I've been thoroughly enjoying my slate and glass coffee table. It was so easy to assemble, I could have done it myself. The ambience it delivers to our room is undeniable.The slate tiles don't lay perfectly but they are indeed "perfect"...
Good buy. I bought this for my apt and had to go cheap considering I'm keeping my house fully furnished. I figured that if get a cheap coffee table, I should stick with metal and glass. The build on it is good and blends in well with my black leather couch. In conclusion, for the price, this is the best you can do. I would avoid anything with MDF or Particle board for a coffee table (not going to find for less than $***). If you want a wood coffee table make sure its made out of real wood. If you can't afford real wood, go with something like this. Overstock did a great job with the delivery.
I first bought it when I was living in an apartment. The table is neat, very sturdy and easy to assemble. The tempered glass look thin and I was afraid that it might not hold very well, instead I've been using it for two years with no problem. Now I have a bigger living room then I might repurpose it in another room. Not recommend if you have small kids the table corners are pointy, they are not sharp but it might hurt if not careful.
I liked this so much that I am keeping it even with the flaws it came with. The slate pieces on the top are uneven--even though the customer service person I spoke with assured me that unevenness was intentional & part of its charm. I think it is the result of sloppy work. On the other hand it is a nice combination of slate and metal & glass.
While it is heavy, it was easy to put together. It took me maybe 30min. The bottom tiles are loose, which I was aware of from previous reviews. The top tiles are glued in place, however they are not all flat and plush against each other. Some of higher than others and it might look sloppy to some people. It doesn't bother me. I am considering putting grout between the tiles on the top.
THIS COFFEE TABLE IS AWESOME! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! I HAVE BEEN SEARCHING EVERYWHERE FOR A COFFEE TABLE, AND COULD NOT FIND ANYTHING THAT I LIKED. AFTER SEEING THIS ON O.COM, I HAD TO HAVE IT! IT ARRIVED WITHIN A FEW DAYS (REAL FAST DELIVERY). I WAS THRILLED AFTER MY HUSBAND PUT IT TOGETHER (WHICH REQUIRED VERY LITTLE EFFORT ON HIS PART). IT LOOKS RICH AND LOOKS LIKE I PAID A LOT MORE MONEY THAN I DID. IT LOOKS GREAT IN MY LIVING ROOM. I WISH I WOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO ORDER THE END TABLES, BUT I ALREADY HAVE END TABLES. I AM CONTEMPLATING GETTING RID OF THEM AND PURCHASING THE END TABLES TO MATCH. HMMMMM.......I MIGHT JUST DO THAT LOL! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT!

I would be very happy with this table if it weren't black. The description says it's brown. It does look just like photo. My slate is in good condition--no chips like in some of the other reviews. Overall, I am happy.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Looks like the photo but opposed to the description it is BLACK.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The metal on the bottom shelf looks a little cheap but it is about what I expected for the price. Slate and glass are nice.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Description should call color BLACK.
The table arrived quickly. It assembled easily altough having another person was helpful. The table is sturdy. The color in the picture is not representative of the color I received - my table is black. All the pieces arrived undamaged. I am pleased with this table and it meets my needs perfectly.
First delivery was a damaged pre opened product. Looked I got some one else's return when I received box and looked inside. Very disappointed. OS made good and picked up damaged one and sent another. Table is heavy and sturdy. However, several of the pre glued slate tiles were chipped and put in crooked and uneven. There are spaces between the tiles. The tiles should have been put in tighter together, no spaces, OR grouted to give table finished look. Its "ok" for my application and for the price.
