the color and lookes are great.I love it. But I will not recomend to anybody that are not handy and do not have someone to assemble the table for them. It has toooo many pieces. I had to hire a carpenter to assemble it for me. He even had hard time.
The finished product is lovely and true to picture. The wood is rich looking and the silver hardware is nice. It just took some time to assemble. There were lots of parts and needed to follow instructions carefully. Nonetheless, it looks professionally crafted in the end and I happy with it.
First, this is a major DIY product. Although the assembly is not complicated, there is a lot to it. Just be prepared to spend an evening on it, if you bought a pair as I did. You will also need specific tools to complete. The list is on the instructions and not on the box, so check before beginning. Also, the screwdriver needs to be short to secure the top piece. Next, the fit and finish are pretty good, though the drawers could line up better. The interior drawer pieces are not solid wood. A bit of a disappointment for KD furniture of this price. Next, they are heavy. The combination of the glass top and lots of solid wood really adds up. It is critical that you properly tighten connectors for the top piece because they can barely handle the weight and that is the obvious place to hold the unit when carrying it. Finally, the drawer pulls are very stylish, but have some sharp corners. Not very child (or adult friendly). A few minutes with a Dremel and a buffing wheel fixed that issue. Conclusion, nice piece of furntiture that looks as good as high end products, but takes a fair amount of effort and time to assemble. For the price, I would double check with local furniture dealers before purchasing and if you don't find anything you like, then jump in.
The shipping was fast-- the table was a little bit time consuming to put together- but the directions were very clear and easy to follow. I absoutely love the table and the quality is fantatic. The picture does not do it justice. Please keep in mind-- it states brown table, but finish is dark much like an espresso finish.
I'm not sure whether these tables were what I wanted. They look terrific and were relatively easy to assemble, although took a lot of time (and I got quite a few blisters because I used a manual screwdriver) until it came time to put in the drawer slides. The holes are not predrilled, and I'm not sure how to figure out where they go, so I just left the drawers out for the time being. Knowing me, they will probably stay out forever, or for at least a while. The tables look really good the way they are, and I'm kind of afraid to mess them up by putting in the drawers unevenly. So if you want tables without drawers, I'd go for these. If you're like me and aren't really confident of your furniture assembling abilities, maybe something a little less challenging is in order.
I bought one of these to use as a night stand. It arrived within 1 week undamaged in one box. It's kind of a pain in the rear to assemble because of all the parts. I would strongly suggest that, if you don't have one, you invest in a power screw driver before assembly. Ill make your life infinitely easier. Once assembled, it is sturdy and beautiful. Just don't think you're going to put it together in a half hour (unless you really know what yoou're doing).
I can recommend this side table. It is heavy weight, looks sleek and fits a variety of different styles. As other reviewers mentioned, the assemblence is a bit tricky - you have to read carefully. It took me 2.5 hours. I had to undo the drawer slides again because I didn't pay enough attention and put them the wrong way. Overall I am very happy with the purchase and think about buying matching pieces to complete the look.
This Product is a fine piece of furniture; the table is solid with a very rich finish as shown in the picture on the website. I received the item very quickly and undamaged by standard shipping. The assembly of the piece is simple and straight forward if all the pieces were correct. Unfortunately the lower drawer face was mitered on the back on the wrong side causing the bottom of the drawer not to fit correctly, making it impossible to complete the assembly of the drawer. Since drawer assembly is the last step in the instruction booklet I had no choice by to make a new miter in the correct position instead of disassembling the whole unit and sending the whole unit back. This added an extra hour to the already 1.5 hours of assembly time. My correct didn┐t show since it was on the inside of the drawer, although you can see it if I open the drawer. Other than that it is a fine piece of furniture at a fair price.
We love this table. It looks great. The storage space under the glass top is perfect for a laptop or magazines-- and still lets you have a clean tidy surface. Top drawer great for pens and other junk. Bottom drawer is deeper (looks like two small drawers in photo) and is great for stashing a throw blanket.
Ordered two of these for nightstands and eventhough the assembly was time consuming and there were many pieces I would definately buy these tables all over again. Their design is georgeous and the color is rich and beautiful. The glass top provides carefree maintenance so the husband won't be in trouble for water marks. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these tables. Very surprised and pleased they came so quickly and damage free. Thank you Overstock - Good Job.
This is a great product for a great price. Solidly made. It has a very dark brown almost wenge like finish. It's not near has hard to put together as some of the comments I have read. It took one hour an 15 minutes to assembe the first and 50 minutes to assemble the second. Just allow yourself plenty of room and organize your tolls and parts berfore you begin. I highly reccomend this product.
