What Makes The Farmhouse Painted 10 Drawer Merchants Chest - Ivory Great

I bought this to replace a family heirloom - a chest of drawers in the bedroom that had succumbed to woodworm. Because that had been so precious, I didn't imagine I was going to feel as drawn to another piece of furniture. However, this 10-drawer chest is not only beautiful but does far more than the old chest of drawers could ever do. I have never been so organised in my life, and that pleases me no end. So why just four stars? Well, as was mentioned in a number of other reviews, the wicker baskets don't glide smoothly over the felt runners and I think this is a design feature that could be improved on. It doesn't spoil the look but can sometimes make putting a basket back in place a bit of a fiddle. The fact that the back is flimsy and stabled on has also been mentioned in other reviews and I accepted this when ordering because the price has to be taken into consideration, and this deserves 5 stars for value. If this had a solid back (and who's looking?) and Cotswold were selling at the same price, someone's human rights and dignity would have to be at risk - let's always remember that someone has to make the items we buy, someone has to retail them, and they have to be delivered (in my case, very efficiently) and every one along the way deserves a fair wage. So - I am very happy with my purchase

If I am honest I was slightly disappointed when I received this product. I had ordered it in mid February and didn't receive it until early May so around a 3 month lead time which I think is a long time to wait for a product. When the item arrived the baskets were individually wrapped in cardboard to stop them falling out in transit, but it was such a tight fit it was really difficult to get some of the baskets out and in the process some of the plastic runners got dislodged making it difficult for the baskets to then slide in and out. The chest seems to be smaller in reality than it is online aswell. That said my hall is so much tidier as shoes are neatly stored away now! Overall didn't feel as pleased with the product as I thought I would.

Great piece of furniture and as usual absolutely fantastic delivery service from The Cotswold Company. I was kept informed throughout the delivery process and when the guys arrived they couldn't have been more professional or helpful, first class! The piece is lovely, exactly as described and very well built. The only criticism I'd have as per some other people, it would have been a lot better to have actual shelves under the baskets. It's sometimes fiddly to get the baskets to slide back properly and sit in place. Shelves under the baskets would have made the chest perfect. A little expensive for what it is... I should have waited a couple of weeks for the sale!

4

After waiting three months for the chest upon unpacking it I was really disappointed. I specifically bought the chest to house all our shoes in the hallway and so checked the measurements of the baskets as stated on the website to make sure our shoes would fit. However, the baskets are a good 6-8cm too short and looking in the compartment a small block of wood has been stuck on the runner to stop the basket going in to the back of the unit, hence none of our shoes fit, except in the bottom basket and then the shoes would fit across the basket. Sadly I have had to return the chest and obtain a refund. Very disappointed customer but service from company was good.

5

I am extremely pleased with this unit. Having read previous reviews about build quality I was expecting something considerably less sturdy. As it is, it is a very solid piece of furniture and the baskets are quite robust and uniform in appearance. The back of it is not finished well (but as I have it against a wall, that does not matter) and the internal shelf bases are not solid but neither of these things are an issue to me. It would be more expensive if those things were altered. I think it is excellent for the price. It is the second piece of furniture I have bought from this company and I will be returning for more.

5

I purchased this item to go in my hallway. I needed something where I could put shoes that wouldn't be cluttering up the floor. I am so pleased with this drawer chest. The bottom two baskets take the shoes great and the other draws are used for dry umbrellas, torch for outside and numerous other things which I can store without show. The chest is sturdy and heavy, the baskets run in and out quite freely and overall I am very happy with it. The delivery was excellent and the guys even unwrapped it for me.

4

I am delighted with my 10 drawer chest, I spent hours trying to find shoe storage for my family of four and decided this might be the best option for us. The chest is fairly heavy, it was clean and delivered well packaged. The delivery company were excellent at communicating with me. The baskets are a good quality and strong. I am really pleased and whilst a little expensive for shoe storage in the end things are tidy, the chest is smart, so I am happy.

3

We were pleased that we didn't have to wait too long for delivery and the front of the drawers is good quality but disappointed with the back of the unit which is a flimsy bit of wood, was chipped in several places & my husband had to reattach it. To be fair we did not contact customer services as we didn't want to wait 12 weeks for a replacement. Cost wise this is very similar to other products out there which I think is expensive for what you get

5

Nice piece of furniture. Delivered intact. Bought to replace older wood effect chest of drawers in same design also bought from Cotswold 10 years ago. Time will tell whether the paintwork scratches or the baskets suffer moisture damage as they are located in bathroom. The wicker baskets on our old furniture is different to the ones in the new pieces. They are softer so less likely to scratch the shelves, but may absorb moisture more.

