Useful and visually appealing

As a small homeowner I have to think twice about what I buy. There is very limited space as the house is old (1936) and does not have much closet space. When I saw this ladder I knew it would be perfect. It is sturdy and handy for reaching the top shelves of cabinets or the ceiling fan. The color is a true red and it shines. The ladder comes with a peg to hang it on if you so desire. This would make a nice gift for the person who has everything. The simple design goes perfect with my mid century decor.
Beautiful Step Stool

Its sturdy and fits in small spaces as it folds up tight. The hand rail is tall and therefore other step stools would fit in shorter areas better. The red color is quite vibrant, so it stands out in any decor. Smaller steps are harder to use since they are small on the foot, but the large platform is perfect.
a sleek complement

to a contempo kitchen. Love our floor to ceiling kitchen storage- love it even more when I pull out the snazzy step ladder to get those hard to reach items. Surface finish is a well-executed hi-gloss, fire engine red. The treads are abit narrow, but caution should always be used on any ladder. Also the accompanying hanging hardware is well thought out- no need to hide this step ladder!

It's quite sturdy and the red is stunning. Brightens my apartment!
Gorgeous and functional!

Simply beautiful design. This came out of the box ready to go. The door hanging is easy. I did end up placing some strategic pads on it so it was silent when closing the laundry closet door, otherwise it will bump a little against the door. If you're hanging on a wall, no problem. It is sturdy and heavy and easy to open. Looks great when in use...like a sculpture! Very happy.
Great look, prompt delivery and no freight charge. What's not to like?

Very nice design on the step ladder. I'm using it in my library and love that it hangs on the wall out of the way until I need it.

The ladder is beautiful/hip option for a functional item and fits well into the space.
Sleek design, easy to use
By: Susan, Homeowner (New York, NY)
After a recent kitchen renovation, I needed an easy-to-function step ladder to reach some high cabinets I had installed. My new kitchen has high-gloss white cabinetry and this ladder fits in perfectly. It opens and closes easily, doesn't weigh too much, doesn't scratch the floor, and comes with an attractive chrome hook that you can hang it on for open/viewable storage. A great purchase for the price point and looks sleek and modern. I highly recommend.

My Karl Malmvall step ladder is just as described--it's a functional work of art. I have it hung, displayed at my entry door, whose red color it matches.
