We were very pleased with the chest and its size.However, the hardware rusted with the first rain and stained our decking. Every screw in the chest, the latches have rusted and we have had to clean them. We are working on finding replacements that won't rust. The lounges we purchased were the same from the Christopher Knight selection.

This is a very roomy, sturdy and good-looking storage chest. It is not water tight, but it will keep our towels dry in the summer time, also extra cushions and outdoor pillows. The chest is fairly heavy and has excellent quality hinges - the lid stays open on its own - no worries of it slamming shut. Also, the chest can be placed very close to a wall while opening the top. The only negative is that the support on the bottom of the chest could be sturdier. However,this was the best priced chest of this quality that we could find, and we are very pleased with the purchase.

It is a nice chest. The top stays up as advertised. I have ordered a lot of Christopher Knight pieces this summer and I expected this to be of the same good quality. I have been ordering the brown color to match my Frontgate items. Up until this chest arrived , they did. This is a more open weave. Much more light brown and lightweight. And of course - it is the piece right next to the Frontgate sectional I needed to match! LOL I did not return it because - well - it is big. And it is not so bad that I hate it. If I had not ordered the other CK items I would not know the difference.
I really liked the look of this deck box, but was concerned it would not keep cushions dry, so returned. Also, bottom is a pretty large open weave, do afraid it would be an invitation for mice or other critters looking for shelter. Had it been solid box with a weave on top, then I would have kept it.
