The edges of the top have removable fiddlers on all sides and there are leaves at both the forward and aft ends. Hidden storage for glasses and bottles is in a compartment on the tabletop. The stools upholstery is of the same black polished leather as the settee, and its construction is a work of art allowing its height to be adjusted by raising and lowering it.
