It took about two and a half hours to assemble. The only two drawbacks were the unit only has space for one accessory. (DVD or Cable Box) The two glass side doors don't close properly. As many times as I've tried with different positioning of the door hindges, the doors BULGE out at the hindge locations. I don't believe I'm the only one that had this problem.

We wanted something modern yet classic to hold our television, and also wanted a fireplace for the room; this product offers both, along with limited storage/display area behind the glass doors. My stepson and grandson assembled it for me, and it took them about an hour with no difficulties.

Beautiful piece. 2-3 hour set up time with one other helper. Arrived with two pieces slightly damaged during shipping; called company's customer service and easily received new part in mail. Slim.from side and authentic mission style drawr pulls, handles, glass doors and side panels.

This product is great. The unit is really nice looking and holds a large TV. The glass is tempered and the doors fit perfectly. It assembled easily. It is nice to have help with putting the top on because you have to align both sides and several screw/cams, but other than that its a one person assembly and the end result was better than the online photo.

An excellent fit for my midcentury modern house. I sealed the fireplace flu since it was very drafty and so don't use the gas, let alone burn any logs. This is the perfect peice to place flush with the fireplace facade, while offering an elegant way to use large 4" diameter candles, which I found for $10 at Ikea. It was also a great value as custom glass doors would have been far more expensive. This offers a way to actually use the space in a more interesing way with using candles.

WE LOVE THIS!! My husband and I got this as an early Christmas gift to ourselves. We love fires & warmth -- and our tv stand needed to be upgraded. It completed our small living room perfectly, since we just got a new couch it finished off the look we were going for. Not to mention that we can keep the house heat down, since we are often in the living room & the fireplace keeps the main area heated nicely. MY ONLY WARNING -- its that this product ships in TWO BOXES, but only one of them has a tracking number. I freaked out when we only received the "firebox" part & not the wood. I thought they sent the wrong one or I ordered something incorrectly. After calling Overstock -- they had no idea if it comes in two boxes or not (which I was asking for, wondering if I should wait or worry about returning etc...) so they sent another one just to be sure (which we then had to send back!) but the second box of the wood parts arrived a few days later. The wood box is over 70lbs, and that maybe what held up UPS on delivering them together. Other than that little snag -- we also ran into an issue with attaching the front glass doors -- using a hand screwdriver I (an 8month pregnant, 140lb woman) was stripping the inside of every screw attempting to attach anything to these doors or the doors to the console. We have yet to figure out how to attach them with the screws half in & half out...

We needed a stand to hold our new HDTV and also one that was able to hold my "old school" stereo components (which it does quite nicely since the shelves and glass doors are wider than most other stands out there). The added fireplace sealed the deal since my wife has wanted one previously. The unit arrived in a timely manner, but unfortunately suffered some delievery damage to the front of the main bottom piece and the glass in the box that contained the firebox was shattered. Immediately contacted Overstock customer service and they were extremely helpful. They agreed to send us a new unit and they opened a UPS damage claim on the first one. So, the second unit arrived (undamaged this time) shortly thereafter. It was not difficult to build, but I did take note of several issues with it. The staining (Espresso) was not the best on a lot of the pieces. It was not uniformly applied. Darker in some areas. lighter in others. Fortunately, most of the areas are not readily visible. Also, some of the veneer on the edge of the front piece is not properly glued down, but again not very noticeable unless you rub a finger across it.. Lastly, some of the anchors and screws (cam locks) that are used attach the parts to each other did not line up properly, so it took some doing to get them to work properly. The bottom line is this: I can't recommend this item overall. It is nice enough once built and serves it purpose, plus the fireplace is very "cozy", but the quality of the materials along with the aforementioned issues left me feeling like it was not worth the price we paid. Too much of a hassle however to disassemble and return. Too bad it was one of the few stands out there (if not the only one!) I found with the features that we were looking for. Next time, I think we will stick to the local "brick and mortar" stores to know what the quality is like before we make a purchase like this in the future.

I shop online all the time, but was extremely nervous about making such an expensive purchase online, and a purchase of something that would be really hard to return, at that. I'm so glad I did. This may be pressed wood, but it's much higher quality than I've seen in self-assembled furniture in the past. It's solid and sturdy, with beautiful, wood & glass doors that close securely. Although I haven't shopped around for electric fireplaces, I've seen several at other peoples' homes/apartment buildings, and the flame box on this one is at least as pretty as any of the others I've seen, if not more so. The wide upper section provides lots of space for at least two electronics devices. I have three, and when I set the third on top of one of the other devices, I realized that the crossbeam that supports the top (the TV platform) blocked it from going back as far as it needs to, so it's sticking out into the living room. I'm glad for the crossbeam, though, as it's a very thick/sturdy crossbeam, and I don't have to worry about the top bowing or breaking. I haven't used the heater much yet, since it's summer, but I turned it on, and it put out a lot of hot air -- should be a perfect space heater come winter. It took me a few minutes of studying the instructions to know where to start, but once that was done, assembly was fairly easy. All the pieces come separately-sealed, with a sticker identifying each section, so finding the part you need is totally easy. It was a challenge, but I did manage to assemble the whole thing myself, without help. There were a couple of points where an extra set of hands would have been extremely helpful (in particular, hanging the doors), but I was able to do it myself within a reasonable amount of time (2-3 hours, taking my time?). I've never been so thankful for my drill-driver, though; if you don't have one, you might want to get one for this -- lots of parts to screw together. <b>Pros:</b> Beautiful, solid piece of furniture. Stunning and very functional. <b>Cons:</b> Less space for electronic components than expected from picture (although still decent), fire always starts on "low" setting and must be turned up each time.
Depending on how you choose to decorate your indoor fireplace mantel, it can be the room's focal point or an extension of an already established theme. The only thing that can make indoor fireplaces more warm and welcoming is the right decorative accessories along the mantelpiece. Plan your fireplace decor carefully because there are a few common decorating traps when it comes to mantels. Some people crowd the mantel with too many small pieces, while others resort to symmetrical arrangements of objects all the same height. Think about your mantel as a gallery with the potential for rotating exhibits.
