Trunk shipped beautifully... UPS even brought it up to my second-floor walk-up apt. It's beautiful... I love the design, the wood is gorgeous and the metal detailing is very unique - perfect for the look I was going for... It's also super functional in an NYC 1-bedroom... holds a ton of stuff! The only problem is that it was a nightmare to assemble... dozens of miniature screws and a majority of the metal pieces (corner braces on the bottom and latches connecting top lid to trunk) did not line up with the drilled holes... it was not fun to get together at all. Also - it has weight limits on the instruction guide that I did not see mentioned on the web description... this was a bit of a bummer (for me) and if you're planning to use it as additional seating, to showcase over 30 lbs. of coffee-table paraphenalia or over 50 lbs. of "junk in the trunk"... you probably should look for something else - as these are the weight limits you learn of... after you've ordered/opened it.
- Would you recommend this to a friend? No
