Excellent... heavy... good quality... very dark in colour, but definitely not black... a couple of hours of put together time, but not a reflection of bad instructions just a reflection of how well made it is. I have the side table too and they match perfectly.
The table arrived within three business days and was well packaged. The instructions were clear, and the parts were neatly labeled. Despite this, it still took me about three hours to assemble. Except for the drawer bottoms, all the pieces are made of solid wood. The dark espresso finish looks great and gives this table a sleek, contemporary look. Also, all the drawers glide smoothly. One of the drawer backs, however, was broken in two pieces right out of the box, so I had to glue them together temporarily to complete the assembly. I e-mailed Overstock.com for a replacement part, and Overstock.com quickly replied that it would be on its way. This is the fifth table that I and my wife bought from Overstock.com in three weeks, and we are quite happy with the price, quality, and customer service.
I just ordered this coffee table and I love it! It is absolutely gorgeous and the quality is impressive - especially for the price. I searched for months for the perfect coffee table and I finally found it. Apparently it is hard to find a practical table that has storage and actually looks nice. This one has it all and I would definitely recommend it.
WE HAD PREVIOUSLY ORDERED AN END TABLE. WE LIKED IT SO MUCH AND THE QUALITY WAS SO GOOD, WE ORDERED THE COFFEE TABLE. IT TAKES A WHILE TO ASSEMBLE BUT IT IS GOOD QUALITY AND VERY ATTRACTIVE. WE HAVE SINCE ORDERED TWO ADDITIONAL END TABLES. THE FURNITURE IS HEAVY SO YOU WON'T BE MOVING IT ALL THAT OFTEN.
I bought this coffee table not too long ago and it fits in perfectly! I also recently found the exact same table in a Pottery Barn catalogue for double the price I paid. It made me so happy! The table is VERY sturdy - even difficult to move by yourself because it's pretty heavy. If people put their feet up on it, it won't move all around. The edges are perfect and it has very clean lines - very subtle but beautiful. The color is a very dark brown but it won't be confused with black. As for assembly, it took my boyfriend and I about 2-3 hours to assemble it. If I did it by myself, I would have had trouble when I had to piece things together because the table top itself is very heavy. This table will last a long time. The internal structure is put together with pegs so it's extra sturdy. Follow the directions and stay focused - you'll be fine putting it together and it'll be worth it!
When I first saw the wood it looked black, but it is actually a deep brown, expressso color they call it. It was difficult to put together - my husband is excellent at these types of things and it took him 4 hours. However, the product is nice, and the table is functional which is why we liked it -the spot underneath for magazines and the drawers for family games, cards to play, and other stuff that tend to make a living room look messy. So overall, it is what I expected and the prior reviews I read about it seem accurate as well. It was a bit pricey compared to the others on the site, but it has the drawers which are a bit bigger than I thought and the nice magazine area underneath the table which is a plus as well.
We were looking for a nice coffee table for some time now. We decided to check out Overstock, and found this coffee table and its matching end-table and based on the reviews we decided to give it a try. We are extremely pleased with the appearance of the tables, and these are well-made, and heavy pieces of furniture. They come in a beautiful dark brown that looks almost black depending on the lighting. The simple design looks great in our living room, and now I am even thinking about getting the console table as well to complement the overall look. It does however take a lot of time to put together, so set aside 3.5 hours to get it done, and another 2 hours for the end table. Highly recommended!
Came packaged very well - in two boxes. Assembly was very long, but I've never assembled furniture before. I figured it out though! It looks very modern and very slick - the drawers glide very smoothly. I found it easier to insert the "camlock" nails after connecting the parts, because otherwise camlocks prevent the nails from going all the way in. The table is also very heavy, so be prepared to ask for help. But like everyone else said, it was well worth the effort!
This table is better than I expected, especially for the price. The assembly was a bit lengthy, but I did it on my own without much difficulty. It's solid wood, very sturdy and worth the assembly effort. Even the drawers slide very smoothly giving the table an expensive feel.As others have noted, it's NOT black, it's a dark brown Expresso color and looks great.
This table is amazing. It is elegant and sleak. An almost identical table sells at a big retailer for 5 times the price. Both tables look exactly the same. This table is heavy duty, sturdy and of fine craftsmanship. My husband was too busy to help, so I put it together myself. Wasn't the easiest things I've ever done, but certainly not too difficult at all. Such a great value. After you put it together, you get the feeling that you got the best deal ever - which you did. Buy it before it goes away!!
This is a beautiful, sturdy, coffee table... but boy the other reviewers were right...it was tough to put together! It's worth it, though. Although we did notice that the side was chipped when we unpacked it (it's small, but noticeable). It's quite heavy, so you won't be able to slide it around. This is a high quality, smart looking table. I don't recommend buying it if no one in the house is handy, though--- and if someone is, leave 3 hours to put it together.
This product is great and looks identical to the similar products that are for sale in the higher end furniture stores. My only warnng is to be careful and the wood appears to chip easily. Thankfully some deep brown espress furniture pens and polish help to hide it.
The table took about 2 hours to assemble with a clutch-assisted drill/driver. Cam-locks and dowels are standard in RTA furniture, so no surprises. The instructions were cogent. Finish is quite fine and attractive for this price point. Great value in a solidly-built storage coffee table.
The table is beautiful, made of solid wood and looks fantastic once put together. The assembly was not nearly as terrible as other reviewers said it would be. It took two of us 1.5 hours and there weren't any problems along the way. It looks great, easy to do in an evening and is definitely worth the price (far less expensive than other, similar styles). Very happy with the purchase and will be buying the side table soon.
