Absolutely love it!
By: Couture, Homeowner (Boston, MA)
I purchased the Frank Gehry twist cube to use as a bench in my new walk in shower. I wanted something that was very stylish, moveable, water resistant and well made.The Twist cube completely fits the bill.. I absolutely love the way it looks--a lovely silver grey color. The seat is actually very comfortable to sit on, is a great height and size and looks very, very wonderful in my space! I've looked for an alternative to a built in shower bench for quite a while, but kept coming back to this one. It's perfect for my needs. The other great feature is that is has a plug at the bottom so if one wanted to make the seat heavier and therefore less portable, it can easily be filled with sand. A superb choice for me.
