This was our second order from Overstock and I was very hesitant because the first item we ordered was horribly damaged not to mention of very poor quality. I am quickly learning that items from overstock really at dependent on the manufacturer....anyways....this buffet is gorgeous! It was impeccably packed! My husband had an easy time putting it together. The color is very accurate to a dark walnut, no red undertones or anything like that. It blends nicely with other pieces of furniture that are espresso in color. I would highly recommend and I would buy for this company again!
This product comes in two packages. I received my second today and opened and inspected the product. Quality looks good except for the crack that runs through the entire length of the left side panel. I have yet to put it together as I have to wait another week for box 1 and return the damaged side panel. I'm beginning to suspect the reviews about the cracks to be accurate. I would stay clear and look elsewhere.
Exactly what we were looking for and are very happy with this buffet. Very heavy solid wood pieces took some time to put together (four hours) but well worth it. Hinges for the doors take some adjustment but are well made and do fit well. Glad we got it.
I bought this almost a year ago as we were purchasing a new home and cupboard space was at a premium in the new house. We did some major renovations to accommodate my handicap and moved in in late July. In mid August we put together and set up the buffet. It looked great and held my good china and silverware, no problem. I thought I made a good purchase with my social security check and was content. Then in early November the top on the right side cracked. It now has a 10-12 inch split. I saved for months for this purchase and will not be able to replace it, so my china will sit and a plastic shelf unit from my garage. Save your money!!!!!
We received our buffet today and my husband had it put together in 45 minutes. It is extremely well made and exactly what I was looking for. And, it Is a perfect match to my dining set. We love it so much that we are ordering a second one!
Needed a piece for under the wall mounted big screen TV. Found this "buffet" to be perfect height for our needs. Length matched the TV and depth holds all media components. Glass doors make it possible for the "remote" to work, and bottom shelf accomodates the cold air return for the furnace! Kitty loves to lounge on the top and be toasty from the TV HD heat!
The delivery process went better then expected. We received it a week before Thanksgiving which was perfect. My husband put it together in about an hour, so it was fairly easy to assemble. There is so much space in the shelves that we ended up putting all of our dinner plates and bowls in there leaving us with more cabinet space in the kitchen. So far its the best purchase I have made on overstock.
This buffet is of fine quality and a lovely piece of furniture. The finish on the wood is smooth and flawless. The hinges on the doors are worth mentioning - they close firmly and are even beautiful themselves. One word of caution: since this buffet comes unassembled, and is a for-real piece of furniture, I highly recommend taking your time putting it together, or even better get someone else to do it for you. My husband put mine together, and he was very careful every step of the way. The pieces are somewhat heavy and strength is needed to make sure the parts come together before screwing in hardware. So - it's lovely and heavy-ish and deserves to be put together carefully.
Bought this lovely buffet for my daughter in Rhode Island for a house warming gift after my husband and I went to help move her in. My daughter had bought a lot of new furniture for the home but did not purchase a buffet to go with the dining room table, she has an incredible collection of Polish Pottery and " needed something " to put it in. In searching for the right buffet I wanted to get her something that matched her table that would not only store her Polish Pottery but show case it as well, this buffet was perfect! My daughter in law was able to assemble it in an afternoon while my daughter and granddaughter were out for a couple hours, the 2 very large boxes it arrives in can be intimidating but if you follow the well written directions you too can have this beautiful buffet at a great price! I shop Overstock.com a great deal, buying for my daughter and having it ship sight unseen was a bit of a concern for color match, it was spot on and we could not be any happier! Should you chance it? Absolutely and enjoy this beautiful buffet!
I absolutely love this piece! It is very well made and while time consuming to put together it is well worth the effort. It was purchased to put a microwave on in an eat in area of my kitchen and the size is perfect. It looks so much more expensive than it was. I would highly recommend this buffet to anyone.
I bought 2 of these buffets for each side of my fireplace. They look great and have deep storage. Once put together, they look like fine furniture. It took some time to figure out the doors as there is a pattern that we did not discover right away. (Large and small hinges) and the directions were not clear on that. Otherwise, I would highly recommend this buffet.
bought this to use in my small dining room as a liquor cabinet/bar setup. it's very heavy and would definitely have been easier to put together with a helper, but the boyfriend was out of town and i wanted to put it together NOW, so what's a girl to do? not too terribly complicated at all to put together, the pieces are just heavy. i love that the door hinges can be adjusted after installation to tweak door placement. everything went great until the very end when i put the shelves in. the holes on each side were misaligned by a good 3/4". this was SO ANNOYING to discover at the end of the process. i ended up drilling new holes halfway between the holes in the center divider. not a deal breaker but i mean, come on, this isn't crappy cheapo dorm furniture, i feel like when you spend $400+ on a piece of furniture, the shelf holes should line up. but all in all i like it. i'm leaving the shelf out of once side for bottles, and using the other side with shelf for glasses etc. dimensions are correct except for height which is actually 37.375".
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? accurate
