I bought the trunk as side table for my living room. I really like the style of the trunk and the decorative locks. The leather is soft and very easy to clean the dust off. The trunk is well build, sturdy and not too heavy (I guess about 20 pound). Decent size for the books and magazines. I would recommend to my friend.
Workmanship is pretty bad on this product. The screws for the butterfly hinges (outside) are the wrong kind so they aren't flush with the hardware. There's only one folding hinge (inside), an indication of cutting corners. The entire unit feels flimsy; the trunk will twist with the lid open. The lock did not come with a key. Because of how thin the panels are, the interior volume is quite decent. As for the aesthetic, it does look nice. This chest should not be priced at more than $75.
