I love this table. It's sturdy and gorgeous - for the price, you won't find anything better. It was pretty easy to put together despite the fact we were missing about 75% of the hardware needed - but a quick trip to ********* and $5 later we were ready to go and had it together in about half an hour or so. Totally recommend this piece to anyone who wants a rustic-look on the cheap. As a side note, which is probably limited to my experience only: the box was damaged badly during shipping. Thankfully there was no damage to the product itself and overstock's customer service were all over it to make sure everything was ok. I really was very impressed with their initiative to follow up with me. I first posted a tweet with a picture of the box and within 5 minutes I had received a phone call and an email about possibly needing to return the product etc. If you have any qualms about ordering online, rest assured the overstock customer service team is super helpful should anything go wrong.
This is a bit smaller than most coffee tables, so it's a good fit in our small old house; and the shelf makes it more functional since we often have piles of books to stow. The shelf is also a nice place to put your feet up. It looks just like the photo, except the finish is somewhat different - it's a slightly darker brown with a very slight touch of gray/green to it, and a satin surface. The metal legs are a similar but more of a darker bronze color. It looks good to me and goes fine with the mix of stuff we already have. It's made with real wood planks, not plywood or particle board or worse; the instructions say it's reclaimed wood - and it could be since there are some small random holes and the surface isn't perfectly flat (but that adds character). It's fairly heavy and sturdy feeling and was very easy to assemble. Lost one star because the nuts and bolts were loose in the box (the little bag they were in had a hole), and because it smelled of drying varnish for a few days after we put it together, and because the cross-pieces on the underside of the shelf have sharp corners that might hurt a bare foot poked under there (you could sand them a bit to fix that).
I was hoping for a smooth-surfaced coffee table, so a reclaimed wood piece was probably not the best way for me to go. Assembly was not difficult and the overall look is great - a really nice blend of some rustic and industrial that would look great in either style room. Because it is made with reclaimed wood, the tabletop surface is not flat and smooth, so it will not work for puzzles in our game room, but it's perfect for drinks, etc because the planks are wide and there is plenty of flat surface, just not a completely flat top. It's a gorgeous piece that is a conversation starter when people see it.
I'm very happy with this table. It was the perfect size for my living room and complimented the industrial loft style I was looking for. The price was great because normally the reclaimed look is really pricey but I thought the price was very reasonable. Every time I walk by it i'm pleased so I know this was a good buy.
I found this table after months pining over a $700 table in a PB catalog. So happy I bought this instead. It is incredible sturdy, looks great and took less than 10 minutes to put together. The first one I ordered was damaged in shipping, but Overstock customer support was excellent and shipped me a new table right away. The new one that arrived was perfect. I do think my table is a little darker than what is pictured, but I expect a little variance when you order a reclaimed wood item. This was exactly what I was going for in terms of style and quality -- at a fraction of the cost.
Great table with a wonderful profile. I purchased this for a salon reception area, the smell was a bit strong upon opening the box yesterday, but it has dissapated today. the customers love it and many have inquired where I bought it from. Easy to assemble and strong base. Hopefully it will hold up to a busy salon and high traffic guest usage well.
Was looking for something unusual for a coffee table and this fits the bill perfectly. Easy to put together and very sturdy. Just love the rustic but industrial look of it. Highly recommend if you are looking for a table that doesn't look like all the rest. Very very happy!
If you like the rustic look of reclaimed wood with wrought iron, this table is a steal. I've been looking for something like this for months, and this table at this price is one of a kind. The only thing you need to be aware of is that when you first open the box, and assemble the table, the odor of the wood is somewhat strong. That completely dissipates after a day or two. The size, the look, the quality (it's heavy!) is all A++.
