I ordered two of these tables and can confirm, they smell terrible. I just opened the box today so I don't know if the smell will go away, but it is strong enough that I wonder if the finishing materials used were safe. Does Overstock perform safety checks?

Story Behind the Art
Bima Trading retains the services of various artisans spread throughout Indonesia to handcraft the furniture that we design for the United States market. These artisans work from home in their villages. Each village specializes in a particular craft and style. Bima, in conjunction with what we term a coordinator, ensures that the village production team has the timber, the drawings and the other essentials to craft the product into the specialty of that particular area. Each village has its own specialized sets of tools to complete their aspect of the crafting of the furniture. The work in progress is then moved to the next village for further enhancements which include polishing, spraying and finishing. In the final process, our coordinator will take charge of the products and have them checked, boxed and placed in the container ready for shipment to the United States. We have working under our direction, in an informal manner, some 60 artisans and their helpers. In order to maintain consistency, each batch is crafted by the same teams.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

If you have purchased Indonesian made furniture before then you understand the nuances that you can find from one piece to another. We purchased two of these and found them to be pretty consistent in terms of color, fit, and finish. The picture is quite accurate.Read More
Good size and gives the room an interesting look. Only problem is that it smells at first..very unpleasantRead More
I LOVE this table! My bedroom is country cottage with a pale green floor, soft yellow walls and my natural fiber rug( also from overstock, also a winner!) this table looks perfect. It is the right hight for my bed. It's not too large, just right. This table could be one of the most versatile pieces as it can go in any room. It's heavy and very well made. I like that is was made by different people helping to sustain families and keep artisans employed . Everyone that has seen my room has liked the table, as well as the feeling created in this room because of the decor. I always smile when I walk into my room. It truly is great to have overstock at my disposal.Read More
I'm beyond the moon on this nightstand; it is simply perfect in every way; even the way it was so carefully packed! I went back for another one, couldn't find and customer service has taken up my re-order and will e-mail me when in -- excellent service!Read More
The price was pretty good on these bed side tables. They were sturdy. One came damaged in the box but I didn't feel like returning it to Overstock so I just used some wood glue to repair the dented and broken drawer. They are the perfect size for a lamp and clock radio next to the bed. The color was not accuratelt depicted on the website as they are more yellow than off white.Read More

this item came horribly damaged, can not be repaired, looks like it was tossed off the truck a couple of times.... wood is cracked, trim is split on both from corners, top drawer wont work . Have seen better furniture sitting on the curb for the trash man. Will not trust the site for furniture.Read More
Questions & Answers
Hello akb2013, we do notice that the finish on some of our Worldstock products put off a strong smell. The product is safe it just needs some time to air out. Thank you for shopping with us.
In the description it is described as black, but the pictures are obviously a white/cream color. Anyone care to elaborate what color it really is? If white is it an antique white?
The description is incorrect the item is not black and we are working to fix that. The item is antique white with an Emily finish. Now the due to the nature of the item it still may vary from product to product cause it depends on the artisan.
I was reading the reviews on this product and it mentioned that there is a smell to the wood. Has this been corrected or is it something that goes away after it has been unpacked for a while. Thanks, Sarah
The smell most likely would have come from the finish used, and the odor should go away in a few days.
