Beautiful design and very sturdy. Looks very nice in my kitchen and adds both work/storage space and style. It was a bit of a project to assemble, but the directions were good and everything we needed was included. It is pretty heavy and requires two people to assemble.

I am so satisfied with this island. It is a wonderful addition of very usable and comfortable counterspace and extra storage.Very good quality. It matches the color on the site perfectly. Only one complaint, and very minor in my opinion - the side shelves don't have notches so they slide in and out. All in all, I'm so happy I didn't buy a smaller, cheaper kitchen cart. This was more than worth the money, and looks more like a built-in stationary island.

After several months of comparison shopping both locally and online for free-standing kitchen carts/islands, my wife and I decided to purchase this item. It is a very nice-looking piece of furniture, and the quality is surprisingly good for the money. The only free-standing kitchen islands that we liked more than this one cost at least twice as much. Assembly does require two people, but it was a relatively easy process. A few additional notes: * It was shipped to us via UPS in three 75-80 lb. cartons, so be prepared for a very bulky delivery. * We did our very best to find something that would closely match our honey maple kitchen cabinets, and while this item still looks very nice in our kitchen, it has more of a light brown tobacco finish than a golden finish. It's not a big problem, but the color in the picture appeared slightly "warmer" to us than the product itself. On a positive note, the wood finish is not at all grainy-looking like a lot of other oak furnishings that we have observed. * We passed on ordering the island combo unit with the two matching stools since our kitchen has space limitations, but after seeing the quality of this piece, we now wish that we had ordered the 3-piece set. Overall, I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is seeking a very nice kitchen island for less than ****.
We were confident about ordering such a large and heavy piece of furniture online, due to the positive ratings, especially by someone who had a partial return. Turns out the top of our kitchen island suffered a gouge in delivery probably by a fork lift truck. We emailed a photo of the packing carton, and the top, showing the gouge to Customer Service. We got our replacement top in about 3 business days. This experience was very positive. Great product, good pricing, fast shipping, and excellent Customer Service.
I have never shopped Overstock.com before so to have such a positive experience, I'll definitely purchase again. I love my kitchen island. I received it in three boxes and my husband out it together in about an hour and a half with no problems. I love the little end shelves. I put my regular salt and pepper and spices on one shelf and a few regularly used cookbooks on another. It's great for placing small appliances and keeping them off the countertop. I would definitely recommend this kitchen island.
This kitchen island arrived quickly as promised and packed unbelievably well. It was easy to assemble, very stury and adds not only extra storage but a functional beauty to our most used room; the kitchen. We encountered a small flaw upon delivery and it was handled quick and efficiently. I'd like to credit a woman named Helen for all her help with that. Thank You!
The piece was very heavy and very hard for an average person to assemble. Once we got it together, we realized the shelves are not quite long enough to fit in the open spaces. I contacted Overstock and they looked into it. Their conclusion was that we didn't assemble it correctly and need to readjust some connections. That is totally impossible. There is no way we can turn it over, AND the way it goes together, things fit into pre-set slots. There is not way to make it tighter or adjust locations. So, we are living with it as is. It's okay. If I got another one, I'd get one with cabinets on both sides so the spaces aren't so deep. It's hard to use the back half of the storage areas since they are so far back.
I researched and researched for the best possible price on this kitchen island as there were so many of this particular piece located on many sites. Overstock happened to have the BEST price going. I love this new piece of "furniture" for my kitchen. It looks fantastic. It was very easy to put together .
I love this piece; it's both beautiful and functional! We've put all our bakeware and plastic storage containers in it. And there are decorative shelves on the sides which hold our old fashioned canning jars filled with dried fruits and nuts. My only negative comment is that the top should be made of a more rugged material instead of the exact same wood as the rest of the piece; I would have preferred granite or butcher block. The first top we got was damaged in shipment, which might not have happened if it were a different material. I must say, though, that Overstock handled the replacement in a fair and timely fashion.
