This comes close to being Excellent, but the hardware which comes with it is of very poor quality. Three pieces broke and there was a note on a package of wood screws that said don't use the wood screws on the inside - use these instead. Unfortunately for me, I missed that package until much later because it wasn't with all the other hardware. I ended up installing four additional brackets (not supplied) to ensure it would not fall apart in use. Once done it looks great.
looks great. happy with quality overall. the sides loosen occasionally, but that may be due to overstuffing on my part. great color, matches almost perfectly to the chocolate west elm & ikea furniture.

I was very disappointed with this product. It was challenging to try to put together and I am usually adept at putting things like this together. I gave up and put it back in the box and returned it.

When I viewed this hamper online, it looked like a quality piece. However when I received it, I was very disappointed. It arrived in a flat box, clearly a "Some assembly needed" type of unit. The parts were not of high quality and the unit was very disappointing for the price I paid.
Very cheap materials are used in this. Holes are drilled improperly, causing the pieces to fit together incorrectly. Once I completed assemply the unit wobbled, as the legs are not properly aligned. Screws for top are too long (even came with replacement screws that were shorter than the original ones, but they were also too long). Overall a poor quality product that I would not recommend to anyone.
I bought this hamper because it looked really nice online but once it was delivered, I was disappointed. The hamper is made out of cheap material and will not last so I returned this item. You do better buying a wicker basket as I have had mine over a year now.
To be honest, I got exactly what I thought I would for the price. The quality is average, and the color description in the title is completely and totally misleading as other reviews have commented. This hamper is black - plain and simple and in no way mahogany. We are ok with the color given its location and won't clash with our deep brown furniture elsewhere in the room. It is quite easy to put together if you do only as the instructions explain. However, I found that stability of the final piece to be average at best and not solid - again, I got what I expected for the price. I glued everything, reinforced each corner with brackets, and since we bought 3 of them, I added a solid sheet of plywood to the back and bottom to link the 3 together. In addition, I replaced the hinges with a long hinge running the length of the lid. The lid and hinges that shipped were slightly off center - horrible quality assurance in the factory in that regard - seriously bad! However, with the modifications and extra reinforcement I did, they actually look quite good and are not quite solid. I would recommend this hamper to you with the qualification that you be aware that you are getting what you pay for. This is by no means a high quality sturdy hamper on its on and the quality control from the factory is average. However, if you are handy like me, you can actually make it into a solid, decent looking sturdy piece of furniture.
