This is a gorgeous piece! It looks exactly as pictured and I can't wait to hang it. The first reviewer commented about the panels being in front of the TV. If you look closely at the picture, the TV sits in front of the panels. This cabinet serves as a backdrop. This is a great way to breakup white walls in an apartment when you can't paint or don't want to pay the fees to have an accent wall. The red coloring (almost a rust color) on the inside of the metal inlays is speckled with gold. It's very nice. This item is definitely worth far more than 2 stars. Don't be turned off by the initial review. This is an excellent buy and even better piece of furniture. Be sure to check your cabinet after delivery. The delivery service was rather rough on the boxes. I ordered 2 of these and had to request replacements due to damage caused during delivery. I must say, Overstock has INCREDIBLE customer service. I had to contact them twice, because each cabinet had a separate order number and the damage to one of the cabinets was obvious from the 5 inch hole punched through the box. I decided to check the second box after the great service received through Overstock's CS Chat. I had to call the second time due to a computer glitch. Overstock's CS through the phone was just as fast as the Chat. I couldn't believe it! They are incredibly nice and don't put you through 50 million transfers to get a simple problem resolved. The service was so good that as soon as I finish this review, I'm looking for something else to order for my new place. I'm confident that if there are any problems with the order, the situation will be promptly resolved. :-)

We were surprised when the panel did not come with all of the essential hardware for installation. The instructions called for a Wall-Dog screw that was not included. We had to google what Wall-Dog meant and then could not get one. It is a heavy panel to have to guess about the correct screw to use to install. I was disappointed that this did not come with everything.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The wood portion of the frame is nice. The decorative metal panel is less impressive in real life.
This is a beautiful piece of furniture and I would have given it a higher rating but I will return due to the size of the panel, and the hardware not being included. The frame is a bit smaller than I thought, and my 37" panel TV screen is somewhat hidden behind it....not sure if this is the point of the mount (my setup looked quite different than pictured, since the TV is in front of the panel on the photo). Also, I thought everything was included with the packaging, and it's too much of a hassle to find an actual mount for the TV, then piece it all together.