3

Overall I am happy with the product, it does the job I wanted it to do, however I am somewhat disappointed by the way the drawers sit on the funny runners. The baskets all seem to lean to one side or another, its as if they are not quite wide enough at the base. I am also glad I purchased it in the sale as I would not have been prepared to pay anymore for it as the back panel is not solid wood and appears to be very thin.

5

Very happy with the purchase, the colour is a light cream which is what I wanted. The baskets are sturdy and dont have that odd seagrass smell! The delivery was excellent, very helpful and they kept me informed of the progress of the delivery. They unpacked the item and took away the rubbish. The chest looks great in my conservatory, I felt the size and build quality was worth the price.

3

A bit cheap-looking to be honest, not as good as it looked in the catalogue and on-line. Baskets made of very hard wicker that did not have a natural look. I would have kept it as we are desperate for storage space and had waited for weeks and weeks for it to be delivered. However my husband was not at all happy with the overall quality and look versus the price so the chest was returned.

5

I bought this for my daughter who is delighted with it. we read the feed back about the runners and decided to go with it and make adaptions if needed. I agree with what is said but both her and I are happy with it. Am pleased to have known beforehand though or might have felt disappointed. Apart from that it is lovely and she is happy with drawer runners. looks nice and is practical.

5

I received both pieces of furniture after waiting 5 weeks for the delivery. When we eventually unpacked it after decorating the bedroom we found the front left hand corner was damaged. A replacement has been ordered and will take another 4 weeks. I am hoping the delivery men will unpack it for checking as it took us a long time to remove all the packaging. A little disappointing.

5

I had been looking for a unit that would fit my small kitchen, and this looks great and matches my other cream units perfectly, and it looks great. This is the third piece of furniture I have bought from Cotswold and they have never disappointed. The delivery men were polite and helpful, they even took away all the packing materials which was a real bonus. Well done Cotswold.??

5

Very pleased with this item. It is well built and it looks good too. Using it to store shoes in, and I would prefer it if the top baskets were slightly larger for my purpose. Lots of good comments received from visitors to the house. I cannot fault the service we received. We were kept informed as to when it would be delivered and it arrived on time. Will recommend to friends.

4

This product was out of stock when I ordered but I was kept informed regularly about the delivery date. The unit looks very good in our new kitchen and I am pleased with it. The only reason I did not give 5 stars was because 3 of the baskets had sharp pieces sticking out of them. I contacted the Cotswold Company and they resolved the problem to my satisfaction.

5

We're delighted with our Merchants Chest. Having 10 basket 'drawers' of three different sizes has solved some storage problems and the two large bottom baskets are ideal for keeping our 2 year old grandson's toys in. When he comes to our house he can safely pull out the baskets and get his toys out - as well as putting them away before he goes home!

5

We are delighted with this chest. We bought it for our home in Portugal and it's arrived today. It travelled well thanks to the packaging and looks great in our hallway. It houses all those things that get left by the front door and so we've killed two birds with one stone .. we're tidy and we've gained a good-looking, sturdy piece of furniture !

5

We first bought one of these 6 years ago. 3 kids and a puppy later it was looking a bit worn and chewed ... The new one seems better quality than the old one. There is a back to it and kind or glider things for the drawers to run on that the old one didn't have. We use it to store toys and various children's things. Looks great in our lounge.

4

I love this chest! It looks great in my family room! I had a small problem which customer services dealt with as soon as I mentioned it. One of the bottom baskets makes a slight grating sound when I pull it out but other than that I love love love it! It is such a pretty way to store things. I'm now saving up for the matching tall boy! :)

4

We like the look of the chest very much and the construction is solid. We would say that the only flaw is the way that the wicker baskets pull in and out on felt runners. They do not run smoothly and will probably be susceptible to more wear and tear than if they could slide smoothly on a completely wooden shelf surface.

5

The chest is very nice - but it was poorly packaged and the corner was broken off due to damage during transport. This is very disappointing having waited 3 months for it. You are replacing it - but that's another 3 month wait. You really need to make your packaging more robust to protect the corners of the item.

5

Good quality furniture...comes already assembled ..The delivery guy was nice & polite & friendly.Delivery was fast and my choice of day and they came within the time scale given... I keep the bottom 2 storage boxes for the grandchildrens toys and the others for my nick-nacksI would highly recommend this company

5

Bought this item to store shoes and hats, scarves and gloves. It looks beautiful in my entrance hall. Although had to wait 10 weeks for delivery, The Cotswold Company were very good about emailing me every two weeks to keep me posted on expected delivery dates. Would definitely buy from this company again.

