I was a little skeptical when the table came in a large flat biox, but my 13 year old and I (the Mom) put the whole table together in a couple hours. It tooks some figuring out, but we managed. I mean you have to put on everything from the hardware handles to the hinges, but it all worked out. The hinges are of the highest qualty and the chest itself seems to be a nice solid well made unit. The finished product is really quite nice and looks far more expensive than its modest cost. I store my blankets in it and am already wondering how I got along without it. I love the way it loooks in front of my sofa and would definitely recommend it . The quality for the price is pretty amazing. Love it.
Trunk looks darker in person than the photo. It was fairly easy to assemble, and looks nice. The pre-drilled holes don't match up really well with the holes on the hardware but the screws can go in relatively straight. I used a powerdrill to put the screws in because it would have taken too long and been too difficult to do. The inside and outside weight capacity is only 30lbs. The corner connections where the side and front/back pannels connect don't seem to be as strong and connect as well as I think they should. Overall, the trunk has a nice look for the price.
I purchased this after reading most all of the reviews. The color is darker, not as dark as an espresso but darker than pictured. The quality is just as described, you are not getting hardwood, nor are you paying for it. The quality is great for the price. The assembly was simple, great directions and I put it together by myself(a 57year old woman armed with just an electric screwdriver) and it took about 1.5 hours. Do beware, when you are putting the top on make sure that you lean it against an stationary object or you may damage it. After put together it is beautiful. The top is not going to be too durable so make sure to use something to protect the surface ie. coasters. The hinges are great and hold open the top securely. The hardware it comes with is handsome and heavy. I have already had many positive comments on it. If you buy this you will love it but make sure that you know it will damage easily if it is used roughly.

This table is a beautiful piece and an extremely great value. Putting it together wasn't difficult at all, but it is a lot easier to assemble if you have a small hand held drill. I would recommend this product to everyone. I'm very happy to have made this purchase, it's a great addition to my home.
Love the way my table/trunk looks w/ my traditional furniture. I feel like it bought this in Indonesia but it was shipped to me!
Putting it together will take 2 people--I will warn you on this one--and a power screw driver! I think it took 2 of us about 90 min. to put it together. But the directions are very clear and the parts are all marked A, B, C, etc. I did carefully measure the height, width and length and cut a big sample of newspaper and laid it in front of my couch, and then used my body as the height--up to below my knee--to get a sense of whether this would fit. I really like the little brass studs on the front, back and sides and seems to lighten up the heavy wood trunk that it is. I had just signed up for Omail and as I was ready to buy I rec'd a coupon in email for ** off anything--that sealed the deal. I love this table.
This trunk was shipped with so much protective packaging, there was not a single flawed piece in the box. Once put together (easier with 2 people, but can still be managed by one person), the trunk looks like a high-quality, almost heirloom piece of furniture. I am very proud to display this item in my home and it affords me plenty of extra storage for seasonal clothing and bedding. I hope anyone who purchases this trunk has the same excellent experience as me. I truly love this trunk!
It looks great, and is a good buy for its price. Though, you got to be careful with scratches/other marks on the table. The surface is not hardwood. So, if it gets a scratch or a mark, it could end up being there permanentely.
I was pleasantly surprised after we got the trunk put together. It looks mmuch more expensive than its modest price tag! It also looks great as a coffee table which is what we are using it for. We are so happy with our purchase!

The exact specs are listed in the description, but picture this: it will be a little higher than up to your knees/lap when you are sitting on your couch w/ the table in front of you - just bought it and the height is optimal.pmdz on Jun 17, 2013

It's not metal, it's HEAVY, but not metal. It's wood composite but very HIGH quality w/ great finish. Has metal accents (e.g., handles, hardware, nailheads) Just bought it - assembled it over the weekend. You will NOT be disappointed.pmdz on Jun 17, 2013
