I just can't say enough good things about this little chest. It came in three days. It was packaged so well that it was nearly a complaint- I had quite a time getting it out of the box! But.... it came in perfect condition. It is as appears on my display, and I'm glad to say the reddish color on the front is actually less "ruby" and more of a translucent cherry- red enough for an accent but not garish in the least. This piece is made of actual wood (although the underside looks like mdf, no issue, no one's going to be climbing underneath!), wood drawers that run on rollers with guides. The assembly took me a few minutes but that was me, not the piece (you can do it by yourself, but it weighs 70-80lbs and would just be easier with another person) and it was so simple a blindfolded monkey could do it. The hand painting on the front is also very delicate, not tacky at all. The shape is traditional but not so ornate that it wouldn't fit in with other styles of design. I am SO happy with this piece that I'm considering moving it from the foyer where it sits in a staircase nook to collect the mail to someplace where it will be used and seen more frequently. It is my new favorite thing! It's size makes it perfect as a nightstand, side table in a living room, small TV stand, bathroom storage... don't hesitate if you're considering this piece. I just wish this came in more than one size, I'd buy a bigger one, too!
This is a pretty good bombe chest, I suppose for the price. Unfortunately, mine arrived damaged and because the packaging was pretty intact, I believe that it was packed with the damage. It has scars around the bottom right side which I tried to correct with a furniture marker. I'm not shipping back because it's a hassle and even though the damage is moderate, you can't really see it because of where it is. Finish is uneven on top and the stenciling is almost impossible to detect on the front. However, it was very inexpensive, so I suppose it's a decent value (had it not been damaged).
The Bombay chest is beautiful and well made. I bought two for either side of our bed and they are perfect height. Both chests were well packaged and arrived in excellent condition. Shipping time was quick and they arrived within 5 days. Terrific value for the price.
This chest is nice but not exceptional. I guess for the price I was expecting a little bit better workmanship. There were lots of little areas where the finish was missing. Used my furniture repair pens to fix it. It is something that I would recommend to a friend but let them know exactly what to expect as far as quality. After the necessary touch-ups it does look nice in my entryway where I put it. With a bouquet of flowers and a mirror over it, it has brought my entryway to life. The drawers are small but nice for extra storage which most of us need. It is mainly used by my female guests to put their handbags on when they enter my home.
This small chest fits perfectly into an alcove in my entry and is very attractive. I had looked for a Bombay chest in retail stores, but in this price range, the quality was pretty shabby. I was concerned about possible damage during shipping, but it arrived in excellent condition, due in large part to the protective way it was packaged.
