I absolutely love this hamper. It is sturdy and has a removal laundry bag for easy washing and easily goes back into place. The color is a rich brown. Perfect in our laundry room.
To be honest, I got exactly what I thought I would for the price. The quality is average, and the color description in the title is completely and totally misleading as other reviews have commented. This hamper is black - plain and simple and in no way mahogany. We are ok with the color given its location and won't clash with our deep brown furniture elsewhere in the room. It is quite easy to put together if you do only as the instructions explain. However, I found that stability of the final piece to be average at best and not solid - again, I got what I expected for the price. I glued everything, reinforced each corner with brackets, and since we bought 3 of them, I added a solid sheet of plywood to the back and bottom to link the 3 together. In addition, I replaced the hinges with a long hinge running the length of the lid. The lid and hinges that shipped were slightly off center - horrible quality assurance in the factory in that regard - seriously bad! However, with the modifications and extra reinforcement I did, they actually look quite good and are not quite solid. I would recommend this hamper to you with the qualification that you be aware that you are getting what you pay for. This is by no means a high quality sturdy hamper on its on and the quality control from the factory is average. However, if you are handy like me, you can actually make it into a solid, decent looking sturdy piece of furniture.
We recently bought a whole new oak bed set and I thought this would blend in. My husband said it was easily assembled which is definitely a plus. However, if feels cheaply made, it's as if you might be able to get a splinter from it. Also, the color is definitely an orangish/cherry - not brown at all. We ended up keeping it out of sight in our closet. I don't feel it was worth the price I paid. You may like the color; it's just not our cup of tea.