5

We are very pleased with our purchase although we did discover some damage on one corner. Having sent a picture to the company we were offered a very good discount and decided to buy another piece with that discount. The company have been superb and we would certainly think of buying from them again.

5

Build quality is exceptionally poor. Chipped, splintered with gaps in joins.Baskets are weak and damaged and instantly scratched the wood upon first usage.Not atall happy with product. Over priced and more suited to Argos quality! I am awaiting a response to the photos sent to Rebecca West .

4

The inside of the drawers are a bit rough and sharp but otherwise its just what I wantedI was rather disappointed that just after I'd placed my order it was 'on sale' - bad timing for me I guess!Pre-delivery and delivery notifications were excellent and it arrived looking perfect. Thanks

5

So glad we got this- its been absolutely perfect for our toddlers bedroom. Fits all her clothes in and keeps everything separated nicely. As its a loft room we were worried about getting solid drawers that would stick in the summer and this has been the perfect compromise.

5

Well made,solid and sturdy . Good finish. Slightly disappointed that baskets hold less than I anticipated. Managed to get in sale with extra 10% off so happy with price paid. Put in grandsons playroom, certainly helped to hide the toys and looks good. Happy with purchase

4

Bought for use as shoe storage and has not disappointed. Can get at least 6 pairs of mens shoes in the large basket. The unit is very well made and the baskets look good. This is a flexible piece of furniture, I can imagine it being used for a variety of storage purposes.

5

I'm really pleased with this lovely chest - it looks lovely in my cottage sitting room and holds lots of the bits and pieces you can never find when you want them!It is very well made, the finish is excellent and the wicker drawers seem strong and capacious. Thank you!

5

I was absolutely delighted with my purchase. I had to wait a while for delivery which l was aware of. It was well worth.the wait. The update information was excellent. The delivery pro ess was also excellent. I would have no hesitation. In recommending your company

3

Lovely looking unit but the design is slightly odd. The baskets have runners which they sit on rather than a solid shelf which means you have to be very careful to align correct when sliding back in. We may add in a solid piece to stop them falling off the runner.

5

So worth the money its really good quality and the baskets are not flimsy and smell lovely Excellent delivery and worth paying for it to be unpacked and took upstairs If you looking for a good strong unit I would recommend this to anyone five stars ?? From me

5

I'm very pleased with the quality of my ivory merchants chest it was delivered on time, never have to worry about damage, excellently packaged, very good quality and looks stylish in my entrance hall, will be ordering from this company again. Thankyou, Linda.

5

Love this Chest - our 2nd one! Also have other products in this range. Packaged well on delivery. Have this one in my daughter's room for storing shoes, dress up bits, art stuff, hair ands, toys etc. Well made & looks lovely. Can't recommend it highly enough!

4

This is a beautiful piece of furniture and looks great in my dining room. I've deducted one star because the wicker baskets have a tendency to jam occasionally when pulling them out. Also they wouldn't be suitable for storing anything too heavy in them.

5

Looks lovely. Bought for the conservatory. Baskets are a good size and sturdy. (On arrival one basket was slightly damaged, but Customer Services was OUTSTANDING and a replacement was sent the next day!) Highly recommend the product and the company.

5

Just love this drawer chest. It is so well made & the individual drawers are perfect for all my bits & bobs around the kitchen! I finally feel like I'm getting organise. The addition of the felt to stop the baskets scratching on the wood is superb.

5

Bought this for my daughter in her new house. Looks great at the bottom of tge stairs near her front door. Plenty of drawers to put all her bits and pieces in. Great piece of furniture and great value for money too . Very pleased with purchase.

5

I love this! BUT there are sharp ends inside the boxes which have snagged my clothing! My mother is currently making linen linings for the boxes in order to protect my clothes.How about making some pretty linings to sell with the boxes?

5

Im absolutely thrilled with my Merchants Chest, chosen to keep all my bathroom clutter tidied away. It has given me far more pleasure than I had expected, and for a couple of days I kept walking in to the bathroom just to look at it!

5

So happy with these drawers. Great solid quality and really practical. Bought them for my 3 year olds bedroom so now she has a draw for each type of clothing so she can choose her own clothes. These work perfectly and look great too.

5

Very pleased with chest - easy on the eye! My only criticism is that the wicker baskets aren't quite as strong as those in previous items I've bought from you and tend to stick a little going in/out. Excellent service as usual!

