I am very pleased with the Treasure chest. I was looking for a smaller size trunk to serve as a coffee table and this fits the bill. It came assembled which is a plus for me. I would recommend it, it looks exactly as pictured.

I like the size of the trunk and its colors, however the hardware for the decorative lock arrived broken. The colors are shades of brown. They appear more grey in the picture

If you're looking for an inexpensive decorative trunk, that is still good quality, I don't think you can do better than this one. If you're expecting an heirloom quality, solid vintage trunk, this isn't it. Look at flea markets or antique dealers for that. With Overstock, however, you can get a decorative trunk that is still of good quality. It's light weight, easy to move, and looks great in my office. I use it to store blankets, and not heavy things. So, be mindful of the purpose that you want this piece to fulfill, and understand that you're getting an inexpensive trunk, and not a heavy piece of furniture. I think I got a good deal for the money.

I bought these 4 trunks for my new home. I am using the largest one for a toy chest and the other two stacked for an end table. The smallest one was a bit of a disappointment as the top panel is upside down, meaning when you look at the top while closed with the opening toward you the picture on the top is not also toward you like it should be and is on all of the others. I decided it was not worth sending all of these back so I just placed the smallest one on a top shelf where you do not see the top. I am glad it happened to that one and not to one of the larger trunks. Otherwise I loved the sizes and they are all pretty sturdy! A real conversation piece and can hold quite a few items!

Although I loved the chest, it looked wonderful in my husband's man's room, it was made of warped wood and would not sit evenly on the floor and the lid did not sit on the trunk due to the warped wood. Sadly the trunk fit my needs but I will not order another one as I do not want to take the chance to receive another one with the same issues. I will say that once I contacted Overstocked they immediately sent me a return label for me to send it back and once they received it back I did get a refund.

The trunk looks great. The decorative details really make it a lovely piece for a living room, family room or bedroom. It fits a down comforter and several pillows. It is lightweight and not meant for heavy storage or as a seat. Very pleased with the purchase.

Reasons for return: 1) Item POORLY made, EXTREMELY flimsy and PACKED ALREADY DAMAGED. 2) Low grade stain used made the inexpensive wood look greenish. 3) Stain rubs off onto hands. 4) Nail pops occurred inside trunk on support pieces. 5) Decorative clasp on front was bent and in pieces.

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.

This trunk's quality is so much better than I expected. Beautiful cedar interior. I love it!

We received items in time. They are good chests. The biggest two chests are heavy but we are not moving them around. We store shoes in them.

This is a nice chest. It wasn't large enough for what I needed so I had to return it. If it had been larger I would have kept it.

this trunk is just what I needed since I live in a small apartment with very little storage

Great trunk for storing picture albums. Lots of room inside and looks great in the guest room. Thanks

Not much too it, looks just like the picture. It's wood inside. The buckles are decorative, so the leather straps have snaps.

The description of this chest said "Antique Red", and the picture showed a red chest. There is nothing red about this thin, flimsy chest. Very dissatisfied.

I'm using this trunk to hold my sewing machine and accessories, but also as an accent piece in my living room. Perfect for a small apartment and it sits next to a family heirloom 100 yr old piano. Very nice style and well made.

The trunk arrived promptly and without damage. It was exactly how it was pictured and described on the site, and it was of better quality than I expected. It is large enough to hold our extra sheets and towels, and the interior is sanded smooth, so there are no worries about picks or tears. I am very pleased with this trunk.

Bought this trunk to be used as a coffee table in a small reading room. The size is perfect and the trunk is beautiful. It is exactly the look i was going for and the price was much less than i had been finding other places. The quality is good. Obviously not a real steamer but then again neither is the price. The buckles and the latch on the front are functional. There is a raised pattern on the "leather" part of the trunk that gives it additional texture. Nice and deep inside. Will be good for holding pillows, linens, etc.
Traditionally, a young and newly married couple would receive a hope chest, often made of cedar, filled with the items they needed to establish their home together, such as linens, crockery and oil lamps. In fact, the Amish originally called this customary gift a wedding chest. Today, these trunks and chests are often given to young women when they leave home. Mothers fill this storage chest with both practical and sentimental items, including heirlooms and necessities for college or marriage. Beginning the cedar chest tradition in your own home just takes a little bit of time. The following tips will help you fill a hope chest for your own children.
If you've filled your closet with dresses and coats, a bedroom chest might be what you need to house your additional clothing. A bedroom chest is an efficient and stylish way to fold clothes or other items and keep them close at hand. A chest of drawers adds storage space wherever you need it, and it gets the job done in style.
Many homes lack adequate storage space. And without places to put everything you own, many items either get left out in the open or buried deep within a closet where you can't find them when you need them. Fortunately, there are many pieces of furniture that provide you with storage solutions without compromising style.
Bedding can be bulky and inconvenient to store, especially if you have several sheet sets and blankets for multiple beds in the house.

Keep your sheets and comforters organized and out of the way by storing bedding correctly and efficiently. Look below to learn the best ways to store bedding.
