This buffet is beautiful. Made of quality materials. I read the other reviews prior to buying so was aware of the assembly concerns going in. We were able to get everything assembled relatively easy, except as other reviewers put the instructions are not clear on how to put the drawers on. In fact, the directions actually show putting the drawer brackets on the interior walls of the buffet backward. So, if you buy this buffet I would suggest mounting the brackets for one drawer completely, to make sure you have them the correct way and then do the rest. This should save the headache that most others experienced. The brackets attached to the drawers should have the wheels at the back-end of the drawer. The brackets mounted on the interior side-walls of the buffet should have the wheels at the front, open-end of the buffet and the wheel should be on the bottom. So, when you put the drawer in it will rest on top of the wheel mounted in the buffet.Overall I am very pleased with this purchase and hope that the explanation on mounting the drawers helps.
I have previously ordered the matching end tables, so I knew it would be quality. I timed myself and it was slightly over 4 hours( includes the time spent organizing the parts). I only used a manual screwdriver ,could save time with a drill. Love the look of this, very contemporary. I am using it as a TV stand, liquor cabinet. Like the drawers for holding my WII parts. I am a 60 year old female.
I ordered this product, it arrived after about 8 days or so - which was acceptable. I was VERY excited to buy this product and thought it would meet my needs perfectly (looked like it would work with my very dark brown dining room table). However, when I opened the package, I was thoroughly disappointed to see that the wood was most definitely black, with no bit of brown in it at all.
I contacted customer service regarding returning this product, and I did know it wouldn't be free to return it, but I was told it would cost $$$ to ship the product back. I bought the buffet for $$$. The return price on the return just seems absurd - it's 40% of the purchase price. I just received this product - so there is no restocking fee or anything added. I'm now trying to sell the buffet on *** to hopefully not loose as much money.
Overall, I'm very disapointed with overstock.com and thiswhole experience.. I am not going out of my way to shop here again.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Much darker in person.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality appears ok - wood is thin, product was heavy. I did not take much of it out of the box.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Other than color, not sure.
I've had this product for 6 months now, and I'm very happy with it. Using it as a TV stand, since most pieces made for that purpose are only about two feet high, and that looks stupid with a huge flat screen. It came quickly and undamaged and boyfriend put it together in an afternoon. It is lovely, the espresso color wood has a visible grain and the finish is perfect. The cable boxes and stuff fit in the "shelf" with room to spare. The drawers slide easily and the storage is a real bonus. One thing, if you intend to put some considerable weight on the top, like a TV, you will need to make a small "brace" to keep the top from sagging. Boyfriend put a little stick of wood, painted dark brown, behind one of the cable boxes, so it's not really visible and it still keeps the top from bowing in the middle from the weight of the TV. Don't hesitate to purchase this piece if you want a contemporary piece of grand scale and contemporary design.

This piece was perfect to put in our formal living room. The right color, the right length and height, pretty modern... but it was an absolute nightmare to put together. I will probably never buy a piece of furniture I have to put together myself based on this piece. There were 15 steps but one "step" would include five additional steps within it, making one step instructions a complete paragraph that was really confusing with all of the 15 different screws, bolts, etc . Some pieces we didn't even use like the little wooden dowels because they wouldn't fit in the pre-made holes or made it even harder to put together. With my husband and I doing it together it took probably 5+ hours. Everything came in 3 separate boxes too. So once we finally found the instructions and laid everything out we were able to start. It's very sturdy and stable and looks great but such a pain putting together. Our electric drill wouldn't screw the screws all the way down either. For whatever reason, we had to hand screw on everything.

Okay, this is a beautiful piece once put together. But my goodness, it is a BEAST, to put together. I'm so glad I read the reviews about the directions of the drawer wheels. This was EXTREMELY helpful. It's not 100% solid wood, but the outer portions are. It's the inner parts that are particle board. If you're a carpenter or know one, you could always use the inner parts as a pattern and buy some pine or other inexpensive solid wood and remake and stain these. This would make the piece significantly heavier, but sturdier and more long lasting.
Color is a very dark cherry almost black but you can see the wood grain. Looks and feels like an expensive piece of furniture. It is mostly real wood with some being pressed wood in the drawers. It was shipped in 3 Large boxes and quite heavy. It does take a long time to put together but my husband did it in about 2.5 hours.It has very spacious cabinets. It was worth the price, get lots of compliments and looks more expensive than what I paid for it. You won't be disappointed with this piece. I love it!

what is the backing? Is it wood, so that it could be used as a room divider?alslush on Jan 1, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The backing seems to be of a very thin like piece of wood. We are using it as a room divider and it looks great! The instructions seem to show the seem of this backing should be facing on the outside, but we turned it around the other way and it looks better that way for the use of a room divider! The four door cabinet to match this piece, you really need to keep the seem on that one to the outside, otherwise it will be visible through the glass doors. Awesome cabinet!coochie1 on Jan 5, 2013
the backing is not finished. there is a large piece of white tape running the length of the buffet that splices the back panel together. Screw heads are seen.wellsigo on Jun 11, 2013
