I have been looking for a red chest for a guest house. This one had two good reviews, and being an overstocks customer, I felt comfortable ordering it. It arrived in about a week, and when we opened the box, it appeared to be well packaged, and no damage. Of course, when we look it out and moved it into the room, it had the left rear corner that had been broken and repaired and repainted obviously in China. There was no signs of damage. Then we looked on the left size, and it was so broken, that I immediately called overstocks. They were nice, and offered a replacement, but I am afraid to try it again. This is Chinese furniture, and frankly I will not buy any of it again. The price was right, but when they start repairing damaged goods and shipping them to the US, I quit. Very unhappy.

- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Well, it was the same, but severely damaged.
I hemmed and hawed for at least six weeks about whether to buy this chest. The size, shape and seemingly sturdy quality were just what I was looking for as an accept piece in my living room The color, however, worried me. Not having other reviews to read and thinking this might just be too bright, I finally decided to go for it anyway. For me: too bright. Friends and relatives, however say it's a terrific color. Hmmmmm So.....I found furniture restorer will will paint it for $160 dollars. Worth it. It IS a sturdy, contemporary-ish piece. It arrived in perfect condition AND WAS FULLY ASSEMBLED EXCEPT FOR THE LEGS which were easy enough to screw in.
The color is a cherry red and I think represented well with the picture. The measurements are spot on and the quality is great. Nothing to complain about.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? true

I purchased this chest because of the rich color. The chest arrived badly damaged. It appeared that the chest was dropped while in transit. Overstock did a wonderful job of making the return process convenient and easy for me, considering the size of the chest. The other chest arrived within a couple of days. I checked the chest before taking the item out of the box. The corner of the chest had painting peeling, so I returned it. I guess this chest wasn't meant for me. I'm a crafty and creative person, and usually can make fixes to things, but decided against it. In my opinion, a chest shouldn't have any issues at this price point coming out of the box. Overall, the style and concept is nice, but I questioned the quality for the price.
