The hall stand sits in the entryway of my 100+ year old house and everyone who comes in comments on the beauty of the furniture and the way it just fits in the decor. The only problem with it is that it is one of the hardest to assemble KD pieces I've ever bought. I had a contractor working in the house when it arrived and I had him assemble it when I saw how hard it was going to be. It took his carpenter about 6 hours to put it together. On the other hand, it is a wonderful piece and I am proud to display and use it. So, knowing what I now know, I'd still have bought it.

My husband bought this for me as a birthday gift in our new home, it is lovely in person and meets our needs as a front entry place for our guests coats. It looks so much more rich in person and I believe it was a good value for the money spent.
Was a little tricky to assemble by myself. Had to enlist the help of my son to hold pieces together. The top part is very heavy and didn't feel comfortable that it would be stable. But added a few L-brackets(not included) and it felt more secure. Works perfectly in my entry. Love the top shelves, perfect place to hold my sunglasses when coming home. Sturdy to put on/take off shoes.
Very well made piece of furniture with beautiful details. It takes a bit of time to put it together but for the price it is worth it. The finish in a rich chocolate brown with NOT a lot of reds. the cubbies are the perfect size for some books and a small plant. Also I bought two regular pillows and they fit perfectly on the bench seat to form a cushion.
The wood is good. Some of the end pegs cracked the wood on the parts (Factory done). None were to the point of breaking though so I used. I'll probably order some back up pieces in case I have any trouble later though. Very easy to put together!!!! I was able to do in less than 3 1/2 hours with my 3 kids (all 5 and under) yelling at me every five minutes. The only piece of advice I would give is be careful how far you screw the cam lock screws in (They are screwing into a plastic piece put in the wood). If you go to far, you'll have trouble and break the cam locks. Looks smaller than other units I've seen, but I feel it'll be perfect for my kids to use when they come in the door. I left the doors off so they could easily put their shoes in the cabinet. So all in all if you need a hall tree but need a smaller one It will be perfect for you. If you are needing something for a lot adult shoes, this is not the hall tree for you.
