Yes, 2 hours to assemble , but worth it . Yes,a little creamy in colour , but worked for us .Its in a corner morning room off our main kitchen , so as there is no door on this area, it really doesn't heat up much , but does just take the edge off the slight chill there can be in this room as its all windows , in a fully enclosed area I'm sure it would be great .
Totally functional piece----take care of two needs with one purchase; a fireplace and a tv stand. My 17 year old daughter put together the entire fireplace and was so proud of the excellent work she did. I was too!!!! We LOVE LOVE LOVE the fireplace-so cozy....................and the tv is at a perfect height for us.
Simply the perfect accent item I was looking for. Does need two people to put together but easy to do. Lots of little pieces (screws, etc). Recommend using little cups and labeling each with the "letter" after you open the packets that come in a long strip holding all those bits. Definitely cream colored, not a stark or bright white. Gives off nice glow and heat. Fits well in an average size living room. Able to support larger plasma/led TV. Sturdy construction, level support. Opening for cable box etc is large... I have my box and modem stacked in that area. Side shelving is TINY... Nice for small trinkets, but probably won't manage DVDs or CDs due to depth.
Fireplace/cabinet is perfect against a flat wall or can be used as a corner piece, therefore, it is adaptable (bonus). The description was very accurate, however, the color was not as exact. I did not consider the color to be "ivory". The one we received had a slight mushroom green tint which worked out well anyway, which was awesome! The assembly went fairly well and was not difficult braking approximately 2 hours. We are extremely happy with our purchase😃
We received the product within 5 days which was great but no hardware was in the box. The hardware was sent the next week the product is not hard to put together but I never felt like the pieces were secure each piece is loose as it was constructed. Not impressed with the product
Really a great addition. Pleased. Use as out TV entertainment center. Haven't used heat yet but the fireplace is very attractive. It did take me and my husband 4 hours to put together though. We did take our time. Because the directions weren't as clear as our items we have put together.
I was able to put it together in a couple of hours by myself. Good instructions and no issues with the pieces. The firebox puts out a lot of heat and this looks nice in its corner. The temp control is behind a panel so you have to open the panel to see what you are doing. It would be nice if I could just use the remote to manage the temp, otherwise I would have rated it higher.
When you buy something sight unseen online, you expect to take things that are not perfect with a grain of salt. I can honestly say this was one of the BEST purchases I've made online. I was more than pleasantly surprised by how solid the wood is. I also love the finish....it's not white-white...and its not yellow ivory...it's a creamy, slightlly distressed look. It's gorgeous. I have a 52" tv on top, and it fits perfectly....any bigger and I think it would start to extend on the sides wider than the fireplace itself. Two of us put it together...I see some people did it alone, and they have my complete respect...not that it was rocket science, but four hands are definitely better than two. The doors were a little tricky, but are even, and close nicely. I am not using the corner piece, so I left it off. I will say that the very tiny screws should have had holes pre-drilled, but we managed. We had no problem with the cam-locks. The fireplace is quiet,and I was nervous about the LED bulbs looking too "bluey-white", but they are warm and inviting. Overall, a very high-quality looking piece of furniture I will have for a long, long time. If I have to find one negative, it would be that the space for components is stingy It's only 5 inches -- so my cable box fit and fortunately I have a very, very slim DVD player. You have to put the components in from the back to utillize every bit of the 5 inches. Oh, I was missing one small piece which was a tiny block that the firebox sits on. Honestly, you don't need it. I called customer service and they sent the piece to me immediately. I get many compliments of this piece of furniture -- the price and quality are outstanding. Have some patience putting it together, and it's a winner.
