I am remodeling my home office in Old World Style and this trunk adds a fantastic looking piece to the room! I would definitely recommend this trunk to anyone who is trying for the Old World style!

I bought 3 of these for our new house. I personally assembled them and installed them. The first took a little longer than the others, but once I got a hang of it, I was able to move fast. I did need my husbands help with getting the motor portion of the fan in the bracket as it was quite heavy. Because the ceiling was high for one of the fans, I went ahead and assembled it almost 100% before hanging it into the bracket and that worked well. The light is quite dim on these - even with buying 60 watt bulbs vs what came with the fan. The fan is very quiet and remote control works great!

We could not find the instructions, so the light installation was a "figure it out as you go" project. the wood veneer was nice, but would have preferred fewer flaws in the grain. There are areas where a defect was cut out and a patch installed. Slightly annoying but the effect of the light overall is so nice, we chose to overlook it.

I was looking for a chest for a bridal shower. I was looking all over for it and finally saw this Antique Victorian Chest, I just loved it in the picture and loved it even more when it was arrived. I am going to purchase another one for myself very soon.

Love this fan! The styling was exactly what I was looking for but I was concerned about the fan blade color - thought it may be too dark. Glad I took the chance. The fan is installed in a bedroom and is ultra quiet - just the whisper of the blades - no swaying fan noise. The remote control is an awesome feature giving the ability to adjust fan speed and brightness of light from anywhere in the room.

I haven't received the trunk yet, (just ordered) but I'm totally impressed at how all this is done. The speed with when it's been shipped, the ease of checking evrything and tracking orders is a breeze. This is a first class outfit.

This is a very nice looking trunk that I got my daughter for use as a coffee table. It has great storage on the inside which is nice because she is in a small apartment. It is the perfect size and height for use as a coffee table or end table and a reasonable price. There were some reviews that said it was "flimsy" and I suppose if an adult stood or jumped on top of it, it wouldn't hold up, but that's not it's purpose. She is very happy with it and I am also pleased with the purchase.

From photo, I thought this mirror would be very elegant, and it was very pretty. The wood frame has a brushed metal (tin?) veneer. The problem for me was that the metal is bubbled all over the frame. I returned the first one I received and asked that the replacement be inspected before it was sent. The second mirror had fewer, less conspicuous bubbles. However, the corner was broken (separated at the 45-degree angle). I have decided to buy something else.

Needed something that would work over fireplace. This certainly popped with the stone veneer. I love it and it was super easy to hang. Out the box and installed in 15 minutes. Very pleased.

wanted to buy this before Christmas '09, but less than stellar reviews kept me away. more recent reviews considerably more positive so took a chance. glad i did. yes, there is a overlap seam on the veneer shade, but all shades have seams. and this one is well done. note that the metal rims do not have seams which is a big plus. the top rim is perfect, but the bottom rim is a bit wavy - wider in some areas, narrower in others. but you have to be pretty determined to let that flaw irritate you. one caution for installation: the swivel joint connecting the uppermost rod to the ceiling canopy doesn't swivel even after multiple applications of WD40. so i removed that 2" piece and screwed the rod into the canopy. just don't tighten it too much. let it wobble a bit so that the lamp can move if it is inadvertently pushed. gravity will keep it hanging straight at all other times. overall effect is very clean, crisp and contemporary, especially with the tempered glass diffuser. much better than the usual acrylic versions which tend to discolor over time. great price, too.

Easy to install, these blinds look great. The only downside is the valance veneer is a bit cheap, but no more so than most. A good value overall.

I wanted something that would look nice in my living room and still hold the grand kids toys. It does exactly that.

The lighting fixture is a steal compared to other stores. The only disappointment I have is the shade. It isn't what it appeared to be in the picture. It's like a "raw wood" veneer therefore making it appear unfinished. I put a color wash on it to make it look finished. Other than that, it's a modern fixture for the price of a simple builder generic type.

This fits perfectly over our dining room table and the wood veneer adds a great unique touch. This can go with just about any home decor style. Easy to install and would definitely recommend to anyone needing a pendant.

I use this chest to store some of my clothing and it works great for that. It's a well made chest but lightweight. This isn't something you'd store heavy items or sit on. I wanted something nice looking/decorative and functional and that's what I go.

