I bought the coffee table and 2 end tables. They are very sturdy - they are actually much heavier than I expected (it was a little tough getting the coffee table box into the house!). The assembly was straightforward and did not take too much time. They were exactly what I was looking for. My one "complaint", which was stated by another reviewer/customer, is that there is no grout or filler between the pieces of slate. Not that it looks bad, but I kind of think it would look more "finished" since there are (very) narrow gaps between the triangular shaped pieces. You may want to know that while the slate on the tops comes cemented in, the slate pieces that fit in the bottom are loose, and you just set them in place. You could glue them down yourself if you want to, but I haven't seen any need. I'm overall quite happy with the purchase.
The only issue i had was when i opened the box some of the tile pieces from the top of the table had broken loose. My husband put some crazy glue on it and he was able to replace the tiles. I'm now enjoying my coffee table and i even ordered the end tables that go with it.
The table is nicer than I expected. After all the reviews that said the table was hard to put together, I was surprised that it only took me about 30 minutes to assemble it The slate insets in the table bottom are not attached. They come pre-packed and you just place them into the diamond shape (4 tiles to a diamond). A few of the pieces on the table top are slightly chipped, but that doesn't really distract from the look. It's a rugged top that I can have around large dogs and a teenager. Nothing will stain it or scratch it. A huge bonus. The only drawback was that the box weighed 78 lbs. It was hard for me to get it into the house by myself and to hold it all together to assemble. Much better if you have two people to do this.
I was so excited to get this coffee table from all the previous reviews. I am sooooooooooo happy.It is beautiful.I did put it together myself and only had a little issue with getting the bottom piece postioned correctly. The instructions were very clear and easy to follow. It was packed very well and nothing was damaged.Thank You Overstock.com. I will continue shopping here. Just for small stuff as my UPS driver is getting sick of me ordering large items..lol
This table is really pretty and looks so nice in my living room. I was so hoping there was a side table to match it though as in some of the reviews it said that they purchased a side table too, but I couldn't find one.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? The colors looked more blue and beige in the photos, but are actually more dark gray.
- How is the quality of the product? Very good. There is one little dent in the metal around the glass top.
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Pretty much so.
My husband and I ordered this coffee table as a Christmas gift for my parents. It is absoutely gorgeous! And it was so easy to put together!!! The directions said it was a 2 person job, well I have no patience and wanted it assembled immediately so I did it by myself and it was a cinch! Very simple, never needed the 2nd person and I was done in about 25 minutes. The finished product was beautiful, there were none of the uneven tiles that someone else had mentioned, and my parents couldn't be happier. I am online right now to order one for myself now!
I was a little hesitant to order this sight unseen but it is great! It arrived quickly, weighed like 78 pounds, I dragged it into the house and even though most reviewers (and the directions, I think) said that you need 2 people to assemble it I did it alone. I'm not at all handy but didn't find it very difficult, it probably took longer to throw out the packing materials and gather all the cardboard for recycling. I thought it might look cheap because it was so unusual and inexpensive but it has a rich look to it, the colors are rich and it's classy, right down to the bevelled (not too thick) glass. I thought I might pile some newspapers on the bottom part of the table but it's too pretty to cover up. The shipping alone would have cost a lot at any other site so this was a great value! Unusual and classy.

When I realized that it was 85 pounds i knew i made a good buy. Heazy means sturdy. The assembly was almost easy. I recomend not doing this alone. I had to use my legs to hold up some parts but with patience and the right tools it was very easy. Oh it comes with the alan wrinch (spell check) to put it together.. the stones on the bottom are different colors.. mix and match how you like.. easy to cleanand looks great with my new rug.. im happy

This is my first overstock purchase. I did a search on pewter and found this table. I was hesitant in ordering because the description was poor and pictures aren't always accurate. I felt the shipping was slower than other sites, but that's the service you get when it's "free" delivery. Assembly was fairly easy, quicker with two people. I am happy to say that the table goes very well in my den and I'm very happy that the online picture was accurate enough for me to match with my home.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? fairly close
- How is the quality of the product? decent for its price
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? My only complaint is that lack of online description of the coloring.
I could not be happier with this table! It is sturdy, beautiful and earthy. It was well packaged and shipped immediately. I had it in a matter of days! It was easy to assemble. Another reviewer commented that the slates didn't have grout between them which is true, but I don't mind that. The table is both earthy with the tile and steel and airy with the glass. Outstanding price, great value and speedy process!
At first I was a bit wary. It came in pieces and I hadn't realized I'd be putting the slate tiles in. But after I got past all of that. Then I put it together & was impressed at how sturdy it was. Considering the price and the amount of pieces in the box. My one turnoff was the dark black metal that would have looked better toned down to a bronze which is what it looks like in the picture. Other then that it looks beautiful in my livingroom.
