Cute and stylish
Patricia Weitz from Nyack, NY – Verified Buyer
Love these tables, and have them in 4 different colors--two of the light and dark greens in the family room, and a red and silver one for my bedroom. Obviously I love them! My 18 month old did scratch my dark green one which I'm very bummed about, but that is no fault of the table....
Low Key Modern
Design Lover from Tempe AZ – Verified Buyer
This Kartell Panier is VERY affordable modern design that is useful. I bought the light green and am using it as an occassional table between two white lounge chairs. The low profile provides an unexpected but nice counterbalance to the more substantial midcentury modern pieces in the house. Thanks to the polycarbonate material, this piece is fun and quirky!
Crazy Cat Lady from Tucson, AZ – Verified Buyer
This lovely little piece sits between a Bubble Club Sofa and a leather sling chair to make an elegant, cat-proof corner. Shorter than I had anticipated, the Panier nonetheless is eye-catching, prompting comments of "Neat!"--even more so when Lily the Persian Cat perches on it. This piece arrived right on time in perfect condition.
Perfect Companion to the Ghost Chair
JP from Omaha, NE – Verified Buyer
LOVE the light grey color, which prevents me from stumbling over in the dark! This is the perfect companion to the Ghost Chair.
Cristiana barcenas from Miami, florida
Love the piece i have two in the same color as side tables and i stack them sometimes. No assembly is needed, and its a very versatile piece loved the tracking system on the web.
brooklynne from Brooklyn, NY
When I first saw this table in a magazine I wasn't really drawn to it. But, I bought one to try out for my bedroom since it was on sale and I love it. It's really a statement kind of object that I think will really be impressive.
We have the dark green

A nice little table, my wife loves it. You can call it a statement piece, especially if the rest of your place is lame. lol
