"I love the look of this piece, but its finish is so fragile, if you get it put it in a safe place! We have had this for a year, it is so gorgeous, but the finish is so delicate and chips easily to show the light wood underneath. I have it in a formal entry where it gets little use, but still it has been scraped up a number of time (a guest setting down car keys, bump of a vase being picked up, etc) so sad for something so pretty."
"This is definitely a statement piece, and the inside of the drawers are lined with a very beautiful finish. Remember that the finish scratches easily though and sometimes the bottom drawer on mine doesn't close all the way without being slightly lifted. I have used it in a couple different places in 2 different apartments and really like it!"
"We purchased this piece for our entryway which has a swallow wall. This piece fit perfectly. It arrived with a few scratches that I noticed and my husband did noy(he picked it up). Scratches were minor so did not want to deal with an exchange process. Overall, happywith this purchase"
"I absolutely love this chest! It adds character to our very practical bedroom. The only negative is that the lining has been peeling from the edges in a few spots ever since it arrived. Overall, a fabulous piece."
"I purchased the Avery Bombe chest for a spare bedroom. At first, I found it to be pricey, but it's worth it. The black wood is sleek and beautiful. The styling and curvy shape gives it character, with a quirkiness I can only describe as "Tim Burton"-esque. At the same time, however, the look is very timeless. As to function, the chest is sturdy, the drawers open and close smoothly, and the pattern inside the drawers provides an extra pop of charm that you weren't necessarily expecting.
My only criticisms were that the top surface seems like it could scratch easily if you're not careful (it hasn't yet), and the piece had a strong wood/chemical smell when it arrived, but that has since gone away.
Aside from its very unique and gorgeous look, I purchased this piece because of its versatility. I know I will be able to use it in various other locations of my house should I ever decide to move it. Highly recommend!"
"We purchased this bombe chest last Winter and it's held up beautifully! The chest is definitely a staple piece and could go with any decor style. We have it staged in our Master Bedroom with a silver tray atop displaying our cologne and parfum collections-TIMELESS! I'd say the only negative I can find is that the piece is black and therefore shows dust very easy, therefore I have to clean it more often to keep it looking beautiful, but it's worth it!"
"I love my bombe chest. It is a nice statement piece in my room and the finish is beautiful."

"The bombe chest is gorgeous! The chest is well made and looks beautiful in my bedroom. I couldn't be happier with my purchase -- Crate and Barrel products are wonderful and I especially appreciate their great customer service. The delivery was flawless!"
"Absolutely love this! Wish I had bought it sooner. Using it in my dining room to store linens, candles, etc. But it can easily be moved to living room, hallway or bedroom and work perfectly there as well. Well made, solid piece with excellent lines and style that complements other furniture because it is so classic."
"We purchased the Avery Bombe chest after searching high and low for an entry way piece of furniture. We could not find anything item as nice and elegant as the Avery Bombe chest. We get complemented all the time on the piece. We love it and know it will last a very long time."
"It is a beautiful looking and I love it in my bedroom. However, it is not constructed that well. The wood is soft and damages easily. The knobs are not that secure . I love the look, but expected more for the price."
"high price point for a bedside table but 2 of these by a large queen or king size bed really pop and are a unique twist to otherwise small and relatively non-functional bedside tables. Ample storage, stylish, easy to clean. Soft finish that scratches easily."
"This chest is gorgeous. It has really change the look of the room with the soft curves and elegant finish. I am glad I measured beforehand to make sure it fit the space as the picture on the website makes it seem smaller than it is. This is a piece of furniture I will love for a long time."
