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 ****.
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 .
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 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.
I needed a central island in the kitchen and have one custom made costs more than $3000. When I saw this island and other reviews, I thought it would be worth a try since it is relatively inexpensive. The package arrived within a week and putting it together was not difficult but it did take two people. We were very please with the product, the color is exactly as shown online and it matched my kitchen cabinets perfectly...people visiting thought it came with the original kitchen!
Easy to put together if you follow the directions EXACTLY. Needs 2 people since it is heavy. The color was exactly like it appeared on line. Friends came over yesterday and commented on how good looking it is. Would be nice if the top was finished in urethane so it resisted normal kitchen use - moisture, scratches, etc..
The Island was easy to put together, the screws and holes all matched. The directions were easy to read. We had a problem with the first shipment, more with UPS. The original Island was slightly damaged, but the turn around time was short, from the delivery, return and delivery of the 2nd Island, It is real wood, and a good buy. Very pleased with the product and service.
Love this. Looked around at several stores for something like this. I was actually hesitant to buy something on-line without being able to see it first. I loved the look of it so much I had to have it. So glad I did. I didn't buy the stools, I went to a local mill store and they match perfectly. Couldn't be happier with this. Lots of storage and looks awesome in my kitchen.
I am very pleased with the island. I was able to assemble the unit by myself except needing help lifting the top into place. The directions were explicit and the tools needed were included. (I am a 74 old woman) The island is sturdy, well designed, enhances my kitchen and gives me the extra storage and counter space I needed.

Solid piece of furniture with good detailed features. Takes two to put together, instructions easy to read. Doors did not close correctly. The Home Style customer representive was not helpful at all with trying to correct the proble. The Overstocks customer representative was very helpful but the replacement part didn't fit any better and the island was returned.
