When I took the product out of the box, the slate titles attached to the boarder of the table feel off (three total). Besides the glue needing to be stronger and/or shipping needs to handle the products better the table was nice. Also, table was not perfectly symmetrical. Each side was not straight. Style is nice.
I am so pleased I decided to order this table. Whenever I purchase something from a photo online I always keep my fingers crossed that it will be what I was expecting. This table met all my expectations plus more. It is sturdy, the beveled glass top is perfect, the slates surrounding the glass top look natural and adds a distinctive look and it arrived in good condition. Took my husband and I about 20 minutes to assemble it and then we BOTH stood there and admired it. Thanks Overstock for carrying unique and well made products.
Love the table. No breakage during shipping and fairly easy to assemble. Warning: this is packed and shipped in one box. Whew! I move 50 pounds around on a regular basis, but this was tough. Around 70 pounds, and nothing to grab to help lift it. You're gonna want an extra hand if you can manage it. The table is amazing, exactly as advertised. I kept the packaging for the glass top to help me when I move, so that was brilliant :) If this table suits your decor, you're going to love it.
Looked at several in store sofa tables costing considerably more, but liked the style of the Overstock table. We took a chance after reading the reviews and we found that assembly was straight forward, and the table felt substantial and looks high quality.
Thanks to a handy and willing husband the table went together quickly. I really like the slate tile design, that being said, the tiles were not perfect and had a few irregularities. I think that a perfectionist would probably find fault, but I am fine with the natural look of slate and the table looks great where I envisioned it would. The amount of packaging used to protect the table was truly enormous and I could tell that a great deal of effort had gone into making sure it was not damaged--just be aware that slate is fragile and it could crack or chip.
I purchased the sofa table and coffee table for my family room - I wanted tables other than wood. These tables are just beautiful - black iron frame with glass top and slate inserts. Excellent coloring - looks very expensive. Constructed very well - heavy. Easy to put together and something that will last for a very long time.
I love this table. I have been looking for a sofa table for quite some time and this is far better than any I have seen in the furniture stores. It was delivered in no time and it was packaged so carefully. I would have no worries about ordering again!
If you would asked me to rate this product when I first opened my box my ratings would not have been the same. Now I give it five stars!! The table top had a few cracked slate pieces. It wasn't terrible but I was a little disappointed. In the box is a slip with a phone number to the manufacturer's customer service. The slip said to call them directly if there were any problems. We called after hours and left a message, and I was pleasantly surprised to get a call the very next morning. It truly was a "no questions asked" policy. I tried to explain why I was called and they simply said they already have a box ready to ship to me. They sent me a new top at no cost to me. Unfortunately when I opened that one I was even more disappointed, it was in worse condition than the first. I had my fiance call and prepared him to ask if we could return the entire product. The customer service asked if they could try one more time. The third time truly was a charm. It was gorgeous. I put it together and it is even more beautiful than the picture. I get tons of compliments on it and no one would ever guess that I paid $XXX on it. Great customer service and a great product.
