Story Behind the Art: This product was created in North Western India. Once the British removed its armed forces from the region in the late 40s, a majority of the industries available for the local economy disappeared with them. The indigenous people went back to the traditional crafts and furniture manufacturing that they had known for generations. Several hub cities of industry have flourished, creating numerous, sustainable, and stable jobs for the people of the surrounding villages, to augment the time in between harsh growing seasons. The industry that has been created by products like this has created an unprecedented number of schools, hospitals, and improvements in infrastructure.
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.

We ordered two for night tables although they could be used any where in the house. They are just the right height for our bed. Drawers are not on glides but have stops so they do not pull out. Finish is great. The table comes fully assembled.
The table arrived in days & in perfect condition. It's a relief to be able to order furniture that comes fully assembled! The table is very solid & measures exactly as advertised. The wood is a beautiful shade, with natural imperfections. It more than met expectations. This table is heavy & shipping would have cost a fortune from anyone else.
I have been looking for the perfect table for my spare bedroom for YEARS - and I've finally found it! It's very sturdy and well-made, and the design is very well proportioned. The reclaimed wood looks very nice. I was concerned that the nail holes and flaws in the wood would be very obvious, but I think there is just the right amount. It comes fully assembled, which was a huge bonus, and it was very well packaged to prevent damage.
Overall, I'm very happy with it, but there are a couple of things that I want to point out. First, the wood is darker than teak usually is, so it doesn't match my other teak furniture (which to me seems like the normal color of teak you see on boats). It's not a huge difference, so maybe it's just the varnish or color variation between pieces. The second thing is that it seems much smaller than I expected, even though it fits the dimensions in the description. I think it's something about the design that makes you imagine a bureau rather than a bedside table.
I settled on this table, even though it wasn't exactly what I was looking for, simply because I could not find the right size, finish, etc. in regular stores. Most new nightstands are either gigantic or very low, in a mid-century-modern sort of way.
Its appearance was very true to the photograph. The wood is fairly reddish in tone, if that matters to you. Some reviewers commented on the distressed look (hello people, what do you think "reclaimed" means?), but the pieces I received were pretty new-looking. More so, in fact, than I prefer. Any flaws had been turned to the back or inside, probably to satisfy what they imagine the American consumer would want. Again, I want a more rustic look.
So in order to age and "gray out" my pieces, I am letting them weather outside for a couple of weeks. We'll see how that goes. In addition, I am replacing the top two pulls with Chinese motif hardware, to give them a more exotic, less Shaker look.
The drawers slide OK, though I can't say as smoothly as those on glides. The only real drawback is that the drawers are not very big. For many people, that might not matter. But if you keep lots of books and magazines in your nightstand, you'll have to pare down.
Still, at 25", these are a nice height for those who dislike tables that loom higher than your bed. Overall a good value for the price.
Really beautiful. It's not cheap, but it's worth it for the beauty of the wood alone. The drawers work well, the whole thing is very simply constructed, but solid. Mine also had a nick in one corner as other reviewers mentioned, but I think this happened before shipping, as it was quite well packed with supports on the corners. The slight damage is not noticeable when in place as a bedside stand, and it doesn't bother me. I really love this table and wish there were other pieces that coordinated (other than the three drawer version). Please stock more like this, Overstock!
This is a very nice small chest which appears to have good workmanship in the value of the piece. It was perfect for the corner I needed it to be placed for the location. I am pleased with my purchase of this item.
Now I have two four drawer side tables in the bed room on each side of the bed (and another three drawer one near a lounging chair). They are sturdy, real wood and rustic. Perfect for everyday use, which I like.
This is a great little teak side table. The photo is a bit deceiving in the way it is styled, so be SURE to check the measurements. It is quite small for a bedside "chest" To give you an idea, the top drawers would fit pens/pencils.
That being said, it's a nicely crafted piece of furniture, was packaged with tremendous care & happily comes fully assembled! I really like the wood, but may change out the the handles further down the road. I'd recommend this table if you've got a small space to fill, but it's not really functional as a chest for clothes. I bought it as a closet alternative for my guest room, and unfortunately it's much too small to use for clothing. The bright side is that it's a versatile piece, so we'll find use for it elsewhere!
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes- Great coloring!
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Really solidly assembled piece of furniture!
How accurate was the sizing? Accurate measurements, although the photo is styled to make the table look much bigger than it is

What kind of joints are used in this furniture? The person who wrote the worst review implied that the joinery may be amateurish. Do they use any dovetails, laps, or mortises or are they mostly all just butt joints?kkingcqe on Aug 24, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your interest. The main structural joints in this nightstand are mortise and tenon joints. The rest of the joints are dado joints.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 29, 2012
