What is this household item? Looks like an overengineered magazine rack.

My flatmate just brought this home from the thrift store. One stacked on top of the other
. Side by side
. Close-up of feet
Made of chrome or knock-off chrome. Two pieces, but they don't seem to slot inside each other easily. Both bits have legs meant to sit on the floor, but one has ball feet and the other has plastic caps.
A bit too big for a magazine rack, not quite big enough to be an umbrella stand. And why are there two distinct pieces?
