Packages arrived on time, in excellent condition. I didn't, and haven't, noticed any blemishes on the wood or glass. The table looks just like the picture and is a wonderful addition to my entryway. It took about 3 hours to put together (I had to redo the drawer runner a couple times before I got it right). I'm very pleased with this purchase.
We have this piece in a high traffic area in our home, and it has held up very well. As I said, we've had it over a year, and this is one small spot that could use a color touch-up. It is well worth it's cost. My husband put it together and says he did not have the trouble that some reviewers did. It doesn't look like a $2000 table, but for something under $500 - oh,yeah!
This console has a very contemporary look and was just what I needed for my entryway. It came in two large boxes and had alot of pieces but they were very well labeled. The directions could be more descriptive but if you've put furniture together before you should be ok. ASSEMBLY TIP: make sure all the cams are set open. If not, then your table top and legs will not "lock" together.