I am pleased with the product based on it's great value. It is also very functional and serve's it purpose by storing my 7 month old boy's toys in an increasingly cluttered apartment. Also, it looks great and adds character to the space. My only complaint would be the odor that is present coming out of the box. I had read about it on other reviews, but it is something worth sacrificing for the overall value and resourcefulness of this chest.

This chest is pretty neat. Not designed for sitting on. Workmanship is good given price. Was not expecting craftsman quality. Good deal for price. Fits two large twin bed blankets easily.

Delivered as promised, but shipping costs were quite high to the UK

I have give three time capsule baby showers and have always gotten the trunks at xxxxxxx. Those trunks were fine, but don't hold a candle to these. The three trunks came nested and in perfect shape. They are so nice and seem like they will last the 18 years they need to before little junior opens his treasure chest. I do feel fortunate to have found these beautiful trunks. I'm becoming an Overstock.com fan. My kids and grandkids, even though they are older now, want their birthdays this year to be time capsules!

Love this chest. Also bought the large and have them stacked together. Perfect for storage and for decor. Quality is great, color is great. Very happy with purchase.
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.
Nothing will accent the furniture in your home quite like end tables selected to accent and complement sofas and room decor. Not only do end tables, or console tables, have the power to make the rest of your furniture sparkle; they are a functional addition to any living room. A cocktail table or some modern coffee tables make a perfect place to house reading material or room decorations, in addition to drinks for visitors. There are many reasons to pick up some end tables for every room in your home. Here are some end table facts to help you on your way.
It's not unusual for bookshelves to incorporate multiple materials for different features. If you haven't decided on wood, wood products, metal or glass bookshelves, look at their relative strengths and weaknesses. Look below to learn the best bookshelf materials. Wood: "Solid wood" is a common term for furniture made from lumber planks. Beware of making assumptions based on labels like "hardwood" and "softwood." Hardwoods are derived from deciduous trees and softwoods from coniferous trees; the terms don't connote their relative strengths. Balsa is a hardwood even though it is very soft, just as Douglas fir is a softwood even though it is very hard. They all make excellent, classic stock material for bookcases. Generally, harder woods are the heavier and more resistant to scratches. Still, softer woods, if treated correctly, will keep just as well as harder woods. Plywood: Made by stacking thin sheets -- "plies" -- of lumber and gluing them under pressure, plywood features grains that alternate direction for strength. Several grades are available, of differing cost. Top and bottom plies can be high-quality woods to create the appearance of fine woods, but edge veneer or molding is needed to complete the illusion. Particleboard: Wood chips glued together carry a much lower price tag than solid wood, and particleboard is denser and more uniform. It's a great choice when cost is the primary consideration. Bookshelves crafted from veneered composite boards can look and feel as good as real wood. MDF: Wood fibers, tiny chips and sawdust collected and glued into sheets form medium-density fiberboard (MDF). Low-cost MDF makes an excellent base for veneers; plus, its strength is consistent and it shapes well. Metal: There's a reason most library bookshelves are made from metal: Metal bookcases are resistant to moisture and fungus, their low-friction shelves are easier on books' bindings and metal's strength-to-weight ratio can't be beat. Their cost usually comes in below any other material. Glass: Glass bookshelves weigh more than other types, but if you plan on assembling your bookshelves only once, the style points can be well worth it. Tempered glass shelves (in wood or metal uprights, called "standards") give your home an unbeatable contemporary feel, and glass bookcases' smooth, transparent surfaces add brilliant levity to a decorating piece that might otherwise be notably opaque and heavy.

A bookcase is a great place to store, organize and display books as well as other personal items, like pictures, knickknacks and souvenirs. Bookshelves are pieces of functional, decorative furniture, but you may have some questions about which bookcases are right for your home. Look below to find answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about bookcases.
Of all the things you can change about your home, doors and windows make the biggest impact. Start your home improvement project with a new bedroom door. When it comes to picking a bedroom door, homeowners must consider a variety of different factors. First, they must find a door that is visually appealing and matches the decor of the bedroom and surrounding rooms. It is also important to consider things like price, installation and special features before making a final selection. By balancing price, function and aesthetics, you're more likely to find the right bedroom door for you.
Wood furniture evokes a sense of tradition, harkening back to the days when household goods were not only handmade but often also self-produced. Wood furniture comes in a variety of wood types and finishes to suit any home decor. Of the many woods used, however, there are preferences for certain types of furniture. This glossary will help you buy wood furniture by sorting out which kinds of wood are best for a particular type of furniture.
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.

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.
