Great to Look At.. Not Practical for Heavy Storage
 from New York, NY,  Apr 10, 2011

I loooove this coffee table trunk and have gotten many, many compliments on it. I thought it had a 50/50 chance of looking cheesy in real life from looking at the pictures online, but it really is quite nice and definitely looks way more expensive than it is. Before purchasing this trunk coffee table, I was contemplating spending almost $1500 on a comparable looking one (I quickly found out trunk tables are not cheap). Long story short though, you get what you pay for. Though it looks pretty and sturdy, this trunk doesn't withstand much weight, which is clearly stated once you have it in your hot little hands. I think it holds 50 lbs inside, and 30 lbs on top... or vice versa. I forget. I didn't think it would be that big of a deal, until I started storing heavy photo albums in it, AND every single one of my friends tries to sit on it. So if you don't mind yelling "Don't sit there!" to most of your hoodlum guests, then definitely buy it. It's pretty and classy looking, just don't expect it to be a practical storage space or seat. Unless you just plan on storing linens and such...

  • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
  • How is the quality of the product? Good, but not made for durability
  • Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Yes, except don't remember reading about the weight limitations. Knew of them only from reviews.
