I was comparing this item with products from Ikea. This looks really really sleek - the best thing about this in comparison to IKEA alternatives is the color. This is a really smooth black and not black brown like most IKEA options. It also doesn't look like you purchased it from IKEA.
However, the materials are pretty comparable -- you can see the pieces are made of particleboard. But, the material is a bit more sturdy than IKEA assembled furniture. Why? Because it takes FOREVER to assemble. The directions are pretty bad - just pictures with no step by step instructions, so we would assemble one piece, think we were making progress, and then realize we should have done one of the other steps before attaching certain pieces. We ended up assembling and reassembling for a couple steps. It was a pain, but five hours later, we have a beautiful hutch!!
Bottom line: so worth it - looks amazing, but wow. be prepared to spend a day working on this puzzle.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Looks really nice and sophisticated
i pass it in the every morning and I smile everytime I see it. Is so nice, worth every penny. Though didn't spend much but it's worth it every penny. Shipping was very quick, about 2-3 days and the assembly guide made it very easy to assemble. The quality and style is all there, all around gorgeous.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Black

How accurate was the on site description of the product? Is quite accurate
I received this buffet yesterday (quicker than estimated shipping) and put it together this morning. This isn't any more complicated to assemble than any other put-together-yourself furniture that I have seen before. That being said, it did take me a few hours to completely assemble, but I had to cut some openings in the back of it for cabling to run through (I am using it to house a computer in our conference room at work). The quality is much nicer than you would expect for the price. It does come with a couple of racks to hold wine bottles on one of the shelves (I don't think the description stated that).
There were a couple of light scuffs on the drawer fronts for some reason. They had to come from the factory that way, no way it happened inside the packaging. It wasn't enough to make me call them about it. After a light coat of furniture polish on it, I couldn't see them no matter how hard I tried.
I would HIGHLY recommend this piece of furniture.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very good quality. Probably the best that I have ever put together!
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Just as described.
I like this buffet a lot. It took me 4 days to put it together. I have never assembled any furniture before and I am 8.5 months pregnant. There were a lot of parts and screws but I was able to figure it out using the instructions. The quality is pretty good but two doors have a few scratches on them. I have decided I can live with that. A lot of storage - just what I need.

Very nice, I'm able to fit a lot of my collections of tea set, and it great. Very strong shelves, and easy to assemble type of furniture. The color and the design looks very nice and clean looking. I paid such a low cost compared to what I was planning to pay for it when I say a similar one in person at at a furniture place. This one is outstanding, I like it very much.

After much searching for a long time for a server/buffet that met my needs, at a price I was comfortable with, I ordered this one with my fingers crossed, hoping it was good enough. I was delighted that it's working very well for my needs:
- dark color matched well with my dining table & chairs
- minimalist/modern look that went with my décor, and is not a statement piece
- big enough to store a lot, but still shallow enough to fit in the space I had for it (behind my dining table)
- good height, able to store excess dinner items/food on top when needing more room on my dining table (for dinner parties, etc)
- I like that there are 2 narrow doors on each side, which allows me to open them without having to move my dining chairs
- the doors are big enough to fit placemats. I use the other drawer for misc utensils, cloth napkins, hot pads, etc
Here are the cons:
- As other said, the furniture is like Ikea in terms of assembly, quality is slightly better than what I've bought there before
- I don't like that the drawers are screwed in, not able to pop out like drawers in most dressers, etc. Not a major problem, but it has a hard stop when you pull it out, and I would have liked/expected it to pull out more
- The drawers are quite large, so I bought a stacking drawer organizer to make use of the height. They are also wide (~21"), so make it hard to find something that can rest on top of the drawer to get more space (like this: http://www.containerstore.com/shop?productId=10025614&N=&Ntt=drawer+organizer). So, the one drawer that I use for placemats (which I want/need in this buffet for quick & easy access) is underutilized. It'd be nice if there was something that came with this buffet that helped use the drawer space (height) better.
- Similarly, the space behind the doors is big, with only 1 shelf. I bought an additional plate shelf (http://www.containerstore.com/shop/kitchen/cabinetOrganizers/upperCabinets?productId=10016995) to allow me to use more of the space.
Overall, I'm very happy with it, for the price and style, and after I customized it a bit with organizers.
Despite some concern regarding assembly time, my handy man put it together in less than 2 hours. I wound up with a gorgeous unit that sits in my entry hall facing into the kitchen. I did not have adequate storage in my galley style kitchen, I now have plenty of room for small appliances that are now conveniently located, that were cluttering up closets. I left the wine rack out, opting for the shelf space. This is sturdy well engineered and designed piece. I have been looking for some time for the ideal solution, THIS IS IT. Exceptional quality, looks and finish, nice enough to use anywhere in the home. Couldn't be Happier.
I enlisted the help of a handy friend and it took us 5 hours to assemble but it really requires at least 3 people. Things would have been good had the directions been much better. There are pictures and very few words. There is a lot that needs to be inferred and if you can't get a little creative with the assembly you won't be able to put this together. We were never able to get the top drawers to slide on the track so we just left them out. Some of the dowels were either too short or too long and as a result we needed to secure the sides of the buffet by adding long screws to the corners. We drilled them in from the outside.Otherwise, the sides literally fell off. Be ready to improvise because we ran out of some screws and had way too many of others and we left out the top drawers. Good luck!!!!
I wanted to redo and update my dining room. I wanted something smaller and modern. This fit my specs .My husband put it together. It took a little longer because some of the instructions were incorrect and he had to figure it out as he went along. Good thing he has the head for that - must be all the years of putting together *** furniture. Overall it is a nice piece.
