This attractive buffet cabinet is perfect for storing items in a classy way. There are six display shelves built inside the two cabinets, which feature glass doors making it easy to store treasured heirlooms and display them at the same time....more
I saw this buffet months ago on Overstock. I waited too long and was crushed when I went on to order it and it sold out. In the interim I ordered one from another vendor online that looked similar. It was more expensive but it was already assembled and a mahogany to espresso brown. It arrived and a corner of it was crushed. I returned it and imagine my delight when I looked on Overstock and they had 1 left of the buffet that I originally wanted!
It did take my darling husband several hours to put together. He did not say that it was exceptionally difficult, but we do have one pin that we could never get fully flush. You do not notice it looking at the buffet. I am able to fit 12 place settings of Great White dishes in it easily as well as several serving trays, glasses and my silver and napkins in the drawers. For me this is a lifesaver as we live in an attic apartment with sloped ceilings and do not have upper cabinets in the kitchen.
My only slight disappointment is that this buffet presents as black at any point other than when in direct sunlight. In the sun it is a perfect rich beautiful brown. I would just want to make it very clear to any potential purchasers that you need someone who is good at assembly and has some spare time and that this buffet is almost always going to look closer to black than brown. I may also go out and buy different drawer slides so that it is smoother opening and closing the drawers. Other than that it is wonderful!!!
This buffet is beautiful. I read all the reviews, so wasn't surprised or upset by the long assembly time.
The instructions say to assemble in the order given. Drawers are last. I suggest you put one drawer together first. That way you can be sure of fit before completing the buffet. We had to backtrack and take apart because of a mistake we made with the tracks. If a drawer had been available to try, we could have fixed the mistake right away.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? great match
Please tell us about the quality of the product. very good quality
How accurate was the on site description of the product? very accurate
Very good buffet, looks great. Had many pieces but great instructions. An electric screw driver is a real must, especially since the back board is attached with screws (which shows what a great quality product this is!) And two people are recommended for the assembly, since it gets very heavy (again, real wood, excellent quality!)
I was also very impressed with how easy it was to attach the doors exactly right - usually one needs to play with the hinges until it closes straight, but here there are no screws to play with and it was so easy to assemble properly on the first try.
The only downside for me was the color, I expected a dark brown color ("Espresso..") but this is completely and totally black.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The actual product is completely black, not dark brown that I expected.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very durable, good finish, doors attached easily to the right place
I've been looking at the same one at *** , just couldn't get myself to actually pay over a grand for the same piece. I'm glad I finally chose the one with Overstock. The only part that sucked was the assembly...not difficult just time consuming and instructions could be just a bit more clear!
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
How is the quality of the product? For the price very good and solid.
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Yes
This is a very strong and good looking piece of furniture. You need to be pretty handy to put this together and a large area to lay all the piece out. One of the drawer with slot piece broke where the slot is... Luckily I am doing remodeling in my house and had wood clamp and glue to glue it back. Don't over tighten the screw as I broke on of the screw... I spent 6 hours to put it together alone. I would give it a 5 stars if the drawer piece was not broken.

This sideboard/buffet is a big piece of furniture. Be sure you measure properly before you order it and put it together! But it is just beautiful--sturdy, well-crafted, and functional (holds ALL my dishes and stemware). My only problem is the top drawer sticks--but that may be our fault. BTW--as other reviewers have said--if you don't have a lot of time and patience, don't even bother ordering this piece. If you're like me and have more time than money and you want a high-end look--this is it. The day this arrived at my house, I had just seen one exactly like it in my Pottery Barn catalog for ****(w/shipping). This is a deal!
I am a 59 year old female and I was able to put this together by myself. Did not make one mistake. The directions are correct and if you lay out everything exactly like the instructions/pictures show you shouldn't have a problem. It is quite heavy but not unmanageable. Just put together when you are feeling patient and have a few hours. AND be sure you have a battery screwdriver!! There are a ton of pieces, but once you get it together you wont be disappointed. Gorgeous piece of furniture. Using it as a TV cabinet and for components. Using the drawer for video game hardware for the grandkids. its very hard to find a cabinet for TV's with drawers, so went with this buffet. I like the TV higher than the normal shorter TV stands/cabs. Also bought this on black Friday so got an incredible deal with free shipping. Any way, that's my review. Hope it helps. One more thing, it does look black which is what I wanted, but if you turn on bright likes you can see the streaks of brown/expresso color, but in normal to dim light it is black.
This is a great buffet. The thing is SOLID and looks much more expensive than it is. It goes together well and doesn't feel cheaply made. The only area where they skimped was on the drawer rail hardware. They are pretty whatever, but I don't plan on storing anything in them that I will need to access often, if ever, so not a big deal for me. I did think that I should mention the COLOR. A lot of the reviews led me to expect a black buffet. It isn't black. In a moderately lit room it almost exactly matches an ikea "black-brown" finish (but much nicer, obviously). However, when natural light hits it there is definitely a slight warm red undertone, which I wasn't expecting or necessarily wanting, but it is so dark that it's hardly noticeable and doesn't clash with my otherwise cool colored house so I don't mind. This is an amazing piece for the price. Get it.
The buffet looked exactly like the picture, very nice looking. The problem was that the hardware was made of aluminum and very soft. Many of the screws and locking cams broke off when tightened by hand, therefore there was not enough hardware. The worst problem was that although the drawers all lined up nicely they were very difficult to open and close. The problems were totally unacceptable.

I noticed several people commented that this buffet was black. I am trying to match a top china hutch that I have already It is espresso (dark brown) Is this dark brown or black?hero5 on Aug 16, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your question, hero5. This is a very, very dark brown espresso, but I noticed one of the reviews admitted though it looked black a lot of the time, when hit with sunlight, you could tell it was a dark brown. I hope this helps, and thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 21, 2013
It is a very dark brown, not blackjaedeb on Oct 4, 2013
It is not black. It is a very dark brown. I would describe it as black-brown from ikea, but when the light hits it you can see more of a warm espresso tone come through.miamimomoftwo on Dec 20, 2013

Hi atrplace, the shelves are approximnately 20 inches W. Thanks for your interest, hope this helps!overstockcustomercare1 on May 17, 2013
1) Is the back of the buffet finished wood? Might eventually put it in front of a window and the back would be visible from outside.
2) Is the lower back (near the floor) open? I have an outlet on the floor...the buffet would be sitting on top of the outlet...need to run the cords for lamps down the back of the buffet and under it.andi1981 on May 8, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The back panel can be spray painted prior to assembly. The lower back does have a support (approximately 4" in from the back) which will allow for an outlet and cords to be stored behind the buffet.overstockcustomercare1 on May 14, 2013

This buffet would pretty much match any black dining set. Here are some you can browse: http://www.overstock.com/search?keywords=black+dining+set+&SearchType=Headeroverstockcustomercare1 on Oct 30, 2012
It is difficult to see the detail of the top of the unit (the counter top part). Is it possible to get a picture of how it looks? I would like to see how the top transitions to the cabinets. Are there bevels in the wood.sonia2325 on Sep 8, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
