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.

No complaints here. It arrived in very good condition, No missing parts. No dents or scratch. Took us 4 hours to put together and that's with a 1 year old running around and trying to help. Very easy to follow instructions, looks great in our hallway.. I wish it's just a tad taller, otherwise very nice product. Looks more expensive than what I paid for too.
As you enter our condo the first thing you see is this beautiful bench hall tree. After adding my own decorative touches it is vert inviting. The only problem we had was we didn't get all of the correct hardware, so make sure to check everything. We went to our local hardware and remedied the problem!
I had searched and searched for a hall tree with seating, storage, and hooks. I thought I found it all in this hall stand and had high hopes that it would fit my needs....never got to find out because it was IMPOSSIBLE to assemble. There were four people in my house (including a neighbor who is 6'8" and very strong) and we could not get the pieces to go together.
This unit looks like it will be nice, If I can ever get it put together. The first two steps were a gem. then came the back. There really needs to a prayer or incantation for miraculous alignment or maybe just bottles of rubber cement to hold everything in place while one attempts the back. I begain worked on it the12 and put it down for later after my nerves have cooled. 1
I love this piece of furniture . It's just what I have been looking for. It's heavy . Nice wood. Looks great we have gotten compliments from everyone that has come to our home. It's not easy to put together and some of the screws were not long enough , but we had some that worked . For The price it is well worth the money.
First of all had to wait to get the hardware to assemble after offering to PAY additional to have it overnighted. Then the product had extremely poor workmanship. ALL of the holes didn't match and extremely flimsy. Much shorter than anticipated. Looks like something for a doll house rather than a piece of elegant furniture. Took 2 very qualified people over 4 hours to assemble then had to apply extra gorilla glue to have the product sturdy. POOR quality and POOR craftsmanship. Embarrassed to have in my house until I find a replacement. Will NEVER buy anything made by this company again.
Looks can be so deceiving. This company should take lessons from ***. Terribly difficult to assemble. My husband built our home but could not get this together. He ended up replacing screws with correct sized ones strapping ends together etc. etc. what a nightmare. Absolutely the worst quality. Undoubtedly made in China. BUYER BEWARE!
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.
