This buffet table arrived very well packed in three heavy boxes. When unpacked, the prospect of putting it all together looked very daunting because there were so many pieces, but the instruction was easy to follow with every piece clearly marked. The hardest part to assembe was the sliding drawers. You must make sure that the wheels are correctly placed, otherwise the drawers will slide out when you are finished. (I made that mistake and had to unscrew all the drawer hardware parts and re-do again.) It might help by visualizing how it should work before actually screwing in the parts. You'll need power tool for this job, otherwise your hands will have blisters. You'll also need couple of hours to assemble. I did it by myself and it took all day. The end result was as shown on the picture. The table came out steady, functional, and beautiful. I would recommend this table to anyone who wished to have extra diningroom storage space. You just need a little patience to put it all together. The end result is well worth the effort.
We purchased the buffet, table and 6 chairs. The buffet was the most time consuming but still only took a few hours to assemble. Everything went together very nicely. The drawers slide smoothly and the cabinet doors open easily. It is very sturdy and well made. I really like the modern design and the color is exactly what I was looking for, "dark espresso".
I was very nervous about purchasing this buffet without seeing it in person. My husband even warned me about ordering it. I took a chance and am very, very pleased. This buffett is beautiful! It wasn't hard to put together just time consuming. We even used a regular ol' screwdriver because the battery went out on our electric one. Read and reread directions. The picture is true to color and is a beautiful rich dark brown. It is mostly (90%) solid wood and very sturdy. It was packed and shipped expertly and arrived in less than a week, which included a holiday and a weekend. I couldn't be happier with this purchase. It even won my husband over and we are ordering a similar Axium product. Thanks for a great product at a great price!!!
The buffet is very sturdy and looks great, but just a warning that is a very dark brown, closer to black. It took 2 people about 5 hours to put together, working diligently. The parts are well labeled and an electric screwdriver is a must. I really didn't notice an odor as others did and have gotten many compliments on it. Good storage, do wish there were more than one shelf for each side. Drawers open and close smoothly and doors fit well.
This piece completed my formal dining room. It looks very rich. The Quality I think is fair for the price. I found that the wood split easily when screwing in the back panel. But the product when assembled looks exceptional. If you're not one for assembling furniture and is short on patience; this is not the product for you. This piece has very very many parts and took me an entire weekend to assemble.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? This Buffet is very very dark brown in color, almost black but not quite. I believe Expresso is the accurate color description
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good for Prine
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate
I was leery of this product but based on reviews I purchased it. I have had experience with "cam lock" fasteners before, and as an engineer and designer I rate them rather low on the scale of effectiveness. I was very impressed with the finish and quality of the pieces, and the more I worked the more I saw that both the basic design and look were quite impressive. However, at the first attempt to use the cam lock fasteners the assembly came to an abrupt halt. The top was cupped front to back by a small amount that would not have mattered if standard screws were used. However, the cam locks were unable to draw the pieces into alignment, even with a mere 1/16 inch of cupping, and they either broke at any reasonable attempt at tightening or would not engage at all. The flaw is that the "pot metal" cams were so weak and the cross section of materials used so flimsy that they have no chance of working except under the most favorable of conditions. And even then, I would worry that they could easily loosen over time due to the extremely low clamping force that this kind of fastener can produce. The studs used with the cams have blunted and squared ends which made starting them into their pre-drilled holes exactly perpendicular to the boards extremely difficult. And if you didn't get it the first time, there was no way back, unless you wanted to try and bend them, which would loosen them in their holes. That meant that they were off alignment when assembled so the cam locks could not engage properly. So, left without functioning cam locks I attempted to glue and clamp the pieces together. However, the finish was such that neither wood glue nor super glue would adhere to the finish at all, it repelled them like ducks repel water. At that point I pondered using my own skills to essentially reengineer the joinery but one look at the sheer number of cam locks in the bag made me realize that I did not want nor need another major project. On the good side, besides the quality and appealing style of the rest of the buffet, Overstock.com was sympathetic and immediate in allowing the return of the item. In summary I would re-purchase this product in an instant if the fastener problem were reengineered, but for me the flawed cam lock system was fatal.
Love, love, love this buffet. I bought this for my daughter's small condo and it is such a nice piece of furniture. It took my son about four and a half hours to put it together,but it was worth it. It has great storage and great looks. It's just fabulous!
Bought this with the tribecca home Charles table and chairs it goes beautifully together one piece of the buffet was not aligned because holes were drilled in the wrong place but o sent another one it was a chore to put together but worth it
It's a beautiful buffet. But because of the color you'll always see dust on it. Plus all the scratches. Make sure to put it together on carper never on the hard floor. Came with few scratches but overstock was able to give discount so I'm happy. It's perfect in my dining room. It takes around 3-4 hrs to out this together.

i purchased the Cheshire Rich Espresso Dining set and love it. Will the color of this match the set? If it is almost black I believe it will be too dark, but that is not the description.

We bought this from Overstock a few years ago, and really like it. However, during a recent move, the inner shelves went missing - is there a was to order those separately? I was sent a link via chat to productassist.com, but it would not let me register (which seems to be a prerequisite for support).
