First the good. It is like a nice-looking piece. Now the bad. It is poorly made. You'd be much better looking for something else, unless you only want this for a couple of years and change up your major furniture on a regular basis. The top came with a big dent right up front. Bad. The top also does not fit flush to the base so there's an obvious space, which makes the piece look cheap. If you don't keep it covered and are very vigilant, there will be marks all over the top. I've had mine now for 8 months, and it's only my husband and me and we don't even use the TV area much and yet it seems that nearly anything that makes contact with it makes a mark. This is a really big disappoint . My only consolation is that there were specials and discounts that I used to purchase the item and I got it for about XX.XX Knowing what I know now, I would never buy it again and would not recommend.
Love the fireplace and glad I chose a real flame over the electric one. Be sure to buy the 13 oz real flame cans- the "junior" ones the sell are too small and will result in a tiny flame. Doesn't emit much heat but does create a nice setting.

We have an older home in Minneapolis, and this was a great addition to our living room. The only hesitation I have is the gaps/spaces between the fireplace and shelves. It could be constructed a bit differently but I really love the look of it!
