It came in a lot of boxes but we took our time and read the directions. There were extra screws and tools. It all came together beautifully, but it is a two person project. The quality of the island is good and it looks great in my kitchen.
I received my order in a timely manner. There were no contents missing. I am a handyman of sorts but due to some confusing instructions found the assembly labor and time intensive. I had to re-drill some holes as some were either incorrectly positioned or not drilled. Drawer alignment is a pain. The granite inlay is very poorly finished and showed scratches and blemishes right out of the carton. The piece looks fair once assembled and is functional. I don't feel like I was cheated, but it isn't a real bargain all things considered.
The packaging appeared to be intact, so I do not lay blame on the delivery of this product. However, the wooden top was split, one of the sides of the drawers was split into 2 pieces and there is a crack in the granite top. Luckily, my husband does carpentry for a hobby and was able to repair these issues so that it is functional. It was simply too much trouble to send this large, heavy item back. On the positive side, it is an attractive piece. And with the repairs my husband made, it looks nice except for one side of the top where it was split. The crack in the granite is not obvious since the granite is dark. The finish is a nice dark cherry color. The stools don't seem to have the same finish. They are a bit lighter in color.
I was a little skeptical about ordering this online but am so glad I did. This piece of furniture is absolutely beautiful. I couldn't have asked for anything more. It took several hours to assemble but the instructions were clear and all pieces were clearly labeled. I loved this so much that I have ordered the matching pantry and buffet!
WE ORDERED THIS ISLAND CHEAPER THAN WE COULD HAVE HAD IT MADE. IT DID HAVE TO BE ASSEMBLED WHICH TOOK MY HUSBAND 5 HOURS BUT IT WAS WELL WORTH IT. I LOVE THIS ISLAND!
