Bronze Double Folding Hamper
Great hamper for the price
I bought this to replace a fabric hamper that was tearing. I put it together pretty quickly and really like the way it looks in my bathroom- ads a bit of class to dirty laundry. I like the two compartments because it allows me to sort before it gets to the laundry room.

Very nice looking and well made. I just wish they made a bigger version.

Nearly impossible to assemble
You'll open the box, all the pieces look the same. They're not labeled. You'll look at the instructions. Only one page. "Seems simple enough," you'll think. I just make sure the bottom is at the bottom and the top is at the top. It has feet. No problem.
You'll put it together. There's a very small chance you'll get it right that first time. If you do, congrats, you beat the odds. If you didn't, you'll notice that it doesn't seem straight, like it's backwards, or inside out somehow.
It's at this point you'll realize that the crossbars have different lengths. The instructions confirm this. Confidently, you'll think "Okay, shorter bars go on the inside, longer bars go on the outside, got it!"
You flip one side, so that the inside bars and the outside bars match up. You start screwing it back together. You notice you're looking at a a foot (bottom), and a cap (top). You flipped it wrong. "Ha! That was silly!" you'll think. You flip it again. But wait, was that how it was originally? Can't be, the bars match up. But wait, The instructions say to make sure the dimples are on the outside...
But there are dimples on both sides. Thus begins your ascent into madness. You will be tempted, at this point, to continue. "It can't be that hard," You'll think. "I just need to flip this bar the right way, and it'll come out perfectly!"
You'd be smart to heed my warning: Don't continue. Not unless you have a background in non-Euclidean geometry. Go back to the store and get yourself a basket. It's simply not worth it.
TL;DR - This product is either designed to be slightly crooked when fully assembled, or it's a tool designed to induce madness.

Great Sturdy Hamper
This was a great addition to my laundry room. It was little hard to assemble but I think that's because I was easily confused. After getting ti together, it was very sturdy and looks great. Each side holds more than a load of laundry and keeps my laundry room looking clean and organized. I can't wait for them to go on sale so I can buy another.
