I got this Bombay chest for the bathroom to store makeup items, hair dryer, etc. Space is limited and this fits perfectly between the wall and my pedestal sink. The Bombay shape also works well with that style of sink. This is a light-weight, easy-to-move, attractive piece of furniture that looks like the image shown. It arrived well packaged and undamaged. No assembly; just take it out of the box and fill it up. Can't store large items because drawers are only 8 inches deep (front to back) and 3 inches high (except bottom drawer which is about 4 inches high). Width of drawers vary due to shape of chest. Top 4 drawers range from about 6.5 inches to 11.5 inches wide. Bottom drawer is about 12.5 inches wide at the top, but narrows toward the bottom of the drawer. Drawers open/close easily and have peg stops that keep them from being pulled all the way out. Good for avoiding spilling the contents. If you want to take a drawer out, open it and feel in the center at the back of the drawer for the little wooden peg. Turn the peg sideways to remove the drawer. When you replace the drawer, turn the peg back to its original position if you want to stop the drawer from coming out.
I purchased two of these because I wanted something unusual to use as nightstands for a bed that sits quite high. The carving is intricate and lovely and the wood is a rich warm color. You can tell it's handmade because one of the drawers doesn't open smoothly and I had to tape a penny under one of the legs for perfect balance. These were minor inconveniences to me considering they are beautifully unique and a great value.
This little chest is beautiful, functional, well-built, and a conversation piece ........ all rolled into one! I especially appreciate the ease of opening and closing the drawers. It's a very sturdy, all-wood piece; and the fact that the back is also completely finished is an unexpected plus. The carving is absolutely gorgeous - I love this item!!
I purchased this cabinet for my bathroom and it fits perfectly in the corner since it is not too big and does not overpower the space intended. The one I received has a little bit darker finish than the one pictured on the website, but that was perfect for me and the rest of the decor in the room. The drawers work well and I like the backstop feature which keeps the drawer from falling out. I had been looking for the perfect accent piece for this room for some time and am thankful I finally went on the Overstock.com website and found this little gem.
I was looking forward to this chest based on the reviews. While it's well-constructed, the finish looks nothing like the photo. Instead of a warm brown, it's a reddish color that looks somewhat cheap and does not fit the rest of my brown furniture. Even though I just got it and it's not listed as a final sale item, I cannot return it as OS has classified it as "nonreturnable" Upset that this wasn't made clear at time of purchase.
Beautiful nightstand or occasional chest. Can be used anywhere in the house. I just ordered another one! I like it!
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? It matches my Cherry wood!
- How is the quality of the product? perfect, packed extremely well~
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? it is better than the description!
This was my first furniture purchase online. I ordered this beautiful piece on a Friday morning and received it the very next day! I opened the box and pulled out the chest. No assembly required! It is absolutely gorgeous. I placed it in my guest bedroom, but could easily use it in a variety of places with its versatile look. Almost wish I would have ordered another to put in the guest bath. I would highly recommend. Thanks Overstock! This was easy and convenient and the shipping was awesome.
I absolutely LOVE this chest. It is adorable, fits in perfectly where I had intended it to be, is very well made, holds more than I thought it would, and I cannot say enough good about this product. I wish I could order 2 more of them. You will NOT go wrong by ordering this item. It came boxed so that all I had to do was pull it out of the box and begin using it---nothing to put together on it. It is beautiful and I have already taken a picture of it and put it on Facebook. Thank you for this item---I am more than pleased.
This is a beautiful piece, but fair warning, the drawers are very small. I did see the dimensions in the Q&A before I bought, but it didn't really become clear until I saw the drawers. They are tapered from top to bottom, like a bowl, so are smaller than the dimensions given. Still, it is beautiful and makes a very nice nightstand.
After reading some of the reviews I dedicated to order as night stands. These came in within 3 days from ordering very quick. They are very nice the only complain I have is that they are very small. I could only put a lamp on top, unable to fit alarm clock. They are beautiful and I still love them for the price.
I ordered this as storage for my guest bath. The drawers are a perfect size for toiletries, and the carving and details in the wood make it look very luxurious. The top is just the right size for a small vase and a box of tissues. The odd shape of the drawers makes it impossible for there to be glides, but the wood drawers fit well and move nicely. There is more storage than I expected - over all, a perfect accent piece!

Very nicely constructed dresser. To be used for jewelry. Just needs to be lined. Not compartmentalized but could easily be made if desired. A unique and nice looking solution to jewelry storage. I do not like all the laquered, fake brass, etc. that so many other manufacturers put out there. I'd recommend.
We use this in a narrow space in our front hall for keys, dark glasses, gloves. Needless to say, it gets used a lot. It is holding up well. Drawers slide in and out easily and the piece looks very nice. It is inexpensively made, but having said that, I am still pleased with the overall appearance of it.
I LOVE this piece! I'm using the pieces as a night stands in my spare bedroom. They are exactly what I imagined and are so beautiful. The carvings are elegant and the wood nice quality! I actually ordered two but only one came in. I called customer service and the representative was very helpful in processing a replacement order. Just in case the 2nd one from the original order does come in along with the replacement order, I was advised to call back and they will send me a shipment label to send the replacement back. Customer service was AWESOME and I am very happy with my purchase!
I am pretty pleased with the Bombay Chest. It is well made and very stunning. I've received several compliments.
