Overstock.com has order processing, delivery, and customer service down to a science. I received the cabinet within a couple a days of ordering. There are four plexi-panels on the doors. One had a deep scratch that bothered me, the other three panels had minor scratched that may be fixed with a plastic polish. Overstock customer service replaced all four panels. The panels are easy to remove, they are held in neatly with plastic washers and screws. Every thing was carefully packed with foam padding on the doors, yet they still got scratched. May be if the manufacturer put that cling plastic on the panes it would absorb the minor shipping scratches. The cabinet is very easy to assemble. The wooden pieces are all clearly marked with numbers, and all of the hardware is packed separately in individual lettered pouches. Except for the very large bolt and screw packet, there was an extra screw in each of the packets. The instructions are clear to follow. You should review them entirely (there are two sets of instructions in the same pamphlet, one for a single unit, and one for assembling stackable units). Just complete each diagram in order, one at a time, sorting the required lettered and numbered pieces, and it is a breeze to put together. I am an old lady, and it took me about 30-35 minutes. Considering that this is knockdown furniture, its quality is much higher then its price tag. All eight sides of the pieces are finished (that impressed me). The interior shelf has three-adjustable positions. One problem was the four block legs. The pre-drilled holes were off if you wanted to attach them (like the photo) with the two sides with ogee cuts cut facing out, and flush with the cabinet. It is possible to attach the blocks, with a 1/4 ledge on the outside (not flush). Or, you could turn them around so the straight cuts were facing the outsides and the blocks lined-up perfectly (flush). I am handy, so I positioned them the way they should be, (flush with the outside corners of the cabinet), and then screwed in new holes without cracking the lower shelve. (Could not find a drill to make pilot holes.) I purchased only one cabinet for my knitting room. Was planning to put in very heavy binders and considered reinforcing the inside shelf in the middle because each binder weights 7-9lbs. With the shelf set at its highest position, the lower shelf accommodates the height of the binders, and the top shelf could be used for smaller books. Binder widths up to 10 1/2 (usually 1-2 1/2 binders) will fit exactly. The Three- and four-inch binders with d-rings (12+ deep) are to long for the shelves and the doors wont close. Instead, I am using the lower shelf for larger format European, and reference books, and the upper shelf has specialty knits stacked and laying flat. I would like to purchase two more clear panel stackable cabinets for the basement, to store flowerpots, vases, gardening, and arranging supplies. But first, need to carefully check the dimensions for a neat fit first.

This was a nice purchase for us. The first one shipped was pretty badly damaged, but I refused it and within a short time I had a replacement that was just fine. Ostock.com was very helpful in arranging the replacement shipping, so other than a little inconvenience, it was fine. The buffet holds all of our specialty glasses, two silverware chests and a wine rack, and is a classy addition to our dining room.

I saw chairs like this in a specialty shop. I ordered these and they were just what I expected. They were a little difficult to put the seat on but other than that....perfect!

These chairs were roughly *** a piece after my discount. I have seen chairs like this for over *** each at specialty stores. These are beautiful. I did take another reviewers suggestion and scotchguarded the chairs before my husband put them together. Very nice chairs. Chairs are a light oatmeal color.

We ordered 4 of these stools for our island. I was going to buy them from a large department specialty store for twice the price, but saw them here and figured I'd go for it. They arrived quickly and were easy to assemble (legs onto the tops). The colors of the stools that came together match, but the second set are a little bit different from the first. It doesn't matter to us because we have a lot of dark wood but it might bother someone who is really picky. We have 3 little boys under 6 and they are all over these stools. They are still holding up well to washing, pushing, dropping, etc. My father (who is a larger man) thought that they were really comfortable and would sit on them to read the paper! They are wooden stools, so I didn't buy them for comfort, but they are great for a quick breakfast.

A stricking urban look. Priced below what I would expect for this look and quality. Extremely well done specialty packing to ensure safe delivery. I'm delighted!

Although these chairs are lightweight (you don't have to wrestle with them to get them pulled out from the counter), they are very sturdy and comfortable.If you are looking for chairs that are EXACTLY the same, these chairs are not for you. There are variances between the two chairs I received, which makes them more interesting but this look is not for everyone. Even without a cushion, these chairs are comfortable, and nicely proportioned. A slightly higher finish would earn this product 5 stars. Then again, they were available for a much higher price at a high-end specialty store, so I am not complaining.

I am very please with these stools - I had found a very similar one at a local specialty store for twice the amount. I did not have any issues with the finish on the seats - it is smooth and other then using a furniture oil, I did nothing to them. I would definitely recommend them!

We ordered this buffet to use for glassware in our storage-challenged kitchen. Pros: -Looks great! Once assembled, this is a very attractive piece of furniture. It looks just as nice as other products we considered that cost 2 - 3 times as much. -Tons of space. It fits all of our specialty glasses (wine, champagne, etc.) We have about 8 sets of 6 - 8 glasses stored in the glass-paneled compartments, and there is still some room left. We are using the middle as a liquor cabinet and were easily able to childproof. -Adjustable shelves. -Stable. Once full, this thing isn't going anywhere. Cons: -Assembly. There are a ton of pieces and it is time intensive. That being said, it's doable if you keep organized. It took me 5 - 6 hours, mostly by myself. The trickiest part (at least for me) came at the very end with the attachment of the cabinet doors. Read the instructions carefully and make sure to adjust them properly. They will fit right, but you will likely have to spend some time adjusting them.
