchase. And my Grandson is sitting here and he agrees! He is 5 years old! Thank-You Ballard for another GREAT Find! September 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect little conversation piece I had admired this bee stand in the catalogs for months. When it was put on sale, I couldn't resist any longer. It's the perfect little step stool. And it looks great just sitting in the corner. It's unique look gets noticed. September 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by What a find! Beautiful, sturdy and perfect for the corner of my bathroom. I paired with the three small insect plaques. Nice. September 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Adorable and Functional I purchased one, and loved it so much that I ordered a second. Love the bee design (also have the French bee glasses), but it is "organic" in that it goes with any decor. I use my bee stand on my balcony, where it is perfect for a glass of wine. I have also balanced a talavera pot on my bee stand, and it is stunning. BTW, I have left it out in the rain, with no issues with the color running, as others mentioned. The most important thing to mention is that it is very sturdy, and does not wobble in the wind. The second bee stand is perched in my guest bathroom to hold a basket with mini soaps, bath gels, etc. These will get moved around to different locations. Perfect gift! September 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sturdy stool It's a very sturdy little stool and just the right height to help me reach the top shelf in my kitchen. The fact that it is really cute is an added bonus. September 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bee stool This is perfect for a small corner spot in my study. It is sturdy enough to sit on or use as a foot stool. September 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful little stool Very well made and so versatile. Great design and very sturdy. Can be used as a little seat, footstool, plant stand....great for reaching to top of bookshelf and cabinet shelf. Love the design. September 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well built little foot stool. I love the carved details and have received several compliments. Unique, well built and adorable little foot stool. September 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a great addition to any room! I love this little stool! Right out of the box, it was adorable. I have had many comments on it. I see it finding many spaces around my house. Right now it's sitting next to the love seat - a perfect place for my handbag when I walk in the door. Too cute!! September 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for kids and adults, alike We use it in our powder room for our toddlers to access the sink to wash hands, but it's not your typical juvenile step stool, so it still looks sophisticated enough for (adult) guests. September 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by beautiful, well built Everyone who has seen this has loved it. I bought it to help my dog get up on the sofa as he can no longer jump up on his own. believe it or not this has an honored place in our home on it's own! September 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is sturdy, stable, and great looking. Just what I needed. I don't like getting my little folding stepladder out all the time. The little Bee is a decorative, safe way to keep me in touch with things that are a bit out of my reach. I love it! September 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by So beautiful This little stool is sitting in my LR as you come down the step and fills a hole behind a chair tuned at an angle. Daily when I walk past it I think is is like a visual painting. It is not some ordinary wooden stool but a beautiful wooden stool with a beautiful carved bee. Recommend this highly. September 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is so cute! I don't think there was anything in the description of this stool that said you could stand on it, so I'm sure I'm not supposed to, but I ordered it for a little boost to reach the top shelves in my pantry. It's very sturdy, and doesn't take up much room. And the bee design, as I stated previously, is so cute. September 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great little stool for the money, sturdy for standing upon. I use my bee stand for getting to the upper cabinets of my house, everything that's just out of reach. Its sturdy, strong and beautiful. I like it so much I have one on both levels of my house. September 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by So handy and worth every penny. This Bee Stand is everything I had hoped for. It is a perfect item for so many uses! I bought it to reach the back of the top shelf in my pantry. Works wonders for that but is so easy to move around I have used it to sit on, set a drink on and as a footstool. It's even perfect for just sitting there and being decoration in my living room. This stool has lived up to my expectation. Some reviewers said it had a stain that would need to be wiped down or that rubbed off. This has NOT been my experience. The workmanship is quite nice and I would buy another for a gift. September 3, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall features This product is cute and useful, well made, sturdy. September 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This bee stand is very well made and heavy. Very attractive. I have been looking at this little stool for about three years or more and finally decided to buy it. It arrived quickly, packed very well,with no assembly required. It's very charming! It adds just a touch of nostalgia and serves different uses in my living room. I have dark hardwood floors and the stool looks very nice with my decor. I've received many compliments and they want to know where I purchased it. Thank you Ballard Design, I love your products! September 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cute Little Foot Stool I am so happy with this purchase that I had been eyeing for a couple years! I use it as a step stool in my kitchen to reach some of my higher shelves in my cabinets and it's sturdy and practical along with being adorable. August 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by WELL MADE This Bee stand is incredibly well made and sturdy. I always expect the very best from Ballard but this far, far exceeded my expectations. Beautifully crafted wood, I just adore this little stool. No regrets at all and I recommend it to anyone who loves the unique. August 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cutest Stool Ever! I love this stool so much, I bought a second one. I'm 5'2" and I use it often to get things from the higher shelves in the house. It's small, but useful! And I love the bee design! August 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Darling and Functional Just opened my shipment and I love the BEE STOOL! It is darker than pictured...the legs are more solid in color with a black stain. The top of the stool is lighter, but more brown than shown. The carved bee is quite detailed. It will be next to my living room sofa to hold my coffee, but I see my grand daughters pulling it into the kitchen to get up onto the counter...their favorite place to gather! BEE HAPPY!
