I was looking for a large glass armoire that can hold a lot of glassware and platters and was not able to find something large and antique looking enough for my space and decor. looking at the description and picture of this one on Overstock.com, it seemed to be the perfect item and the price was right at my budget. I was however concerned about the quality and about the transport damaging this piece. The armoire arrived much faster than I thought (10 days) and it was so well wrapped and packaged that there was absolutely no damage and no defect. The quality is much superior than what I anticipated and it looks very expensive. What a nice buy! One only warning is that it is very heavy and they won't deliver the piece inside your house. They leave it at the front so make sure you have enough manpower to lift and move it. But shipping was free so for us it was well worth doing this job ourselves with the help of a friend.

I did read the reviews on the "weight" of this piece. I may be the only one who had to call a MOVING COMPANY to uncrate it and get it in my house! It is a very nice piece of furniture. My collectibles do not show as much as they did on the glass/mirror curio. The shelves are very deep, but do not have a groove to hold platters in place. Also, very dark inside, even through it's placed by a window.
I ordered 2 of these some time ago. I thought I would take a chance as I had been looking for curio cabinets for months and at every furniture store. I wanted something rustic but nice that would hold and display my collectibles and favorite things. I have no china cabinet or built in's like the home I moved from. The first 2 sent were damaged, but they sent replacements right away that came quickly and very well packaged. There was no damage and yes - per all the other reviews..they are extremely heavy!! They are beautiful. Although they look much darker in the picture and that is what I was hoping for, they are much lighter - more rustic with 2 tone wood. I love them. I would recommend them. They are also a great price.
This piece is Beautiful. But let me tell you..It is HEAVY! Make sure you have many strong people to help move it! It is great quality and it arrived well packaged. Not one ding, scratch etc. I was a bit worried because it has so much glass, but it was well shipped.

This cabinet is absolutely beautiful. It's definitely a statement piece. The wood has a great texture, and the stain is rich & dark. It came well packed. It is extremely heavy, so make sure you have several strong guys to lift it.

This was my first big purchase from an overstock as in oversize delivery and between the anxiety of spending so much site unseen and then worrying about how it will be delivered this was a wonderful experience. I would order a large item again from overstock and with this one you will not be disappointed, it is solid, beautiful and very well crafted.
Gorgeous and magnificent describe this piece perfectly. So happy I bought it - and paid extra for white glove service setting up and removing all the packaging. Without that service I'd have an enormous box still stuck in my carport! Everyone who comes into my home just stares at and verbally admires it. The wood is so rich and attractive it is almost compelling without being showy at all. Very Classy indeed. Only problem is the odd smell that still lingers inside. I've aired it out, oiled and waxed it to no avail. Even after a very long time it still makes my eyes water and nose cringe. However - I'm so glad I have this piece that I don't care. The doors are closed anyway as they were supposed to be.
This is one of my favorite pieces- very very heavy. My only problem is that the doors are a bit warped so don't stay closed- for this price, that should have not been an issue. It would be great if it came with lights. But I'll be installing ikea lights soon to fix that.
