I love my Aristo Halifax Console Table. I received it within a week and it was packaged very well. The color is great and has more of an espresso color to it so it was perfect for me and looks great in my entry way. I saw where many people complained about how much time it took to put together. I put this table together by myself and it was not difficult at all. I would recommend having a drill though. If you use a screwdriver it will take forever. The directions were fine, easy to read. I would recommend this table to anyone, actually I already have, lol. If you buy this table you wont regret it.
We purchased the console table to serve as a sofa table for a large living room. The table dimensions were perfect for this purpose, and the table looks gorgeous in person. Assembly did take awhile simply because there are many parts, but we had no issues understanding the directions or getting the parts to fit together smoothly. A few interior pieces were slightly damaged (scratches, a small crack in the veneer) but as they are generally unseen and not structural issues, we didn't think it was necessary to return it. As another user mentioned, there is a streak of something on the glass that won't come off - but that is easily hidden as well.
purchased for xmas this year and assembly was easy, even with a roomful of excited daughters running about. Directions were very clear. The only drawback of the table is has a bit of veneer....also the fit wasn't 100% tight below the drawers. It's awfully nice overall and good for the price.
Table looks nice, contemporary, fairly easy to put together. The finish on the wood was "incomplete" in some areas, but not enough so that I would return it. Heavy metal drawer pulls are a plus that add some real dimension and style. Overall, I would recommend it. As far as "checking shipping" through "Online Chat"- found that a bit awkward with repetitious questions from clerk after giving order number- prior to giving my dely info- clerk required my "real address", and several other pieces of info- -Just give me the ship date already! (Some efficiency in this area would be appreciated!)
I looked around for several months for the perfect entryway table and finally decided on this one, as the price was right and the table was more substantial (longer) than other tables I had been looking at. In fact, the only other table I liked as much was also $500 more and didn't really look more expensive than this one. It also has 2 drawers, which are always useful. The drawers themselves are lightweight, but it would seem that they would only be light use anyway. Also, this table is finished on the back (rather than having a discernible particle board backing that's not even the same color) And other console tables that I looked at in stores were comparable appearance-wise, but, again, the cheapest of those was still more expensive than this one (and, frankly, this one is much more sophisticated looking). My final decision, however, was based on previous product reviews, which were all favorable. But, yes, be prepared to spend a few hours putting it together (my husband performed this task) but, even if I had to, I'd definitely say it was worth the effort considering the quality of the product and the price.
I admit it. I am a fussy shopper and I eyed this entry table for 3 months before pulling the trigger on it. I read the reviews and finally decided that the good outweighed the bad. I certainly am not sorry I bought it. The table is lovely and looks far more expensive than it was. It arrived in under a week, well packed and with clear instructions for assembly. All of the holes on my table lined up and putting it together took my husband and I about a hour. If the style is right for your home, you won't go wrong with this piece. I love, love, LOVE it!
I felt very comfortable purchasing this table based on the other reviews. It's very solid and looks much more expensive than it was. The drawers are nice and slide smoothly. The glass top is thick. I was so pleased that I bought the matching coffee table. They're great! And I was able to put each of them together by myself in about 1 1/2 hours.
This table was frustrating as heck to put together. The cam locks didn't lock smoothly and often during assembly came loose. We used a Philips as well as a hex screw tool thingy. Between the two, we finally put it together. It looks great and so far it feels really sturdy.
I spent less than an hour assembling this console - taking my time that is. The finished product is sturdy and does not look "cheap". I plan to order the matching end tables as well. You would pay over $1000 for this type of piece at a furniture store.
Beautiful contemporary table with attractive hardware. This is not a cheapie, at all. Delivered within days of purchase. No damage to shipment. Very easy to put together, until adding the top piece. This required a little MacGuyver'ing, as the pieces didn't quite fit as engineered. After minutely enlarging two of the holes used to fit the top piece to the main piece, everything came together quickly. This is a well designed table, and I'm happy with my purchase.
We were very impressed with this product. It is the type of quality furniture you would expect to see in model homes. The assembly is straight forward and directions are easy to follow. I am an assembly/manufacturing engineer and it took me about 2 hours to put together.
I purchased this table, but should have paid better attention to the description. It has a glass top, which I didn't realize. For some reason, I cannot get the glass to come clean. It has some sort of film on it that will not come off. Second, it is a huge build project. If you're wanting something that take little energy or input, this isn't it. It took awhile to build the table and the instructions were not very clear. I would also recommend using a power drill for this project, as a hand tool will wear you out quickly. Overall, it's a nice table and will work for my purposes, but would have been more selective about how much work would be involved in building it.
This is a nice accent table for out living room. We bought this more than a year ago and now that we have moved to a different house, it still looks pretty good. It compliments the room wherever you put it. It's stable and good quality. It would have been a 5 star if the drawers were aligned. It's not a very big deal though.
Nicely made. Good style. Good size. Good materials. It adds a nice dimension to my son's contemporary bedroom. The drawers are just perfect for his video games and odds and ends. The shelf under the glass is perfect for his gaming consoles. We put two red stools underneath the table for him to pull out and play away. Very happy with this purchase.
It's an elegant piece for a Console Table. The drawer size is not too big, but it's enough to put some smaller articles. It took a little while to put together. Helps with an electric screw driver. Had some difficulties figuring out certain screws, but I figured it out at the end.
