The basket was delivered by UPS with the wire all bent out of shape. I didn't want to have to deal with returning it so I bent it back into shape. I ordered this basket for my son's room. If the wire wasn't in it, the basket would fall apart. I compared this basket weave to the seas grass baskets I purchased from Land's End and you can see how lacking this basket is. If you don't need a filing basket, I suggest you visit Land's End and check out the baskets on that site. I was able to purchase the large baskets for $14 as they had a 40% off promotion.
Bought four of these for the home office for files. Not bad looking and seem sturdy. You do have to purchase hanging files for them, as they only have the rails. One nice thing is that they come with off white fabric liners, so once you are done with the office they can be used for storage almost anywhere. No way was I going to have a clunky metal file cabinet in my house!
while these baskets do hold files (not many as they are very narrow) and look cute, don't move them or the metal frame gouges your table or desk top! And the seagrass crumbles all over the place. Not worth the money if you really need function, but look cute from a decorative perspective.
I had purchased 8 of these (in 2 different sizes) and absolutely loved them....BUT, these last two are very dark, and not nearly as nice as the previous ones. I don't believe they are seagrass.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? darker
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. not very good quality
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? not accurate at all
I really like the file basket with liner. It is pretty small though, and I think is overpriced for the size. I would like another one, but feel its too expensive. I would have given a 5 star, except for the price. Should be at least ten bucks less.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Looks as is on Overstock
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality is good
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Description is good
The basket was much smaller than I expected. Nothing special. Its just a basket.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was fine.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality was no different from a basket I could purchase at a craft store.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? I believe the size of the basket might have been "off".
The basket is actually very pretty but much smaller than described and than in the photo. The photo shows the files going from handle to handle in what appears to be a large space. My basket actually has the files going the other direction and in only an 8" width. I had intended on getting another one for toys, but it would not have held very much. For the price I am glad that I only bought one.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
- How is the quality of the product? good
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? no
I ordered two of these baskets to go on a ladder shelf I also purchased at Overstock. One arrived in perfect condition, and one had a major dent from shipping. I was able to (somewhat) bend it back into place, but it's not perfect. As one reviewer mentioned, they are somewhat smelly when they first arrive, but the smell is no longer noticeable after a week or so. On the "pro" side: they are deep and roomy, and very attractive. They can hold about 6+ regular sized bath towels, so they fit the bill for what I needed. I wish I ordered 2 more, but they're sorta pricey.
Love them. Have been buying crappy file cabinets and baskets for years, and finally they've combined the two. I bought 2 and have them stacked on top of each other, under my Plateau Desk. Wish they were a little bit bigger, but they do fit plenty of files, and have helped us easily eliminate clutter. Will probably buy a few more. Thanks!
