Chests are great for bulky coats and clothes as well as decorative pillows, throw blankets, or even for use as a toy chest. The top middle board is flat, but the sides are angled. 36 in x 18 in x 15 in I do not know what kind of wood it is made from, and it is missing front hardware. (Though this is really not very noticeable- see picture.) On sale! Originally $275, reduced to $195!
