I'm very happy with the way this media center turned out. I was able to assemble it on my own which was a plus. One piece of advice I would give is to not tighten any of the bolts on a particular level of the stand until they are all at least partially installed. I made the mistake of tightening one side & wasn't even able to get the other side's bolts in the holes. Once I loosened up the other side I could shift the pieces & get the remaining bolts inserted.

I agonized and looked at countless options for my son's room. We were giving him a TV for his room and needed something on which to set it. Decided on this because it was not just functional but it was good looking. I bought end tables from Overstock a couple of years ago that are similar in look/construction and I adore them and get endless compliments on them, so I gravitated towards this. It arrived and was SUPER heavy. I struggled to relocate the box. Needed a dolly. So, it was clearly solid in materials. My husband assembled it quickly and it looks SOOO good. It really is beautiful and the 39 inch television looks really smart on it. It's nice because it has some room on either side for his charging station for gaming controllers and his stack of video game boxes. It is definitely a piece of furniture that will last a long time, not just in construction, but looks. I am certain this will be used for endless years and may end up in his first apartment/home someday. I'll be reluctant to see it go!

Simply amazing TV stand. VERY sturdy and heavy, quality furniture, which is what I expected, based on the reviews. The color is certainly lighter than in the picture though, which I don't mind. The rustic/industrial look of the wood is very beautiful. Simple and chic. I was planning to also use it for books, but the space in between the shelves is not big enough, unless you put the books in a laying position as opposed to standing, which is what I am going to do.
Received the shipment very fast. I had ordered the entire set but all of it turned out much much lighter than what was shown online. The wood was a very light golden brown, no dark tones what so ever. Had to return everything.
This table is a good value. It takes a bit to assemble and isn't the most user-friendly in that regard, but it isn't too difficult either. The materials are durable and the price is right for a good quality, stylish media table.
We bought the Elements side tables first and were so pleased with them that we added the coffee table and entertainment center. All pieces are very easy to put together and are solid pieces. I'm very impressed with this entire line. At first I was concerned about seeing the cables, but it really isn't that bad!
Is it also made of solid wood like its matching coffee table shown here? And why does the color look different?

Hello weeho, we appreciate your inquiry. Although both items are from the same manufacturer, they are made in different color finishes. We hope you have found this information helpful. Thank you for shopping with us. Have great day!overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 5, 2013
Yes it matches the coffee table. The photos look like they are darker or lighter, but they are all the same woodheylyss on May 13, 2014
It's a very long piece of furniture. I have a 50 in and it easily fits. I'd think it could accommodate a 55 in TV just fine.js88 on Aug 23, 2013
Hello p0lished, This is a great look however the width is 54 inches and could not accommodate your 55 inch television. Perhaps SKU 13511282 could work for you. It is 56 inches wide and has a similar appeal. I hope this helps you!overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 23, 2013
55 inch would fit fine. It is a pretty hefty standheylyss on May 13, 2014

Are there any support bars below each shelf to prevent warping (apart from the frame), or are the shelves only mounted to the metal frame?trumpetvector on Mar 17, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
