For an inexpensive nightstand, this could have been an OK piece. Getting it shipped without damage is a problem. Between the lousy and inadequate packing by Safavieh and the bashing by UPS, it doesn't stand much of a chance of arriving undamaged. We ordered two and one was okay, but the other had a broken back and broken legs. Safavieh had taped a few small pieces of styrofoam to the corners and sides and encased it in a thin layer of bubble wrap, but left plenty of exposed surface to be vulnerable to breakage, denting and crushing. The box arrived with holes punched in it from bad handling. Customer service at Overstock immediately sent a replacement -- but it arrived damaged too, and defective as well. We decided to keep it rather than go through the hassle of asking for another one. Again, there was a rip punched in the box from handling, and a part of the exposed side of the stand was punched in. In addition to the damage, one leg was missing an end cap and one leg had an end cap put on crooked. We took an end cap off the first broken stand and had to pry off the crooked one and reposition it. All three nightstands had defects along the edges of the drawers where the finish had been damaged and uncolored wood was exposed. I was able to cover that up with stain. Safavieh gets a D in quality and an F in packing. I don't think we will order anything else from them, especially on a "no return" basis as this piece is. Buyer beware.

Just like the other review, this product came to us VERY DAMAGED. They are very light weight, mostly made of particle board. I got online that very night to return them for a refund and overstock is sending out another pair. I asked for a refund, knowing that anything they ship me will be damaged. These nightstands are not worth $@#%^& dollars. Buyer Beware.

Even though there were 2 poor reviews of this item I took a chance on it. The reviews said that the item arrived damaged. I'm glad I took a chance as my stand arrived in fine condition and it fit nicely where I wanted to put it. It's a bit small so be sure and look at the dimensions to make sure it is high enough for your space. I looks quite nice though stylewise. I was happy with my purchase
