I have been re-decorating my room these days, so I was looking for a small colourful cabinet to add some colour element to my room. I looked around on many shopping portals online but I didn’t like anything until I visited Pepperfry.com. I immediately placed an order for this cabinet. This is my first furniture item from an online shopping portal.
First of all, let me tell you that this is actually meant to be a shoe rack for kid’s room but I ain’t using this to store shoes. No way! I am using this shoe rack to store bed sheets, towels, and other small stuff. It also has a drawer to store socks and other accessories. I’m using the drawer to store clutches and small purses.
My order arrived in about a fortnight. Pepperfry provides furniture assembly so that’s a relief. The carpenter came over in two days time and fixed the cabinet. You can refer to the photo below for the measurements.
This shoe rack cost me 5,189/- INR which is a reasonable rate. It weighs around 35 kgs. However I am not completely satisfied with the quality.
The finishing is not good at all. I was shocked to see that the print on this cabinet is actually a thin paper stuck to the wood.
I have a printed storage table in my living room which is of great quality compared to this one and it has laminated print on it. No sticking whatsoever. Have a look at the picture below. You cannot make out the difference until you personally see the product.
Although this product is just about okay, I don’t think I will take the risk of purchasing furniture online in the future. Sometimes you do come across lovely pieces but that’s pure luck I would say. The local furniture here is much cheaper, customisable and of great quality.
