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.

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.
Living in an apartment with limited space, you strive to purchase furniture that can do multiple things. Like a futon, transforming from a sofa to a bed or a dining table with a removable leaf to better compliment a smaller space. So when I came across this Nailhead Espresso Cocktail Table Trunk, I was sold! Not only does it provide storage for pillows and blankets, but itís a quality piece for a great price!
It does take some assembling (I recommend at least two people to do this job), but with my dad's help we were able to put it together in less than an hour. I love the sturdy suspension in the hinges of the trunk top, making it easy to prop it open when I need to store a number of things at a time. The wood finish looks great (an exact espresso in my opinion) and all the bronze nailheads were already in place on each side of the table. To top it off, the piece fits perfectly on my 5' x 7' rug in the living room!

What a great find!
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.
Arrived promptly as always. Requires assembly, althought not very difficult, every thing needed included.The trunk is spacious. Great for storage Design is beautiful.This piece is heavyweight and reminiscent of good grad furniture. PLUS...Made in America.would recommend to anyone.Love it.

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
