Begun after Paul Rowan failed to find a shade he liked for his apartment window - and made one himself - Umbra tends to break molds and create new categories. Les Mandelbaum came on shortly after the company was started, and 31 years later, Umbra is still innovating. Modern and casual furniture, accessories, and housewares are made affordable, and Umbra's products have won multiple awards on the world stage.

I have purchased this piece a few times after moving to different locations and it never disappoints. It looks great on the wall, very useful and practical. Extremely convenient and super easy to hang on the wall. Very secure and I have never had a problem with any of them. I highly recommend this product.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I use it as an immediate drop box for keys and mail which is also elevated enough that my toddler can't reach it. However, it is smaller than I expected with shallow pockets. It doesn't look as nice as the picture. It is just plastic looking. No luxurious woodgrain effect.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
