Like the other reviews said, the table is a little bigger and taller than it looks in the pic but PERFECT for my living room. Adds class and ties other wood together in a warm way. I like the height for my sofa, my old coffee table was was supercheap and low. Love the shelf, have my favorite coffee table book (Wisdom with Clint Eastwood's pic on the cover) and coasters on the shelf, plant on top. Looks more expensive than the price which was quite reasonable. Love the oval shape-no corners for those of us who bump into things...
This table was the last piece of furniture to go in my redesigned living room. It is the perfect size and shape for the room and the sofa. The table top and legs are attractive and good quality, but the lower shelf is similar to a piece of thin, ratty wood that doesn't really match up with the rest of the piece. But being that it was a lower shelf, it didn't bother me as much. I'm really happy with this purchase overall.
The first table came damaged. The edge of the top looked like it was chewed. The wood is soft. Overstock replaced it, but it took awhile. The second table was ok. It is obviously not a high end product (nor did I expect for the price). I needed a table for our new home for the holidays and it worked until I found what I really liked. Overstock said just donate the first table. They did not want it sent back (which was good). I kept it until the new table came which was a good thing as the second table was missing a bracket which we were able to use from the first table. Quality control is not in place on this item.
I originally bought this coffee table to come along with me to my new apartment. However, once moving in I realized I needed a tv stand a lot more than a coffee table and months later, it remains my tv stand!! It is currently holding an older model (heavier) 52" tv without a problem. The table is taller than I imagined, but that's only because I hadn't actually measured out the dimensions to get a true pitcure of how big it would be. This is a sophisticated piece at a very reasonable price. It is easy to find other pieces for your living room to match it's style and color too. The package was delivered without flaw, in a secure and tight packaging to prevent against traveling damages. If you like what you see in the picture, I assure you will be more than satified with your purchase.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? pretty accurate, maybe just a hint darker in person, but really depends on the lighting it's in...
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The table is definitely sturdy, solid, and overall great quality. The bottom shelf is definitely "weaker"/thinner wood when compared with the other components however, this does not appear to make a difference in any way.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The dimensions of the table were accurate, and described pretty darn close to as seen in person.
Overall best purchase that I have made thus far at Overstock......If you are in the market for a great coffee table that is absolutely stunning and not totally expensive, then purchase this, it will not disappoint. The table that I received initially was marred and had a small but noticeable gash around the edge, called Overstock and wa....la, they shipped me out a new table in PERFECT condition. The best customer service ever!! In tough times as these, you need to know that you are spending your money in the right place...Overstock gives me that comfort. BEAUTIFUL TABLE, I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS, BUT DON'T TAKE MY WORD FOR IT.......PURCHASE YOUR OWN :)
We needed something sturdy to go with basic decor that had no glass in it and wasn't too much money. This table checked all of the boxes. It has been up for about two weeks and takes my 2-year-old playing on it or our feet on the bottom shelf. It looks nice--nothing fancy, but nice. I also liked that it was an oval shape because we have another child on the way and I don't want to cover table corners. My husband was also able to put this together in about 15 minutes--much faster than most of my daughter's new toys.
So far this table seems very sturdy; it is attractive looking in my family room with my sofa, which is almost the color of the one in photo online. I like having the bottom shelf! And it was easy enough to assemble without any other help.
Pros - Easy to assemble, sturdy, good size, very useful lower shelf, LOVE oval (why aren't more coffee tables oval?) Con - hot mugs or glasses leave a mark, you have to be careful if you put your feet on furniture that solvents like mosquito repellant aren't on your skin, they seem to dissolve the table finish, you need to re-tighten bolts after 6 months or so.