5

Absolutely love my drawer set which we use in our toy room for the kids, arrived in perfect condition and had the bonus of upgrading my delivery! Will definitely be ordering again and have already picked out my next purchase!

4

Unfortunately mine was delivered damaged & I'm still waiting for the replacement. The baskets look to be of good quality but in this particular colour any small scuff shows. Looking forward to getting the replacement.

5

Gorgeous, solid piece of furniture. Well made, brilliant design, the whole thing including the baskets are super sturdy... Well worth the money and we are very pleased with our new furniture. Just take all my money.

5

Excellent service and communication from this company. The chest was as nice as I had hoped it would be, lovely cream colour and very accommodating with its 10 wicker baskets. Looks really lovely in my bathroom.

5

Very pleased with my purchase of theFarmhouse Painted Merchants Chest.It fits perfectly in my kitchen & provides storage for all sorts including my vegetables!Very easy web site to use & delivery was first class.

5

I did wonder if this chest would be a little small for the intended place but it looks absolutely fab! I love the baskets, the storage size, the finish and great quality, just might buy some more matching items!

5

Looks brilliant. Very well made. Compliments to all at Cotswold. Ordered on Thursday - Delivered on Friday. From start to finish everything has been of the very highest standard. Would recommend and use again.

5

I am very pleased with this item of furniture, it looks great. The only slight disappointment was the amount of time from order to delivery - nearly three months - which was quite a lot longer than I expected.

5

I bought this chest to tidy up the kids' toys. It looks great in the room and the ten drawers have enabled me to sort and separate the toys - all their lego fits easily into one of the two largest drawers.

5

Such a lovely piece! Ended up buying other 3 pieces from the collection. Cant wait for them to arrive (unfortunately its currently out of stock, so will have to wait 4-8 weeks for them to arrive :(( ). Eliza

4

Generally pleased. Waited for it to come back into stock. Patience paid off. Should not be advertised with wicker baskets when they are now an alternative and less strong material ie see grass or similar.

5

Really lovely piece of furniture, I am very happy with it. Long term I hope that pulling the drawers over the painted surface will not cause scratches, this hasn't happened at all yet so hopefully not.

5

Absolutely love my new storage unit. Looks gorgeous in my living room and very hand for storing toys in. Delivery and service was spot on. Great value for money too. Would definitely recommend it. ????

5

This chest is needed to hold all those bits and pieces that end up in the hallway, including odd pairs of shoes. A nice sturdy little chest with useful baskets. I think it will fulfil our requirements

5

I waited a long time for this item and have been disappointed by the quality and finish. Rough joints, baskets that are misshapen and are difficult to open to name a few of the issues with this item.

5

Excellent delivery service the best we have ever had. I love the drawers, perfect for my bedroom. I have two other pieces of furniture from Cotswold and wouldn't hesitate in buying more if required.

5

Exactly what we wanted, very sturdy construction & excellent finish. A first class delivery team who positionedq it just where we wanted it. It is now fulfilling the function we had selected for it.

4

Very nice chest of drawers, like it a lot. I was impressed by customers services: one of the baskets had a slight fault and they sent me a replacement without quibbles within three days. Brilliant.

5

Great looking furniture item, exactly what we were looking for to keep shoes,gloves etc out of site i in the hallwayWould recommend the company as it was delivered on time and in perfect condition

3

Very nice unit, however some of the baskets were tatty with loose ends, more attention is needed with these as Im not sure they will age well, I would of liked a few of them replaced to be honest.

5

Love it. I've already got one and it's a really good-looking storage and has turned my very dull study (previously equipped with nasty office style furniture) into a room I want to spend time in.

4

Excellent piece of furniture. Very well packed and delivered by a great team who arrived when they said they would. Delighted with the service from Cotswold, definitely my go to furniture company

5

Great narrow depth piece. Excellent quality. I preferred the previous wicker baskets over the sea grass but a lovely piece all the same. Excellent for hiding away bits and bobs. Would recommend!

5

Lovely piece of furniture, ideal for the price, wanted baskets for in laws who didn't want heavy drawers, they are very pleased with it and it looks lovely in their front room. Would buy again.

5

An attractive piece that sits nicely beside farmhouse ivory TV unit in our sons' playroom . The drawers fit plenty toys and art materials and I hope to reuse it when the boys outgrow a playroom

5

HI THEREWE ARE VERY PLEASED WITH OUR PURCHASE. EVERYTHING WAS GOOD ....DELIVERY WENT SMOOTHLY SO THANK YOU SO MUCH. THE MERCHANTS CHEST HAS ALREADY BEEN MUCH ADMIRED.BEST REGARDSIRIS PARROTT

4

A useful piece of furniture for all my craft bits and pieces and attractive to look at - only detrimental comment is that some of baskets are not a very good fit. Would shop at Cotswold again.

