This table has a very modern and unique look. I love the angled shelves, which now hold some books. It is rather low to the ground, so make sure the height is right for you. If you want something much better than Ikea at a similar price, this is a great choice. The top is heavy enough to feel substantial, but not so heavy that I can't move it around on my own. The wood has a grain to it which is not obvious in the photos. The screws are a bit bare-- it comes with some black stickers (which have a fake grain) to match the wood, though I didn't use them. The top surface on mine has one flaw, a shiny spot which is only noticeable at certain angles. Construction was more difficult and took more time than Ikea furniture, but it's worthwhile because it makes for better connections.

We love the table. Also bought a couch from Overstock and they match perfect!! Table is a little heavy so probably need 2 people to move it, especially for the ladies, but other than that we love it. It's somewhat low, which is what we wanted because our couch is lower, more modern.
The coffee table is really good. It's stylish and original. The X shaped feet give it a special look. It is also very convenient to put books and journals with the X. As a secret. I like to put my feet into the X. My girlfriend doesn't like that... please don't tell her :)

Received this quickly with no damages to box or content. Easy to assemble, took spouse about 40 minutes. We were missing one leg plastic end piece, but those are easy to get at a hardware store & since we have it on a rug, it hasn't affected the balance. I have received compliments about it from several 20-somethings who like the contemporary look and clean lines. I have 2 issues with the product, which are why it didn't get an excellent rating: cheesy black stickers included to cover the screw tops. They look terrible, so I am going to try and find something to use in lieu of these, and the legs do not sit flush where the top meets the tops of the legs. This is not really noticeable once the table is right side up, but I think they should fit flush regardless of price. Design is contemporary (metal legs give it the contemporary look) and the "wood" finish is a flat black with a slight grain pattern. Size is very appropriate for a smaller room, because of the openness of the bottom, it does not overwhelm the area. This is not an expensive piece and does not look like one, but having said that, it does not look as cheap as some other inexpensive pieces I have seen at furniture stores. The corners are very, very sharp, so I would not recommend it for a household with small children or animals that run around a lot if you don't want to spoil the look by putting corner guards on it.
