I purchased this for the foyer (entrance) of my home. I was concerned, based on the description that it would have a red or cherry-like finish. I was happy that it didn't. It is truly an espresso, dark brown-black color. The wood grain markings are very deep which will help to hide scratches and makes it look more expensive. The back is completely unfinished, so it must be placed in a location where it is backed by a wall (like in the picture). It is made of light-weight ply-board (similar to the quality of Ikea furniture). If guests are not going to touch this and you place quality decorative items on it, you can prevent it from looking cheap and disguise it as being more expensive. Overall I like it and will keep it.
This is an attractive piece and is a very good buy for the price. However I do want to make other buyers aware of some small caveats: It was very difficult to put together - the instructions actually tell you to have another person on hand, and to literally plan on blocking out an entire day, which struck me as odd considering it's a short depth, short length, simple side table. The instructions were right - almost - it did take two of us 2 hours to put together )and we're both pretty handy). It's expected, in a way, though - you're paying a very low price for a modular piece of furniture - the cost has to give on something...time is what it gives on. After a semi-frustrating process, it was ready to go. Albeit it was slightly lopsided (those predrilled holes are never quite right) but it's not noticeable really at all, and the table looks very smart and expensive once it's put together and adorned with a lamp and some decorative items. The color is espresso wood - dark with a low sheen - similar to the photo. While the piece did come with a few nicks in the finish (again, I'd be more upset if this were a $600 table), after a few strokes with a wood pen in the same color, you can't even tell. We've gotten remarks about how different and unique this table is, and how rich it looks. It's a VERY good purchase. You honestly could not do better with such a low/reasonablel price. The design and shape are extremely nice looking and the table is a great compliment to our home!!! You won't be disappointed with the final result!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? espresso wood - appeared just as i thought it would
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. it doesn't sit exactly straight - off by just a tad. not noticeable though, really. otherwise. also pieces came slightly nicked with the finish scratched off. however, after using wood pen it's not noticeable at all and is still a good table for the money.

This table makes my accent wall look AWESOME! It is exactly what I wanted. There are so many things you can do with it. Right now I have a candle set on top and I am looking to place a mirror above it like in the picture. It's very sturdy. The assembly was a little challenging. I suggest having two sets of hands because of the way it is shaped. :D

As always, fast shipping. I put it together by myself with no problems. Took less than an hour. I had everything I needed, no misaligned parts. I really have nothing bad to say about this piece. It is a solid piece of furniture and looks great too. It was a little taller than I expected so I didn't use it where I intended to but it is a very versatile piece and I easily found another spot for it. I actually made a wine rack out of it. I bought some of those metal hangers for the wine glasses and screwed them under the top piece. I found a small wooden wine holder/rack that matched perfectly from Goodwill and set it in the bottom and now I have a wine rack. It really looks cool. People think I bought it like that. Once again, I am pleased with my purchase from Overstock.com.

I am an avid overstock shopper and I am never displeased. This table was a great addition to my foyer. It wasn't as hard to put together as I thought (based on other reviews). I did it by myself, but it won't hurt to have a second set of hands. The color is a dark rich espresso (almost black) but still lovely. All in all; great product.
This was my first purchase from Overstock.com, and am pleased with this new table for our family room. We needed something attractive to fill space along the wall next to a large tv and under picture frame shelves. My husband seemed to have no trouble assembling it in a short amount of time. It looks nice and holds a plant, and later more decorative items on the shelves below. It has three shelves of display space.
I received the shipment very quickly. You cannot beat the free delivery. I Was surprised at the size and weight of the package. It was small and not that heavy but once you put it together the finished product is impressive. It was 6 pieces and easy to assemble. I was able to do it by myself.

I have been looking for something in my entry for many, many months. A friend had this set in her home, and when I saw it, I knew that was the set for me. I asked her if I could be a copy cat. She was OK with that. Because we live many miles apart we will have few folks that will visit both our homes. I love this set.

The table is very stylish and suits the location in our home very well. My only complaint is the the back edge of the top was neither stained nor painted which seemed as oversight given the otherwise good quality of the piece. In spite of other reviews, it wasn't especially difficult to assemble. This was my first purchase through O.com I was very satisfied and will likely buy other items in the future.

Fast shipment, excellent packaging and fairly easy to assemble ! The table is very modern, sturdy and has a natural wood grain appearance. The color of the table is actually more of a dark chocolate > black (with perhaps a slight hint of red) vs. a "Red Cocoa" as described. Extremely pleased with purchase and look forward to finding more unique items on Overstock!