5

A very nicely made and practical piece of furniture. Will look good in any room without being too intrusive. The baskets are quite roomy, even the smaller ones offer up great storage space.

4

Happy with the product, about what I expected, would be better however if the baskets stood on solid full length pieces of wood instead of trying to balance the baskets on little runners.

5

Great piece of furniture looks lovely exceptional storage.Would highly recommend it to all friends and familyVery pleased with service from ordering to delivery will be ordering again.

3

The chest is well made and sturdy. Unfortunately the baskets on the top layer are too small for the runners and you have to balance them carefully otherwise they drop off at the back.

3

the build quality of the 10 drawer chest could be better, particularly the back. the baskets run on very crude runners, but...from the front it looks good and everyone remarks on it.

4

Really like this product, something a bit different. Surprised how roomy the wicker baskets are, only downside is that because they are handmade some of them fit better than others.

5

This is perfect for my sewing room. The small baskets are ideal for scissors, pins, needles and quilting tools. The other baskets hold a surprising amount of fabrics. Delighted.

5

Superbly packaged, prompt delivery, exceptional service, fantastic delivery service with all packaging removed and chest put in position. Quality product, good value for money.

5

Superb storage option for a hallway. Good vfm. Arrived very quickly, superb delivery service. Drivers asked if we wanted items unpacked. Will definitely buy more of this range

5

I love this chest of Drawers - I already had one and found it so versatile and long lasting (despite the best efforts of our children!) that I got another for my sons bedroom.

5

Generally good although we did have our phone unit on top of it but the rubber feet have marked the top and we can't get it off so the finish on the wood must be very porous.

5

So pleased with drawer chest, perfect in my hall for shoes keys umbrellas. Everything away neat and tidy. Plus it looks so smart and modern. Really well made. Im very happy

4

Very pleased with our merchants chest. It arrived perfectly and wish I had bought it a while ago as it holds our trainers , shoes, hats and gloves etc . Looks very stylish.

5

Delivered on time and taken upstairs to be put into position in the bedroom. Looks good and is very useful for all my T shirts, jumpers etc that had nowhere to go! lovely.

5

Disappointed. This is the second unit I have bought and the first was much better quality. Baskets are not as strong, and one basket does not fit the aperture properly.

5

Absolutely love this unit. It looks brilliant in my hall, perfect baskets to hide all those bits away! Lots of guests have commented on it and asked me where i got it from

5

So much storage space in these gorgeous baskets! Its a really handy size too and fits in narrow spaces, whilst still having lots of storage. Perfect for shoes & toys too!

5

Very pleased with this piece of furniture does exactly what I wanted it to do. Delivered on time and to the exact spot where I needed it but that was just happen chance.

5

Really pleased with this piece. Hood quality, sturdy, substantial drawers that are easy to open and close.The different size drawers are so useful. Highly recommended.

3

It was smaller than I pictured, but is sturdy and does the job I wanted. Biggest problem was delay in delivery fro the original given date with no explanation as to why.

4

Waited a while for the item and then it actually came quicker than expected. Packaging really robust, everything in good condition. Lovely ,useful piece of furniture.

5

Another good product. We were told when to expect delivery and it arrived on time. All products we have bought from the Cotswold Company have been very well packed.

5

Absolutely love this piece! Fabulous quality and great value for money. I couldn't recommend the CotswoldCo enough and will definitely be shopping with them again.

5

We love this chest. Very sturdy and nice size drawers. We use it in my daughter's play room, and each drawer has toys in it. Good service too from the company.

5

Really pleased with this chest. We have it in our hallway and it holds all the hats, gloves, shoes, kids cars, school bags etc. Solid build and quality piece.

5

Perfect! Exactly what I wanted for the kids shoes, scarves, gloves etc. The drawers are sturdy and the quality is great. Looks really good too. Very pleased.

5

The description and measurement was crucial to the placing of the chest of drawers and proved to be completely accurate and therefore exactly what we wanted.

4

As described in the brochure. Slight differences to our previous purchase from this range but fitted the space perfectly. Delivery was efficient and on time.

3

Disappointed with the quality of the materials used, particularly the cardboard back. However it fits nicely into the space and is useful for hiding clutter.
